Obviously skydiving is an insane awesome experience. The views are unimaginable! Beautiful! My skydiving "captain" was Jack. Awesome effort in pointing out views of interest on the way up... and down! ;) The office staff are 2 star for me. Not polite and seemed annoyed with guests for just being there. Traveling solo, I decided to do in Wanaka while... More

Did the 15.000 ft jump and was really nervous, but felt secure in the company of my tandem partner Lois, who was relaxed and funny. I'm totally happy, that I did the skydive at Wanaka with its stunning landscape and would definitly recommend it!!! Amazing experience and so much fun!

If you want to jump out of a plane surrounded by the most beautiful views in the world, Skydive Wanaka is the place to do it. You’ll fly 12,000 or 15,000 feet into the sky and jump out attached to your “beautiful stranger.” After free-falling through icy clouds for 15 seconds, your tandem jumper will release your chute and you’ll...

I can't say enough good things about this experience. DO IT!! One of the most thrilling and fun things I've ever done, and in the most spectacular scenery you can imagine. They've got the process down, and my guide Jason and photographer Brittany were both SO professional, warm, friendly and reassuring... I wasn't a bit nervous (well, maybe a tiny... More

Absolutely amazing! Can't visit the adventure capital and not take part in some extreme activity! There are several skydiving companies in the Queenstown area but I chose Skydive Wanaka since I was only in town for a couple of days and Wanaka was known for consistent days of good weather. Unfortunately, the day that I was scheduled to jump, the... More
