Itinerary
Begin your Kona parasailing adventure by boarding your 12-passenger boat and heading out into the water. This family-friendly experience accommodates single, tandem or triple flights.

Please note that the amount of time you spend in the air will depend on which option you’ve chosen. For the 800-feet flight, single passengers fly eight minutes, while tandems and triples fly for 10 minutes. 

Strap into your harness and rise up into the air, enjoying unparalleled views of the Kona Coast. For your safety and comfort, take-off and landing take place on the boat instead of the beach or the water.
