What To Expect

Begin your tour at the Ala Wai Boat Harbor where 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.

Windy But Worth It
Anna_K, Sep 2023
Seeing Waikiki from the air was so surreal and will be unforgettable for us. The boat ride was rough and the wind whipped us around a little more than expected. We are used to Para-sailing in Gulf Shores, AL where the waves aren’t too rough and the wind isn’t strong at all. That wasn’t the drivers’ fault at all and they were great getting us to and from the para-sailing spot.
Breathtaking parasailing adventure.
Linda_M, Sep 2023
Never thought I would do this, but am do glad I did. Beautiful views. Great boat ride and the parasailing was relaxing and fun. This groups been in business for forty years and it shows. Don’t skip this adventure. Warning don’t park here. A couples car got towed while we were out.
Highly recommend

Amazing experience! Was parasailing first time with my kiddo and the staff was great in making us feel Comfortable! Great views !
Great experience.
Will_P, Aug 2023
Easy directions to get to locations. Good customer service at sign in. Polite and enthusiastic guides. Great experience overall. Do think that method of taking clear pictures should be more automated from start to finish and also positioned for clearer, unobstructed shots of experience. The picture aspect was only thing about experience that could improve.
