Soar over glorious Kailua Bay and take in the view. The crew was super-awesome and kept us relaxed and upbeat. Take off and touch down were easy-peasy and the twenty minute flight was over before we knew it. Highlight was flying over two humpback whales and watching their huge bodies under the water from on high.

Really good experience. I'd do it again in a minute. I wish I could have had longer aloft, but we all had fun. Beautiful views. Prompt, efficient safety-conscious staff. Don’t skip it and wish you'd done it!

We picked the company primarily out of convenience because their office was on the first floor of our hotel. However, after reading reviews for other parasailing places, I am so grateful that we stumbled upon UFO. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and they also know how to have a good time while keeping everyone safe. The pictures and... More

We had a great ride. Took the 1200' ride and we had awesome views. The crew was great. We took video of our ride and it turned out great.

My husband talked me into this, I'm not so much into heights. I'm glad I did it. The staff was friendly and helpful, and knew what they were doing of course. They made me feel at ease, and we got the boat to ourselves. I wish they would at least give you a picture for the price you pay or... More

My husband, my friend all took a ride with this business and we loved it. They were professional and super nice. It didn't coast much and it was so beautiful from the top. We got lots of photos that we paid for and I posted one of them. We all had a blast. I have nothing negative to say. My... More

We had an amazing time parasailing with UFO. We felt safe and had a really great time. Would love to do it again. Our pictures also turned out great the $35 is worth it to get your fun time caught on camera.

The crew and the overall experience was awesome. I went up with my son, who is disabled. The crew were very patient with him and handled the situation really well. My son was initially a bit scared but once we were up loved the experience. Thanks UFO for helping our family have this wonderful time. We'll be back.
