My husband and I both went up...one of us with each of our girls, who were ages 7 and 9. You have the opportunity to pick the height - and it starts at 600 feet. The boat captain and the guy hooking us into the apparatus were friendly and ensured that were comfortable and they even let us take a dip in the ocean before pulling us back in. The price was very reasonable...alot less than what you would pay if you went through a cruise line and they offer a discount if you book online.

The ride was great, we had great weather and some awesome views. I find the price to be a little much for what you get. You only get about 10 min up at the height they claim but they do state that on there website. Other than that a great time!

On our 1st trip to the Big Island, my husband & I decided to be adventurous & try parasailing. It was our 1st time & we had a great time! Amazingly enough, as loud & bumpy as the ride can be, it's very quiet & relaxing up in the parasail. Great views, professional crew. Would recommend highly.

My family of six (ages 24-60) all went parasailing together. Four of us loved it and the other two (including myself) thought it was fun but got a little sea sick so it took some of the fun off. UFO Parasail had the best reviews of the companies we checked. The staff were great and very accommodating, especially of the people that go sea sick. This company had the longest line we found anywhere with 1,200 ft which is part of why we picked them. We later saw people parasailing in Waikiki but they didn't look like they were close to as high as UFO Parasail goes.

Overall, it was fun and worth doing. Just wish I didn't get sea sick.

Note: If you're prone to get sea sick make sure and take some motion sickness meds. You don't go very far off shore but when the boat stops to change riders it can get very bumpy.
