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!

This is a really fun way to get your adrenaline fix without too much nerves! It lasts longer than a bungee and the swing but still gives you a really awesome experience of high views and flying fun. We didn't get wet too! Wish we could have stayed up there longer!

We did a trio flight and it was magnificent, high above the lake on a beautiful day. The guys that run the flights are awesome and so helpful. Everything about it was easy from take off to landing. This is one thing to put on your list if you are planning a trip to Queenstown.

This is one of the coolest things to do. It looks way more extreme than it is, so dont be scared! Perfect for all ages. You get the most amazing views from being up in the air, but you feel so safe at the same time. Great guys that take you out - well worth every cent!

The parasailing is an amazing and unique way to explore Lake wakatipu. The staff are helpful, friendly & very professsional. We were up there for around 10mins and my fingers felt so cold. But its worth it. Will definitely do it again the next time I am in Queenstown :)

My husband and two young boys (6 and 8) did this today and loved every second of their para flight! Good value for an incredible experience. Boys have not stopped raving and want to go back again and again. Operators were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend!!!
