This was my husband and mines first time parasailing and to be honest we were both a little nervous at first. The capt. and crew did an amazing job of reassuring us and talking us through everything one step at a time. We also learned that they have some of the best safety ratings in the US which put us...

The boat ride around while others were in the air was fun and a good time meeting the other riders as well. The time in the air was breathtaking... the view was amazing to see the ocean and all the colors and to see the island from a different viewpoint. It is a little pricy but I would suggest others...

We parasailed with Scrambler and Dani at the helm and had a blast! Our boys are 9 and 10 and absolutely, positively enjoyed this experience. My husband and I had parasailed with this company 16 years ago on our honeymoon, so it was exciting to let our boys try it. The smiles on their faces were worth it! It's a... More

Went parasailing with UFO. We received the information online and did what they asked. Got there on time, with time to spare. Then found out they had boat problems, we'd be delayed an hour. They finally showed up with a boat and we got going. Got out to sea and ready to sail, parachute up, but damaged. Had to go... More

The company itself was great. Everyone was helpful and friendly and laid back. But for those of you with back, neck, or problems with motion sickness- skip this excursion. First you get on a raft and it takes you to a slightly larger raft. Then that one takes you to the little boat you parasail from. The boats are tiny... More

excellent experience with knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend for anyone. 5 of us went on same trip. We had a blast, 1200' which gives you approx 600' elevation. Great location with parking in the resort with validation of parking.

UFO Parasailing is located at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Kona, which is round about in the center of Ali'i Drive. In addition to bringing a GoPro, which could be brought up during the parasail experience, we also opted for the photo package - $35. My boyfriend and I have been wanting to parasail together for quite some time, and... More

There were 2 guys : one of them was cool and the other was pretty unfriendly. Up there, we felt very safe and relaxed. It was very calm, zen and cool. We saw whales below us. We didn't suffer from vertigo. We didn't feel sick. It was perfect but we would have wanted that it lasts longer.The 2 guys were competent.... More

We opted for the 1200 foot ride. Wow! The harness rig was comfortable and there is an obvious care about safety all through the trip. The bay water was like glass, and unlike Maui that can't run during whale season they can run at Kona. You're harnessed and tethered in, then you sit with bent knees while the chute fills... More
