I’ve always wanted to parasail but been apprehensive and having a fear of falling. The team at big sky parasailing in Taupo were really good, giving me lots of reassurance and confidence that I was in safe hands. I had a ball, really enjoyed the experience even getting dipped into the lake. I would highly recommend and yes, I would do it again.

Had great fun despite the weather being misty and wet. Everything was explained clearly and both people were lovely. Photos are a bit pricey though.

We had an AMAZING trip with the Big Sky Parasail company. The team was super friendly and explained everything really clearly. The parasailing was an absolute blast and I would highly recommend it to everyone, whether you like heights or not! There were 4 small groups on our boat which was the perfect size to have fun on our flight as well as enjoy the lakes while the other groups were flying.

This was an amazing experience and the absolute best way to see views over Taupo. Right from the get go we felt in safe hands. Ian and Liam were awesome and we had an amazing time out on the water and in the air. We got dipped into the lake and was surprised how warm the water was. Up in the air you not only have great views but it is perfectly peaceful as you glide over the lake. So much fun - not to be missed when visiting Lake Taupo. Penny and Alan
