Katoa Lake Rotorua Parasailing

    What to Expect
    Meet at your hotel lobby or the Rotorua Lakefront and embark on a 30-minute parasailing adventure. Launching from the flight deck of a 26-foot (8-meter), purpose-built parasail vessel, you will have about 12 minutes of flight time as you soar through the air like a bird. It's a truly unique and electrifying experience to sit back and relax while enjoying the exhilaration of free flight up to 400 feet in the air. Admire the stunning views of Lake Rotorua and its surroundings. 

    You will take off and land directly from the boat, so no water contact is necessary and no previous experience is required. Book a solo or tandem flight and discover why this is one of Rotorua's most popular adventure activities. The crew is dedicated to providing passengers with a quality, safe, and enjoyable experience that exceeds expectations.

    Observers are permitted on board for an additional fee, if seats are available.

    My partner and I loved our parasail and would recommend it to anyone! There were 3 young children doing a triple parasail off the same boat of us. We were impressed to see how well they were looked after by the staff. Lamar and Ross were very professional and very friendly who

    I left writing this review as a last resort because I wanted to speak to the business first and give them a chance first to rectify the issue that a customer left their place feeling very upset. We booked a parasail beginning of Jan, I think it was, when we were on a road trip

    Hi there, thank you for your review. Whilst there is always two sides to a story we feel your side has been blown well and truly out of proportion. The public needs to be aware that you threatened me with blackmail that pay us or I will complain to all of the authorities. We were told to review your reviews and were startled on doing this as quite a few have a similar tone to them We stand by our decision and will not compromise on safety. This is our final correspondence. Cheers Fiona

    The second time we have brought teenagers here. They loved it. Awesome activity. It was a beautiful day and I was able to go out as an observer too. There is a weight restriction so not suitable for young children.😊
