Overview

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!

Enjoyed every moment of it. Wear warm clothes if you’re doing this in winter times as it’s windy up there in the sky. Gloves are essential or your fingers freeze. Once you’re up there you feel like a bird. Ride was smooth and the views...More

Great experience. I had experienced parasailing before but it was a first for my husband. Fantastic setting for parasailing and the guys running it were friendly and professional. It's quite expensive but fun, gentle, feels secure and provides a unique view of Queenstown. Would recommend.

Did parasailing last week with my family in tandem flights. The experience was awesome!!! Matt, Quinn & Hugh were fabulous and thooughly professional. I was nervous at first but they made the experience fun and memorable. Two thumbs up to Queenstown Paraflights. Highly recommended.

Was in two minds about doing this but once we got up WOW! Totally recommend it. Quinn was our driver, really friendly and professional. Great value for money and would recommend to my friends and family.

The only way to see the views of Queenstown is floating above it.. find the big smiley face on the lake - it’s worth every penny!! And the boys who run aren’t bad looking either!
