This was on my bucket list. I decided to invite my 3 grand kids to join me. I just didn’t tell them we ALL were going to do 1,200 feet. Their mom & dad came as observers. We ALL had an amazing time!!!

We will definitely recommend booking with UFO Parasailing (Kona). Our children ages 9 and 6 really enjoyed parasailing. Wanted to do it twice that day coz it's super fun! The staff from check in down to the boat ride were super friendly and knowledgeable.
