The staff were friendly and put us at ease since it was our first skydive experience. The staff were professional and through their safety briefing, made us all feel safe and less tensed. Would have loved it, if the dive master knew the area better and could have pointed out places when we were up in the plane and in... More

This was, hands down, the best experience I had while I was in Queenstown this past October, and one of the best experiences in my life so far. I was a first time skydiver and was admittedly a bit scared before the dive - Jags, who checked us in on-site, was so incredibly welcoming and hilarious that my nervous "Do... More

Am glad we went with Skydive Paradise for our 1st ever skydiving experience. The view and hospitality throughout made it all the more memorable. Did our research and everyone raved about the picturesque scenery that you'll get wow-ed with at Glenorchy; Definitely no regrets that we chose them over others. The guys were awesome - really nice, friendly blokes who... More

Hi, This skydive experience I shall take to my grave. It was the most awesome dive over the Lord of the Rings mountains in Glenorchy with mount cook in the distant horizon. Remeber to jump from 15000 feet. Also it has 5 seconds of extra free fall compared to others. If you are lucky you will dive with Benedict Cumberbatch's... More

This was my second jump so I didn't add on the video/picture package before we got to the jumpsite. Once there, it was an easy sale and so glad I did it. The views are stunning and the capture of those memories were well worth the price! The staff were funny, but professional and safety conscious too. It was a... More

My son James and I did the 15,000 foot jump today.. What a view.. What a Buzz. Cameron, Mac and the team at Skydive Paradise were magnificent. A great example of guys who are both professional and love their jobs. We had perfect weather and a perfect experience.. Go for it..

We booked a skydive for my brother-in-law on a beautiful sunny Saturday. We had our own car to get from Queenstown to Glenorchy where the skydives occur, approximately an hour drive. The trip had SPECTACULAR views of the lake and mountains, making the location truly special. But- there's no real airport for Paradise Skydive, just a grassy area they use... More

Hi Raelene, The views as your drive out to our dropzone really are second to none and we were delighted to read that you were pleased with the professionalism of our staff. We are very privileged to be able to operate out of the Glenorchy Aerodrome as it’s located on D.O.C land making it a unique and spectacular environment for... More
