Parasailing is the best way to get High on Maui. You can fly single, Tandem (2 people together), or triple 3 people flying together. We have 2 locations: The first is in downtown Lahaina in Lahaina Harbor at slip #15. The second is on the beach in Kaanapali just a 3 minute walk north of Whalers Village. Look for our Yellow umbrella's and yellow shuttle boat. Watch for our Flying Yellow Smiley Parasail's - if you see a "Yellow Smiley Parasil" - That's us!We have a fleet of Parasail boats and our 2 newest are 12 passengers to be able to carry those larger groups. The whole boat trip takes about an hour and should be the Highlight of your trip!

We decided to go parasailing on a whim. I called up West Maui based on Yelp reviews. They were able to fit us in that afternoon. We felt like we paid a fair price. The entire staff was really nice and very professional. We will definitely be back next year for another day of parasailing.

Fun thing to do when you are in Lahaina. Kids had a blast, I watched from the boat (which costs $35 but was worth it to be in the boat with my 10 year old). Crew on the boat were really friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable. Loved the happy face on the sail as most of... More

I highly recommend West Maui Parasail. There are a couple of parasail companies in Maui, but this is the one you should choose. The website is easy to navigate and booking a time slot was simple. The beach staff were welcoming, fun, polite and funny. The guys are very professional and safety conscious and made us feel totally at ease.... More

This is one of the attractions you will ant to enjoy when visiting Maui. The crew are very friendly and accommodating. Once you are up and flying, it is so quiet. The view is wonderful. My water is so clear, you can't help but look for marine life. Don't miss this.

I cannot say enough good things about WMP! My husband and I have never been Parasailing before and we chose to do the 8am 1200ft ride (I highly recommend this) everyone we worked with was awesome. Everyone had a great attitude and were super fun. Matt and Darren were the ones who took us out. They never once made us... More

Booked for a morning ride as the winds tend to pick up later in the day. Keep that in mind. I am not a water person but my three teens were so excited to try out parasailing. We paid the passenger rate and enjoyed the boat ride while the kids explored the skies over Lahaina. The check-in at the yellow... More

My wife and I went on the 1200 foot tandem ride and we loved it. We felt safe and were amazed at how quiet and tranquil it was when we were up in the air. The guides were great and gave everyone a toe dip in the ocean at the end of their ride. I would recommend it to anyone.

We had a great time parasailing! The crew was great and we felt very safe. I was disappointed in the pictures taken by the crew member. I don't know if the zoom wasn't working correctly but you can't even tell who we are. I thought for sure he would take a picture when we were "dipped" into the water but... More

Dudes, I'm probably the most terrified of heights out of the people I know. I guess it's not so much the height, but how much air is between me and the ground. It's a lot to fall through if something were to go wrong. I wasn't sure about the mechanics or the chute or the carabiners holding you in. That... More
