Had a blast parasailing! The check-in process was a breeze, the crew was great and super friendly. I hate heights, but my husband and I did this together, the crew and other passengers on the boat really made it easy to be comfortable. I would definitely use this company again if we ever go parasailing on the Big Island again.

Perfect weather to parasail. Booked the earliest sail and got our own boat.They open up a check in table right on the pier where the tenders from our cruise dropped us off. Awesome staff and special thanks to Captain Casey and Ship Mate Dani! You Two Rock! The experience was seamless from start to finish!

AWESOME! Crew was great. I'm usually afraid of heights but felt completely safe. We actually spotted whales and a pod of about 30 dolphins while up there. Check one off our bucket list...though I may put it on again just so we can do it again!

This was amazing. The guides were very helpful and upbeat during the entire trip. If you want the best time, go the highest level up. I was able to see a small pod of whales having fun. It was scary and fun at the same time.

I have wanted to parasail for around 40 years, but have never had the guts! So I thought, well, if I don't do it now, I never will, so we went up, and it was brilliant! We had paid for 800 feet, but the lads sent us up 1200 feet, and charged us $20 extra when we got down! I got the impression this was quite normal! We sat on a metal bar, well strapped in, and took off-I was terrified, but it was actually very easy, and the views were amazing. We were up for about 12 minutes, you wouldn't want any longer because the bar gets a bit uncomfortable, and we landed easily on the boat (just in case you thought we landed in the sea!). Definitely a "must do".
