  • Skydive from 9,000ft above Wanaka
  • Freefalling at speeds of up to 200km/h
  • Incredible views of one of the most beautiful places on earth

Wanaka offers some of New Zealand’s most beautiful scenery and picturesque landscapes, so why not strap yourself to a beautiful stranger and leap from a perfectly good aircraft?! Experience the thrill of freefall from up to 15,000ft and reach speeds of 200kphs - what a rush!

What's Included?

  • Tandem skydive
  • Full safety briefing and equipment
  • Professional tandem jump master
  • Transfers from Wanaka (or Queenstown, subject to availability)

Meet your jump master at check in and get geared up for your tandem skydive with your new favourite hero!

Enjoy an incredible 20 minute scenic flight to altitude; as you fly over the Southern Alps, your instructor will point out Mt Cook, Mt Aspiring, the Southern Alps, up to 6 lakes and the Clutha River. At altitude the door of the plane will open and this is where the fun begins.

"Freefalling feels like flying" so make sure you keep your eyes open, and capture your thrilling moments whilst reaching speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour. After up to 60 seconds your parachute will open and you will get the chance to take in the views as you gently fly back down to the landing area.
