This was awesome! Dexter and his team were great and it was very simple to do this but you do have to run for a short distance. For the driving directions, I followed someone else's tip and put in the lavender farm's address in the GPS and then you just drive a little further until you see the sign. I... More

I have never done this before, but now I'm hooked! Flying with Proflyght is so peaceful, with such amazing views! It's not scary at all, no sense of falling. Dexter and his crew are so professional and safe, and absolutely great with kids! We did the 1000 ft decent earlier in our vacation, then immediately booked the 3000 ft decent... More

Thanks to everyone working there, especially Adai. Even though I failed to get in the air twice, Adai worked with me and never once sounded annoyed or bothered. The guy was forced to tumble down the hill twice, and didn't for a second sound anything but happy. All I heard were words of encouragement. Make sure to run, and enjoy... More

Paragliding was everything we dreamed and more. My wife and I went and she has a fear of heights. This did not bother her because you take off from the ground and kind of ease into it. It is exhilarating while being relaxing and for adventure junkies like myself just let the guide know you want extra G force:). I... More

Can't say enough about this!! Dexter and his crew were phenomenal and the thrill of the flight is second to none. ANYBODY can do this if you can jog 10 yards. There is nothing to fear and my only regret is that we did not do the 3,000 foot flight. You MUST do this if you are in Maui! You... More

I saw this 19 years ago driving up to hakeakala. I have wanted to do it since. My husband and teenage daughter came with me and we all loved it. The crew is up front, professional and yet laid back. I felt completely safe. It was amazingly beautiful and surreal. It was a dream come true.

If you are up for an adrenaline rush this falls somewhere between skydiving and parasailing on the "adrenaline" level. It is actually quite a peaceful ride and you can see both side of the island which is pretty surreal. It is a bit difficult to find but it is right next to the lavender farm.

I had an awesome time! This was my first flight and well worth the money. Dexter was my instructor and tandem flight guide. He was very knowledgeable and explained things in simple terms so I could understand the process and feel very comfortable. I did the 3,000' ascent and it was unbelievable! Very quiet up in the air! Was able... More

This was such an amazing adventure. I surprised my husband with this trip on our second honeymoon. I wasn't quite ready to jump out of a plane, but running off the side of a mountain was pretty dang fun! Dexter, Paul, and Pete were the best! They do a lot of talking about what you need to do . .... More
