A friend of ours was doing a skydive here, and asked if we wanted to join him. We'd never even considered doing a skydive before, but we decided to give it a go.
For days beforehand I was so nervous, but it is an absolutely unforgettable experience if you can pluck up the courage!
The booking process was easy, and we threw ourselves in at the deep end by booking the 15,000ft skydive. Me and my fiance booked separately to our friend, but we both specified in the booking that we would like to be on the same plane, if possible.
When we arrived on the day, there was just the 3 of us in our plane which was great (along with our tandem masters and camera flyers).
These guys are just incredible. They help you to feel so at ease (within reason)! The camera flyers are great too, and captured some fantastic footage of all of us.
Yes, doing a skydive is pretty scary. But if I can do it, anyone can. I was SO nervous but I'm so glad that I did it. We keep re-watching our videos over and over again, we can't believe that we actually DID IT!
If you're umming and ahhing about whether to do a skydive in NZ, we couldn't recommend Skydive Wanaka highly enough. Thank you so much to everyone for an amazing experience that we will never, ever forget.More
