Good but not Great
Misty_L, Mar 2023
Loved the parasail experience! Did not love being held on a platform in the ocean for an hour waiting for my turn. I could have been doing something else with my time.
Staff and boat operators...
Tracy_G, Dec 2022
Staff and boat operators were super friendly and helpful. There are a number of boat transfers to parasail and I think age and agility would definitely hinder ones ability. Be patient, everyone is on Hawaii time so timed reservations happen when they happen. Overall, great experience and would parasail with them again!
Soo much fun!!
Anastasia_S, Nov 2022
It was just our family on the boat. The air time seemed nice and long. Staff was super nice, professional and very attentive to all the safety details. Would do it again tomorrow if we weren’t leaving today.

The whole experience was a vibe! From the stellar customer service to the beauty of the view. I would definitely recommend this company.
The coast was definitely...
Camille_S, July 2022
The coast was definitely beautiful. However the parasailing was way too short and not as diverse the way it was 20 years ago. The company basically sends you up in the air, dips you in the water, and then has you hover above the boat for the 6 minutes allotted time before having you land back in the boat. It makes for beautiful photos but lacks the total adventure.

We have been parasailing on Mauanalua Bay for over 30 years. Safety is our priority and the ride time is perfect for most people. It is the adventure of the day!
This was magical!

This was the first time I’ve ever done Parasailing and it was absolutely magical. The air was so calm and you feel a sense of peace over looking Hawaii and all the natural beauty of the ocean. This is a must do attraction and I highly recommend this.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
We do operate in one of the most beautiful places on the planet! The views are outstanding. Please join us again. Mahalo!
Shemika_B, Feb 2022
Loved it! Made us feel at ease. So peaceful once at the top. They also dip you a little in the water.
This is our first...
SRIDHAR_V, Dec 2021
This is our first Parasailing trip and was awesome. Crew is really great and very helpful. I would recommend this place
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Mahalo! Parasailing is our number one activity.
Great adventure! Do it anyways!
Raymond_K, Dec 2021
Awesome experience! I was a little nervous, but the guys were pros. We drove to the location, checked in at the desk, waited for the water taxi, was transferred to another boat, waited our turn, then got on a Zodiac which transferred us to the parasailing boat. The whole start to finish time was about 3 hours and the parasailing was a good 6 minutes which was enough time to enjoy. We had blast!
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Just do it! and you did. Mahalo for making memories with us!
Not a fish but a bird…
Maria_A, Dec 2021
Love the parasailing. Didn’t get to ride alone. Sadly my video was included with a total stranger, I was not aware I was going to be riding with someone else. Over the taxis guys and the team who launched the parasailing were great. I would do it again.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
We love parasailing! We have been safely parasailing guests for over 33 years. Please come again!
Great experience!
Rodrigo_M, Oct 2021
Had a great time and the video and pictures they took were great! If you go as a group, you pay for all of your pictures and videos.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Mahalo for joining us on the water in beautiful Maunalua Bay.
Fun experience, we loved it!
Loan_N, Sept 2021
Check in was seamless! The guys helping us were nice and cool. The experience was super fun! My friends and I would love to do it again but the parasailing + jet ski combo!
A Thrilling Experience with a Great View
Marian_L, Sept 2021
Our guides were very accommodating and guided the boat and parasail to give us a fun experience balanced between a thrilling course through the air and sea and a relaxing sail at the peak to enjoy the view. Thanks for a great memory!
So much fun
maria_a, Sept 2021
Everyone’s so friendly. First time parasailing, they made the experience as easy and fun as possible
Response from Host, Sept 2021
Aloha: We have the best staff on the planet! Mahalo for sharing vacation time with us!
Relaxing and super fun!
Toni_K, Sept 2021
Amazing experience, absolutely no regrets! My husband was afraid to do it and regretted not going with!
Response from Host, Sept 2021
We are here to amaze. Glad you were able to spend time with us.
Crystal_B, Aug 2021
Being lifted into the air and seeing the water below me and the wind and air around me. The tour guides were the best.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
We do have the best staff on the planet. Thanks for flying with us.
Woo-hoo great experience
Patricia_H, Aug 2021
I didn't know what to expect riding the parasail. But, it felt good and so relaxing. I would definitely do it again.
KarymeG, July 2021
A great experience! Everyone was nice and explained everything along the way, very helpful. Would definitely go again another day!
Great Experience
Jonnetta_T, July 2021
Friendly staff, first time so they took time to explain what to expect and reassured me. Experience was great! I will do it again
Soaring, dolpins, and beautiful waters.
Andrea_M, July 2021
The boat ride to transfer to the small boat that takes you parasailing was a treat in itself. The water in the bay was so clear and there were some pretty great views of O'hau from out in the bay. We go t to see of a pod of dolphins too! The parasailing itself was amazing! I was in a group of three. Since the parasailing has a double harness for two, one of us was able to go twice, for no extra charge. Oh my gosh, that was sooooo much fun. We felt safe and went really high. You feel like you are out there for a long time. We even got to get dunked in the water upon request. The video and pictures they sell after isn't individual- it is of the whole group. They shot really great shots and pictures, professional! Last but not least you get to see all of the H20 sports while your waiting to get on your boats, so if you want to add on if the activities are not booked you can!
