What a way to go. For me to celebrate my 65th birthday it was important to enjoy all on offer. They did not disappoint. Maybe a step to enter the plane would be helpful for older people.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your experience with us at Skydive Wanaka. Your comment regarding the steps is very unusual, as it is very hard to get into the plane without using the steps which we have and use for every flight. Please email us at info@skydivewanaka.com for further feedback. More

Congratulations to all at Skydive Wanaka, and with special mention to Robbie for looking after our 15yr old son on his first 12000 ft jump. Thoroughly organised, and efficient service from start to finish, yet allowing maximum fun and thrill of freefall to the backdrop of the wonderful mountains and lakes surrounding the area. A superb lifetime experience which no... More

Had a great skydive with the team which warranted a 5/5, but the only drawback to the whole experience hence the 3/5 overall rating, was being told that we can't use our own wrist mounted gopro during our dives - despite paying for a video package and wanting to use our own camera for a different angle. The idea was... More

I did a 15,000ft jump and it was unfathomably AWESOME!! It was my first jump and I could not have felt safer and been in better hands! If weather conditions (and funding) allows, the 15,000ft is the way to go because it seems to be over in a flash! I will definitely recommend jumping with these guys to anyone and... More

This was an amazing experience at Skydive Wanaka. Everyone was wonderful and special thanks to my tandem Boris who was friendly and made it unforgettable - great video work. This was my second skydive and it is hard to compare between them as both places I've been (Taupo and Wanaka) did a great job. Great views of the river. lakes... More

My boyfriend and I had never been skydiving before and we both agreed that if we were going to do it, it had to be somewhere spectacular. Skydive Wanaka was awesome. Great staff. I felt comfortable the whole time. Would definitely recommend this place!!
