What You Can Expect

Maui Parasailing Experience

View While Parasailing

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.

UFO Parasailing did a good job on a windy day. We had a great time and we will remember the experience forever. We felt safe and very confident during our flight and boat ride.

Super fun experience! Dennis and Cody were awesome. Parasailing was a blast and the views were amazing. I felt like I was floating. Dennis and Cody did everything they could do to make sure not only the parasailing was fun, but the entire experience from start to finish. It was an amazing experience and I felt safe and secure the entire time. Highly recommend!!

For two people who are both afraid of heights this was always going to be a challenge but the crew made us so comfortable and confident. From the moment we harnessed up to the moment we stepped back on the beach this was a great experience. Anyone who is upright and breathing has to do this at least once. We will be watching the video of this one for years to come. Give it a go you will not regret it.

UFO Parasailing is top notch. Made us very comfortable from the check in, the dingy ride to the boat, to Justin and Sam our two captains. We had a very calm ride from take off to lowering our feet close to the water and shooting us back airborne. We felt safe and in control the entire time. A must do while in Maui.

Top 10 things I have done on vacation. Loved it!!! I am even afraid of heights and it was made so easy and relaxing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2012

We loved this experience. It ended up that we had our own boat to take us up on our soar of the Maui coast. From check in with Andy to suiting up in the harness to the friendly boat ride back to shore we learned, laughed and had a great time. This is something that everyone needs to do at least once.
