You’ll be lifted into the air over the water attached to a large parachute, and one of the best features of parasailing in Port Stephens is to view the pods of dolphins below you.

If you are parasailing at the right time of year, you’ll also be able to witness breaching whales from the air. Between May and September Humpback whales migrate up and down the coast off Port Stephens, and are easily visible when they surface.
