Unreal experience! I felt really safe after our safety briefings and my beautiful stranger Hamish was super helpful too. It was so much fun and I would 100% recommend Skydive Wanaka to anyone considering taking a jump!

I was staying in Queenstown and the company offered free return transfers from Queenstown for the 9am check in. I was picked up at the Skydive office by the bus driver Julian. I had so much fun talking to Julian during both the rides. So professional driver & a very knowledgeable person. He stopped at all the scenic points enroute to Skydive Wanaka so we could take pictures. He even obliged driving through Wanaka town on return journey so that I could see the Wanaka lake. A very Kind & helpful person...Thanks Julian for the wonderful bus ride :)
Now Abt the Skydiving..I had booked 12000ft skydive. On arrival, I was shown a pre-skydive video to get acquainted with the various photo packages & skydiving perse. I went with the basic photo package option. as I felt other packages were a little expensive.The staff was chatty & personal yet very professional. The whole procedure of getting ready, to going up in the plane, skydiving & landing was very safe. As luck would have it, I got a free upgrade to 15000ft while we were on the plane as there was no one diving from 12000ft but only 15000ft. That was totally fantastic.. I was ecstatic. My tandem master Ilil ( I hope I've got her name right) was also very nice & professional. 10 minutes before landing with the parachute, the tandem master tells you & makes you practice in the air how to get your legs up for the right landing. Very smooth experience indeed. Skydiving experience was obviously awesomewith fantastic views of lakes and mountains!
