“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

We lucked out with a beautiful day and clear skies - we could not have picked a perfect day for our maiden parasailing experience with a picturesque backdrop. It was just our family of three and felt a very friendly and professional service from the owners Fiona and Eugene. With three of us taking turns, we were able to view all sides of the beautiful Wanaka lake - snow clad mountains on one side, green covered mountain side and the Wanaka town backdrop on the other sides. The views and the experience are still fresh in our mind. Worth the experience.

“Awesome day out :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

Had an awesome day out with these guys - it was so much more relaxing than expected, it's just beautiful up there.. The views are spectacular (!) and it's so peaceful.

The drive out in the boat gives you views from another perspective (the scenery in Wanaka is great) so you get the boat ride and the parasail, good good fun.

You start/finish on the boat, so you don't get wet at any point. 2 of us went on the boat and you can choose to go up in the air together (tandem) or solo while the other waits on board.

Highly recommended!
