Top 5 reasons to skydive in Queenstown, New Zealand

Queenstown is the adventure capital of the world so there’s no better place to embrace your fears and skydive from 15,000ft.

1. Out of this world scenery

As you freefall over Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range you’ll be mind-blown. On a cloudless day you can even see all the way to West Coast of New Zealand, now that’s an experience you’ll never forget!

2. 15 minute scenic flight over Queenstown

There’s a lot more to skydiving than simply jumping out of plane, including a 15 minute flight to altitude. During the flight you’ll get a perfect view of the spectacular scenery of Queenstown and surrounding areas.

3. Feel the adrenaline rush

When you exit the plane you’ll free fall at speeds of up to 200km/h, it doesn’t get much more adrenaline pumping than that. You’ll be buzzing for days!


4. Your own personal photographer

How often can you say you had your own personal photographer? Your free fall photographer will jump with you to capture every moment of your skydive and you can then pick up your printed photo and USB video pack on the day  so you can relive and share your skydive experience.

5. Create lasting memories

Skydive with your best friends, family or new mate from the hostel and share the feelings of nervous excitement pre-jump, then feel the nerves turn into the sweet sense of achievement as you land. The post jump “high five” is a must.

NZONE Skydive are New Zealand's first Tandem Skydive company and have been operating out of Queenstown since 1990; having jumped over 250,000 customers so far. For more information, images and video check out:
