With the addition of a second vessel, Paragon II, to the sister vessel Paragon in 1996, Tamara and Eric were able to expand operations to four tours running out of Ma'alaea and Lahaina harbor. Each tour is based upon the Barto's love of the ocean and sailing. Even the company name, Paragon Sailing Charters, reflects their passion in creating the most personal, exclusive tours for the visitors of Maui. To this day, their passion for customer service is reflected in the quality of their tours and the commitment of their crew to provide each passenger with a unique and memorable experience « less

This was my first time to Maui and my wife really enjoys snorkeling so this was by far the highlight of the trip. Captains Ray and Lacy were squared away, informative without sounding superior. We had booked the trip to go to Lana'i for snorkeling and beach excursion. There was enough wind to be able to sail most of the... More

We booked the trip to Lanai for the day and thought it would be great fun to sail over. I will start by saying the boat was great, winds were up and we enjoyed the sail, return got very rough, but they handled it well and we actually found it a lot of fun. We enjoyed an excellent picnic lunch,... More

We had so much fun, the crew was great and very knowledgeable, not to mention entertaining. We had never been snorkeling before so we got a one on one rundown of the how-to's. There was breakfast, lunch and drinks all included. Even the trip to Molokini was fun, there were whales everywhere, it was almost like two trips in one.... More

The food was simple and good, the crew were friendly and personable ( they all made a point to walk around and talk to everyone). they clearly enjoyed sailing and that sort of enthusiasm is... More

We had a GREAT trip on Paragon. We wanted to go out on a boat that really sailed vs just motoring around and this trip was great. The sailing was fabulous, the food and drink plentiful and snorkeling in Molokini was awesome! The crew were friendly and knowledgeable - and stopped so we could watch some great whale action on...

We have been on the Paragon many many times and each visit to Maui is not complete without a trip on the Paragon. It is a great day on the water. The crew is fabulous! We love Lacy and our only regret this time was that we didn't get to see Ryan. Treat yourself to a wonderful day on the... More

Sailed with Paragon today on their Molokini Snorkel Sail trip. We had a blast! We've taken various boat trips with 6 other companies on Maui and this was our favorite so far! Crew is very friendly, helpful and attentive. Captain Greg truly loves to sail. The other cats we've rode with only put up the sail for a very brief... More

We went out with captain Ryan and first mate Ozzie earlier this week. Our 12 and 14 year old boys loved it and had a blast. Whales under the boat. Wow! Smaller crowd made it fantastic.
