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

We sailed to Lanai on a snorkel trip out of Lahaina. Breakfast and lunch were provided as well,as beverages. The staff were very knowledgable and helpful. Unfortunately, I slipped and sprained my ankle. However, the staff had my ankle iced, elevated and meds given within 3 min. I could not have had better care in the E.R. I would definitely... More

This is our fifth Paragon trip. 4 of these are the afternoon Coral Gardens trip. They always are a day well spent. Why? These guys love to sail and the afternoon winds make for great speed. The trampoline is a blast. Snorkeling is "ok" for an afternoon trip. Only about $60 pp. We have never had more than 12 people... More

We sailed on Paragon to Molokini for snorkeling. Captain Eric and his crew Ron and Ari were fantastic! Each of them made an effort to visit with each passenger, and I think all guests felt that they were welcome because of the attitude of the crew. The sail to Molokini was beautiful and very relaxing. We did a morning trip,... More

Fitz and Keegan were relaxed, professional and knowledgable on our 5-hour trip out to Molokini Crater. This tour provided breakfast and lunch as well as snorkeling gear in their price and the sailing portion was a great time! Would recommend this to anyone.

The water was warm this year, the wind filled the sails and the shipmates were just as hospitable as ever. Paragon Sails has never disappoint for the last 7 years and me and my traveling party will not hesitate to sail with... More

All I have to say is if you are looking for an awesome Molokini experience, Paragon Sailing Charters is the way to go! Very helpful, friendly staff and because the charter is 38 guest max, it makes your trip very intimate & worth it. The crew gets to interact with everyone and the boat is not crowded as other boats... More

We had a great trip out to Molokini for some awesome snorkeling. Great boat. The provided breakfast and lunch were light but refreshing. The crew was great. Captain Fitz, Ozzie and Arie all went out of their way to be helpful and fun. I think each one of them went around and visited with everyone on the boat to make... More

Like others have commented, Fitz and Keegan do a great job of managing the boat and running a great tour to Molokini. The time at Molokini was pretty limited - about an hour - but it is a spectacular place. It would be great to have twice that given that Paragon only does Molokini on the morning tour. The best...
