As the "birthplace' of Tandem skydiving in New Zealand - alongside its reputation as the Adventure Capital of the World - Queenstown serves as the ideal destination for our dropzone - located at the base of the famously majestic Remarkables mountain range, surrounded by a working sheep farm, you won't find a similar jumping destination in the world!

All of the latest, safest and most state-of-the-art equipment is incorporated to ensure the fear factor is only as high as it needs be - and our impeccable safety record speaks for itself! Book today, face the challenge and walk away with the sense of accomplishment that only skydiving can provide.

In saying this, freefall truely is an indescribable sensation and has to be experienced to understand wholly.

Safety’s the top priority for us at NZONE Skydive. We use industry leading skydiving systems and the latest in internationally recognised safety practices. We operate under the strict authority the of NZ Civil Aviation Authority and also the New Zealand Parachute Industry Association. All our Tandem Masters have jumped over 1,000 times, some have even jumped over 24,000 times! All parachutes are fitted with reserve chutes and automatic opening devices (AAD). AAD stands for “Automatic Activation Device”. It’s an on-board computer that automatically activates an emergency parachute in the unlikely event its needed.

When is the best time to go skydiving?

Skydiving is a very weather dependent adventure activity; we always recommend the best time to go skydiving is at the start of your trip. This allows the opportunity for movement and avoidance of disappointment if your original booking is unable to go ahead due to weather. In terms of the time of day, mornings are always a great time to see Queenstown from above.

Do you allow spectators?

Provided we have enough space in our buses, we can take spectators for free. This won't be guaranteed and only available at the time of the trip. They are welcome to drive themselves to watch and we can provide directions. This is limited to one spectator per customer and we cannot allow spectators on the last trip of the day.

Can I take my camera on the plane with me?

Unfortunately, personal cameras and Go Pro's are prohibited from being on board the aircraft due to safety and insurance reasons. All of our equipment has to be checked properly due to the extreme nature of skydiving. However, you can take photos on the ground while getting ready and we do offer a professional skydive photographer that is able to jump with you and take photos/video during your skydive.

Can I drive to the Queenstown drop zone myself?

Yes you can, but you will still need to check in at the Nzone Skydive Centre for the briefing and then they will give you directions.

Do you offer insurance?

Unfortunately, we do not offer life insurance, although you are covered for medical treatment while in New Zealand under the Accident Compensation Commission. However, some companies will insure you to tandem skydive and you need to check this with your travel insurance company directly.

Can I jump with an injury or medical problem?

If you are unsure if an existing medical condition or injury will affect your skydive, please consult with your doctor for advice. We are unable to advise on medical issues.
