I did my skydive at Wanaka on 21 Sep 2016. It was a very pleasant and memorable experience. Indeed, I've chosen the right place to do my first ever skydive. The crew was fantastic. My beautiful stranger (Rory) and cameraflyer (Rob) were very friendly and supportive. I didn't feel nervous having them around. The ground staffs were awesome too! From... More

There is 12,000ft and 15,000ft option. My husband and I opted for the 12,000ft due to the price differential with the higher one. You lose 15 more seconds of freefall, but I personally would but the extra money towards getting the pictures. This was an incredible experience. The scenic plane ride itself over Lake Wanaka was just stunning, the freefall... More

This is a very efficient and smoothly run operation, with friendly staff who give you a great feeling of being in safe hands. The packages are well structured and flexible enough for you to change your mind to suit your needs. The quality of the video and images were superb. Would recommend for anyone wanting to skydive.

Kudos to the instructors Peter and Boris for making this an amazing experience. We were well taken care of by not just the instructors but also the whole team who were extremely patient with us despite us coming in with a large group. It is definitely a once in a lifetime experience but I only just realize why not do... More

Skydive Wanaka has been one of the best experience in my life! Staff people are very friendly and help you to control your anxious. Views from the air plane are breathtaking (if you can go in a sunny day it will be perfect!) 100% recommended, you´ll really enjoy the experience

Amazing team! The front desk staff and the staff helping you dress up are really atentive and friendly. And both the stranger to whom you strap and the camera filming all the experience transmit you professionalism and happiness on each jump. Amazing experience! A must do in Wanaka!!

For my 25th anniversary I got to push my wife out of a plane. Paid for the full package: tandem jump with a separate photographer/videographer. Great safety precautions and practices. Your jump buddy had a camera on his/her wrist and the camera guy has two on his helmet. One takes a still every 1 or 2 seconds and the other... More
