Parasailing tandem will take high flyers soaring up to 150m above the water. The ballooning parachute is winched into the air from a speed boat and enables you and a friend to see Port Stephens from a rare and fascinating angle high above the water!
Catering for the timid to the adrenalin charged junkie, the parasailing experience begins as you step onboard and you will receive a short briefing from your flight instructor. When it's your turn to parasail, you and your friend will be secured in a safety harness sitting one infront of the other, where we'll use the latest hydraulic technology to release you on and off the vessel.
From the platform of the speed boat the two of you are gently winched into the sky, reaching a maximum height of approximately 150 metres. So just sit back, relax and enjoy the amazing view. The choice is yours as to whether you would like to stay dry or take a dip. Observe the marine life as Port Stephens is resident to approximately 80 dolphins - so whether you are in the air or enjoying the boat ride, the dolphins seem just out of reaching distance.
At the completion of your 8-10 minute flight you will be winched back onto the boat platform. The safest way to parasail is by landing on the boat's platform. When not in flight, you will enjoy an exciting boat ride whilst others take their turn.
The price quoted is for two people flying tandem. You will be on the boat with up to 8 other passengers and 2 experienced crew members.

Comfortable, casual clothing such as board shorts is recommended. Don't forget to bring your sunglasses, hat and sun cream. Bring along you swimmers if you would like to be dipped and a camera to capture the action.
