Not great. We arrived to be told they were charging us another $50 to have my husband and son on the boat watching us - we felt that was a rip off. We had to share the small boat with another couple (during Covid!!) and watch them as well. We were only in the air for our ride for 6mins ! Also be aware you have to do a rather tricky small boat to boat transfer in the middle of the choppy ocean. When on the boat was strong promotion to give a $20 tip to the guys driving the boat so we did. In short- I've had way better - I can't recommend - Bottom line very expensive when you consider the very short ride time and add the additional $70 you didn't expect to pay.

Aloha: We do charge for observers to be on a boat limited to 6 people. Instead of an observer paying a parasail rate we came up with a reasonable observer rate. I hope you have fond memories of your Hawaiian visit

I had a fantastic time on this trip. The operators were so super nice and friendly and fun. The experience itself was very fun, you could argue that it's a little short at I think about 6 to 8 minutes of airtime but its definitely something I would do again and with this service. The only reason I don't rate it as a 5 star are doe two reasons: 1st I scheduled the start time for 130 or at least that was the option they gave. We did not leave until almost 230 which caused me multiple problems due to me making travel arrangements around that appointment. The 2nd was I think the photos are very pricey. They take great digital photos and videos but the price seems pretty steep for the pictures and video they are about $80 which to me is a lot. But again I do want to say the experience to me was very fun the staff was great and very nice and I would definitely come back and use the company again!

First Time Parasailing Experience

As we drove out to the launching boat, we noticed how blue the water was. The scenery was beautiful. The day was windy making it a bit more exciting. As we took off, being the first time parasailers, we felt like we were in a rollercoaster or something. But as soon as you are free, what a beautiful freedom of flying. The water, the island, the scene was an experience. The service was excellent.

The crew was great! The views were awesome! Would highly recommend! The only negative is that you need to take two boat rides before you start parasailing and two boat rides back to shore. The transfers take a lot of time for the 10-15 minutes of air time you receive. Overall, a fun experience.
