I was particularly reluctant to do a skydive but was finally persuaded by my partner. Skydive Wanaka have a very professional set-up. The experience was made slightly less terrifying knowing I was in safe hands. My partner had a video taken by a second Skydive Wanaka skydiver and although expensive for this option was very happy with the results. Thanks... More

We originally plan to skydive in queenstown but changed to wanaka ad-hoc based on rain weather forecast in qst and nice weather in wanaka. I only contacted the company the morning when we drive from Hokitika to wanaka. We checked the availability and just request reserve slots for 3pm same day by email without any credit card deposits. We arrived... More

I originally booked our skydive with Nzone in town. The first time I went out the dive and it got cancelled as we got there, even though it was a beautiful day, but I guess it was "because of the wind". Obviously I understand that safety comes first but with Nzone, it just felt like they were trying to get... More

I completed a skydive this morning. The day started out fine with the briefing and the paperwork. I was told I would have about 30 minutes to wait after this. It all started unravelling when as five customers were getting on the plane, someone finally realised that I hadn't been called (after being told ten minutes before that I would... More

What a place to sky dive! Wanaka is stunning from the ground but absolutely INCREDIBLE from 15,000ft! Wow! I did my second skydive here - it was very different to my first which was in a much smaller plane and a much smaller business. These differences did mean than the skydive was much less personal as they have many people... More

3rd time lucky, we originally booked our skydive with Nzone in town.
