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

I had a great time parasailing with the boat crew. Everyone was fun, kind, and absolutely friendly! The ride was wonderful as well. My sister and I chose the 800ft option, and we both had a good experience! When we were high up, I was surprised how peaceful it was. The view is amazing! Would definitely recommend for others.

The boat crew was phenomenal!!! I'm scared of heights but at no time was this frightening. Offers SIM card and go pro to document the ride. I completely recommend doing this! It's an amazing opportunity to see a large portion of the island from the air without fighting blind spots!!!

We(my son and I) decided to try this on our last day on the Big Island before flying home the next day. It was amazing. First the crew was great throughout. You could tell by the delay they did waiting for the wind to come up to be safe that 1) safety was important 2) they knew what was needed... More

It was amazing!! A must do for a reasonable price. Active military is free & spouses are half off!! The boat crew was great & very entertaining. Park in the public parking lot about a block from the Marriott to avoid paying for parking.

My daughter and her best friend wanted to do this as their last adventure during our trip. All the people we encountered that worked for UFO Parasail were super nice and we had no problem putting the girls (both teenagers) on the boat and waiting at a nearby watering hole for them to come back! They had so much fun... More
