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

Your tandem parasail flight will have you soaring 1200 feet 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 the dock on the Paihia Wharf, you'll be fitted into lifejackets and given a boat safety briefing before boarding the parasail boat. As you 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.
