What to expect...
Parasailing Sydney Harbour is a unique way to experience the harbour and its surrounds. Better still, you need no experience and no ability.
Phillip and Linda Bird have owned and operated the business since 1991. They also manufacture the parasails and equipment and supply all over the world, so you can be assured you will be in experienced hands.
When you embark on this unique experience from Manly Wharf you will usually be joined by other parasailers and passengers. Once you are on the boat you will receive a briefing and don the life jacket and harness. When you are ready to fly the winch operator will deploy the parasail and connect your harness.
From the platform you are gently winched into the skies of Sydney
Harbour up to 450ft. All that is required from you is to
relax and enjoy the excitement and the view.

Get wet or stay dry, it is up to you. However, it is recommended that if you do wish to get wet, you wear a swim suit, or bring a change of clothes. Dresses are not recommended.
There is a maximum of 5 parasail flights per hour of approximately 10 minutes each. On most trips you will have at least an hour on the boat to enjoy the harbour scenery from the water. You will then be returned to Manly Wharf. Non-flying passengers are welcome, subject to availability, at an additional cost of $15.
The parasail area extends from Manly Cove to the Watsons Bay side of Sydney Heads. Where we fly in this area will depend on wind direction and strength on the day, but mostly we fly in Manly Cove.
