I stil can't believe up til now that I actually jumped out of the perfectly good plane at 15,000 feet strapped to a complete stranger, considering that I am really scared of heights! But GOSH everytime I reminisce about the whole experience, I'm so glad I did it. The freefall experience is just surreal! And the views...OMG...this is one the... More

I'd totally do it again in a heartbeat! The staff were amazing, very welcoming even over the phone. My tandem instructor was also awesome along with the personal camera flyer! Its pretty awesome to see the camera flyer somersaulting in the air, diving high and low trying to take the best photos for you. The staff really did a great... More

He was super enthusiastic about sharing... More

Great !! No words for it...but we did it. We did from 12,000 ft. If you really want to do it, keep t least 2 days in Wanaka as the weather is totally unpredictable. We went twice but the weather was not good. Finally were able to do in the 3rd time.

Just great! My second skydive, loved the first but this far surpassed it. Professional guides, really felt confident in them, reassuring on the flight up. Could do it again and again! Highly recommend. View was just spectacular.
