It was amazing, the views of Wanaka were wonderful. Did it at sunset which was lovely and I was asked if I wanted my feet to touch the water while still in the air. This was totally worth it. Would do it again

We took our two teenage boys up and they had a great experience. We felt safe and in good hands with Gino. It is worth going for a ride on the boat to enjoy this magical place.There are not much better things to do on a perfect summers day in Wanaka.

Great views over lake Wanaka on a cloudless early spring day, beautiful scenery of the surrounding landscape. A fun experience and the crew was friendly and professional. Would recommend other visitors to give this a try when they're in Wanaka.

It's so much fun, people of any age can do it although there is a weight minimum. You can do it in any weather, although it's cold and windy in the air

I arrived without any booking and ask to do a parasailing in the morning. They take me in the next departure boat and everything was perfect! They are really lovely people and take care of you! The view of the lake and the landscape are so beautiful! Definitely a good address to try the parasailing!

Following a private wedding a small group of us went out with the crew. They were very professional with some great laughs. Would highly recommend
