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.
