Big Island Parasailing Experience

Parasailing over the Big Island

If you’re looking for a fun experience on the Big Island, this unforgettable parasailing adventure is for you! Perfect for families, this parasailing tour takes you soaring over the beautiful Kona Coast.

You’ll board a 12-passenger boat with up to eight other people, giving you more time in the air. Strap safely into your harness and rise up into the air on an exciting single, tandem or triple flight.

Admire spectacular views as you soar over the Pacific Ocean along the Kona Coast at your chosen height of 800 feet (243 meters) or 1,200 feet (365 meters). 

Take-off and landing are ‘dry’ and take place on the boat, not on the water or beach, making this a safe, comfortable experience.

Please note: While time on the boat is equal to one hour, time in the air will vary depending on option chosen. For the 800ft flight, single passengers fly 8 minutes, while tandems and triples fly for 10 minutes. For the 1200ft flight, singles fly 10 minutes and tandems and triples fly for 12 minutes.

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!

Tour guides were personable and went the extra mile to make sure that everyone had a great time. The ride was .... INCREDIBLE!!! :)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2013

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".
