    Today I did the skydive in Glenorchy. The whole experience was fantastic. All the staff were super friendly and professional. My guide who I jumped with, Olly, was great! He had me laughing the whole time, as well as pointing out Mt Cook, Mt Earnslaw and lots more. He was super

    Really disappointed. Booked a skydive which got cancelled due to weather. This is no problem as it's clearly not their fault. However they do not communicate this to you until you are at the check in desk. I got rescheduled twice that morning and both times arrived at the desk,

    Kia ora Joe! We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t get to jump with us in beautiful Glenorchy, and that our communication left you feeling less than impressed. We know how frustrating it can be when our operations are cancelled or on hold. While our Alpine environment is breathtaking, it does make for changeable conditions, and our safety officer is constantly monitoring the weather. We do ask that our guests call us 30minutes before their trip time to check our operational status as we have found this to be the most reliable way to provide up to date information for our trips; however we are always looking to improve our customer service and will use your valuable feedback when considering new ways to communicate. Usually, our $179 Handicam photos and video are ready for collection just 15minutes after landing. On rare occasions we may ask guests to collect at a later time, or for those who have a tight schedule we are happy to arrange collection from our Queenstown store at a later time. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We hope you are able to achieve your skydiving dream soon!

    We had booked a tandem dive with Southern Alps. However as we reached Queenstown, we realized that the weather on the day we had booked the dive wasn’t going to be good. Kevin from Southern Alps/NZone was very helpful is assisting us with changes to not just the dive appointment

    I was super scared to go skydiving, but the day before we went to the office in Queenstown to talk to some of the stadf and ask all the questions we still had. They were extremely friendly and were able to answer all of our safety questions. The next day we were very nervous but
