Parasail, Jet Ski and Bumper Tube Rides

For all your water sport thrills and spills join the crew of NQ Watersports for the adventure of your life.

Enjoy the calm waters of Trinity Inlet, with the Cairns foreshore and Esplanade on one side and Coral Sea on the other. Solo and tandem experiences are available and you don't need any experience or a license, just a sense of adventure and some sunscreen.

All of the Cairns water sports adventure activities are suitable for people of all ages and are a great family activity. Qualified guides provide full operational and safety briefings prior to all NQ Water Sports activities. Equipment is fully maintained to ensure the highest levels of safety and reliability, at all times.

You could say it's a combination of water-skiing and parachuting ? a mix that is as exciting as it sounds!

Feel the thrill as you are gently lifted off the deck of the custom built parasailing vessel to soar 300 feet above the waters of Trinity Inlet. The ballooning parachute hoists you high into the air providing breathtaking views of Cairns City and mountains.

You can fly solo or tandem, stay dry or take a dip. The trained drivers can also raise or lower the height of the parasail, so you can drop gently in the water and then be hiked back up 300 feet into the air. You are then gently winched back safely to the platform of the boat.   The Parasailing experience takes about 10 minutes in the air but more time needs to be allowed for the entire experience.  Weight restrictions are a minimum of 45 kilos and a maximum of 160 kilos.  For children who are under 45 kilos they can tandem with an adult.

You will be riding the latest Yamaha VX 1100 cc four-stroke, built for comfort and stability. This 30-minute adventure can be enjoyed as fast or slowly as you like and the professional staff are on hand to provide assistance and keep it safe.
