Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

This was our first experience with parasailing (at age 64) and it was great. We booked it though the concierge at the Ka'anapali Beach Club. The staff at West Maui Parasail was quite professional and made everything very easy. We never even got wet. The liftoff was smooth and the view was fantastic. We felt safe, even though we opted...

I was so excited to try parasail last trip to Maui. My children (ages 8 & 11) however were a little nervous. All the way up til the point they were getting strapped in. My son went with my husband and my daughter with me. Once they lifted off it was pure joy and a grin from ear to ear!... More

I enjoyed the parasailing, but it was way to short for the price. I was told by the sales person that the 800 ft hight was 12 min.and the 1,200 ft hight was 16 min. I was,also told I would be out on the speedboat for an hour. When I got out there, the crew informed me that I would... More

This was the first time parasailing for my mom and I. It was AWESOME. Definitely choose West Maui Parasail if you're thinking about going parasailing. Like many people have said in the comments it is not scary at all. I thought I'd be freaked out but it was so smooth up there. You don't get that feeling in your stomach... More

There are two locations for this business and we went to the one in Lahaina. So for those folks out there, this is for you: This is the best place to do any parasailing. We went on our first trip. Just for our two kids who did a tandem 800 feet with a dip in the ocean. No issues with... More

My best friend and I had decided long before we got to Maui that we wanted to go parasailing. Never had we gone before, but it was definitely something we had missed out on the previous year when we had visited Maui. Were we ever glad that we made the time to do it this year! They were about to... More

This was our first time parasailing with our 10 year old. It was so much fun and they are great with first timers and kids. Would highly recommend.

The day was very overcast so the views were not what we hoped for, but the crew were very friendly and helped to make this a relaxing and really enjoyable trip. The four in our group had never been parasailing before but wouldn't hesitate to go again. We felt safe and were given adequate instruction and information to help calm... More
