  • Feel your worries slip away as you soar and float through the air
  • Get fitted into your harness and safely clipped to the parachute

  • Spot schools of fish, pelicans, dolphins, sea turtles, and other wildlife
  • Admire views of South Stradbroke and WaveBreak islands from above


Scale the heights of adventure with a tandem or triple parasailing adventure in Surfers Paradise. Accompanied by an instructor, hop on a parasailing boat specifically designed for the job. Feel your cares slip away as you drift softly on warm air currents and drink in the gorgeous views below. After you’ve been briefed about your flight, sit back on a boat and listen to music on the water. After the boat reaches the fly zone on the Broadwater, it's time to make your way to the platform at the back to get ready for your flight. Get fitted into your harness and clipped to a parachute by deckhands. Once the skipped gauges the perfect conditions, be released high into the sky (at a controlled rate) to begin your parasailing adventure. Once you are high enough, enjoy 360° views ranging from the Surfers Paradise skyline to South Stradbroke and WaveBreak islands and around the mountain ranges of the Gold Coast, including Springbrook and Tambourine Mountains. Down below, spot schools of fish, pelicans, and other water birds on the Broadwater. If you're lucky, you can see bottle-nosed dolphins, sea turtles, and the odd dugong. After your flight, get back on the boat. Please note there is a 10% surcharge payable on all Qld Public Holidays & all school holidays payable at time of check in
