Parasail in paradise … almost anyone can fly … young, old, single or in tandem (or even triple depending on body weights and wind conditions) … it’s something for everyone to enjoy and experience. Absolutely no experience is necessary and there is nothing to learn … you just sit back and enjoy the ride. You begin your flight seated on the back deck of the boat … your harness is attached to the parasail, and as the boat begins to accelerate, you feel the vessel sliding out from underneath of you and WHOOOSH … off you go! The length of your flight is about 8-10 minutes in the air. At the end of the ride the crew reels you in like a fish, and you land like a feather standing up on the back deck of the boat.

CMaui Parasailingruise Ship Passengers

NCL cruise ship passengers in Kahului are able to parasail either day in port. Transportation is not included, and is most economically done by renting a car. We can arrange a rental car with shuttle pick-up at the harbor.  Drive time is approx. 30 minutes for all tours.


Lahaina cruise ship passengers can parasail and we suggest West Maui Parasailing since they have a location in the same harbor where your tender arrives.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

What a weird sensation! Imagine yourself sitting on the back deck of a boat. You are wearing a harness … behind you a parasail is already inflated. The staff clips you onto the line, and you hear the boat’s engines power up. You feel the boat sliding out from underneath you … and moments later the boat has disappeared and you are hovering over the water just a few feet from the surface. Out goes the line … and away you go … a giant kite against the horizon!

Parasailing has evolved into a highly safe art form. The take-off and landing both happens on the boat. When your ride concludes, they reel you in like a fish. You land gently on the back deck of the boat where your adventure began. If you want them to, they will add a free-fall effect during your ride. West Maui Parasail will let you fall until your feet hit the water.

Anyone can do it and there is no experience necessary and nothing to learn. Certain weight limits do apply … see the details above for each tour company’s guidelines. But keep in mind these are guidelines, and are subject to change at the captain’s discretion based upon wind and ocean conditions.

West Maui parasailing boats hold 12 people, so larger groups can go together on one boat … each boat is limited to a maximum of five flights so a party of 12 will need to do tandems and triples in order for everyone to fly during one timeslot on the same boat. One non-flying observer is allowed per boat.
