What an amazing place to skydive - great views over Lake Wanaka, Lake Hawea and Mount Aspiring National Park. The instructors were relaxed but professional, and made my partner at ease for her first skydive. Prices were reasonable in line with other skydives on the South Island and we opted for the 15000ft jump - we both felt extra 15... More

I had an excellent tandem skydive with "SG", who were very professional and really looked after me. I completly trusted him and I am very thankful for the excellent and exciting experience. All other staff were also very friendly and helpful.

Did a skydive here at the end of December and it was without doubt the best experience of my life. It was a very professionally organised experience without losing any of the fun factor along the way. Have to say I was genuinely terrified going up in the plane and when the other 7 jumpers jumped at 12,00ft leaving only... More

My family and I all had an awesome time at Skydive Wanaka! Every employee was great to us and extremely helpful. Our skydive masters (tandem buddies) were awesome as well! I would highly recommend people skydive here.

Doing a skydive has been on my bucket list for many years. When we planned the trip to New Zealand, it was the first thing on my list to do and it was going to be in the Queenstown/Wanaka area. The views in Wanaka are breathtaking and when you are able to take it all in from 9,000feet in the... More

First off, I'm terrified of heights, BUT if I wanted to do it once, what other place is better than Wanaka? It's all about the views! From the tallest mountain of NZ - Mt Cook, to lakes, cities, lands, beautiful colors and hues of white, blues, yellows and greens! It was absolutely THE best experience at the BEST location! So...

Breathtaking experience. Though I was, of course, a little bit nervous, the staff and instructor gave me such clear and good instructions that I allways felt save and enjoyed the whole experience. From strapping myself to a stranger, sitting in the plane as sardines in a can, sitting on the floor, and jumped out of the plane and enjoying the... More
