Paragliding was the highlight of my vacation - quite possibly one of the highlights of my life. I was nervous as I have panic attacks on fair sky rides, but Dexter explained that is due to not being secured, which makes sense as I love to zip line. After reading all of the reviews I decided to go for the... More

One of the best adventures we have ever embarked on. Dexter was my pilot and he was wonderful. He said give me 6 seconds of the fastest running you can and you will have an experience of a lifetime. And he was not wrong. Recommend this to everyone.

This was, by far, the best adventure my family has ever had on a vacation. Dexter and his team of pilots were great (very patient) and explained everything to us before we "suited" up. The entire experience was amazing. The scenery was breathtaking and the actual "ride" down was smooth and very comfortable. I would highly recommend Proflyght to any... More

My three boys, ages 18, 16 and 11 had an outstanding experience. The highlight of our trip. My 18 year old wants to become certified. Everyone from check-in all the way through the flight was great. Very nice and patient. Highest of recommendations.

Dexter is the best teacher! He walks you through each step of the takeoff and then....pure heaven. Beautiful scenery, comfortable smooth ride, soft landing. Worth every penny! Thanks Dexter!

We loved this adventure! The whole family did it and the instructors were amazing with our kids (12 and 10 years old). Highly recommend for anyone looking to view Maui from high up! Quick advice...use the restroom before you get there. :-)

As another reviewer wrote, I wish I could do this every day. Dexter and the rest of the pilots were helpful and calming, and the experience of gliding (slowly and peacefully!) through the sky was both exhilarating and serene (almost spiritual!) at the same time. I was very scared to go paragliding, but the experience was nothing but joy and... More

Dexter is professional and low key. He is concerned that your experience is both safe and exhilarating. I'm 64 and had the most amazing experience ever!

I wish I could do this every day. It was fun and exhilarating and very peaceful. Dexter was great. He explained exactly what would happen and made it feel really safe. If anything would make me move to Maui, this would be it. I love to fly! For me, paragliding is a dream come true.

My 2 teenagers and I were eager to have a paraglide on our trip to Maui. We booked in with Proflyght for their 3000ft descent and were blown away by the experience and the excellent organisation. Dexter runs a very professional outfit and his pilots Terry and Abai on the day were just great. The site they have is just... More
