My teenage son and I took the step into the wild blue yonder. We were blessed with a gorgeous Queenstown day and a fantastic crew who looked after us from go to wo. Highly recommended for anyone looking for their first, second or third jump.

I had the most amazing morning with Skydive Paradise! The staff were all fantastic, Jags and Olly looked after me and calmed those nerves! I was pretty scared at first but it was one of the best things I have ever done! The view is probably the best you will find in New Zealand, definitely recommend getting the photo packages.... More

To celebrate one year anniversary in New Zealand, my girlfriend gave me a 15.000 feet jump as present and everything has been just perfect. Jags was really helpful and organized with the booking and with all the possible assistance. The weather has been fantastic. The view doesn't get any better than that. Olly was my instructor and he has been... More

Had a great experience with Skydive Paradise. Was initially terrified but on hindsight it's not that scary after all! We picked 12,000 ft but the experience is so short that I would recommend 15,000 ft :) The plane is small, fitting 2 pairs at a time. My instructor Milan did the jumping; all I had to do was to lean... More

Went skydiving with my partner for the first time last winter. Both of us were a bit nervous, wondered why we ever were afterwards. The guys out there are a top class organization. The location is probably one of the most beautiful places worldwide to jump, the lads are very reassuring and good natured, it's something everybody should do! Best... More

I have been wanting to skydive for years but never thought I could overcome my fear. After reviewing countless videos/reviews of other skydivers experiences, I decided it was time while visiting Queenstown, the adrenaline capital of the world, and jumped on St. Patricks Day (I'm 50% Irish). After checking out both companies there, I chose Skydive Paradise. They a smaller... More

You have to do this if you're in Queenstown! The views are incredible and you will have the time of your life. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Had a good laugh with my tandem master the whole way through and felt completely safe and secure throughout the dive. A must do.

Thank Ben A
