What You Can Expect

Waikiki Parasailing Experience in Oahu

Enjoy ocean views on a parasailing tour!

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.

We really enjoyed our parasailing experience on January 12th. We took the first cruise at 8 AM and the weather was perfect as we moved out of the boat harbor with the Waikiki skyline receding in the background. There were eight tourists including us and the crew of Kevin and Jay quickly went over the safety rules and had everyone fitted with our lifejackets and ready to lift off, two at a time. We've done this before a decade ago in Maui and this was just as much fun. We were the last one's to go up and did the 1000 ft line which allowed us to stay up for about 10 minutes. The views are spectacular with the skyline and Diamond Head in the foreground. As we were reeled in back to the boat we got a nice water landing for a little liquid sunshine before we floated up again and landed on the boat. Jay had a nice set of photos of our parasailing experience on an SD card for 30 - and well worth it! A couple of folks who went up before us were taking their own photos/videos on their camera phones that were secured in a water proof transparent sleeve and attached securely with a cord however, we decided not to take a chance and enjoy the moment instead! The Hawaiian Parasail team on the ground is just as professional - Thank you Jamie and Noami!! We received a confirmation call the evening before and everything went off smoothly. We were staying right next door at the Hilton and walked over to the boat harbor in the morning. However they do provide pick up and drop off for those who are staying in area hotels within the vicinity. All in all a great way to celebrate our 30th anniversary!

This was so much fun! Great friendly crew, accomodating to us coming directly from the airport with all our luggage and holding it for us too! Even though we went up last we were up in the air before we knew it. It is so peaceful when you are up in the air... and very exciting getting the optional dunk on the way down! Would highly recommend.

I personally didn't participate in this, however my 16yr old and her 2 cousins did and they had a ball. I went along as a spectator and everyone who had a go were screaming with excitement and as much as they didn't want to be dipped in the water at the end - agreed that they were happy they did. We chose the highest height and I think you would be disappointed if you didn't do the same. Like the girls said it you are going to do it - go all the way. They absolutely loved it and said the views were amazing. They even had a plane flying close by which looked like it was the same height as them. They said they would do this again in a heart beat.....

Our pick up was on time and only minutes away from our hotel. Our driver was very friendly and informative. We did the 800 ft line which was a great experience. I look forward to doing the 100 ft. next time.
