See Queenstown like never before as you take the ultimate leap of faith as you tandem skydive. Feel your adrenaline surge as you reach altitude and prepare to jump, before free-falling at terminal velocity reaching speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour.
  • Round-trip transportation from central Queenstown to the drop zone 
  • Full safety briefing and orientation with a professional jump-master 
  • Skydive tandem with an instructor for the utmost in safety and peace of mind
  • All safety equipment included
What to Expect
Begin your customizable skydive adventure with pickup from a designated meeting point in downtown Queenstown in a comfortable tour bus. Relax and enjoy the scenery as you travel about 20 minutes to the drop zone in the foothills of the Remarkables. Meet the professional jumpmaster upon arrival and get a safety briefing and orientation so you know exactly what to expect. Suit up in goggles and a jumpsuit, then board the plane and head up to your chosen jump height. Safely strapped to your instructor in a tandem position, jump and free-fall for around a minute over the shores of Lake Wakatipu and the sharp peaks of the Remarkables before he or she pulls the ripcord and you float gently down to land, taking in the amazing scenery on the way down. Return to Queenstown for drop-off with a certificate of achievement and opt to purchase free-fall photos and video to remember your experience.

Amazing first time jump for all 3 of us. We purchased a 9000 ft jump with the basic video and photo package. The videos and photos came out very good. Very happy with our choice!

You don’t land on your feet, you land sitting on your butt. The landing itself is very smooth and as long as you follow the instructions given by the dive master, there’s no potential danger for you to get hurt.
