The experience is phenomenal! Skydiving itself is a pretty "standard" sport that is found worldwide but what stands out here for SkyDive Wanaka is two things: professionalism and the natural surrounding beauty of the Wanaka skydiving area. From the onset, you can tell the team takes safety as a huge priority and the ground and main tandem guy check, double... More

Very professional operation, despite a small glitch at the pickup. I was told 6:45am initially, then was changed to 7:15, but when I went down at 7:15, nobody was there. At 7:25 I was able to call though, and a van came to pick me up. I was on a tight schedule because my bus was leaving town at 1,... More

Obviously skydiving is an insane awesome experience. The views are unimaginable! Beautiful! My skydiving "captain" was Jack. Awesome effort in pointing out views of interest on the way up... and down! ;) The office staff are 2 star for me. Not polite and seemed annoyed with guests for just being there. Traveling solo, I decided to do in Wanaka while... More

The reason I chose skydive wanaka was the location, I heard it was beautiful from the sky (more so than Queenstown ) I was glad I chose wanaka although haven't tried the other locations but it was beautiful and well worth it. So the main priority (for me at least) when skydiving is safety. I felt safe and confident the... More

Did the 15.000 ft jump and was really nervous, but felt secure in the company of my tandem partner Lois, who was relaxed and funny. I'm totally happy, that I did the skydive at Wanaka with its stunning landscape and would definitly recommend it!!! Amazing experience and so much fun!

Due to bad weather my friend and I were almost unable to do our jump but the staff were very accommodating, we were booked for 11am but had to push it back till 2pm when the sun finally came out. Luckily we were allowed to do it! I did the 12000ft jump, I wasn't a huge fan of the free... More
