Jump right into Middle Earth with your tandem skydive in Wanaka! Treat yourself to a heart-stopping free-fall experience from 12,000ft above the ground and feel free as a bird for 45 seconds. Hardcore fans of the Lord of the Rings movies might recognise the Southern Alps around Wanaka as being the Misty Mountains surrounding Rivendell, while those who don't have a clue about Lord of the Rings will simply enjoy the scenic beauty of New Zealand's South Island. So don't wait and book your tandem skydive in Wanaka now.

- Meeting and preparation:
We offer a free shuttle bus service from the Wanaka i-SITE that runs hourly. Pick-up is 15 minutes before the booked start time. We kindly ask you to give us a call 30 minutes before your start time to confirm that we're running on time and to make sure the weather conditions allow for skydiving. At our dropzone, you will meet your tandem master who will brief you and help you get fitted in your jumpsuit and harness. You will also receive a hat, a pair of goggles and some gloves so that you're fully equipped for your skydive. Once you're ready, you will board the plane and take off for your 12-minute scenic flight up to your jump altitude.
- Flight and jump:
When the plane has reached the jump altitude of 12,000ft, you'll be strapped to your tandem master, the door will open and the two of you will leap into your adventure. After 45 seconds of free falling, during which you'll be high on adrenaline, your tandem master will deploy the parachute, thereby breaking your fall, and you'll spend another 4 to 5 minutes gliding gently towards the ground. Throughout the entire experience, you'll be able to enjoy fantastic views of the Otago region with its majestic mountains and deep blue lakes.
- Landing and return:
After landing safely at our dropzone, our shuttle bus will take you back to the initial pick-up location at the Wanaka i-SITE in the town centre.
