My friend and I did our first skydive with Paradise and we LOVED it! The company was super professional through the whole trip. Their groups are smaller than other skydive places in Queenstown, which makes the wait for other jumpers shorter. Compared to other options...More

Response from SkydiveParadise | Property representative |

We are a group of 5-6 divers ages 13, 15, 18, and 2-3 adults all 44 years old. Our flight is arriving from Auckland in Queenstown at 10:00 am on Dec 28. We'd need to check in our Air B&B property booking first at Manata Lane Fernhill and go to your meet-up zone. Will we have enough time to do the Sky Dive on our first day--Dec 28 if we book the 2:30pm slot? What time do we need to be in your meet up zone? We're leaving on Dec 30 and our flight to Auckland is at 1:50pm.
