My friends thought they would surprise me with this for my birthday. It was amazing. The instructors were so down to earth and really funny, easy going. They play dope music on the boats and the actual parasailing part is magnificent! The views are spectacular! You can also buy footage and photos of your flight- which is super super crystal clear and a great way to capture the moment. This is by far the most incredible things to do if you're up here. Thanks guys, will never forget this! My apologies for the dark humour on the boardwalk haha ;) will definitely be back for the summer, thanks again.

Thank Madam B

Epic review! Yeah the crew is completely crazy and the music brilliant. We are New Zealand's Highest Parasailing and are celebrating our 20 season this year. Thank you so much for Parasailing with us and make sure to mention that you have been flying with us before for a great discount next time.

Many thanks,
Julia

Aside from the fact I was pretty sure no one could hear me scream, I thoroughly enjoyed cruising around at 1200 ft. An awesome if slightly surreal experience. I spent most of my time not thinking about what was holding me up - apparently can hold 6500 kgs - but still it’s rope and clips!

Hi guys,
Thank you so much for your review. We are a family owned and operated company since 1998 and all our crew goes through extensive Parasail specific training and has more than 6 years of industry experience. Our equipment is purposely made for Flying kiwi Parasail and imported from America. We are a very safe company to Parasail with and also worked alongside Maritime NZ to set up safety rules and guidelines for the industry. Thank you so much for flying with us and next time just remember what a safe company we are then you might be able to relax a bit more ;)

Regards,
Julia

Not very often you come across something that a mum & 13 year old son can do together and both really enjoy the experience. The crew made it a really fun experience the humour & banter between them & the customers was really fun.
