From NZ$359 per person

Skydive Wanaka

Welcome to Skydive Wanaka – New Zealand’s most spectacular, multi award winning, high altitude tandem Skydive.


  • An awe-inspiring scenic flight to your chosen altitude in the brand new turbine aircraft. Capture NZ’s highest snow capped peaks including Aoraki/Mt Cook and Tititea/Mt Aspiring. Southern Alps tower above the World Heritage Mt Aspiring National Park where glaciers feed forested river valleys and glistening lakes.
  • An exhilarating freefall @ 200kph from:
    • 12,000 feet (3650m) – 45 seconds free fall
    • 15,000 feet (4575m) – 60 seconds freefall
  • A magical parachute ride; soaring above the most inspiring and dramatic alpine scenery, before landing safely back at our drop zone at Wanaka Airport.
  • We believe in sensation. That it is better to taste the air than it is simply to breathe it, to feel the rush than to only imagine it.

Please Bring:

  • Shoes that will withstand terminal velocity and a big smile suitable for use at high speed!
  • Please note your weight must not exceed 100kgs/15.5 stone/220lbs/
