Waikiki Parasailing Experience in Oahu

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Soar over the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Waikiki during a parasailing adventure that provides bird’s-eye view of Oahu. Choose a morning or afternoon tour to fit your schedule, parasailing for up to 10 minutes with one or two other people. During the 1-hour boat ride, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy being out on the water and look for wildlife like dolphins and whales. Round-trip hotel transport is included on this small-group tour, limited to 12 passengers.
  • See the Oahu waters from 500 feet (152 meters) skyward as you parasail
  • Tour combines parasailing with a look at marine life such as sea turtles
  • Choose from departure times in morning or afternoon to fit your schedule
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from select hotels
What to Expect
Begin your tour with a pickup from select Waikiki hotels. Check in at Ala Wai Harbor and pre-order photos of your flight (own expense). Board a 12-seat boat and listen to a safety demonstration. Then, you’re off, cruising the water while everyone parasails. Choose an 8-minute parasail with an 800-foot (244-meter) line or a 10-minute trip on a 1,200-foot (366-meter) line. You are paired with at least one other tour member while you fly. Take in views from a maximum altitude of 500 feet (152 meters). Ask for an optional dip in the water or just relax while you cruise past the marine life such as sea turtles, dolphins, and flying fish. Between December and May, look for whales. Return to the harbor and then finish the tour with a drop-off at your departure point.

Fulfilled a bucket list item, and wasn't disappointed. It was great fun and the perfect day. Beautiful views of Diamond Head and the shoreline. Definitely recommend this for everyone. Can't wait to do it again. Crew was wonderful and felt very safe.

This was our first parasailing experience and it was a blast. A shuttle came to pick us up and later returned us to our hotel, we filled out the waiver during the ride and the driver gladly answered our questions and gave some helpful tips to make the experience less stressful

This was a last minute book when our prior excursion canceled last minute. Had the best ride to and from the hotel with a very talkative drive who was so friendly. The boat and parasail part was a blast! My 14 and 13 yr old girls had the best experience ever! Couldnt have
