Parasailing in Bora Bora

Easily one of the best things Pnina and I did on our world trip:

Amazing, isn’t it? And the colors are really like that. I didn’t touch it up at all. The one “modification” I made at recording time was to hold my sunglasses in front of the camera as a kind of poor man’s polarizing lens (which helps a lot).

The price?  $200 per person for 15 minutes in the air. I know, super-expensive. But we think it’s totally worth it.  The lagoon in Bora Bora is fantastic, but you can only see the true colors if the sun is shining and you’re looking straight down.

By the way, this was on our 5th and final day in Bora Bora. The weather was crummy for the first three days — windy, gray, and rainy. The fourth day was beautiful and we were scheduled to parasail, but that plan was curtailed when a huge earthquake hit Samoa and we ran for the hills fearing a tsunami (that never came). Luckily the weather held up one more day.
