When you tandem paraglide with Paraglide Maui we take off from the side of Mt. Haleakala at either our Ferns Launch at 6500 ft of elevation for a 3000 ft descent during our Top Gun flight, or from our Echos Launch at 4500 ft of elevation for a 1000 ft descent during our Full Experience flights or our 1K flight. Whichever Paraglide Maui adventure you choose the views of Maui’s central valley and the bicoastal views are spectacular. You and your instructor will run down a grassy slope to get launched. There is no cliff. There is no sensation of falling.
