We took our two teenage boys up and they had a great experience. We felt safe and in good hands with Gino. It is worth going for a ride on the boat to enjoy this magical place.There are not much better things to do on a perfect summers day in Wanaka.

Great views over lake Wanaka on a cloudless early spring day, beautiful scenery of the surrounding landscape. A fun experience and the crew was friendly and professional. Would recommend other visitors to give this a try when they're in Wanaka.

It's so much fun, people of any age can do it although there is a weight minimum. You can do it in any weather, although it's cold and windy in the air

I arrived without any booking and ask to do a parasailing in the morning. They take me in the next departure boat and everything was perfect! They are really lovely people and take care of you! The view of the lake and the landscape are so beautiful! Definitely a good address to try the parasailing!

Following a private wedding a small group of us went out with the crew. They were very professional with some great laughs. Would highly recommend

Amazing parasail after getting married on the shores of Wanaka with some great friends. Fiona and Gino were fantastic. The views are simply amazing.

My boyfriend and I booked a parasailing trip for his parents, and they absolutely loved it! They got to go up together, and said they had a wonderful time and that the people were great. We'll have to try it ourselves next time!

My daughter has wanted to try parasailing for a while and had a fabulous experience with Wanaka Parasailing. The trip was well run, professional but fun and she felt perfectly safe the whole time. We paid an extra $30 (I think) for the photos - the camera is mounted on the harness so the photos are excellent. Definitely recommended.

First off, Fiona and Gino are the best. Both super safe and extremely friendly hosts. The boat named after her is comfortable and perfectly designed for the viewing and photography. As captains of the craft, both Gino and Fiona provide a thrilling ride for the fliers and beautiful opportunities for the photo taking friends. The seat harnesses are comfortable and... More
