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.

We loved it

We really enjoyed our parasailing experience! I felt safe and more relaxed up in the sky than I had expected. It was less of a thrillseeker experience and more of a tranquil flight. Highly recommended if in Queenstown

FUNtastic!

We did the tandem paraflights last December we really enjoyed it. The flight was about 10-12mins which is enough to experience the beauty of Queenstown. It was also very safe and we definitely did stay dry. The only let down was the photo pack. I wish it the go pro attached took video instead of photo every 30 secs. We had like only 3 decent ones, decent, not great.
