Me and my wife did a skydive yesterday with Paradise, and we loved it! It was our first time, and we were well looked after. As well as the dive you get to see the views in Glenorchy, and we were lucky to choose a day with blue skies and sunshine. We dived with Mac and Olly; both great guys.... More

From start to finish, the staff is first class. Things couldn't have run any smoother from signing up, to pick up/ drop off, quick tutorial at Glenorchy, getting gear on etc. This is likely the one and only time I will ever say this...PAY UP for the PICTURES & VIDEO!! I can't believe how many pictures they gave me......75% of... More

Done the skydive yesterday was very nervous when I first booked but the closer I got the less nervous I was and I owe this to the great staff. The guy I done mine with totally put me at ease and I felt 100% safe. Very worthwhile doing would recommend anyone to do it. Scenery is outstanding.

As a lucky local to these parts, I have tried to skydive a few times with Skydive Paradise. I was lucky enough to get to do it on an absolute pearler of a day. Fresh snow, blue skies and smiles all round. Olly was the lucky tandem master to be strapped on. Great banter from start to finish. Fi and... More

My husband and I did this on our honeymoon, and we weren't disappointed. Admittedly, the price is higher than most skydiving experiences in other countries, but Glenorchy's views are worth every penny. Also, the staff are all nice and cheerful. Special thanks to Laura our driver and Mauro my tandem :)

I never thought I would be one to skydive but after hearing such incredible things I decided to challenge myself . This company made the whole experience incredible ! From the bus ride to the second you land you feel looked after, pumped and well taken care of. The view is ridiculous and the team are super amazing ! Words... More

We chose Paradise over Nzone because it felt like an operator which was a bit smaller and more personal and less mass production. And we were not disappointed! Very nice small airfield with lovely people. And stunning views during the dive of course.

I was lucky enough to join Skydive Paradise for a 15000ft Jump in their beautiful drop zone in Glenorchy! Wow it was my 3rd skydive but topped the rest. The company itself are great, the staff are so friendly and very professional. It was a 45minute drive to the drop zone but felt very short due to the very informative... More

I'd recommend this to anybody who was thinking about it. Absolutely incredible experience, there aren't words to describe it. You really couldn't ask for a more perfect place to skydive! Definitely go with the pictures/video… I still get chills every time I look at mine! If I'm ever back in Queenstown (and I sure hope I am) then I would... More

Booked my very first skydive at my Queenstown hostel the day before the jump. Scheduling was easy and flexible. Bruce came to pick me up directly from the hostel and was prompt and professional. Excellent drive out to Glenorchy with the other two jumpers where we met the rest of the staff at the airfield. Everyone was friendly and put... More
