Overview
There are few more unique ways to see the Bay of Islands than catching the wind and parasailing high above the water. See the Bay’s towns, forests and islands – all the way out to Cape Brett’s famous Hole in the Rock – from the sky on this aerial adventure. Take to the skies with your friends or family on tandem or triple flights. Your children can even go parasailing – this adventure is suitable for all.
What to Expect

  • No previous experience required and we have NO physical or age restrictions to Parasail with us.

Exhilarating Experience

Great crew, well managed flight, you don't even get your feet wet. High flying. I recommend their additional digital photo package, a personal movie and about 120 still high resolution photos from an attached go-pro camera. Good value for those priceless memories. Recommended

Date of experience: November 2018

Must do!

Amazing views and friendly staff who are experienced in what they do. Gliding 1300ft up is the best way to see all of the bay of islands! Definitely recommend this awesome experience for all ages!!!
