Queenstown Paraflights - Tandem Flight

Lifting gently off the back of the boat into the breeze soar high above Lake Wakatipu and enjoy the breathtaking views that surround you with a friend.

A tandem flight with Queenstown Paraflights is an amazing experience for both young and old and an unforgettable memory of your stay in Queenstown.

Widely considered a 'must do', for many this is the highlight of their holiday in the Southern Lakes region.

Queenstown Paraflights operate winch direct para-sailing, this means you will be gently lifted into the air from the boat for your flight, and returned gently to the deck again once the experience is over - ensuring you stay safe and dry.

Per Person $129.00


  • 1 Hour on the lake with 10-12 minutes flying time


  • Price:$129 Per Person (you must book for two people with this being a tandem flight).

    Product Extras: Why not buy a paraflight's photo pack for just $39 as you proceed to checkout

    Please dress to suit conditions on the day - a warm jacket or wind breaker is a good idea just in case you get cold.

    IMPORTANT - Restrictions:

  • Combined weight restrictions: Min 50kgs - Max 200kgs
  • Minimum age 5 years old subject to staff approval to ensure correct harnesses fit on smaller children.

What a Ride!

It may have been mid-winter, but my 76 year old mum wanted an adventure so off we went and I'm immensely glad we did. How many people can say that they went parasailing in the snow?! The staff were welcoming, friendly and clearly very capable. Mum was buzzing the whole time and while it was really fun and exciting, it always felt very safe. The lift off and touch down were both very gentle and secure, the ride was smooth and the view amazing. Definitely one for the memory box.

Fantastic way to fly over Queenstown

Loved every moment, crew were great and funny. Couldn’t ask for a smoother take off or landing. If you want to experience views from up high without the walk and have some good fun then this is the thing to do.

Awesome experience

We really enjoyed our tandem paraflight. Lifted gently into the air and back down again it was fun without being scary. The crew were personable and it was nice to have kiwis running the experience unlike so many other Queenstown activities. The price was great as we got a bookme, we also got a photo package however without the book me the experience would have felt a little overpriced for the 15 mins or so we had in the air. Overall though, it was cool to do but probably the kind of thing you only do once.
