If you could only do one thing while in Maui, do this! Hang gliding was on my bucket list and I am so glad to have done it here and with such a fun instructor. Armin makes taking to the sky seem natural and comfortable....More

Amazing experience with Armin. Birds eye view of coast, jungle, waterfalls. Saw whales breaching below. Felt completely safe throughout and learned a bit about flying as well as about the area. Highly recommended for anyone. Just do it, worth every penny.

You feel very secure in your little "pod "or "cocoon" in the air. You are actually somewhat sitting in the lap of your instructor with his arms on either side of you. Very secure feeling!
