Kona Parasailing



Early Bird 8:00am ONLY
Hourly from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Duration: 1 hour


Parasailing is easy, fun and an experience few will ever forget!

Slowly you’ll rise into the air, above and behind the boat. The silence is breathtaking. The view, awe inspiring!

Parasailors are on the boat for approximately one hour. All parasail boats are USCG certified to carry 12 passengers; however, trips are limited to 8 passengers for more time in the air and less time on the water unless larger groups request to be together. Participants are winched on and off the boat hydraulically for safe, dry takeoffs and landings.

Take-off and landings are dry, however you may get dipped and get your feet wet by your request only. Dipping is at the sole discretion of captain for safety based on wind and sea conditions. The 1200' flight does include an optional simulated free fall where the boat speed is decreased so the participant can experience a parachute descent similar to jumping from a plane but stops short of contact with the water.
