It's definitely best if you do this activity with people you know. But the ride was even better because of our tour guides. They were funny and entertaining. Loved the shark bit me story. Talk about gullible. We signed up last minute and I'm glad we did.

We had a blast here! We booked through our hotel concierge and did the 800 foot parasail. It was so much fun and the crew was awesome and friendly. They joked around a lot, and dipped us in the water which was cool :) The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was the view. We parasailed on Oahu, and you... More

This was definitely one of our favorite activities during our visit to the Big Island. The UFO parasailing was just as good and exciting as the UFO parasailing we did on Maui. Both guides were super friendly and made us feel very welcomed and safe. The dip in the ocean at the end was a nice touch and the "flight"... More

One star because I'm pretty bummed. I work in key for a parasail company. My job is to make dreams come true while maintaining the safety of the customers. I've been really excited this whole time to go parasailing, to see how they run their circus here on the Big Island and in Hawaii. The advertising says you can fly... More

First off they called to reschedule me because it looked like it might rain the day we had scheduled. Awesome. Then we get there early and they say hey, wanna go right now? Then, they validated my parking! There's no parking around there except the courtyard lot for 6 bucks an hour, so get that validation. The experience was calm... More

Our guides were very professional and safe! Going up that high is a great experience! We saw Dolphins and it was so peaceful up there! Thanks for making my daughters birthday a great one!

I never imagined parasailing to be so peaceful! Going up is so gradual it's not scary at all. It is so quiet up there you can't even hear the boat. It's amazing! The only downside is that you only get to be up there for about 12 minutes:( I would have loved more time up there! Thank you UFO!

As a birthday surprise (50th!), my friend set us up to parasail! It was spectacular! We had a beautiful day, and really could not have asked for a better experience. I was a little scared, but excited about trying something new. The two man crew was a great! They explained everything as they were doing it, and let us know... More

Don't hesitate to try this wonderful adventure. It's amazingly quiet up there as well as scenic. Well trained staff. " must do" when in Kona.
