Activity description

The highlight of your New Zealand experience must be a skydive in Wanaka! Scratch this off your bucket list and jump from over 15,000 ft!

The experience starts with a welcome from the Skydive Wanaka crew, as they introduce you to their drop zone and a video will brief you on the crazy activity you're about to do! After the video, you'll check-in and go through all the paperwork. 

Once everything is sorted out, you'll meet "your beautiful stranger" aka your tandem skydive instructor! He'll be your partner in crime through the experience. You can relax, he or she has performed thousands of skydives, so you're in good hands and he'll make sure you have the best skydive! 

After getting into your jumpsuit you'll board Skydive Wanaka's orange and white Cessna, a plane is designed specifically for skydiving. From there you will be taken on a 20 min flight over the breathtaking landscapes of Wanaka, Upper Clutha river, and, on a clear day, Mount Cook.

The moment of truth will arrive and when the light signals go, the door will open. Your instructor will position you at the edge and before you realize it, you'll be freefalling at 200 km./h. The feeling is incomparable, it's like floating on an air cushion! Make sure to smile for the camera, depending on the package you choose, your instructor or your cameraman will film the whole dive!

After 60 seconds of freefall, the parachute will open, and then you'll gently glide towards land. Catch your breath and enjoy the view, very few people get to experience this. Minutes later, you'll gently land on a green grass field.

First skydive for hubby and I Was such a thrill, only downfall, for me personally, I wish they talked and gone over a little more training prior to the skydive like breathing techniques etc. As I felt like it took my breath away when free falling and went into panic mode but came right once the parachute went up and was able to enjoy the views etc. Overall, great experience

Excellent Experience
