Maui Activities would not be complete without Parasailing. There is a great option for parasailing at Ka'anapali beach in front of Whaler’s Village. You will board a small boat and be taken a few minutes offshore to the larger parasail boat. You will be safely hooked onto the parasail in your harness and then lifted like a bird in the air on an 800 ft. line. The views of Ka anapali beach are amazing.
