Thank you so much Flying Kiwi Parasail. Being locals we never get to do all the amazing water activities, but we finally made time. What a treat! Most amazing views. Great staff. Would highly recommend.

Really nice! Good experience, especially to do in the Bay of Islands. Skipper and crew were excellent! Super nice guys! Felt really safe. Photos were a bit on the average side. Would recommend taking your own camera rather than paying $35. We booked through bookme.com and got a discount.

Highly recommended. They will rake pictures and video for $35... but if you could hold onto your camera, you could use your own. Stayed dry the whole time, but take a sweatshirt as it is windy on the boat.

Firstly, WOW. This is an amazing MUST DO attraction if you are ever in Paihia. The whole experience from start to finish was seamless. The views are spectacular, the ride is smooth, breathtaking and "very high". Even if you are afraid of heights (like me) you cannot be any safer, the crew look after you well and make sure you...

Went parasailing with a friend in Paihia. The view you will get is amazing and take your camera with you. You can dip your toes in the water or your whole body. Either will make the experience better.

That was my first parasail experience and it was a very enjoyable one. Thanks to the wonderful team that puts it together. My wife was so reluctant to get on to it but she felt that she would have missed this awesome adventure had she not opted to. The two member team on the boat make you very comfortable with... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our product. I am happy to hear you had a fantastic flight! I'm sorry that you were not satisfied with the photo/video service and will address that as follows. We take some very far off shots to give you an appreciation of how high you are. Sounds like our crew took too many... More

My partner and I decided toI do the parasailing whilst in Paihia. The boat is 31ft long and the skipper and crew were super friendly. The para sailing was awesome and the views amazingover Paihia and surrounds. Well worth doing if your in Paihia

My partner and I did a tandem parasail for his 40th birthday. I loved the whole experience, from the moment I phoned and spoke with a lovely lady when booking, to the boys on the boat who were very professional and as I was a little bit nervous not been fond of heights, they soon had my mid at rest...

Really nice parasail, nice safe activity that allows you sweeping views of the beautiful Bay of Islands. The actual activity ran well, time schedule adhered to, friendly knowledgable crew on board the little vessel and thanks for the music, it was really nice listening so some rock on the water. Overall glad I did it :-) $79-99 per person, allow... More
