Website and chat feature was easy to use, configurations for the boat sleeping arrangements were definitely misleading.

Product rating:   good

The boat is old and kind of crummy. It is also very cramped with 15 people and 6 crew. Some of the crew were wonderful (Jenni, Jason, Angela, Matt) and some of the crew really seemed downright bothered by our presence (Claire, Drew). Like it was a chore or they'd rather be texting. Once you get to the reef it's amazing, it's the getting there and the boat that are the struggle.

Hi Jaimie,

Thank you for your feedback and sorry to hear that you missed out on the photos of your parasailing experience. It is rare but sometimes the equipment can fail due to technical issues. As with all the activities we sell on our website, if you had spoken with the tour operator at the time they would have been willing to offer you another ride free of charge to rectify the camera issues and provide you with your photos. As I'm sure you have now left Queenstown and live in Australia we'd like to offer you a $50 gift voucher to use on our Australian site.

Hi Barry. Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm sorry to hear that your parasailing flight in Queenstown was cancelled last minute. I have been in touch with the company that operate the parasailing and they have informed me that the boat unfortunately required some unforeseen mechanical repairs and they had to cancel all bookings on Monday morning for 4 days until the repairs were complete. It was frustrating for the Parasailing company that they couldn't fly for 4 days and it must have been even more frustrating for you. As is the case with all cancellations by the activity provider, we have of course refunded your credit card in full. Thanks again for your understanding.

Hi Ellen. Thanks for your feedback and sorry to hear your parasailing flight in Queenstown was cancelled due to bad weather. Often if the weather is poor the parasailing staff will leave the jetty & go home for the day however you should have been able to get in touch with them on the phone. I have passed on your comments to their management who have assured us that if no one is at the jetty then there will be a sign asking customers to call the free phone number.

Latest Questions about Parasailing - Paraflights NZ (Queenstown)

How long are u up in the air for?

Comments

Each parasailing flight in Queenstown lasts for around 10 minutes. The boat ride will last about 55 minutes as you head away with a group of people who all parasail so the rest of the time on the boat you can sit back and relax and enjoy the views of the lake, mountains and Queenstown.

hi I was wondering if I am 138kg and brother is 70kg if we are still able to go together or not

Comments

Yes you and your brother could do the Nevis swing together as a tandem in Queenstown. The maximum combined weight limit is 220kg.

Comment by: Everything Travel Group (Callum) on 10th Jun 15 at 18:56

The maximum weight limit for the parasailing in Queenstown is 200kgs. If you are slightly over ,there is a little bit of flexibility depending on the weather conditions on the day. This will be decided by the boat captain.

Hi can I just turn up to go Paragliding or do I have to book.? I am coming to Queenstown with a group so im not sure when or if I could do it but if you let me know what the times are I could try to work it in. Many Thanx Allison

Comments

Hi Allison. Depending on the weather, the parasailing in Queenstown does operate all day. However, if you do want to get the early bird special which is a 50% price reduction then you do need to book in advance. The Early Bird special is available every day at 11am during winter and 9am during summer but it does book up. What date are you thinking of? If your group all want to book and pay separately then get them to do so via the Book Now button and mention in the 'additional information' field that they are travelling with you and I will make sure you are all together

Hi Li. The weather is usually great for parasailing in Queenstown in winter with often clear blue skies and little wind. It is cold though so when doing any of the outside activities just make sure you wear lots of layers as well as woolen gloves and beanie etc.

For 3 adults (combined weight under 200kgs) is it possible for a triple?

Comments

Hi Amy. Yes, weather and wind conditions permitting you can book 3 adults as a triple on the parasailing in Queenstown but its quite tight up there in the triple harness which is why generally there needs to be at least 1 small child as part of the three otherwise its just too tight in the harness, irrespective of the total weight being under 200kgs. You are welcome to book however on the day if the instructors say that it is going to be too tight a squeeze then they may request that one of you flies solo and the other two fly tandem.

Hi Joe. Yes you will need to book 2 tandem Queenstown parasailing flights. You can book 2 adults tandem ($109 each)  and 2 children tandem ($79 each) so the total is $376. You can then choose to fly 1 adult + 1 child  each time when you are on board the boat. The total trip time will be 1 hour and each flight lasts for about 10 minutes so each person will get 10 minutes in the air.
