This is an absolutely must do. You take off & land on the boat and stay perfectly dry. The views are magnificent and depending on the weather/wind you can move around a little but it's great fun. If you have a video/gopro, take it up...More

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.
