I thoroughly enjoyed my skydive over the beautiful Glenorchy near Quuenstown, NZ. Although I was nervous, I knew it was something I wanted to do and where better to do it than here?! Capturing the fantastic scenery was just as important for me, as the thrill of jumping out of a plane and I was so pleased to have chosen... More

Highly recommend this place. Glenorchy has got to be the best place for skydiving. The birds eye view was spectacularly amazing. Did it about two weeks ago and cannot wait to go back. The experience was awesome and with the friendly staff there, it made my experience even better. They were professional and fun! Had the biggest smile the whole... More

I can't believe I actually did it! It was GREAT! The sights and the feeling is so awesome! I like it that Skydive paradise doesn't squeeze us in a plane with lots of people at once. We went by 2s. The instructor is very nice and really do good safety precautions! I love the sights after we jumped out of... More

Myself and my girlfriend booked ourselves in to do tandem skydives with these guys quite far in advance after we compared prices and reviews on other companies, and we definitely made the right choice with these guys! We got free pick up from queenstown with roughly a 40 minute drive to glenorchy, the driver stopped at a nice location along... More

Recently I was lucky enough to do a 15,000 feet skydive with Skydive Paradise in Glenorchy! The drive out to their jump zone in Glenorchy is a spectacular drive, with a chance for a photo stop. Once out the jump zone, I felt very welcomed by the whole team who are a lot of fun while ensuring your safety is... More

I opted Paradise Skydive as I found glenorchy to be more scenic and I could enjoy the magnificient view. I went for 15,000 feet jump. The staff was very helpful and helped everyone in staying relaxed and cheerful which is very much needed to enjoy the dive to the fullest. The view from top is awesome and beyond any description.
