What to Expect
Begin your customizable skydive adventure with pickup from a designated meeting point in downtown Queenstown in a comfortable tour bus. Relax and enjoy the scenery as you travel about 20 minutes to the drop zone in the foothills of the Remarkables.

Meet the professional jumpmaster upon arrival and get a safety briefing and orientation so you know exactly what to expect. Suit up in goggles and a jumpsuit, then board the plane and head up to your chosen jump height. Safely strapped to your instructor in a tandem position, jump and free-fall for around a minute over the shores of Lake Wakatipu and the sharp peaks of the Remarkables before he or she pulls the ripcord and you float gently down to land, taking in the amazing scenery on the way down.

Return to Queenstown for drop-off with a certificate of achievement and opt to purchase free-fall photos and video to remember your experience.
