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!

“Great Experience with kids triple flight”

The Guys were very professional and we got an extra boat ride as the first time was too windy once on the lake. A we brought on Grab One - they were accommodating as to when we took the ride.

“Great view and more thrilling than you would think!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Today we went for a Paraflight with these guys and had a great time!! I have done a lot of adrenaline activities whilst on the road so I wasn't expecting this to be up there with them but I was pleasantly surprised! This experience will give you a GREAT view of Queenstown in a really cool way, but it also got my heart pumping when the wind caught the parachute and soared us up even higher!!! Brilliant fun, definitely recommend! Cheers guys!

“Worth the deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

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!
