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!

Another Excellent Time

We had another great time with west maui parasail. Such a great group of people and very enjoyable parasail. The views from 1200 ft is amazing.

We were a family of 4....2 adults and 2 children. We had missed our appointment and they were very accommodating, accepting us earlier than the next boat out. They were super friendly. I am normally scared of heights but the harnesses and attention to detail made it more relaxing. I didn't realize HOW HIGH we would be going because I... More

This company really took good care of my family. I have a special needs adult child, and they were soooo sweet with her! She even went up and sailed! She loved it. They take pictures for you and you get them at the end of your ride. We loved it so much we even bought several T-shirts that were available... More

Scared at first - but the guys joked around and made it so much fun. We did a tandem sail - once we were up it was gorgeous and so quiet. Saw whales and the scenery was just great! Well worth the money. Definitely must get the photos. They were great and documented the event. Thanks to the crew from... More

two adults and two kids, we went up in pairs but I believe you can also do single or triple. It was really nice to get out on a boat and if the boat is full you get to be on the boat for a nice 45 minute ride which is fun. Not choppy as they try to go smooth... More

I did this just spur-of-the-moment. I had met someone on a different activity who had parasailed. She recommended this company highly. She said that she had some trepidation about parasailing but she did it for her family as a group venture. I had had some doubt but she told me that she felt safe and she was happy she did... More

We loved it, we felt safe and looked after. The view was amazing and perfect weather. We did the 1200' line. They take pics of you from the boat and you can then pay for the memory card, you dont see the pics first, the card is $30. We did it and the photos are great, there are 80 shots... More

This was the one excursion my son didn't want to miss out on and boy, was it great! Process to book was easy and quick (we booked online). Harbour location was close to parking lot, everything was organized and professional. Each ride itself was about 10 minutes long and our 3 kids got to go up together. The boat operator... More

We kicked off our trip with a parasail with WestMaui Parasail. They were super easy to find front and center at Lahaina harbor. We had accidentally booked two tandems.. when we only needed one and they were quick to realize our mistake and refund the trip we did not need. For that.. I am very grateful, however, I would have... More

Booked this through our Concierge- it was quick, easy, and to me, worth the short trip. You're only up there for about 10-12 minutes, but honestly, it gets a little uncomfortable up there after awhile anyways. You pay for the experience really, as the total trip out on the boat took no more than 45 minutes. If you're on a... More
