The experience is phenomenal! Skydiving itself is a pretty "standard" sport that is found worldwide but what stands out here for SkyDive Wanaka is two things: professionalism and the natural surrounding beauty of the Wanaka skydiving area. From the onset, you can tell the team takes safety as a huge priority and the ground and main tandem guy check, double check and triple check you are safely harnessed to them. The camera flyer guy (the secondary sky diver that takes a video of you while in the air: comes at a cost though) and the main tandem guy are hugely funny and reassuring so you can Ensure you are (mostly) relaxed for the jump. Once you are out of the plane, oh my, the free falling experience combined with the scenery took my breath away. No amount of money could describe the moment. The landing was smooth and safe and throughout the fall, the tandem guy gave clear instructions to Ensure everything is smooth.
In all, I would give this experience a 6 star if I could. Please do yourself a favour and spend that extra cash to tick off this "bucket" experience.
