My younger son has begged for years to skydive. His older brother was willing to do it with him, so I chauffeured. The drive up is gorgeous. The scenery of the airstrip is magnificent.

The staff at Skydive Paradise were the best. Incredibly welcoming and professional! First dive for my friend and I and it was wonderful! Location allows for BREATHTAKING views of the South Island. Highly recommend.

SkydiveParadise, Guest Relations Manager at Skydive Paradise, responded to this review

Thank you Alyson! the feeling of skydiving, literally, on top of a lake is amazing! other drop zones have lakes and even the beach next to them, but we're the lucky ones to give that experience, somehow it helps you to relax faster when you see water under than when you jump above land. Come back! we'll be here :) More

Wind was calm and nearly cloudless sky Amazing view from the sky as the aircraft climb around the snow capped mountai peak. The drop was amazing with prefect veiw of the lake and the mountain....
