Im terrified of heights but my kids were desperate to do it with me and their cousins. It was a bucket list item when I was younger but fear got in the way. Now I decided to do it. So pleased I did. I had a great dive instructor, Oscar, who reassured me. 9000 ft. Before I could change my mind I was out and falling...eyes shut tight and stomach in mouth! I opened my eyes when the parachute opened and tried to enjoy the stunning scenery. Absolutely stunning. I was pleased when I hit the ground though. Everyone should try this once. Worth it!

Always wanted to skydive and Wanaka is a beautiful setting for this! Prepare to be flexible as obviously weather is changeable, but as I knew this from the offset I wasn’t surprised that times had to be juggled a bit. After checking in there was quite a delay before my flight and the staff were not that great at keeping me up to date with this. I also didn’t purchase a photo or video package as I felt they were quite overpriced, but if you have friends or family with you they can easily get photos of you in your gear, getting on the plane, and landing. My buddy for the jump was excellent, very enthusiastic, reassuring and full of fun!

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review.

We always tell our customers to allow up to three hours for the whole process. If we are effected by weather, we experience delays, which may increase wait times. Obviously weather is out of control, but we always do our best to keep our customers informed of any delays.

Thank you for giving us feedback on our photo and video package, we will take this in to consideration.

We are so thrilled your jump master was excellent and thoroughly hope you had an amazing experience.

Thank you.

Me and my girlfriend did the 12.000 ft skydive. Well organised, clear info and explanation. That made us feel comfortable. Nice views over lake Wanaka. We will never forget this. Only downside is that they ask too much money for photo and video.

Hi 1989matthiash

Thanks for your review! Glad to hear you and your girlfriend enjoyed your skydives with us here in wonderful Wanaka, and that you felt comfortable throughout the jump :)

It certainly is beautiful up there - it's one of the best ways you can see Wanaka from above!

Kind regards,
The Skydive Wanaka team
