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! « less

My family (3 kids, 15, 13, & 9) had a blast with West Maui Parasail. Only my wife had parasailed before and that was many years ago. We did two tandem rides at 800'. Paying the extra $10/pp for 1200' is questionable value for money. I think the experience would be (for the most part) the same. Especially given you're... More

$225 for 3 people parasailing together for about 12 minutes. My wife and kids went and paid an extra $30 for photos. They photos were terrible. Some blurry and their faces were in shadows. They had fun however. Just another typical overprices Hawaiian activity.

I read the reviews first and was glad we picked West Maui Parasail (the company with the yellow smiley face parachutes). We did the 1200 ft tandem parasail and the view was pretty great. The crew was friendly and fun and it wasn't scary. We had such a great time that I sent my parents parasailing with West Maui Parasail... More

Great crew and shore staff. Very engaged with the customers throughout the ride and felt very safe with their preparations before take off! One of my bucket list items completed with a great company. Try it!

I took my 9 yr old son for his first time and the crew was amazing! They were friendly and professional. My son had a great time and it was one of the highlights of the vacation for him.

We just did this last week, everyone on the crew was super nice and made the experience awesome. We definitely want to do it again.

This was our second time with these guys, and our parents went with us for their first time! Mind you, my mother is on the skittish side when it comes to anything water related, and she ended up having a very good time. We did the tandem ride and took us up on the 1200 foot line. It is so... More

My husband and 11 year old daughter enjoyed their first tandem parasail -- the crew was attentive, professed and courteous. No complaints with boat, crew or sail. The only negative for me is it's a bit of a cattle-car experience -- one group coming in as the next goes out hour after hour. The other negative for the ka'anapali location... More

Thanks to Dragon and Joel we had an awesome experience. Bit terrified to start with at the concept of parasailing, but these guys made it all seem so natural and easy. Go see the land crew under the yellow umbrella out the front of Ka'anapali Beach resort.

West Maui Parasail had a stop right on Ka'anapali beach so it was convient to find them under the yellow umbrella. My mom and I were on boat 2 and the guys were awesome. Everyone was helpful and competent. The actual experience in the air was amazing! So peaceful and beautiful. I would do it again in a heartbeat. There... More
