It was beautiful. Captain was super nice. We finished parasailing early so he took us to see the dolphin. A must do attraction.

Aloha Hema, thank you so much for the 5 stars! Sounds like your family had a wonder experience, and dolphins too! That's something not everyone gets to see. Hope your family will join us again soon!

This remains one of our family highlights at Kona. Reasonable price, very safe, excellent crews, on time, excellent equipment. booking online is easy. One caveat: go on 8 or 9 o'clock ride for the best view, clear skies, before cloud cover starts.
