The staff at Skydive Paradise were the best. Incredibly welcoming and professional! First dive for my friend and I and it was wonderful! Location allows for BREATHTAKING views of the South Island. Highly recommend.

Thank you Alyson! the feeling of skydiving, literally, on top of a lake is amazing! other drop zones have lakes and even the beach next to them, but we're the lucky ones to give that experience, somehow it helps you to relax faster when you see water under than when you jump above land. Come back! we'll be here :)

“The best experience of my life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2016 via mobile

The whole experience with Skydive Queenstown was incredible. It's very intimate and you feel like you are in the safest of hands. The staff is welcoming and lovely. I skydove with Ollie and he was just THE BEST. This was my first time skydiving and definitely was the highlight of my trip to NZ. Go with them - and get the video / photo package. You'll want to relive these memories over and over.

“Awesome view of Lake wakatipu.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2016 via mobile

About 40mins drive from queenstown to aerodrome.
Friendly ground staff and master sky divers who explain to the simpliest way to understand.

Weather was prefect. Wind was calm and nearly cloudless sky

Amazing view from the sky as the aircraft climb around the snow capped mountai peak.

The drop was amazing with prefect veiw of the lake and the mountain. Totally blow my mind away.

Must do in queenstown!

...That moment when you jump out of a plane, trusting your life to a person you just met... and when you survive, life will never be the same and it worth it!
