Big Sky Parasail is located in Lake Taupo, New Zealand. We offer 2 different rides. A 400 foot 12 minute ride ($89 per person) and a 800 foot 12 minute ride ($89 per person). If you book in at 10AM you will receive a $10 early bird discount. Non flying observers may come along to watch ($25 per person) on space availability.
You can capture your experience with one of our 2 digital photo packages. We take 30-40 shots of your entire flight with our Cannon EOS 300mm zoom lens. You can either purchase the 1 gb reusable SD card ($35) or we can download it to a CD while you wait ($25).
All rides come with a simulated freefall. This is where we stop the boat and allow you to parachute down to the waters edge. Only to be whisked back up into the sky!
Big Sky operates a 9 metre purpose built maritime NZ approved winch boat. Passengers are hydraulically lifted to from the flight deck. Ensuring a safe and dry experience. Passengers can fly single, tandem or triple as long as they meet the weight requirements. No experience necessary.
We can take up to 8 passengers on the boat and depart hourly from berth 20 in the Taupo marina. We are a seasonal operation (Dec.-April) so bookings are required.
Come get high, Fly Big Sky!


PLEASE MAKE YOUR BOOKINGS AT LEAST 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE SO WE HAVE TIME TO CONFIRM YOUR STATUS.
WE ARE LOCATED IN THE TAUPO BOAT HARBOR BERTH # 20.
PRINT OUT YOUR VOUCHER TO PRESENT TO CHECK IN AGENT IN THE HARBOUR ON DAY OF ACTIVITY.

PLEASE BRING A JACKET FOR WIND, EVEN ON THE WARMEST DAY THE WIND IS STILL A BIT COLD! SUNSCREEN AS WELL.

  • The Staff were to friendly and wanted to just have fun with teh trip but still maintain safety. We had the best time and loved having all the photos after the trip. It wasn;t the best of days so the staff only did what we wanted but then pushed us to our limit. The views were amaizng and i have told everyone that they need to give it a go. 5
