We did a triple, 1200 foot and it was awesome. The youngest left fingerprints in the webbing that they must still be trying to get out. I never noticed any wind while up and no trouble with my sunglasses. The crew was great. This is something I would do again.

Wonderful time with UFO. Very kind and efficient crew put our children right at ease (ages 11+12) and made for a memorable adventure. Worth the money for sure.

Parasailing at its best. UFO has the highest altitude parasailing adventure due to less restrictive FAA guidelines near Kona. They make it very easy for anyone to parasail and the crew was great. The boat, winch and sail do all the work so you can enjoy all the peace and quiet up high. It is very calm and peaceful at... More

Parasailing is super fun and super easy. Sit to fly and stand to land. Boom! You are trained. Taking off is a huge rush followed by serenity as you gaze at the beauty around you. You might even see a whale (we didn't, but the folks just before us did). Landing is very cool, you get to touch the water... More

My wife and I took a cruise to Hawaii and on our stop over in Kona we decided to book a trip to go parasailing. This company is top notch! The parasailing, the views, and the boat ride were awesome! Brian, one of the crew, was fantastic! He entertained us through the whole trip. Lots of jokes and "gotcha" moments... More

if you like to parasail this is a good one. The staff are very nice and views peaceful. The view is not like sailing over Waikiki beach or other sites but is nice. We did a three-seater with our 4 year old in the middle. Totally enjoyable. Don't go out on a windy day if you are prone to sea-sickness.

The entire adventure was amazing from signing up, sign waivers, watching safety videos from our phone in our hotel room to the actual parasailing. Watching safety videos via a link on our phone allowed us to show up for parasailing without have to get there too early or having to wait for others to see the video. On the morning... More

Andrew and John do an amazing job! Grab a deal on Viator - but it's worth full price too! Don't miss this.
