Hey team, thanks for the great ride.
This is the boat level footage that I captured with the Insta 360 One X. Karen and I really enjoyed our ride, and the great company as cruise around watching others have their turn.

Throwback to before Big Sky got a makeover!

Our first boat, Big Sky, is originally from Montana, USA, aka ‘Big Sky Country’. The name stuck but the original paint job which included a grizzly bear got an upgrade to the boat you see cruising around Lake Taupō now 😎

We are proud to say Big Sky Parasail has been operating on beautiful Lake Taupō since 2007! As one of best things to do on the lake, it’s time to book your parasail in this summer and tick it off the bucket list!


Sometimes this lake looks more like the ocean. Getting a birds eye view is one of the best ways to see it! Book your parasail today at or call us at 0800-7-BIGSKY


Good vibes only when you fly high with Big Sky 😎🤙



Bring on more bluebird days and toe dips ☀️ We’re ready for summer! Are you?


What a weekend for it 🙌

We have had do much fun taking everyone out, looking forward to another day tomorrow 😀


360 degree views of beautiful Lake Taupō from our boat, as well as from up high in our parasail, we’ve got you covered! Reserve your spot online at or call 0800-7-BIGSKY.


Hellooo Taupō! It’s been a long winter. We’ve missed you guys, we hope you’ve missed us too! We’re dusting off the cobwebs, revving up the engines, and looking forward to our first day back.

What an EPIC summer we had! We really appreciate every single person who managed to come out parasailing with us this season and for the new memories we’re walking away with. Our season is short and intense. We work long hours, we work every day (weather permitting), and it can be hard work at times, but it is incredibly rewarding all because of our customers and the smiles you bring to our faces! So, a massive THANK YOU from this year’s team at Big Sky Parasail. We had so much fun and hope you guys did too! That’s a wrap for our 2020-2021 season, we’ll be back next summer! Keep watching this space for future updates and this is only, ‘See you later, not goodbye!’


It’s not a bad office. We had a great time this season and hope you guys did too!
