IT WAS PHENOMENAL!!!!! It was an impeccable experience!! Definitely worth overcoming the nerves. The boat drivers were nice and polite, the whole staff is friendly and kind. It was an experience I would do again! We parasailed and it was such a peaceful time being in the air. If you’re on the fence about doing it, this is your sign!!! Do it!!!!

Best ocean fun
Tiffanie_S, Sep 2023
The stuff was so nice and helpful. Parasailing by far is amazing our crew gave us the anniversary special. Getting dropped into the water is the best part. The crew made it so much more fun. The view are spectacular.

Flying over the ocean with my daughter (even though we both have a fear of heights) was beautiful & exhilarating! 10/10 would do again.

I'm so glad we chose this company to parasail with while on Oahu. This was a really great experience. Everything was well organized and the team was professional and knowledgeable. I was super nervous parasailing for the first time, but very happy we had our first experience here with these guys, it was awesome. Mahalo!!

I liked parasailing but too much up and out of the water. I got motion sickness…and couldn’t enjoy it.
Parasailing with H20 Sports is awesome!
Samantha_C, Jun 2023
This experience was outstanding! From the time we arrived, checking in, to taxiing out to the boat and parasailing was a smooth, friendly, kind, courteous, professional experience. The front desk crew were so helpful and kind. The gentleman who helped us onto the rib boat was patient and understanding. The guys on the speed boat were wonderful as well. I would so recommend H2O Sports for your next adventure when your in Hawaii!
Great time! Worth getting away from Waikiki
Kiana_H, Mar 2023
This company gave a great experience for our first time parasailing! We went on a beautiful day so the views were amazing. They take you on a boat shuttle out to the bay and then each group had about 10 minutes of actual time in the air. The staff was friendly and fun, transitioning groups was quick for max air time and we felt safe and comfortable. Better than a lot of companies in the Waikiki area and worth venturing out for a different view and personalized feel. If you’re nervous, don’t be! It’s much more relaxing than scary, but prepared to get wet!
Wow- they were amazing....

It was so much fun!!! I was really scared to get chopped up by the boat when coming back down lol, but the crew was knowledgeable and reassuring. They really knew what they were doing. So glad we did this. Thank you!!!!!
They’re heartless
DAndrez_D, Aug 2022
Didn’t get to experience the trip because they left early, I told them I was having trouble finding parking and they showed no sympathy, so I lost out on money and a trip
Great experience
Ana_D, Aug 2022
Venue is beautiful, activity is a lot of fun. Very professional and friendly staff, the experience doesn’t feel touristy (even if it is)
Parapuked and still loved it!
Robert_S, Aug 2022
Well the first 4 minutes were truly amazing. Then I got terrible motion sickness. I fed the fish. A lot. I was so embarrassed, but these guys kept telling me it was okay and that I had NO reason to be sorry. I'll never forget how caring they were for me. These guys are amazing. Mahalo! Shelli smart
A must.
Ottis_W, Aug 2022
