Just want to mention that this is my favorite forum and what a great resource it is for travelers!
It will be a first for both my husband and myself to go to the
Caribbean (or leave the US for that matter!) so it is truly a big
event. So we (or really, I) want to parasail. I looked up pages 1-10 of the forum but didn't find any detailed info so I thought I would start this thread.
I'm a non-swimmer, and my husband made me watch Shark Week all summer in an attempt to dissuade me from going. I emailed Islandwatersportsaruba.com for some info on parasailing and was told that it will be done from the back of a boat, take off from a platform and land on the same platform, never having to touch the water. Is this true???
I want to try this while I'm still in my early 30's, but I'm still learning how to swim. So:
1. Where is the best place to go parasailing for the first time?
2. How much does it cost?
3. Do I book now or wait til I get there?
