Gold Coast Water Sport Tandem Parasail
The parasailing boat used for this tour has been specifically designed for the job, but that doesn't mean it is all about functions and no fun! The enthusiastic deckhands will keep you amused with one-liners and tall tales throughout the trip, and after you've been briefed about the flight, simply sit back on an impeccably clean boat and enjoy listening to music on the water.
After the boat reaches the fly zone on the Broadwater, it will be time to make your way to the platform at the back to get ready for your flight. One of the experienced deckhands will fit your harness and clip you into the parachute. The skipper will gauge the conditions, and when they are perfect, you will be released high into the sky (at a controlled rate) to begin your parasailing adventure.
Once you are high enough to touch the clouds, the skipper will follow the thermals across the Broadwater to ensure you have a memorable, magical parasailing flight. There is nothing quite like flying, so be prepared to feel your cares slip away as you drift softly on the warm air currents and drink in the gorgeous views below.
While you are in the air, you will have 360° views ranging from the Surfers Paradise skyline to South Stradbroke and WaveBreak Islands and around to the mountains of the Gold Coast hinterland, including Springbrook and Tambourine Mountains. There is usually plenty to see in the water as well, as schools of fish, pelicans and other water birds are in abundance on the Broadwater. The clients have reported spotting bottle-nosed dolphins, sea turtles and even the odd dugong in the past.
Parasailing is the perfect activity for shared memories, which makes it a wonderful outing for friends, families and couples.
Parasailing is a disability-friendly activity. The needs of a guest with impairment can be easily accommodated to ensure they have the opportunity to experience the wonder of flight, and the beauty of the Gold Coast area.
