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

Hats off to both Joel & Frank for making our parasail experience an unforgettable one. Not only did they provide good professional instruction, but they transformed our quiet group into a cheerful, talkative crowd, excited to experience the thrill of parasail and share their stories. Thank you Joel and Frank.

We hadn't planned on parasailing on our trip, but once we saw people doing it on our first day we knew we had to. It was actually very peaceful up there. A great thrill.

Our group of 4 absolutely loved this experience from Kaanapali Beach. We called a few days in advance to reserve the 8:00am Early Bird Discount (they also have a high noon discount). They currently offer 800 and 1200 foot flights. The 800 foot flight was relaxing with amazing views! We were very impressed with the friendly and professional crew (Mars... More

Such a fun experience! Highly recommend it. Even for those who fear heights like my husband, he had a blast on our honeymoon conquering his fear! the take off is slow and fun and being up there is magical and so relaxing!

This is our 3rd time to parasail. All three experiences have pretty much been the same so I can't say West Maui is better than another company, but I can say that everything about the parasail was a great experience. The crew were great and definitely knew what they were doing. They joked around making the boat ride a pleasure.... More

The check in staff are great, the crew for the boats are experienced and knowledgable, and they are great and putting nervous clients at ease.. not to mention, they are very amenable to adding a little extra splash when asked. While they offered photo they were also very agreeable to me using my iphone to capture take off and landings.... More

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

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
