Overview

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!

Easy, organized, punctual, fun, safe, friendly. No complaints. I had parasailed one other time (in Florida). I liked the experience with West Maui better for two reasons: 1) we flew higher, and 2) tandems sit side by side, instead of one person in front of...More

My wife and daughters (9 and 11) thoroughly enjoyed the parasail with this team. They were polite, punctual, and very professional. I recommend the 1,200 feet version —- go as high as they will let you! Wonderful views of the water and the mountains.

We lucked out completely. Because there was no party booked after us, the crew gave us 25 minutes each up in the air. It was a big WOW. I think the usual is about 10 to 15 min - depending on your party size - we had 4... More

There aren't any lockers. Most folks brought just a few items in backpacks that go with you on the boat. Nothing got wet except for those of us who went parasailing.
