Because of its world-renown reputation, Hawaii is a preferred destination for honeymooning couples. Not surprisingly, approximately a half a million newlyweds visit our isolated archipelago each year. And each island certainly has its romantic appeal, from sunrises atop Haleakala on Maui and cycling along a beach on Kauai to a scuba lesson on Hawaii Island and tandem parasailing—or skydiving for some brave duets—on Oahu. So whether it's a leisurely or adrenaline-pumping activity, couples are sure to enjoy what the islands have to offer.
Tandem rides use a harness method with the choice of side-by-side or back-and-front seating. Operators let you choose between a staying completely dry or taking a dip in the water, with landing and takeoff from a boat. Flights usually last 8- to 10-minutes and reach up to a 500-foot altitude.
