This is a unique experience and I fly so high in the air. Fun and safe, and I would definitely recommend this to all my friend..the only not so good thing is that the boat is small and thus a little bumpy...

The crew (Captain Matt and Crewman Jeff) were awesome - friendly, professional and fun. Even when it wasn't your turn in the air, the boat ride was still a great experience. The most amazing part for us - it was the height of whale season in Hawaii so we got to see lots of whales while we were in the... More

UFO Parasail is what it is, fun is what you'll have. The guys do a great job of assuring each rider gets a full and enjoyable experience. If they see marine life, they'll do the best they can to make sure you see it. To include hammerhead sharks. We also saw whales,dolphins and other types of fish. All around great... More

Recently visited Kona aboard the Carnival Miracle and went parasailing with UFO parasailing. The crew was fantastic and had a great time. Booked this after arriving in port by calling UFO. Beautiful sunny day and the views were fantastic.

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.
