“The Screamer, parasailing”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

These activities are a must for family. The purpose of the staffon the Screamer is to get you wet. And let me tell you, you will get wet!! They cater to the guests very nicely and provide a chance to rotate on the boat so everyone can get equally wet. They also run the parasailing and once again the staff was wonderful. They took about 75 pictures of us parasailing at 850 ft. The chip with the pictures is sold for $30, but well worth it. Safety is their priority, but the fun you have in both these activities and great. People, if you are in Hawaii, please do not hesitate to do things you can only do in Hawaii. You will regret it if you don't once you get back home. There's no time like the present.

“Jet Ski- we were forgotten at site”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Me and my bf went jet skiing which was fun. I was pretty scared. The staff sucked.
We booked through hawaii active and were told we didn't need the voucher or credit card as we had already paid and they will have our infomation and just bring ourselves.
We get there they demand to see the voucher, we had to pull it up on email on i-phone. Then they demand the credit card number.
After we went Jet skiing the bus driver left the site (they drive you out about 15 mins to the jet ski area) with out me, my bf and a mother and her 2 daughters. He had forgotten half the group. We had to bloody wait over an hr in the heat for him to realise and return. None of us had phones, water or money on us. We had to cancel our evening plans as the who thing took much longer then stated.
Then on the bus back to the meeting location they had the nerve to offer us the photos from the jet skiing on memory card for $30 lol. I told them we will be having those for free as an apology for leaving us out there. When we get back to the booth we had to explain the whole situation again. We were given the photos for free. Pretty poor quality.

“Good time with the kids”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

We called the morning of the day they kids wanted to parasail. We paid for the 700 feet for 8-10 minutes with a coupon. While we did not time it, it was probably closer to maybe 6 minutes in time but they saw plenty and had a great time. The tour was on time and our 10 year old and 13 year old had a great time! My husband had to ride with them as they did not weigh enough! On the way back down, they dipped them in the water and then brought them back up. My kids thought that was awesome! They want to do it again for sure!

“What a Blast”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

I had a friend of mine who had gone on the Screamer last year and told us not to miss it when we visited Oahy. Boy was she right - we had a ball. Plus the staff was courteous, fun and entertaining. I would recommend this ride for anyone who stays in Waikiki.

“Stay Away...they are dishonest...X-Treme Parasail”
Reviewed March 6, 2011

We have never gone parasailing before and wanted to try it because we saw a coupon in the Oahu activities book that read $25 for 300ft and $30 for $600 ft. We called and made a reservation for 2/27/11. They took our credit card info. When we arrived they charged us $84 dollars and told me that Teri, the person who took our reservation quoted us $42 per person. With the coupon in hand, they refused to accept it and also stated that if we cancelled, we would still be charged the $84. We were very upset with their blatant false advertisement. The boat arrived 15-20 minutes late and our ride was scheduled at 4. There were 6 couples on board and each rode 5 minutes at best. We returned to the dock at 5:10. The ride was not even an hour long as promised. In addition, they offered to take pictures for $15. We took this offer. They give you the film and you have to develop. We did this just yesterday and the pictures were horrible. Clearly, there is an issue with their camera. What a waste. Save your money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would NEVER recommend this company to anyone.
