Strap yourself to a beautiful stranger and leap from a perfectly good aircraft with Skydive Wanaka - New Zealand's, most spectacular, multi-award winning, high altitude tandem skydive!

From the moment you walk through the doors at Skydive Wanaka your unforgettable experience begins. The staff and facilities are world class and we plan to make your experience with us one you will be talking about for years to come. Purchase one of our HD video or photo packages and share your memories with friends and family.

Following a full safety briefing (in either English or Mandarin) you will be given your stunning red jumpsuit, strapped into your harness and introduced to your tandem master a.k.a beautiful stranger. From onboard our big orange plane your incredible scenic flight to altitude captures 360 degree views of New Zealand’s highest mountains, including Mount Cook and Mount Aspiring, famous glaciers and crystal clear lakes and rivers. Once you reach your chosen altitude of 12,000 or 15,000 feet it’s time to leap…and experience the pure adrenalin rush of freefalling at 200kph above the stunning Central Otago landscape with the best in New Zealand. After 45 – 60 seconds of freefall, catch your breath and enjoy the smooth flight under canopy safely back down to the dropzone.

Professional and friendly staff, fun for the whole family, spectators welcome. Free Wi-Fi and parking. Refreshments and souvenirs available.

Really professional, stunning scenery with a fantastic view, of course, great staff. Expensive to not get at least one photo included - almost $200 extra for footage, in my opinion, taking advantage. In Argentina, some footage was included.

Amazing experience. Incredible views. Alex was a great instructor. Make sure you watch the welcome safety video. I had no instructions until I was already on the plane.

Skydiving is a must-do experience and Wanaka is a great place to do it. Minor gripes with the service, price, and videowork though. The NZ deals pass helped a little.

Beautiful lakes around, which you can see even better when you jump out of the plane.

Amazing experience - the team were great - made it really personal. Not cheap, but few once-in-a-lifetime experiences are. Make sure you have good weather to jump and book ahead - they get very busy.

It's good to have free shuttle service from Queenstown to Wanaka, have another option of skydiving when you stay at Queenstown.

Less than 10 because of mass processing. The staff were very friendly and the instructors made lots of jokes. We can really recommend it!
