On the 11th July I did a 15,000ft skydive. I jumped with Mac. Even though I have skydived before in Australia, Mac was really reassuring and made me feel totally relaxed about jumping out of a plane. He managed to point out all the different mountains and popular places to visit, as it was so clear. Cam was my driver... More

I went along for the ride to watch my husband skydive. Jax was our driver and ended up talking me into jumping too. Ollie was my instructor and he was so kind and made me feel very at ease. My husband and I had so much fun- we were so thrilled that we got to enjoy this experience together and... More

The experience was just amazing. No doubt I will go with Skydive Paradise again. I did a triple jump, with my JFern Bear, which is so cute. The guide name "Ollie" attached my teddy safe and sound. This made me feel safe and he will take good care of me during this whole experience. On our way to Glenorchy, there... More

I've just returned home from an amazing trip to Queenstown and hands down the single best thing about the trip was my sky dive with Skydive Paradise. From the drive out to Glenorchy with the lovely Jaks to the jump itself, it made for an absolutely epic adventure. Big shout out to all the staff (Andy, Chris, Jaks, Ollie!) who... More

The drive alone out to the small village of Glenorchy on the north side of lake Wakatipu is breathtaking on its own. You stop at the million dollar view then proceed onto the Glenorchy aerodrome. After safety briefs and putting on your equipment you get into a tiny plane which is awesome to fly in! Then you leap out the... More

The whole experience was well arranged, including the pickup from Queenstown, safety brief and preparation for the jump. They can accommodate two tandem divers in a flight. The ground staff and the diving staff are very friendly and informative. The location/dropzone is also awesome near the Wakatipu lake. Its a 45 minute drive from central Queenstown. The remoteness of location... More
