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.

Great experience !

The tour guide was phenomenal , he put my kids ( 7 & 6 yrs old ) at ease right away. Overall a very pleasant ride, not a crowd , had a blast. I will recommend it to friends!
Fun experience, but needs to last the full hour.
, Sep 2021
Although the experience was a lot of fun, I wish it lasted longer. The whole experience, which was supposed to be an hour was more like 40mins. The parasailing portion which was supposed to be 10mins, was more like 7mins. It didn't feel like we didn't get our moneys worth.

Aloha Jessica, I'm glad you did have a lot of fun but sorry if you were not out for a whole hour. We are limited to the amount of passengers we can carry now due to government COVID restrictions so my guess is you did not have so many persons on board and for that reason everyone parasailed already and then it is time to return to dock. If you stay out there and just float around until an hour is up, that is a recipe for sea sickness. Sorry if you felt you didn't get your moneys worth, owe do try our best to please every person.
The Captain& Crew Guy...

The Captain& Crew Guy were really nice& made us feel safe! The whole experience is an hour, but parasailing seemed like only 3 minutes.

Thank you for your review. I know how you feel, I always feel that way at Disneyland waiting in long lines for only a 1 minute ride. The parasail ride takes 3 minutes just to let the line out 1000 feet and then another 3-5 minutes to reel it back in. It takes longer reeling back because that is usually when the captain uses his expertise to lower you down and dip you in the water like a tea bag. It seems like the whole ride is very short but it is close to or matching what is advertised for the length of line chosen. Parasailing should not be thought of as how long of ride but as the novelty it is, the unique experience that it is. Hope we see you again and then make mention of how you came before and thought the ride was short and the captain will likely give you a little longer ride, the problem with that is all the others will want a longer ride also but he might be able to sneak it in since you would be a returning customer. Mahalo and Aloha.
Great Time

The boat ride was great! The captain was very knowledgeable and the views are amazing! Water was provided on the boat and we were lucky enough to see some wildlife as well!
