Best experience ever!!! I've parasailed before with a different company in the island and I must say that Paradise Watersport's is the best!! The captain and Daniel were very friendly and funny. They made my little one feel comfortable by making her laugh with a joke or two. I highly recommend getting the picture package.. And also tip the crew as they are a big part of this experience.. Our family wants to do it again and we will def come back next year. Aloha!!!!

Had a blast! This was my first time and the crew made us all feel safe. A definite must when in Oahu. I highly recommend it!Tip - wear a one-piece bathing suit. You don't want to give an unintended show. This poor girl on our boat had her bottom piece go all the way down.

Solid trip, would do again The staff was great, helpful and attentive. Our group was pretty small and that was nice. All the extra things to do made it even more entertaining. One of the guides even dove down and 15 feet, maybe more, and grabbed an octopus and brought it up to where we could see it whilst snorkeling! Very amazing!
