Queenstown Skydive

Expect sensory overload as your mind/body/soul fight against every natural self preservatory urge. It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft into thin air.

It takes courage! Harnessed by space age materials to an experienced qualified Jumpmaster, Queenstown is the birthplace of Tandem Skydiving in New Zealand.

Also known as the 'Adventure Capital of the World', Queenstown is the premium place to 'Jump out of a perfectly good Aeroplane'!

The flight to altitude will take you high above the Wakatipu basin, where you will have a birds eye view of our dramatic mountains and lakes.

You step out that aircraft door and for some 60 seconds you plummet towards the ground at 200kph, Terminal Velocity. The Jumpmaster will deploy the reinforced tandem canopy controlling your entire skydive.

Choose to skydive from any of the following altitudes and freefall at Terminal Velocity 200kph:

  • 15,000ft - 60 seconds freefall
  • 12,000ft - 45 seconds freefall
  • 9,000ft - 25 seconds freefall

Experience Includes

  • Skydive in Queenstown the adventure capital of the world
  • Achievement certificate upon completion of skydive
  • Choice of 9,000ft, 12,000ft or 15,000ft skydive jump
