“AMAZING!”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

The team at Skydive Lake Wanaka put me at ease and were so reassuring and friendly every step of the way. I can't think of a better setting to do it in either.

“relaxed yet very professional yet not cruel commercial”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

welcoming, well guided to the options without any sales pressure, clearly laid out options, and all just cruises along smoothly - just the souvenir t-shirt designs could be a little bit more imaginative, more choices but that is not a big issue.

“Sweet As”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

We did the jumps in early Feb on a crisp, clear day over Wanaka. Wonderful view of mountains, lakes and surroundings now etched forever in my mind.
It was a surreal experience yet easily accomplished with a great team over at Skydive Wanaka.
My instructor was Barni and cameraman Boris, whacky bunch but I was made to feel very safe.
So if you wanna have the ultimate thrill in NZ, then stop by here.
Had some prob with my jump photos, but a big appreciation goes to Jools who sat through Valentines evening sorting them out. Great job Jools!!

“Skydiving with a stranger”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

If you are planning to Skydive then "Sydive Wanaka" is a good company to go with. Extremely friendly staff. Gabbo the Skydive instructor was professional and the whole experience was fantastic. Chose the 12,000 ft skydive and throughout the adventure there was a great feeling of security. Great skydive with the stranger!
