An Awesome Parasailing experience. Fly up to 600ft with smooth takeoffs and landings while staying dry. The only company permitted in the South Island to be able to do so. You can fly as a solo or fly with a mate Tandem. If you dare grab you can even grab two mates and fly as a triple. Flights can be catered for your level of comfort. You can choose from a gentle scenic flight or if the mood is right we can give you simulated freefalls and even a water touch/Dip. You make all the decisions. You will find us located at the Main Town Pier - Queenstown. We look forward to entertaining you!

I am not fond of heights, but this senior citizen felt perfectly safe flying 500 feet above the lake. It was exhilarating.

My wife and I decided to do this - she was a little reluctant at first. Once you take off from the boat you just enjoy the fantastic experience A+
