Mainly fun, slightly Disappointed
Kory_R

The actual experience was great. Description says it is 6-8 min long per couple but we only got 5 min for most and one of our pairs just got under 5 min. Hard to realize the time when you’re on the boat though. We had two groups go out and the guys on the parasailing boat acted like they got a big tip from our group before us which was not the case, in fact they forgot to tip them. They were trying to play us into a big tip. When we all got together later we put the puzzle together about their ploy to get tips. It’s genius but not honest. We really did like the workers, drivers and all the staff. Just didn’t like how we put things together later with them trying to play us.

I loved it more than I thought I would! I have a lot of fears and height is one of them but I really enjoyed this one! The day we went the sky was clear and not windy so it was really great and not scary at all. We saw turtles and a school of dolphins from the sky. It was super cool! We were so lucky that they let us to go earlier than my appointment time. So they took us with a jetski and transferred us to the other boat to parasail. Usually one boat takes 6 people max and people have to wait for their turn. But that day I had no line in front of of me, so the whole thing was super fast. For people who are easily seasick, the waiting part could be less fun! For us that day, the whole experience only took 30 mins I think, including check-in, boat ride to and back, and parasailing. Tips: bring your own gopro, hold it in the middle if doing tandem. Otherwise, they will charge you arms and legs for the pictures + video. I think it was $80 or something crazy like that. I wish they sell it for a lot less so people would actually buy it! However, if you plan to buy it anyway, don't forget to look up to the camera so it records a good footage of you! Also before they will take a picture of you from the boat before they pull you back to the boat. Don't forget to look down and smile. I didn't know and wasn't ready so my picture was bad lol..

Rigid Tour Operator
Jemly
, May 2022
I accidentally made a booking for this trip on May 16th at 6:00 pm EST for a tour on May 16th 1:30 pm Hawaii time through viator . Realized the mistake within half an hour that the booking I made was wrong but the H2O tour operator does not give me a refund and only gives me an option to reschedule to a later time . My trip is not until 2 weeks later and in this Covid time it could get changed for any unforeseen circumstances . I am deeply upset that the tour operator has trapped me on this while every activity that you try to book in Hawaii gives you an option to cancel upto 24 hours before . Viator customer care told they cannot do anything about it as the payment has been processed although most websites does not even give you an option for same day or 30 mins before booking like was allowed on this website which caused the issue .

Perhaps the best thing is to do the activity and then submit a review.

First time parasailing and we had a blast. Everything we thought it would be and so much more. Friendly staff from start to finish. Enjoyed all of the team members especially Jordan and Shawn. Would recommend even if a non-swimmer. Easy instructions and all you have to do is just have fun. Will do it again.

Not worth the money
Katherine_H
, Mar 2022
The activity is $100 but you’re only in the air for like 6-8 minutes. Besides, on their website they side the activity takes 1 hour, but it actually took 2 hours, most of the time spent waiting on a large boat. I arranged another appointment after that and was barely on time for it.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Parasailing on Maunalua Bay is one of our most popular activities. We have been safely operating for over 30 years. Ocean conditions can cause us to run behind, sometimes a guest will require a little extra time transferring or getting ready to fly. Safety is our number one priority.
