Chantelle B – 2020

Definitely do it!

My partner and I had a 12,000ft Skydive Experience with Skydive Wanaka and it was the most incredible experience of my life! My partner was super nervous (loosing sleep and panicking the whole week prior, I myself was so excited and pumped for it) the staff were so kind and supportive, the kindest people you will meet! The whole experience could not have been better and the views were absolutely incredible!! My partner and I trusted our tandem masters completely and I dont think my partner could have done it if the staff weren’t as awesome and helpful as they are. If you are considering a jump with Skydive Wanaka, DEFINITELY do it!!

This was the most amazing experience! I am so scared of heights, but my tandem was so kind and supportive. Definitely do it again. On such an adrenaline high!! 100%
Emma -2020
100% recommend Wanaka Skydive! Booked with a group of friends and right from the start we all felt welcomed, very nice and energetic staff and informative safety briefing video. Angus was an awesome tandem partner and I felt safe in his capable hands jumping out of a plane! We done the 12,000ft but wish we went higher and done the 15,000ft. Very prompt with sending photos/ videos after the skydive too. Must do when in Wanaka!

Best views, awesome experience!

I have done quite a few skydives around Australia and NZ before but this was my favourite one by far! The staff were super friendly when we checked in and everything was easy and smooth without annoying wait periods. The jumpsuits were awesome as they were red/orange and looked super cool! ๐Ÿ™‚
I mean you can’t really beat this location – mountains, stunning lakes and on a clear day like ours even Mt Cook in the background, absolutely mindblowing and I’d highly recommend it to anybody considering a skydive in NZ ๐Ÿ™‚

A Family Skydive

Deeply impressed by the streamlined preparation for the skydive, the friendly and encouraging crew, the professional yet personal dive masters and the beautiful location of the jump. Would highly recommend – felt completely safe at every step.


Sumit M – 2019

One of the best highs of my life

I was so scared when I arrived at the skydive centre but the pep talks given by my instructor “kerk” really alleviated all my fears. The best part of the dive was the free fall and thank God we took 12000 feet dive as it gave us the opportunity to see the so beautiful scenery all around us. With such nice weather and no delays I think you guys are the best centre for skydiving. And I would definitely recommend kerk to be your instructor…. thanks a lot guys

15000ft Tandem Skydive in Wanaka

A one in a lifetime experience (although I want to do it more!), Skydive Wanaka really did a great job making everyone feel relaxed for the dive. My beautiful stranger, Yonathan (hi there) was such a champ, making my husband and I laugh throughout the plane ride (we were the last 2 to jump, the rest did 12,000ft). There was no fear nor anxiety at all, we felt we were in safe hands. Just book now and do it already!


Fernanda – 2018

The best view and the best staff! I loved it!

It was one of the best experience I`d ever been in my life. The staff are very kind, my “beautiful stranger” (instructor) Emma and the photographer were amazing!!! I felt very secure and could enjoy the stunning view! I highly recommend.
