Pair-a-sailing is a 2-vs-2 coin-collecting minigame in Mario Party 4. The name is a pun on the name of the sport parasailing.


The two teams are shown with one member in a boat and the other parasailing behind them, each in a different lane in the ocean. The Red Team takes off ahead of the Blue Team, then the view fades to a split screen of the two teams.


In the minigame, one member of each team is in a boat, and the other member is in a parasail, flying above the boat. The goal is to collect as many coins as possible. Speeding up the boat causes the player in the parasail to ascend, while slowing down makes them descend. If the player in the boat hits one of the crates floating in the water, they will be stunned for a few seconds, and the parasail will drop to its lowest height. The minigame ends after 45 seconds, and each member of the team gets the number of coins they won.


The ending shows both teams on an island, their boats parked. Any team that has collected at least one coin will celebrate; if a team collects no coins, its members will do losing poses instead.
