Our skydive dropzone is located only 40 minutes from New Zealand’s most famous resort town of Queenstown at the edge of a small alpine village known as Glenorchy “Gateway to Paradise”.

Skydiving with Skydive Paradise offers you not only the most breathtaking scenery in the world, we also promise you the most personalised tandem skydiving experience in New Zealand. We offer skydive options from 12,000ft and 15,000 ft and the opportunity to purchase photo and HD footage of your skydive experience.

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

I had researched before we arrived in New Zealand where I wanted to do sky dive and Sky Dive paradise had it all. A fantastic view of the mountains and lake. I was not disappointed. We got picked up from Queenstown and made our way to the air strip. There was a little stop off for a photo on the... 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.

This was the most exciting thing i think I've ever done!! The instructors are brilliant and support you every step of the way. The scenery from up there is sensational, has to be seen to be believed. Do it, you won't regret it!!!

From the moment I got in the van, Mike greeted me and my fellow jumpers. He is a super nice and funny guy. He drove us about 45 minutes from Queenstown to Glenorchy. Mike stopped along the way so we could take in the view. Stunning! Once we arrived at the airstrip we watched a video which prepares you for... More

Naturally I was quite scared and nervous about jumping out of a plane at 15,000ft (!!!) but from the minute I checked in with Mike in Queenstown and he drove us out along the beautiful Glenorchy road, I knew I was in safe hands. At the drop zone I met up with Jags who made us feel like it was... More

From the moment you're picked up in the shuttle bus and the driver insists on seat-belt use (compulsory but nonetheless effectively optional in NZ) you know that safety is paramount with this organisation. The whole set-up is slick and confidence boosting. The views from the drop are stupendous. The 'add-ons' costing $169 for photos and video seemed a little on... More

If you want to do a skydive make sure you do it in and with Paradise! The location could not be more beautiful. Surrounded by snow capped mountains and the Wakatipu basin this is the perfect place to jump. The ultra friendly team make the whole experience that bit more magical. Special shout out to Jags, my driver Mike, and... More

I went there solo, doing skydiving for the first time (never dared to before) and I'm in my late 20s for context. This was one of (if not THE) best experience of my life. The feeling was indescribable and I recommend everyone to do this at least once in their life (for me it will have been the first of... More

The experience surpassed very high expectations. The setting was beyond spectacular. Jags handled challenging weather conditions with aplomb, going out of his way to get us on a plane after initial reservations were canceled. So grateful!
