What to Expect from Skydive Wanaka in Queenstown
Wanaka skydiving is an experience that has it all: The thrill of freefall, the beauty of mountainous scenery and the assurance of a professional instructor. Get transferred to Wanaka Airport, hop aboard a plane and get whisked away to the drop area. Meet your expert tandem instructor, receive a safety briefing, get strapped into your harness and take that leap of faith. You will have three height options for your jump: 9,000 feet (2,743 meters); 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) or the ultimate 15,000 feet (4,572 meters). The flight lets you reach the speed of up to 200 kilometers per hour and after about a minute of freefall, your parachute will open. You may want to close your eyes during the flight — but try to keep them open to catch the breathtaking views down below as you fly over Mt. Cook, Mt. Aspiring, the Southern Alps, up to 6 lakes and the Clutha River.
