My nephew and I each did a jump yesterday from 12000ft @ $339pp we also paid for a videographer @ $229pp. We found the front desk service friendly and helpful, our jumpers Rory and Simon were the bomb with both keeping us well informed throughout the process and having a wicked attitude, we felt super safe and had a great...

Let's be honest, I approached sky diving for the first time with a fair bit of trepidation. Fear, anxiety, certain death... But I need not have worried. Now there might not be anywhere more beautiful in the world to do your first sky dive. But is that the point?? All we are really worried about is what is it going... More

I had to book the dive because the weather was amazing! The scenery is spectacular as well. We had no problems booking a same day afternoon dive and getting picked up from our holiday park. Definitely a must-do bucket list item! Minor Gripes: 1) This is a luxury $$$ skydive. NZ is expensive and the pricing here seems definitely higher... More

This was my first ever skydive experience, and I was nervous, but everyone here put me at ease. My "stranger" was super nice, very experienced, and made for an exhilarating experience. Once we rolled out, I was all good and can't wait to do it again. There were 3 of us in our group and we did the 15,000-ft jump... More

This was my first skydive. What an experience! We did this the day after Roys hike because we could barely walk, so figured a passive activity of falling out of a plane would be perfect. My 'stranger' was Eugen or Geno and he was fantastic. He had over 25,000 jumps and was very comforting and reassuring that all safety checks... More

I was told Wanaka was the most prettiest to skydive. Even though I had to wait an hour or so due to my last minute booking and me getting there a little late Skydive Wanaka gave me what I wanted for my first skydive ever.
