This was one of our favorite activities of the trip. We had to reschedule due to weather, but the staff did a great job accommodating our schedule. They sent a text reminder which was very helpful. The staff on the boat were friendly and outgoing. We'd recommend this to anyone going to Kona. It was amazing way to experience the... More

The staff was professional, excellent and helpful. I called and was able to speak with a human (thank goodness!) to have my questions answered and make my reservation. The parasailing experience in and of itself was great fun as well! I will definitely do it again on my next visit to the beautiful island.

4 kids and 2 adult went on this excursion. Lucky for us we were the only ones on board. We definitely received the best service we could have hoped for. We went on the highest available height. 3 on 1 then 2 on the other. The crew took their time and we got to see dolphins and the kids just... More

A great way to see the area. I went up with my friend. They tell you to crisscross your legs over and over as a sign you want to come down if you are scared. We had a choice of 750 or 1200 feet. We went the full monte and had a blast! It seemed like we were up there... More

Took my wife & daughter, as the three of us weigh less than 450# we were allowed to sail together. Great experience and we had a blast. The Spinner Dolphins were leaping and the crew got us over a pod of around 50. The owner's son just graduated West Point and this outfit has great deals for military personnel if... More

Had the chance to go parasailing when in town. We were initially schedule to go on Friday but when we got to the reception they informed us the seas were a little rough for the ride needed to keep the rope tight and so we rescheduled for Monday. Not a bad deal at all. There were 6 of us who... More
