What You Can Expect

Skydive Queenstown

Skydiving Queenstown

Start your Queenstown skydiving experience with a 20-minute drive from downtown to the drop zone, located at the base of the Remarkables mountain range. The location borders the shores of Lake Wakatipu and serves as an impressive scenic backdrop for your tandem skydive adventure. There’s hardly a better place to go skydiving in New Zealand!
On arrival, a professional jumpmaster provides a full safety briefing before you take the ultimate leap of faith into the sky. Don a provided jumpsuit and goggles in preparation for your Queenstown skydive, choosing to descend from 9,000, 12,000 or 15,000 feet (2,743, 3,658 or 4,572 meters) in elevation.
Then, board the small plane and check out the razor-sharp peaks of the Remarkables as the aircraft reaches optimum altitude. You’ll feel your adrenaline pumping as you free-fall for up to 65 seconds before your tandem instructor pulls the safety ripcord and you float effortlessly together through the air.
Your bravery is rewarded with an achievement certificate upon landing. If you’d like, order freefall photos and/or a video for bragging rights (available for purchase) before your transfer back to Queenstown.

This was amazing from top to bottom - the crew was awesome and the dive was incredible. They were so safe and so sweet to us. Trip of a lifetime indeed!

In 3 words: Best Experience Ever! I do prefer adventurous vacations, and always thought of skydiving as both appealing and terrifying! Once I scheduled the jump for myself and my daughter, I began having second thoughts out of sheer fear, which subsequently proved baseless. Everyone at NZone is professional and friendly. Clearly, they are all about safety first. We jumped from 15000 and would definitely do it again with NZone in the future. Two suggestions based upon our experience schedule the jump early in the day and at the beginning of the vacation, in case of changing weather conditions which may result in a reschedule or two, and definitely hire the photographer to record the event. Our photo books are an excellent keepsake of this incredible experience. Finally, my advice to anyone who is considering a jump, just do it with NZone!

My boyfriend ended up proposing during our skydive, so of course it was amazing!!! Aside from the proposal though, the skydiving itself was one of the best experiences of my life. The view as you jump is unlike any other. I can't think of a more beautiful place you could skydive. In addition, the staff at NZONE were wonderful. Due to weather we had to reschedule our original jump. They went out of their way to accommodate us and were able to squeeze us in later in the day. They helped my boyfriend (now fiance) coordinate everything for the proposal, and even gave us the DVD of the proposal for free! If you're going to jump out of a plane, Queenstown is the place to do it!

It was great.The only thing I would suggest is that they tell people ahead of time to take a seasick pill that morning before the jump. It probably would have helped me with the turns after the chute was pulled. The whole group were very professional in all aspects. I am really glad I got the pictures and video.

I did it. Considering my being afraid of heights. I am 64 and
all my friends and co-workers thought I was nuts to do it.
All was organized so perfectly it was real fun. To those who
are not sure, there was no fear and you do not have to do
anything yourself. Super
instructor will be in control
