The location was absolutely stunning, well worth waiting to be in NZ for! Would wholly recommend the company, they initially wanted to split me and my partner up as only 3 people can go in a plane and we had a family of 3 and three couples, but they were accommodating and let us fly together- which I would expect...

My wife and I had a fantastic experience skydiving in one of the most beautiful places in the world! The staff were very friendly and made us feel very safe the whole time. They were very accommodating to our entire group as we had a non-typical number of people as there were several couples and they usually jump in groups... More

We jumped at 15000 ft today. It was the most incredible experience of my life. The crew at skydive paradise were awesome, I felt very safe in their hands. A must do if you are visiting Queenstown area. The scenery was amazing!

The skydive master was great. But the reception lady at Glenorchy was rude and had big problem with her attitude. My girlfriend and I were separated into two flights because the lady wanted to fit us into another group to fit their schedule although we made our booking months ahead. Even more disappointing was I paid for video and photos... More

I initially booked the skydive for our daughter and her boyfriend and hesitated to join because my Husband does not like heights . However after family chat I decided I wanted to join, it had been fully booked. At the last minute someone dropped out,so I filled the place. My husband came on the bus to the field and took...

The guys at Skydive Paradise are great - clearly passionate about skydiving and the thrill it gives you! This was my first time and they made me feel at ease and comfortable - a worry never crossed my mind! The whole experience was incredible but to top it off was the scenery! What better place to skydive than over Glenorchy... More

From the driver who brought us to the sky diving drop zone in Glenorchy , the front office manager who gave us some introduction, photoexpert and of course the skydive master Ollie, it was an incredible experience, which could not be topped :-) with the remarkable landscape and lake view. The team is very helpful, knowkedgable and simple fantastic.

As as everyone, my first skydive experience and it was great throughout! The exceptional excellent experience must be from Olly! He is wonderful person and made everything comfortable, safe and relax for me. He safety checked everything on me before I boarded the plane and again when on the plane. Adjusted my goggles repeatedly so I look good in the... More
