Parasail in paradise with UFO PARASAILING   its a fun, easy activity that almost everyone can enjoy. Absolutely no experience is necessary and there is nothing to learn you just sit back and enjoy the ride. You begin your flight seated on the back deck of the boat your harness is attached to the parasail, and as the boat begins to accelerate, you feel the vessel sliding out from underneath of you and WHOOOSH off you go! Your actual air time depends on the length of the line and whether you are going single or tandem / triple. 800' single fliers are in the air about 8 minutes, 800' tandem/triples and 1200' singels are in the air for about 10 minutes, and 1200' tandems/triples are in the air for about 12 minutes. At the end of the ride the crew reels you in like a fish, and you land like a feather standing up on the back deck of the boat. The total length of time you are out on the boat is about an hour or a little less.

UFO PARASAILING offers daily "abductions" from the pier downtown in Kailua-Kona all year round. While Maui parasailing shuts down from December 15th to May 15th, UFO Kona is not closed during whale season. The observer rate for anyone going out on the boat but not flying is $35.00.


Minimum age to parasail is 3. Minimum age as an observer is 3.

No pregnant women and no one with a history of neck or back injuries may board the boat. No one who has previous back or neck surgery, no matter how long ago, is permitted on the boat.



Parasailing is available for cruise ship passengers in Kona, and the check-in is just across the street from the cruise ship dock! Check-in is 45 minutes prior to your flight time, and allow ample time to get to shore when making your reservation. Kona is a tendering situation and it may take an hour or so after your scheduled arrival for you to make it to shore. 


Activity Tips

What an amazing sensation! Imagine yourself sitting on the back deck of a boat. You are wearing a harness ... behind you a parasail is already inflated. The staff clips you onto the line, and you hear the boat's engines power up. You feel the boat sliding out from underneath you ... and moments later the boat has disappeared and you are hovering over the water just a few feet from the surface. Out goes the line ... and away you go ... a giant kite against the horizon!

Parasailing has evolved into a highly safe art form. The take-off and landing both happen on the boat. When your ride concludes, they reel you in like a fish. You land gently on the back deck of the boat where your adventure began. 

Certain weight limits apply. Two people may fly in tandem as long as their combined weights do not exceed 450 lbs. In order to fly single, you have to weigh at least 130 lbs. ... these weights are guidelines and can change subject to wind conditions.

Each boat holds 6 people, so larger groups will have to split between two or three boats.

I acknowledge that I have read the booking procedures below and wish to submit this reservation for processing.

Upon submitting your activity reservation for processing, one copy is sent to your e-mail address so that you have a record of your order. We will make reservations for you and send an e-mail confirming all of the details. These confirmations are often sent a few minutes after your reservation, but some activities take longer to confirm than others. You will receive an e-mail confirmation by the end of the next business day at the latest. There are no tickets that you need to pick up prior to your event. Your e-mail confirmation will have all the details you need to check in and enjoy your selected activity. This saves you precious time when you arrive in Hawaii. 

A credit card is required to guarantee payment for your reservations, but in most cases WE DO NOT charge your credit card when your order is placed. Your credit card is typically charged five days before you leave for Hawaii, and a voucher is faxed to the vendor. Some activities are charged at the time of check-in and your e-mail confirmation will inform you if this is the case. If you cancel your activity after your credit card has been charged you will receive a refund less 10% to cover our credit card processing costs.

We do have one vendor that requires payment at the time that your reservation is made. These activities are clearly marked on our website with the words, "Payment required at the time of reservation."

After making reservations, you may reschedule or cancel your activity up until 48 hours prior to its start (a few activities have 72 hour cancellation policies ... see your confirmation e-mail for details). Within 48 hours of the start of your activity all reservations are final and non-refundable (unless the event is cancelled by the vendor due to weather or other factors). Due to our incredible climate here, weather cancellations are rare.  No-shows and cancellations without adequate notice are charged in full on the credit card used to secure the reservation and are non-refundable.



Most rates quoted on this website do not include the Hawaiian state sales tax which adds 4.1667%, 

or the state harbor fee of 3% on boat excursions. Adventureinhawaii.com is a FREE reservations service;

 we have no hidden service charges or fees that we charge for servicing your reservation
