What To Expect

Begin your tour with direct pickup from your Waikiki accommodations. At the Ala Wai Boat Harbor you’ll check in and have the chance to pre-order photos of your flight at your own expense.

Board your 12-seater boat and run through safety instructions from the crew. You’ll also be provided with tips for a smooth take-off from the boat.

Then, you’re off! Your boat will cruise along the water and the members of your group will take turns parasailing, either for 8 minutes with an 800-foot (244-meter) line, or for 10 minutes on a 1,200-foot (366-meter) line. Prepare to be paired with one or two others when you fly, reaching a maximum altitude of 500 feet (152 meters). Take in the stunning, bird's-eye views of Oahu and see the island from an entirely new and breathtaking perspective.

When you return to the boat, sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery and marine life around you. You can ask the captain for a quick dip in the water or can stay dry for the duration of the tour. Dolphin and sea turtle spottings are common while you’re traveling across the water, as well as flying fish. During December to May, you may also see whales during their migration.

After returning to the dock, you’ll have a chance to preview and purchase your photos before being transported back to your hotel by your driver.

First time

Ride was great...staff was excellent. Ride could be a little longer.😀make sure to book your trip with Hawaii Parasail.
Best Parasail on island
Asiakenyaette_M, May 2022
Always a great time with this company. I like Viator because they give so many options.. Hawaiian Parasail in my opinion is the best on the island. All the rest of them don’t do as great a job.. the other company’s hoist you up and bring you back down. That’s not to much fun.. Hawaiian parasail does much more and will take great pics . Pick this company and you will not be disappointed.
Having a hard time getting money back
sarah_C, May 2022
The booking was cancelled by the supplier due to adverse weather and it has been more than 3-5 business days but no refund has been provided. I have requested refund but it's so much hassle to go through just to get back what I am entitled to.
Response from Host, May 2022
If you booked through a tour agency as a small percentage of customers do, you paid them not us and therefore you must request and receive your refund from and through them. As for my company, if you booked direct with us you would receive a refund within 1-3 days if not that day.
Lance_D, May 2022
The guys were great! Kevin and Ron amazing. They engaged, made jokes and made sure we were safe. I loved it thank you. Me and my gf would definitely do this again
Khanh_T, May 2022
The people were great and friendly. Recommend for people of all ages. Young or old will have a great time.
Best Excursion Ever!
Brelyn_L, May 2022
Although I got a little sea sick from the boat lol I had an amazing time. The view from up top is amazing!!! You get to see the ocean and the island. I would definitely recommend this. If you get motion sickness like me I would suggest you take some meds prior to going on the boat lol.
Safe, happy, fun!
Shakeela_P, May 2022
The staff was SO friendly and we had a BLAST! This was a great start to our week-long stay in Oahu. They made us feel safe and we were very at ease. The small boat size was ideal for getting to briefly know the other passengers.
This company is… weird.
Eric_E, May 2022
Captain and crew made us feel uncomfortable and unsafe. When communicating this directly to the business I was ignored.
Response from Host, May 2022
Sorry that you felt that way. I wonder what it is though that made you feel that way. What did you say to office staff that made you feel ignored also. Please be more specific and you will receive a better response.

Fly high 🤙🏽
Maria_M, May 2022
The crew were very nice, fun. Boat and equipments looked well maintained. They did not rush us. It was fun!
The parasailing itself was fun but…
Faye_B, May 2022
The parasailing itself was fun but the pictures we purchased was a big disappointment. Except a few before sailing, almost every picture during parasailing were fuzzy, dark, some completely black. None of them were sharp. Those were the worse pictures we had ever seen. We had hoped to have beautiful and fun memory to cherish. But these pictures just ruined it.
Response from Host, May 2022
Aloha Faye, I am so sorry if your pictures didn't come out. Most every single person who wants to purchase the SD card of pictures, first views the pictures on the camera at the ticket booth upon returning to the dock. If they like the pictures, which are normally excellent pictures, they then purchase them. Did you not view the SD card first before purchase. If you would call our number 808-591-1280 and provide your address, I will mail you a refund. Please ask to talk to Noemi and tell her that Mark approved it. I know that you will still be disappointed since what you really want is the pictures. I hope that you took some pictures of your own with your iPhone or camera.
Douglas_D, May 2022
Very fun experience. The guides on the boat were great, fun and interactive with the guests. Very short ride was only drawback.

Something worthy
Mary_H, May 2022
Coming from a gal who is terrified of the ocean, I have to say the crew made me feel safe! It was one of the best experience I’ve ever had! Definitely booking again!
Great time!
Tania_M, May 2022
We had a great time! The crew was friendly and made our time super fun! Would definitely come back and do it again!
Great parasailing
Connie_P, May 2022
The men on the boat are very nice and funny. We had a great time!!! If we come back to Hawaii we will definitely come see them again.
Erlene_S, May 2022
This was so incredibly fun... Although I am terrified of heights, I loved every moment of it. The captain and first mate were so kind and funny and put all of at ease. Even though 2 people on the same trip as ours got sick, they were very compassionate to both of them. I highly recommend this excursion.
It was great would do it...
Jennifer_P, May 2022
