Four of us went as a group. They didn't have a group before us so we went out early. We were able to stay up in the air several minutes longer than normal. Great guys on the boat.

Great experience, much calmer up there than I thought it would be. We had fun and felt safe the entire time. Our first booking was cancelled because of weather, and they worked with us to reschedule later in the week. Easy booking experience, fun time! I'd do it again!!

I was reluctant to do this but it was the one thing my wife insisted on doing and I am glad we did. Parasailing is totally weather dependent so it is often cancelled. If that would bother u to be on standby until the last minute I don't recommend this. But it's worth a little inconvenience for this ride.

This is a must do while in Kona. I'm afraid of height normally, but the captain and his crew made me feel very comfortable and safe with the equipment. Once I was airborne you forget all about the height and just take in the beautiful, peaceful views. Don't let fear stop you. If I did it, anyone can.

I have never done parasailing before so I didn't know what to expect. UFO office shows a video before you go to the pier. Do watch this if you're a novice like I was. The boat staff was excellent in providing you with detailed instructions on how to start and land - thank goodness. The trip itself for me was... More

I had only a few hours in Hawaii while on business, and this was a great way to enjoy my trip! Booked online via iphone, the desk help and the crew were fun and friendly! I did the 800 ft ride, and saw dolphins while I was sailing. Totally worth the time and money!

My wife and daughter went with the 1200 feet and they would do it over again. I went as an observer with my son and it was great to be there. The crew was awesome, I paid extra for pictures to be taken and that was worth it, not being steady in the boat, but can be done by yourself... More

My husband and a friend got to check this experience off their bucket lists. They had been wanting to go parasailing for years, and what better place to do it than in Hawaii! Sailing high above the ocean, they had wonderful views of whales and the Big Island of Hawaii. Rising 800 feet above the ocean, it was peaceful and... More
