Choose your preferred height for your Maui parasailing trip, either 800 feet (244 meters) or 1,200 feet (366 meters). Board your boat at Ka’anapali Beach and enjoy views from water as well as the air.

This experience is family-friendly and you can go up in groups of one, two or three. Please note that air time will depend on the option you select. For the 800-feet option, single passengers fly eight minutes, and tandems and triples fly for 10 minutes. For 1200-feet, singles fly 10 minutes, and tandems and triples for 12 minutes.

Take-off and landing occur on the boat, rather than on the beach or the water, for a safer experience for younger travelers. This dry landing will also ensure that you stay comfortable for the full duration of your trip.

great view

Everything was handled very well we had 2 people in our party that were a little concerned about going up, but crew put them at ease. The movies and pictures that the crew took were both very good
