Did this yesterday. A boat of about 12 went out and did parasailing 2 or 3 at a time. When it was our turn, as we took off I felt as though I was going to slip out of the harness. I was unable to adopt the seated position my partner had and just dangled in an uncomfortable way the... More

All the staff were friendly and chilled out (one certain guy perhaps a little over-friendly to the ladies!). The boat trip around the harbour while waiting for the others to finish was good - music playing and checking out the nice scenery. We had harnesses, life jackets and a helmet on - however when up in the air did not... More

My brother and I have done lots of adventure sports in the North Island sky diving and canyoning, so after all of that, this was a very enjoyable but not overly exhilarating or thrilling experience. Pretty views, very relaxed, professional and funny men on the boat, great great tunes, good vibes, great conversation with fellow parasailers on the boat. Nice... More

We had a fantastic start to the new year lunch at the Duke followed by Para Sailing. This was my first time it was breath taking 300+ meters above the bay. Really hard case when my mobile rang floating up there. Absolute most do when you are in the Bay. Totally professional operation!!!!!!!!!!

I would definately Recommend doing this activity in Paihia. The only downside was the photo package was not that great that i purchased for $35. The photos were dark due to sun... More

Rich and his crew put you right at ease and it's so spectacular when the parachute flies up into the air! Was a little nerve racking at the highest point but still a great way to wake up. Highly recommended

Really glad we choose to do this instead of a cruise. The kids enjoyed it so much we paid for them to do it a second time. The boat is purpose built and the crew lovely. Great service and very knowledgeable. You launch from the boat and land in the boat so you don't get wet at all (unless you... More

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
