Activity Details

Free roundtrip transportation from selected Waikiki based hotels!

Conveniently located in Waikiki, Paradise Water Sports offers Oahu parasailing tours along world-famous Waikiki Beach. Best of all, absolutely no experience is necessary. Feel free like a bird as you soar high above the ocean's surface and enjoy fantastic panoramic views of Diamond Head and the Waikiki skyline. All the noise from the boat and the city cuts away as you ascend, leaving you and your flight buddy in your own pocket of paradise.

Paradise Water Sports offers three packages to choose from, the main difference is the line lengths: 500 feet, 750 feet, and 1,000 feet of towline. Also, if you have a family member or friend who would like to come along on the boat, but who doesn't want to parasail, no problem. We also offer Observer fares for the boat ride only.

Packages Line Length (ft) Flight Duration (min)
Beginner Package 300 ft of towline 4-5 min
Turtle Package 500 ft of towline 5-6 min
Dolphin Package 750 ft of towline 6-8 min
Whale Package 1000 ft of towline 10 min

Your Waikiki parasailing adventure begins as you step onto the parasailing boat at the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor in Waikiki. Your friendly captain and crew will brief you on operation procedures and safety, and you'll then cruise along Waikiki Beach and get into your harness to prepare for your flight. Then you're ready to go. The parasail will inflate and lift you up into the air for an amazing ride.

Nearing the end of your flight, if you have previously told the captain you would like to get wet (this part is optional), you'll be lowered to the ocean's surface so your feet can touch the water. Then it will be time for your final approach back to the boat's flight deck, where you'll gently land in a seated position.
