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 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

We have been flying with West Maui Parasail for over ten years. We started out flying out of the Lahaina harbor, but now that they have been flying off of Kaanapali for the past several years, that is what we do since we always stay there. Very convenient. They used to be down in front of the Hyatt, but have... More

Such a fun way to add something special to the day! We took the trip out of Kaanapali - Dragon and JD were experienced, fun and made sure we had a great time; you can tell they love what they're doing! We did 2 person and 3 person parasailing, the water was perfect so the ride was smooth and enjoyable.... More

They are out of Ka'anapali or Lahaina. Ka'anapali is a pain to find parking unless you are at one of the resorts close to the embarking location. Lahaina has free three hour parking that seems to always have spaces in the morning. We have done it five times and it has always been smooth and perfectly safe. They offer flights... More

At least that's what there shirts say. A little afraid of Heights but the crew made me feel at ease. My mother in law whom is seventy and my 6 yr old daughter had a great time. Definitely a family affair.

This was our first time parasailing so we didn't know what to expect. The whole experience was a blast. There were four other couples on the trip so while each group was enjoying their time parasailing, we got to relax on the boat and take in the views. We spent a good 9 minutes up in the air and got... More

This was a great time. We thought it would be scary. The take off was smooth, the flight was smooth, and the dip in the ocean was great. Go early to beat the trades. But just go.
