Whow, this was truly an amazing experience!!! The crew were great and we were made to feel completely at ease. It is hard to describe the pleasure of floating above the Bay of Islands at 1200 feet in the calm, quiet, still atmosphere below a big parasail. This is definitely a MUST DO when visiting the area. If you have... More

I have been flying for 43 years, but any chance to get airborne is always wonderful. We had a wonderful experience parasailing over the Bay of Islands. What was interesting was the launch from the back of the boat and the landing back on the boat at the end of the parasailing. It is very unlike the parasailing that we... More

Hi Carmen, thank you for your review. I am so sorry for the video not being on the card, but that doesn't make sense. If there are photos of YOU on the card there should be a video of you as well. The video will be in a separate folder though. Let me know how you get on. Regards, Julia More

My partner & I went up on the 22nd of October, and found the whole experience absolutely thrilling! I took my phone with me up into the air and got some amazing pictures - we even videocalled our friends and shared the fantastic view, live! It looks SO much further up, when you're the one in the harness. Chilling in... More

The group I went with was a little worried about the weather. We had just come from Auckland and it was rainy but by the time we got to Paihia, it was gorgeous weather! I went tandem with a friend. It was nice scary at all and I got a wonderful view of the harbor. I highly recommend going here... More

Absolute awesome experience. Crew is fantastic! They are super friendly and very welcoming, made our experience worth while! So far best thing I've done! Got some great photos and you go pretty high too. Peaceful up there with breathtaking views and a pretty smooth flight. Great value for money! If your in Paihia, do this. I highly recommend it :)...

Me and my partner both thought this would be one of those "high in adrenaline rush" parasailing moments but this was more of a calm set type. We loved every moment of it and would recommend it for all types, especially those afraid of heights (like myself) as it was no where near as terrifying as I was imagining it... More
