This was a great company to go parasailing with!
The shuttle was on time, the driver was friendly and the trip itself wasn't very long from Waikiki. At the time I arrived at the office they were trying to wrangle a huge family into multiple boat excursions and were having a terrible time getting cooperation. Despite these stressful circumstances they were very nice and sorted my single request through the mess very efficiently. I only had to wait about ten minutes before they had a boat for me to join. The two-man boat crew was very welcoming.
The parasailing itself was wonderful! A simple set-up, a few basic safety guidelines and you're flying! Definitely got my 8-10 minutes airborn with spectacular views and felt completely safe the entire time. Start to finish it was very easy, nothing stressful or upsetting in the entire process. This is the kind of thing anybody could do without concern (providing the winds aren't super high).
Afterwards back at the office they let me see my photos and watch my video, then choose whether I wanted photos, video or both. I took the photos by themselves and only had to wait about 5 minutes before I got the CD.
The shuttle ride back comes at scheduled times and dropped me back off right where I started.
All in all, a lovely experience and a highly recommended company!
Girls Who Surf is a great company to go surfing with for the first time! I and one other person were in the semi-private class, meaning there was plenty of attention for both of us from our instructor. He chose a good spot for us to start with enough waves to actually surf on but not so much that we'd get swamped on our first attempts.
We spent several hours out on the water getting a feel for what we were doing, how to paddle and balance and plenty of other nuances. Our instructor was very friendly and easy-going and was very encouraging. He happily answered any questions we had and kept up conversation while we were hanging out waiting for waves.
Pick-up and drop-off were both timely and very convenient. The equipment we used was in great condition and sized well for us.
All in all, a great company for first-time surfers!
