Went tandem parasailing with our 11 year old. What a fabulous experience. We personally wouldn't call it thrill seeking, more a relaxed calm opportunity though others on our trip put it up there on the bungy jump scale. Once harnessed in with a short briefing you got hooked on and they lift you up gently and away you go. Flying... More

I spent the whole afternoon convincing the bloke to do this...from start (the booking agent was super cool and relaxed...he never pressured us to go, I like that treatment) to finish this was an amazing buzz. I never intended to go up with my boyfriend but I was encouraged by the two-70 year old sibling's (who wanted to have an... More

Was absolutely freaked out about going para sailing for the first time however the staff were brilliant and were very comforting and understanding. They acted very professionally and it was on of the best experiences I have ever had.

The staff were great and assured me if I was not comfortable they would bring me down pronto. Amazing experience , very glad I did it,felt safe at all times but not for... More

The gang at FLYING KIWI PARASAIL out of Paihia, Bay of Islands NZ are great.... Safety is paramount. You feel so relaxed as you soar high above the beautiful Bay taking in all the views. And it's true in saying it's the highest in NZ... Not much prepares you for high high you actually are! If you don't want to... More

This is just one of the most awesome things to do in the Bay of Islands. The views are amazing, the whole experience is amazing and I would recommend this for anyone. Give it a go and you won't be disappointed. The crew were great and took great care of everything.

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...
