Your New Zealand skydive experience commences with a briefing inside your very own cabin of adventure! The video will tell you what you’ve let yourself in for, and will also explain the camera options available for purchase. Once you’ve checked in, meet your skydiving instructor - also known as your BEAUTIFUL STRANGER! Your instructor has many thousands of skydives under his belt and is ready to ensure you have the best skydive in New Zealand.
Take to the skies in a Cessna Caravan, offering a comfortable, quick flight to altitude and maximum opportunity to take in the jaw-dropping views on the way up to your chosen skydive altitude. The flight to altitude takes 10 to 15 minutes, during which you can enjoy unrivalled and uninterrupted views of Wanaka’s world-renowned lakes and mountains, the Upper Clutha river, and, on a clear day, Mount Cook.
Move toward the plane’s now-open door, securely harnessed to your highly-qualified tandem skydiving instructor. Pause on the edge and then...SENSORY OVERLOAD! You’re flying through the air at 200km/h! You’re not falling – you’re flying, and the view is truly INCREDIBLE. Your adrenaline is flowing as your senses try to process the intensity of the experience.
Shortly after, your parachute activates. You enjoy the view as you float – exhilarated – toward the ground. Enjoy the best of skydive Wanaka!
