Me and my girlfriend rocked up to Queenstown with the idea in mind to skydive from the beginning. The only problem with this was that the weather was pretty ordinary so we rang in advance to actually make sure they were flying! After 2 separate calls Jags back and forth we jumped on a bus (probably one of the most... More

Did my first skydive at the very beautiful and scenic Glenorchy which is home to many Lord of the Rings filming sites. My tandem guide, Milan was very professional and conforting, providing appropriate instructions and encouragement. He high-fived me during the jump (as seen in picture). I would highly recommend Skydive Paradise if you are in Queenstown and would like... More

My 2 sons recently did a sky Dive with Skydive paradise, it was the highlight of their action packed trip, and they were lucky enough to get their sky dive in, before it was too windy to jump. My sons will never forget this experience..as a travel agent I will recommend jumping to all my clients - Thanks Guys

My third time skydiving, Nevada, Alberta and now here. I went with my boyfriend as this was his first time. The view is absolutely breathtaking I haven't experienced anything like that. Hands down the best jump I've done so far. The company has the upmost respect for safety and places safety above all else. I would recommend this to anyone.... More

By far best place I've jumped out of a plane, was nice as the snow was on the tops of the mountains and you could see mt cook in the far. Worth doing while in Queenstown!

Amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone who has the inclination to try skydiving for their first time, or repeat jumpers. It was an amazing experience, and the staff was fantastic.

I have done a skydive before, but this experience was something else. The view was mind-blowing and the staff extremely cooperative. The view of Glenorchy is beautiful as you go up in the flight, I took the 12000 feet so there was a lot of time in the air in the drop, and I enjoyed the paraglide on the way... More

Well run team from go to woe. They were professional, informative, thorough and friendly. The instructors make you feel comfortable all the way through. If you feel like an extra splurge get the USB package it's well worth it!! Thanks Jags, Max, Ivan and the team.
