If you want to experience the ultimate high, then sign up for a parasailing experience. The world looks a lot different from up high.
Parasailing is the safest way of achieving the sensation of flying without jumping from a plane and gives you the ultimate view of the stunning Gold Coast coastline. Fly above a high powered boat and take in the scenery whilst experiencing the rush of your life.
No experience is needed and you take off and land right from the back of their parasail winch boat. You have a choice of single flight or tandem flight (2 people). Children from the age of 10-14 can fly on a tandem flight with an adult.
You are harnessed into a tandem sail and given a quick briefing. While standing at the back of the boat, the winch operator deploys the parasail and you are gently lifted into the sky. During your ride you have the choice to be dipped into the water or stay high and dry. At the end of the ride you are winched back on to the boat.
