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.

Was a lifetime memory...

Was a lifetime memory made for my husband and I! We loved every minute in the air and aboard the boat! Our crew was great!
Bumpy but fun
, Sep 2021
The crew was awesome, the ride it's self was a little julting but fun. I did it once and that was good enough for us. If u haven't done it at least once, I recommend you do
Definitely a water sport to try
, Sep 2021
My wife and I were looking for a water sport activity in Waikiki and we are very happy we found Hawaiian Parasailing. This was a first time experience every trying the activity and it truly is a unique experience to float above the boat by about 800 feet and see the beautiful view of the island. We really appreciate how fun and kind the boat crew were. I would raise caution that for an hour trip you get about 3 minutes of flight time as each party takes turns going up in the parasail. My wife and I both thought the three minutes was worth the experience.

We had the absolute greatest experience Parasailing! Our instructors were so fun and outgoing. I'd highly recommend this company! What a blast!
good overall
, Sep 2021
My experience was good overall. I wasn't exceptionally fond of one of the two crew member's lack of sensativity. He has a sense of humor which borders disrespectful... The behavior of the said crew member lacks sensativity but is tolerable... since the parasailing experience is fairly short. In this age of covid 19, I suggest you may not be able to find a better suited crew member so a little coaching / training may work. Otherwise, overall experience was good. Thank you for providing this opportunity to share.
Awesome experience

Great captains. Super entertaining, kudos to the guys that put this together. The trip wouldn't have been a fun without you guys.
Awesome Experience

This was our first time parasailing and we loved everything about it! Russel and the captain were the coolest guys and made sure we had a fun time doing so.
Flying high
, Sep 2021
What an incredible experience! The captain and crew were so good. They kept us laughing while explaining everything in detail. The best surprise was having the opportunity to purchase pictures for only $30.00. Such a reasonable cost for great pics.
