Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

We pre-booked a flight early in the morning for a great price and were lucky enough to have blue sky and sunshine. The crew was helpful and we felt safe at all times. It was an amazing feeling to be high up above Lake Wakatipu surrounded by the mountains. You can buy a CD/DVD with photos that were taken every 30s by a GoPro. It was worth bringing gloves and a hat as it gets quite cold up there. Sun glasses are also great when the sun is out. Do it!

A brilliant view!! I just happened to see them out on the lake and thought it would be fun so my friend and I went up tandem. They allowed us to take up the GoPro which was refreshing since you can't on many activities. You get pretty high and the scenery is magnificent! The team was so much fun, they even dunked our feet in the chilly water. Thanks guys for a great time!!

Having lived in Queenstown all our lives had the opportunity yesterday to put our daughter and her friend on a paraflight - day was amazing, the staff fantastic and the kids absolutely loved it - incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to participate in things like this right on our doorstep. The kids never realised what Lake Wakatipu looked like from the air and were blown away by the experience. Thank you
