Overview
Get a bird’s-eye view of the Big Island on a 1-hour parasailing experience. This family-friendly adventure can accommodate one, two or three people on each flight. Gaze out at the beautiful Kona Coast as you soar 800 feet (243 meters) or 1,200 feet (365 meters) into the air. Then land smoothly and safely back on the boat before returning to shore.
What to Expect
Begin your Kona parasailing adventure by boarding your 12-passenger boat and heading out into the water. This family-friendly experience accommodates single, tandem or triple flights.

Please note that the amount of time you spend in the air will depend on which option you’ve chosen. For the 800-feet flight, single passengers fly eight minutes, while tandems and triples fly for 10 minutes. 

Strap into your harness and rise up into the air, enjoying unparalleled views of the Kona Coast. For your safety and comfort, take-off and landing take place on the boat instead of the beach or the water.

This was our second time to use UFO. Last experience was about 13 years ago. We knew we wanted to go with UFO again. UFO didn't disappoint. It was a fun adventure

Just a short boatride from the dock at Kona into the bay and you are hooked up and on your way up for a quiet relaxing easy and "chill" ride. The length of the ride was about 10 minutes in the air, which was just...More
