Looking for an adrenaline rush while visiting Otago? Then you've come to the right place! Not only will a tandem skydive in Wanaka provide you with the ultimate thrill, but you will also be able to fully appreciate the unique landscape of the Southern Alps. Falling from 9,000ft above the ground, Lord of the Rings fans might recognise this backdrop from Gandalf's flight on the back of the great eagle Gwaihir. But don't worry if you've not seen the movies. All you need to know is that this is one of the best places in New Zealand, and even the world, to go skydiving. So book your tandem skydive in Wanaka with complimentary transfer from Queenstown and look forward to an adventure of a lifetime!

- Meeting and preparation:
We offer a free shuttle bus service from Queenstown to Wanaka and back that runs twice a day. Pick-up is at 07:30 and at 1:00pm from the NZONE Skydive Office at 35 Shotover Street in Queenstown. The drive to our Wanaka dropzone takes approximately 1.5h. We kindly ask you to give us a call 30 minutes before the bus' departure 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 10-minute scenic flight up to your jump altitude.
- Flight and jump:
When the plane has reached the jump altitude of 9,000ft, you'll be strapped to your tandem master, the door will open and the two of you will leap into your adventure. After 25 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 it's towering 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 in Queenstown. Departures are at 11:30 am and at 05:30pm.
