Welcome to New Zealand’s Highest Parasailing Flight to 1,300 feet. Jump on board our specialised Parasail Boat for the high-flying experience of a lifetime. The scenery is simply awesome. Take a solo, tandem or triple Parasail Flight, and soar high above the tranquil blue waters of Paihia, Russell and the Bay of Islands. Enjoy the incredible 360 degree aerial views. You will see stunning aerial landscapes all the way out to Cape Brett, it is just breathtaking.
The crew will fit your lifejackets and a comfortable hands free harness, a brief from the skipper, and the chute is inflated at the back of the boat before you are clipped in and then airborne to enjoy the exhilaration of free flight. Take off and landing is easy from the back deck of this custom designed boat and with over 20 years experience and a perfect safety record, it’s safe for the whole family with no physical restrictions or experience required.
At the conclusion of your flight the chute is winched back in and you land on the boats stable platform ensuring a smooth landing and you don’t even get wet.
Each flight lasts about 10-12 minutes in the air and the whole duration of the trip is approximately one hour.
Summer time we dip in the water so if this is something you want to enjoy make sure to wear your togs and bring a small bag onboard with a change of clothes or a towel. The dipping is controlled by the skipper and perfectly safe.
Just sit back relax and enjoy the amazing sceneries at 1300ft. On a clear day you might see the “hole in the rock’ and the outer Islands past Russell. We regularly have dolphins, Orca’s and other marine mammals visiting the Bay so keep your eyes out. You might see different current lines in the water and sail boats pass underneath you.
What a fabulous team building activity!
Are you having a family or business/Christmas get together? Bring them all Parasailing in the Bay of Islands. On our Private charter trips you have the boat to yourselves for an hour and a half (yes this includes shuttle time? We will pick you up from any private Islands in the Bay or private yachts. Bring a cooler with some snacks and drinks for an epic time on the water. We can take up to 12 people on the boat at the same time with everyone taking turns to go up in the parasail.
What to Wear:
We recommend wearing shorts and a t-shirt over bathing clothes, and flip flops or sandals for your feet. In cooler conditions, it’s recommended to wear a long-sleeve shirt, hoodie or jacket, and even in summer an extra layer is nice to have, especially after a dip!
What to Bring:
Sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and a small towel are recommended. You can bring cameras at your own risk. For hot days, drinking water is also nice to have since the boat ride is about an hour. You can purchase water on board or at the dock
