Parasailing is the best way to get High on Maui. You can fly single, Tandem (2 people together), or triple 3 people flying together. We have 2 locations: The first is in downtown Lahaina in Lahaina Harbor at slip #15. The second is on the beach in Kaanapali just a 3 minute walk north of Whalers Village. Look for our Yellow umbrella's and yellow shuttle boat. Watch for our Flying Yellow Smiley Parasail's - if you see a "Yellow Smiley Parasil" - That's us!We have a fleet of Parasail boats and our 2 newest are 12 passengers to be able to carry those larger groups. The whole boat trip takes about an hour and should be the Highlight of your trip!

I went parasailing with West Maui Parasail back in June. I honestly don't like writing negative reviews, but the reason I couldn't give this company/experience any more than 3 stars is because I walked away feeling a bit - I don't know - disappointed I guess. Like something was lacking. Before I continue writing about my own personal experience, I... More

My daughter and I have both always wanted to parasail so it made perfect sense to do it in beautiful Maui! We did 1200ft parasail and it was just amazing! All staff were friendly and professional. Never felt unsafe which is a great thing when you are 1200ft up! Would highly recommend this experience and company :)

This is a must do! Took the family out on the boat and had a great time. The entire crew is great and explains everything. They will take pictures for you while you take off and when you land. You will not believe the views and how quiet it is once you are flying high. We went up on a... More

This was an excellent last minute activity we did before we left the island. I had a13 year old son and 12 year old daughter who was afraid. The guides completely made her feel safe and secure. Everything they did was professional and not once was i scared. I would highly recommend west maui parasail and would definitly come back!

This is expensive for about an hour boat ride with 8-10 minutes up in the sky but definitely worth a try. The staff was super friendly and put my son at ease. He is afraid of heights but did fine. He and I did 800ft while my daughter and husband did 1200ft parasailing. Afterwards my son asked to go again!... More

Snorkel Bob's recommended West Maui as they said reputable, safe, and knowledgeable on wind conditions. We booked two tandems and an observer. The crew took extra caution on finding favorable wind conditions before we departed and signed waivers. Two of us have a fear of heights and agreed that parasailing is fun, calm and when up in the air it... More

This was my first time parasailing so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it SUCH A COOL EXPERIENCE! We booked the 10am tour, riding tandem (2 people). They taxi you out to the parasailing boat and then each group takes turns parasailing! The craziest part about it for me was how quiet the ride is once you are up... More

My husband and I did the tandem ride. It was great. I was a clear day and the view was fantastic at 1200 feet. I have been wanting to go parasailing for several years and I am so glad we did it. The crew was great.
