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

Skydive will be one of your best memories. The crew is professional, kind and funny (especially my beautiful stranger Jamie:)). Even though I was so nervous and scared when I jumped outside, the brilliant view from above made me excited and happy at once. The 15 seconds of falling is the best experience in my life and no doubt I... More

This will be one of the best moments of your life. The whole team is super friendly and funny (and of course they are very professional too), the view from above is breath taking and you just cannot allow yourself to miss it. Try it and you won't be disappointed for sure! Probably the top attraction on our trip to... More

My partner and I both did a tandem skydive and the skydive itself was amazing! However, the photo package was too expensive for us ($170 EACH) so we chose not to get any photos, which is fine. However, the skydivers we were attached to took up their Go-Pros to photograph us anyway. They wouldn't take a photo of us beforehand... More

Booked this directly the day before I wanted to jump with Skydive Taupo - I would recommend booking a week or two in advance with Bookme as you can can save up to $40. Only One negative - Check in was a bit disorganised when we arrived. I said to one of the ladies at the desk that I was... More

Absolutely amazing and worth every dollar! What a rush! Was the perfect today, blue sky and a fantastic view over all the snow-capped mountains from Mt. Cook to Mt. Aspiring. The crew is super friendly and professional. And if you're as lucky as I was today, you get strapped to a really beautiful stranger ;) Definitely the place to go... More
