These guys were professional, understanding, and friendly. From the awesome views to the compassionate and funny pilot (thanks Dan!), paragliding with this company was the highlight of our trip.

Fantastic experience. I felt very safe. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of my paragliding pilot (former Canadian guy), but he appeared very experienced and friendly. Got some great photos on their Gopro. Awesome views of Queenstown and would highly recommend this experience.More

Bit nervous going up the hill but once I got up in the air it was unbelievable. You can get as involved as you want during the glide. The views are 10/10! Would recommend it to anyone to try it!

Hi. Skippers Canyon half day tour. Absolutely amazing. Can include a jet boat element but suggest you do Buller Gorge one instead if you're in that area, as it's the best one by far.

Hi joddi n. We have limited storage for valuables in the harness during the flight. If you have bigger items then you are able to leave them in our office. Have a great day, Gavin
