Big Sky Parasailing Tandem - 1000ft Deluxe

Come get high with Big Sky and enjoy the exhilaration and breathtaking views of Tandem Parasailing as you gently soar above Lake Taupo...

Highlights

  • Experience the highest parasail in the central plateau!
  • Enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Taupo and its stunning surrounds from up above
  • Feel the exhilaration of floating 1000ft above in the air
  • The tandem parasail is specifically designed for 2 persons - come and experience it with a friend!

A trip to Taupo is not complete without experiencing an iconic Big Sky tandem parasail at Lake Taupo!

Specifically designed for two persons so you can share the experience with someone, gear up with a friend and feel the excitement build as you are both lifted off the back of our boat to soar gracefully through the air 800ft above the lake. Truly magical!

Experience a parachute freefall (optional) where we stop the boat and let you descend down to the water's edge, only to be whisked back into the sky. The best parasail freefall in New Zealand!

Big Sky Parasailing operates 'winch direct' meaning you lift gently from the boat for your flight and return gently to the deck again once the flight is over - staying safe and dry.

A must do experience when visiting Taupo!

Awesome experience

It was one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life. Recommend to every one out there who loves to get a bird's eye view above the mighty Taupo lake. Also needs to remind awesome crew members who made our day wonderful. Cheers!!

Great experience but....

Love the experience itself! Fantastic crew and even better activity! Just felt a little ripped off when I was told I can’t take my own Gopro up to record because of insurance purposes that it might fall and hit someone on the lake??.....but then yet they charge you $40 to take there Gopro up and record?!
