Very easy company to deal with. I scheduled our flight on-line and someone from the company called me the day before to confirm. The first time I parasailed was with my husband but this time was with my best friend. She did not have a desire to do it but I scheduled it anyway. While we were flying through the... More

Our family of 4 had a great time. Enjoyed the views and the peaceful atmosphere at 800 feet (was surprised how quiet it was). The staff were helpful and professional.

I went on the UFO parasail for the first time with a friend for a birthday party. They told us to get at the hotel to check in around 12:15. When we arrived at the hotel and checked in they said that they were going to play a safety video when everyone arrived. My friend and I were walking around... More

I finally convinced my wife to give this a try. It was a perfect day weather wise. The staff were very courteous and helpful not just with our reservations but with helping us to have a good time in the area. When we put out we were joined by another family who were very nervous. All of us were made... More

I was reluctant to fly but my family finally convinced me! It was windy but you couldn't feel it up in the air! I'm so glad I did it! The crew was very friendly! I would defiantly fly again with UFO parasailing!

These folks do an excellent job - we 'flew' with them @ Kona and Ka'anapali -- and loved BOTH rides. Professional, friendly, and very accomplished on board - the ride is amazing, exhilarating, and so much fun. The closest to 'flight' you can do -- don't miss it!

What a great way to get a beautiful view of the Kona! Our crew wasn't the most social, limiting their conversations with everyone to asking "Where are you from" and then going about their business, but that didn't take away from the experience. We did the tandem, 1200 foot parasail, and it was excellent! Lifting off from the boat was... More

This year was my 2nd trip to Kona. My sister joined me and is kinda scared of the smaller boats, but I talked to her into the parasailing excursion and she loved it!! It's safe, fun, the crew are awesome and the view is breathtaking! Our first "appointment" was postponed due to wind changes that would've been a danger to... More

We had a fantastic time on our first parasailing experience. We stayed on Maui, but Maui doesn't allow parasailing until May 16 due to whale season. This is something we REALLY wanted to do, so our travel agent, Kay Ryan, (mauikay.com) said there were options. We took a small airplane over to Kona, and prayed the weather would be OK... More

My wife and I took the 1,200 foot parasail and it was awesome. We did a shorter trip years ago in Mexico because my wife was not sure she could handle. With no qualms this time, we did 1,200 and hated having to come down. It was very relaxing and quiet and yet exhilarating at the same time.
