My husband and a friend got to check this experience off their bucket lists. They had been wanting to go parasailing for years, and what better place to do it than in Hawaii! Sailing high above the ocean, they had wonderful views of whales and the Big Island of Hawaii. Rising 800 feet above the ocean, it was peaceful and... More

First time parasailing and it was amazing! I got the highest one, 1200 ft, and it was definitely worth it. From up there is very relaxing and peaceful and it is possible to see both a very large portion of the Kona coast and a lot of ocean bright blue features. Wonderful experience! I managed to take lots of pictures... More

I just called UFO to book a parasailing experience at 8am this morning (8/16/14). Sarah had answered the phone and asked her for times available for the 1200ft for 2 people. Told her the website wasn't popping down available times and she was getting smart with me on the phone and made it sound as if I wasn't using the... More

This company was wonderful to work with. I was really worried about safety especially when it came to my kids. My children and I had a great time and an experience together that we will never forget. The crew was wonderful. They were funny, playful but when it came to safety serious. I would totally do it again. Thanks fellas!!!... More

This was our first activity on our vacation. We had two tandems that went on the 1200 ft. adventure. My wife and I were both quite surprised at how smooth the flight went. We were not fans of all the "vaping" the Captain and crew member did during the trip.

UFO was super easy to deal with! The captain & crew were awesome and efficient! Best view of the island by far! We got the extra "gopro" video of our flight & it was well worth it!

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
