Skydive Wanaka - 9,000ft Tandem Skydive

Get ready for the thrill of a lifetime with New Zealand’s most spectacular, multi award winning high altitude skydive from 9,000ft!


  • An unforgettable tandem skydive over one of the world's most breathtaking scenery.
  • Reach terminal velocity at a speed of 200kph!!
  • A ridiculous amount of excitement and fun.

Jump in our custom built skydive plane as it takes you high up above absolutely stunning southern alpine scenery giving you the most amazing panoramic views of NZ’s highest mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers.

Once you’ve climbed to a height of 9,000ft the time arrives to leap from the plane with your highly qualified jumpmaster into pure air and experience an adrenaline rush like no other.

Prepare for heart-pumping exhilaration as you freefall, reaching terminal velocity at an eye watering speed of 200kph. After 25 seconds of freefall the chute opens soaring you smoothly over the beautiful scenery below, landing you safely and gently back at the drop zone.

Phenomenal... views & your "beautiful stranger"!

I'm terrified of heights and I have a nephew in the UK battling brain cancer, his journey inspired me to raise awareness of medulloblastoma cancer by facing my biggest fear.. And I was really sick with nerves before hand, yet the skydive wanaka team totally put me at ease with their professionalism and banter to reduce my nerves. My beautiful stranger was Dan.. he got me through the shaking, near hyper ventilation and sheer terror. And I still did it and I was so proud of facing my fears and achieving something I'd never even put on my bucket list. Thank you sky dive wanaka!! #fornate (UK justgiving.co.uk) NAMASTE
