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.

My girlfriend and I were looking for something AMAZING to do on our 6th trip to Maui. We wanted to go on a Catamarand Sail and the trip to Lanai on the Paragon came very highly recommended by locals and tourists alike. I must say of all the things I have ever done I would put this sail at the... More

We chose this company for many reasons. Smaller group, was 11 the day we sailed. Breakfast provided. Fresh fruit and pastries. Lunch provided salad, sandwiches, veggies, and snorkeling on Molokini. Lots of beverages available. Great sailing experience. Captain Fitz and Keegan were amazing and skilled sailors. They even let a young man steer for a few minutes. Great tour to... More

The water at Molokini is so clear you won't believe it. Not only is the snorkeling unparalleled, but sailing on the Paragon is a blast! You can tell these guys love sailing. We sailed both to and from Molokini. On the way back we sat on the trampoline in the front and had a great time. If you sit there... More

My daughter and I took this boat out of Lahania to Lanai and we had a fabulous time. Capt. Ray, Ozzy and Jeremiah were very accommodating. We saw flying fish and spinner dolphins on the way to the reef. Reef was very clear, very safe. The lunch was just enough and the beach snorkelling was good as well. Near the... More

My wife and I did the Molokini snorkel during our honeymoon. Fitz and Keegan did a great job guiding the trip. Early in the trip, we got to experience some fishing when they caught an Ono off back of the ship in the harbor. I got a little sea sick and they were helpful in providing relief. I lost my... More

We set out for a 5 hour tour on this fun sailing boat. Captain Greg is very laid back and informative. He wants people to enjoy themselves. Ron was on deck as well and he makes sure everyone is comfortable, has something to drink and there is there to make sure you are having a good time. Sailed as much... More

Our family of four went snorkeling for the first time. We researched many companies and read all of the reviews. We decided to go with Paragon after reading so many great reviews, and they didn't disappoint us. Rather than going with a large company and a huge crowd, we had the experience of a smaller group and personal instruction. It... More

Great trip to Molokini crater...plenty of time to snorkel, crew was very fun and attentive....captain took us on a long, awesome sail on the way back to harbor....two daughters, ages 13 and 12 loved it! Honestly, if you can't enjoy this, you can't enjoy anything! One more thing....the negative reviews are a laugh...most are complaints about food....Sweet Jesus, you're going... More

Aweful. These people lied to us about why our trip was canceled. Then tried to say they called us to cancel, which they didn't. Claimed it was "boat" problems but we could see the boat mooring out in the ocean. We drove all the way to the other side of the island just to have them bail in us. It... More

This is a must do excursion in Maui. I will be back. Snorkeling, picnicking, lounging at the private beach, and sailing were excellent. Best sailing trip anywhere.
