“Not to Miss!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2016 via mobile

I initially booked the skydive for our daughter and her boyfriend and hesitated to join because my Husband does not like heights . However after family chat I decided I wanted to join, it had been fully booked. At the last minute someone dropped out,so I filled the place. My husband came on the bus to the field and took photos - maybe he prayed .....The bus driver Callum was very friendly and pointed out places of interest so the ride was enjoyable. When I was introduced to my tandem guide I knew I would be in good hands. The Guide said he would make 18 jumps on a busy day and has done overv13,000 to date - very experienced & professional. The team at Skydive obviously enjoy what they do & they do it very well. A super experience that will last forever.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2016

The guys at Skydive Paradise are great - clearly passionate about skydiving and the thrill it gives you! This was my first time and they made me feel at ease and comfortable - a worry never crossed my mind! The whole experience was incredible but to top it off was the scenery! What better place to skydive than over Glenorchy and Lake Wakatipu?! I was lucky enough to jump on a clear blue sky day - the colour of the water was incredible and you could see as far out as Mt Cook! Thanks for a great experience, I will definitely be back again!

“Incredible experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2016 via mobile

From the driver who brought us to the sky diving drop zone in Glenorchy , the front office manager who gave us some introduction, photoexpert and of course the skydive master Ollie, it was an incredible experience, which could not be topped :-) with the remarkable landscape and lake view. The team is very helpful, knowkedgable and simple fantastic.
