By far THE place to jump in NZ! The staff are incredible, super helpful and so accommodating it's unreal! The facilities are brilliant and the atmosphere is great! The jump masters are friendly and instantly fill you with confidence! We did the highest jump +/- 15k and the view is one of the very best you could imagine! Coast to... More

15,000 feet sunny day, 65 second free fall, before a calm gentle parachute float back to Earth. The view of lakes Wanaka and Hawea cannot be beaten from that height. If you only fall out of a plane once, do it with these guys!

I was having a hard time between this and n-zone skydive but wanaka was cheaper so I went with it and glad I did. Managed to time it right and get a perfect day even in the middle of winter and it was amazing. Staff are so friendly and my tandem buddy asked exactly the kind of ride I wanted... More

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I truly believe that Wanaka is the most beautiful location for a skydive. My brother and I were checked in really quickly, given a safety video, dressed in a suit and harnessed up, and before we knew it we were up in the plane!!! The views of Mt.Cook and the... More

Cant find one fault in any aspect of the operation no matter how critically i look. Great drive to Wanaka, minimal waiting time at the base, smiling faces across the desk, helpful operational staff and very professional setup. In terms of the jump itself felt really at ease with my instructor.The instructions given were very clear and to top it... More

I am very sorry that you believed a free gift coupon was actually a free skydive. When you arrived at the premises & present this coupon it was explained to you in detail. You were then given plenty of time to decided if you still wanted to continue with the jump. You chose to go ahead & you chose jump... More
