Activity Details
Choose from 800 or 1,200 feet heights. The longer the line, the longer the flight will be. You can fly single or tandem, or even triple if the combined weights permit.  The more people that fly together, the longer the flight will be. It's fun for everyone. UFO is the only company on Maui that will take kids as young as 3 years old, so it's a great opportunity for a unforgettable activity for the entire family! Anyone in your group who just won't fly, no way, no how? No problem! You can have them come in as "observers" so they won't miss out on watching those tho dared to fly high up in the sky!!
Additional Information
Other important information you should know about your parasailing adventure:

  • Prices are per person whether flying alone, tandem, or triple. The minimum weight to fly alone is 130 pounds. Maximum weight for tandems and triples is 450 pounds. Tandems and triples get more time in the air!
  • All minors under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign consent forms at check-in for this activity.
  • A digital package is offered on board. The digital camera is 12 mega pixels utilizing a 300mm zoom lens, with approximately 25 photos. That service is $30 and you are given the SD card to take with you for development.
  • UFO Parasailing features dry take-off and landings, however you may get dipped and get your feet wet by your request only. Dipping is at the sole discretion of captain for safety, and it's based on wind and sea conditions. The 1200 and 800 feet rides do include an optional simulated free fall where the boat speed is decreased so the participant can experience a parachute descent similar to jumping from a plane but stops short of contact with the water.
  • Parasail takeoffs and landings are hydraulically controlled from the back of the boat, so there will be NO running down the beach!  It's a safe ride for everyone!!
