If you got your bottom all the way to New Zealand, you just as well may jump from a plane or something... being in the world's capital of extreme sports. It was my first jump, and I chose to do it in Wanaka Skydive. There isn't a shortage of location for skydiving in NZ, but the one in Wanaka is... More

Few people do suffer from motion sickness and that is why we ask you to inform your Tandem Master about this, then they won't do as many spins under the parachute. We are glad that you got an amazing video and conquered your fears! More

Was impressed with the manner in which they have managed the facility. Very professional and treat you with a huge smile and open arms. The companion divers and photo graphemes are friendly.
