An Awesome Parasailing experience. Fly up to 600ft with smooth takeoffs and landings while staying dry. The only company permitted in the South Island to be able to do so. You can fly as a solo or fly with a mate Tandem. If you dare grab you can even grab two mates and fly as a triple. Flights can be catered for your level of comfort. You can choose from a gentle scenic flight or if the mood is right we can give you simulated freefalls and even a water touch/Dip. You make all the decisions. You will find us located at the Main Town Pier - Queenstown. We look forward to entertaining you!

My adult children and I went parasailing as a less expensive and (for me) less frightening alternative to paragliding. The boat trip of an hour allowed enough time for three twin flights and my solo flight. My kids did the twin flight and they had a great time, evidenced by their huge smiles at the end of their turn.

I am not fond of heights, but this senior citizen felt perfectly safe flying 500 feet above the lake. It was exhilarating.

Not scary. Smooth ride. Amazing views. Hosts fun and chilled, no pushy selling. Anyone can do this. Give it a go.

Absolute stunning views especially from high in the air. As other people have mentioned in these reviews, its so peaceful once up in the air. The guides were great. They explained what was going to happen; what we need to do etc. I was amazed at how comfortable it was strapped in the harness. No, digging in to body parts,... More

My wife and I decided to do this - she was a little reluctant at first. Once you take off from the boat you just enjoy the fantastic experience A+

This is a really fun way to get your adrenaline fix without too much nerves! It lasts longer than a bungee and the swing but still gives you a really awesome experience of high views and flying fun. We didn't get wet too! Wish we could have stayed up there longer!

He staff and team here were very professional. Very fun. Quite cold in winter on your hands so would recommend gloves but great fun and you dont even get wet!! Would definately do again but would like to try summer. Chose this over hydroshark and think i made the right choose. . Plus cheaper too :)
