One of the best things I have ever done! My skydive instructor Barney, made me feel very safe the whole time and was very reassuring. The instructors distract the customers on the way up in the plane by pointing out the amazing scenery and also on the floating down part of the skydive, so you don't miss a thing. Very... More

Had the most amazing experience with Skydive Wanaka, all the staff were great, my tandem master made me feel super safe and the views out of the plane were incredible - we could see all the way to Mount Cook! They also have a cool little shop with really nice t-shirts and things for purchase - recommend to everyone!

Thank you so much crew at Lake Wanaka! We were hoping to jump at Franz Josef however weather would not permit so without hesitation the team at Lake Wanaka took us on, slight confusion with our vouchers being transferred however the staff quickly sorted this out for us. ( no fault of theirs) I work in the tourism industry and... More

We had such a great experience with the crew at Skydive Wanaka. They were a passionate and professional team that made us feel as comfortable as possible given we were about to jump out of a plan. And the views of the lakes, glaciers, mountains and towns were incredible. I could not recommend more.

The most amazing experience in NZ. Surpisingly, not even for a minute was i scared. Conveniently located, very professionally run yet the whole staff is so warm and friendly. Everything is so well organized. They don't rush you into anything and you always have more than enough time to soak in the experience, right from sitting on the bean bags... More

I was totally terrified of jumping out of a plane, but thought I would regret if I didn't do in NZ. I convinced my husband to go with me even though he'd already been and he agreed. They originally told us we'd be on separate planes, but when I said I don't think I wanted to do it anymore because... More

This is a very professional outfit. I booked late online the night before, but was able to get a jump the next morning. The staff were exceptionally polite, well organised and fun. Everything is explained very well, and the whole process is well organised so you don't have to worry about where to put your bag etc. The instructor I... More

My best experience in newzealand so far. The ground staff was very helpful and nice. They were chatting with us till we got on the plane; I think it was to avoid doubts or fears. My wife and I went for the complete package at 15,000 ft. My wifes pics/videos were better but you cant really complain because things might... More
