Experience the thrill and excitement or a relaxing and peaceful time on a parachute with up to 1 friend of yours. During a parasailing in Paihia, you can watch the tiny sailboats, jumping dolphins, orcas and the beautiful landscapes of the Bay of Islands from the heigh of 1 300ft.
To go parasailing in Paihia, come at least 15 min ahead to Paihia wharf on Marsden Road. You can take your belongings with you on the boat. Once everybody is on board, we set off and the adventure can start. Our experienced guide will hand you equipment and brief you about safety.
As the parachute will fill with air, you will gradually go up and watch the world getting smaller and smaller under your feet. Once you reach 1,300ft, you will experience amazing 360-degree views of the whole Bay of Islands. We can also capture your whole experience on a GoPro camera which takes a photo of you every 5 seconds and make a video. So, put a big smile on your face! Besides, if you want to have some more fun, you can spice up your parasailing in Paihia by asking your skipper to dip you into the sea. If there are free spots on the boat, observers can go with us for additional 30 NZD.
Note: The start day/time of your parasailing flight might be changed in case of strong wind.
