The team at Big Sky Parasail is a blast to hang out with and made the whole experience a hoot! We loved every second of our flight from the high vantage point over the lake to the freefall and the "dipping in the lake banter"

If you're in taupo you have to parasail. Best view you'll get of the town and the lake, staff are awesome and make the experience a thousand times better. Then go to mulligans for a beer and sign the flag!

Enjoyed a triple sail with my boys, 8 & 7. What a memorable experience for us all. Lloyd and Adam did a great job explaining the experience and related well to the boys.

I am all about adventure so I was so excited to try this! So fun and the staff were very funny and outgoing. I recommend doing this when in Taupo for the amazing views, great time and not too expensive.

A friend and I booked the parasail not knowing what we should expect. But we are totally happy right now, best activity in Taupo you can do! We did the tandem parasail and the guys on board were so nice and funny, they did a great job! You get a perfect view of Taupo and 360 degrees of the surrounding... More

Absolutely loved our time in the sky. We rang the 0800 number to see if we needed to book, they said to get down there straight away and they would take us. No time to chicken out. These guys were fun, polite and professional. I would totally recommend this to anyone at any age.
