We did the 12000ft jump as we were first time skydivers. Couldn't believe it was such a cool thing to do. The ground staff was awesome too! They looked after our little seven year old boy and kept him entertained with snooker and other kids games while we had the best adventure of our lives! Our tandem instructors were pretty... More

Wanaka skydive is THE place you wanna go to, if you want a adrenalin packed day, but still feel safe all the way. I did the highest skydive they had and got it filmed by another guy… It’s not the cheapest adventure you can buy, but until this day, it’s still the most fun I’ve ever done! VERY RECOMMENDABLE!

I did the 15,000 feet skydive with my friends. We called before setting off in the morning to verify the weather was a go. We had terrific weather and we could even see Mt Cook aboard the plane. We were provided jumpsuits, goggles, headgear, gloves and oxygen mask. There isn't a secure locker to deposit your items (lockers are available... More

Last minute decision and was terrified! Staff was great! My tandem jumper was calm and really helped me relax. Couldn't have asked for a better first skydive experience!

I am so happy I went with Wanaka skydive to do my first ever skydive. Every single member of staff was super nice from, Will, who collected me from my hostel, to Chris, who jumped out of a plane with me. All the staff made it a much calmer experience than I expected it to be. Thanks everyone who works... More

We jumped with Skydive Wanaka on a stellar early morning, it was simply the best sunrise of our lives. Between the fiery pink clouds and the adrenaline rush, we had a hard time comprehending what was happening to us, so many emotions! Thanks again the the whole team for this one in a lifetime experience!

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
