Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Totally rushed.
, Jun 2021
The parasailing was cool but the boat showed up 30 minutes late. We were told there couldn’t be any single riders because of the “wind” which was clearly a lie as there were other boats with single riders. They were clearly rushing us through so they could get back, get their last group and finish for the day. It was evident from when they started and were putting our gear on. The description says a 10 minute parasailing experience ours was less than 5 minutes (we timed it because we felt we were being rushed). I definitely cannot recommend Hawaiian Parasail they are totally not worth the money spent. Their are plenty of other options go with any of the other companies.
So much fun!

This was such a fun way to see Honolulu! You get amazing views of the city while in the air. Our guides were hysterical and made the trip really fun. Just be prepared to get soaked when they splash you in the water on the way down!
Awesome time!

The company of the crew was fantastic. I personally requested for the captain, I believe his name was James, I requested for him to have fun with us and throw us around and he did. We got dipped 3 times and it was an amazing experience. If I go parasailing Again im going with them.
