You can't pick a better place to do it, scenery just stunning!! Got picked up, early morning, shown the safety video, then arrived at the airport. Staff were brilliant, put at ease right from the start. You are weighed and processed before being kitted out in your jump gear, all the safety measures are followed, before being introduced to your... More

I did my first ever skydiving a few months ago and the staff at Skydive Wanaka was very friendly and helpful. My skydiving instructor made it all feel so relaxed and easy. And what's even more, the scenery in Wanaka is just crazy beautiful and it really matters since after the exhilarating freefall there will be plenty of time to... More

What an incredible experience for our honeymoon! The staff were so great and professional, and the skydive amazing with a beautiful view. The pictures and videos we got just a few time after the jump are a perfect memory from this experience. Do it, you won't regret it!

Absolutely awesome 👍🏿 I had previously done the Nevis swing and that was great (after I did it). However, after doing the skydive...WOW!!!! The staff were professional and also so easy to get on with. They helped allay any fears I had and there were loads. But the ground staff put me at ease and paired me up with a... More

We were skydiving for the first time so we were obviously quite nervous. But the tandem diver made it very easy for us so we really enjoyed the experience. Basically they make sure that you don't have too much time to think when it's your turn to jump from the plane. Before you know it you are enjoying the free... More
