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

Skydive Wanaka, one of the best experiences of my life. I was picked up from central Queenstown just outside NZONE Skydive. We were taken on the beautiful journey out to Wanaka (a must do drive of your stay,) our driver Will was very friendly and informative. When we got to the airfield we were welcomed by the efficient and helpful... More

Do it!!! Fantastic jump with a friendly sky diver. Staff were excellent. Making you feel comfortable on the ground and in the air. Safe landing! Didn't go for a photo/video option as couldn't justify the cost on honeymoon but they had good options! Only criticism was having to book a time and then waiting an hour before going up in... More

The experience is amazing. Everything happens so quickly but definitely worth it. They recommend you book in the morning in case there are weather delays. I did the 15,000ft (if you're only going to do it once why not do it from the top!), while everyone else on my flight did 12,000ft. It was crazy having everyone jump out of... More

It was an amazing experience which I would recommend to others. The views were great once got through the clouds, my tandem partner was good at giving advice (Chris. H) and the man making my video and taking pictures was funny and kept me laughing (Dylan). I was petrified about doing it but all the staff were very informative and... More

Embrace your fear and do it! The free falling experience is just amazing, I will definitely do it again! Spoiler alert, your face turns really ugly when free falling in the sky, haha...

Amazing skydive with incredible views! Staff were friendly and really put you at ease. The reason I haven't given this 5 out of 5 is because I paid about $200 for someone else to jump out and film me but they followed the wrong person most of the way so my video and photos were definitely not worth the $200...
