Overview

Enjoy uninterrupted views of the Bay of Islands from on high as you parasail from Paihia. While parasailing is a thrilling experience, it’s also suitable for a range of ages and experience levels, so almost anyone can join the fun. You have the choice of a solo, tandem, or triple parasail flight, so you can share the experience of soaring with a friend or loved one.

What to Expect
Parasailing in Paihia is the ultimate way to see the spectacular island paradise of the Bay of Islands. Jump on board our specialized parasail boat for the high-flying experience of a lifetime.

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, and keep an eye out for playful dolphins leaping below you.

First up, when you arrive at our dock on the Paihia Wharf, you'll be fitted into lifejackets and given a boat safety briefing before boarding the parasail boat. As we motor out into the bay, the crew will kit you out in helmets and parasailing harnesses. They'll explain how they work and fit best for comfort. Once at the flight zone, you'll get a final briefing about the parasailing procedures and safety, then the first flyers are ready to go.

As the boat accelerates, the parasail will lift you off the launching deck and into the air. Once airborne, the towline is slowly released by winch and you'll soar into the air, high above the water. After a few minutes you'll be at maximum altitude, so you can take in the amazing views over the Bay of Islands. When it's time to descend again, we'll slowly bring you back to the boat to land gently on the deck – without even getting your feet wet!

As the boat can carry up to 13 passengers, it usually takes around an hour to complete the trip. When you're not in the air, there's plenty of opportunity to enjoy the ride and take loads of photos of friends, family and others experiencing the thrill of parasailing.

Fantastic view over the Bay of Islands!

This is a great experience and probably the best way to enjoy the wonderful Bay of Islands! The crew was super friendly and helpful and the equipment and boat looks very new. Felt very safe even though I'm slightly scared of heights ; ) You...More

Thanks for your review and yes we are the highest parasail in New Zealand at 400m of towline form the boat. Maybe we'll see you again another time. Glen and the parasail team

Sensational service

We booked a single parasail for a friend with Cerebal Palsy and the service from beginning to end was amazing. There was easy booking, local knowledge, high quality gear and a very friendly, helpful team on the boat. They could not have looked after us...More
