From the driver who brought us to the sky diving drop zone in Glenorchy , the front office manager who gave us some introduction, photoexpert and of course the skydive master Ollie, it was an incredible experience, which could not be topped :-) with the remarkable landscape and lake view. The team is very helpful, knowkedgable and simple fantastic.

The instructors are nice and took good care of me. He kept telling you things and checking if you are ok during the journey. He loosened my helmet once the parachute opened so that I feel much more comfortable. I was pretty scared of jumping out of the plane, but it happened so smoothly (like once I finished my banana...

The instructors are very cool. They made us glide an extra round around the place on request. The view during the dive and glide is breathtaking. The staff is also very helping.

I booked a skydive trip via their business partner YHA. The trip was cancelled due to poor weather which was reasonable, as safety was obviously paramount. I paid cash and when requesting my refund YHA said they did not have enough cash for me, and could only refund via card. I took cash out especially to avoid the 3% foreign... More

Ollie was my instructor and he was great, really good fun but made sure I felt safe. The video is excellent and I have over 300 photos.

I've experienced it myself. And you should definitely do the same. Well-organized and safe trip up to 18'000 ft. and back to mother Earth. Awesome.

Hi Thesammy, we can tell you're over the moon! and it makes us keep going, thank you so much! but you didn't jump from 18,000ft :) our highest jump is 15,000ft. You have 2 possible scenarios, you either jump with another company or it's a typo... Either or, Skydive Paradise is glad you've had a great time skydiving and that's... More
