Hi Lalaric

Thanks for your review! I'm glad that despite the fact you're a nervous wreck in general life, that you manage to take the plunge and skydive. Good work! ;)

Wanaka certainly is an amazing place to skydive, so thanks for choosing to come and jump here with us!

Kind regards,
The Skydive Wanaka team

I've been wanting to skydive for such a long time and I finally got the opportunity to with Skydive Wanaka. It was a seamless process of heading to the venue, checking in and then being guided at every step. The entire staff was so helpful and friendly but a special shout-out to Jason (my Tandem Master a.k.a Beautiful Stranger) who was absolutely brilliant and ensured I had the safest and best dive ever. The experience was absolutely breathtaking and I highly recommend everyone to take their first dive with them!

At 66 I reckon I was the oldest swinger in town that day!
Steve from near Brighton was my "stranger" partner....Super guy!
What an adrenaline rush....took 2 hours to get back to earth....metaphorically speaking

Had an absolutely awesome jump-. My friend and I were first jump of the day and I was in the same plane as my friend. We did 12000ft, my instructor (I think his name was Zack!) made an incredible video and took some fantastic pictures which were worth the money. He also put me at ease instantly and was so welcoming and friendly! I was incredibly nervous initially however thanks to him I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing and felt safe the whole time! A lot of laughs and banter! Thank you so much for such an amazing experience! I would highly recommend!

I have done quite a few skydives around Australia and NZ before but this was my favourite one by far! The staff were super friendly when we checked in and everything was easy and smooth without annoying wait periods. The jumpsuits were awesome as they were red/orange and looked super cool! :)
I mean you can't really beat this location - mountains, stunning lakes and on a clear day like ours even Mt Cook in the background, absolutely mindblowing and I'd highly recommend it to anybody considering a skydive in NZ :-)

We're glad we topped the table as your favourite place to skydive - we like to think we have a pretty special playground here :) the lakes and mountains around Wanaka are out of this world, we're glad you liked them too!

Make sure you come back and jump with us again some time - if you can show us a picture of your skydive with us, we honour a $100 discount!

See you next time!!
