Big Sky Parasail offers 2 different flights. A 500 ft. and an 1000 ft. flight. We operate two 9 metre purpose built winch boats. Ensuring a smooth dry take off and landing from our flight deck.

Come experience our one of a kind optional freefall. This is where we slow the vessel and let you parachute down to the waters edge, only to be whisked back into the sky. We can fly up to 200 kilos. Single, tandem or triple! Come get high, fly Big Sky!

Big Sky is a seasonal operation. Oct.-April.
