What an incredible experience!!! This was my first time paragliding, and it did not disappoint! I did the 3000 ft flight, which was short (approx. 12 minutes or so) although worth the cost. Got a great video and lots of pictures. The staff were great, very experienced instructors who have paraglided all over the world, and Dexter was very informative.... More

I did preflight many years ago and it was one of my best lifetime experiences. So wonderful to soar so high and silent over beautiful upcountry Maui. They are very professional and I felt very safe the whole time on my tandem flight. I highly recommend this!

This was awesome! I only wish I could do it again before going home. Dexter worked with me to re-schedule when the wind didn't cooperate. Worth the money!

My wife and son (9 years old) were a little apprehensive about paragliding, but in the end, we were all absolutely thrilled. It was an experience my son will never forget and the first thing he asked was if we could go again. The views from the lift off area and throughout the flight are some of the most spectacular...

First time doing the paragliding and definitely worth it! I went with 1k but would recommend 3k if you're not tight on budget. It was so much fun approaching the ocean by flying and enjoy the wind/view in the air. The staff are super nice and helpful. Tips 1. Take your camera or mobile phone with you in the sky... More

First time trying paragliding, the whole process was perfect. They worked with me to fly on the best weather day available, were very thorough with directions, safety instruction, and preparation. The flight was amazing and fun of course. Not an adrenaline thrill like many expect, but actually very quiet and peaceful, with amazing views.

Great experience, so glad we did it. We felt safe and all instructors have years of experience. They answered all of our questions regarding safety and information about the flight. One of the coolest experiences my fiancé and I have had, and we can't wait to go again next year!

This was one of the most exciting things I have done in ages. The adrenaline rush waiting to run off the side of a hill, followed by instant stillness and serenity. We were floating through clouds and saw rainbows in the clouds. The view was breathtaking and I felt so calm and protected with my pilot Paul. I would definitely... More
