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!

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

A skydive on New Year's Eve is a such great idea. I was planning to do this on 1st Jan, then I figured why not end 2016 with a big jump, so I asked Jinx to book one for me. The staff were super friendly. I was a little bit nervous at first, but Peter and Oscar cheered me up.... More

What an amazing time to fly at 12000 feet, not just fulfilling my dream but to experience it with my daughter was epic. Five star. Next time 15000 feet😎

This is an incredible experience. We drove up to Wanaka from Queenstown to do just this dive and it was worth every moment. The guys here are very professional and run a smooth operation. We were shown a training video and they took all the details on health and stuff before they put us on the list. We did the... More

The skies were beautiful, scenery is beyond amazing. Only thing is the exorbitant prices to add on for buying the videos. Other than that, the whole experience is truly unforgettable!

Barni was my lifesaver and one of the most beautiful stranger ever to skydive with! The drop feels lasted for 2 seconds and the rest were complete bliss =) I was lucky to see the cloud heaven and the entire Wanaka town on a cloudy day on 8 December 2016. Highly recommended to all my families, friends, colleagues and whoever... More
