TANDEM SKYDIVING – THE ULTIMATE
NEW ZEALAND ACTIVITY!
It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft at 15,000ft into thin air. It takes courage.
Expect sensory overload as your mind, body and soul fight against every natural self-preserving urge. The challenge is immense. Harnessed by space age materials to a qualified Jumpmaster, you step out of that aircraft door and for up to 60 seconds freefall at 200 kph – terminal velocity!
Tandem Skydive with NZONE Skydive in Queenstown in New Zealand’s South Island and see some of the most dramatic scenery in NZ, from 15,000ft! In 1990, NZONE Skydive were NZ’s first tandem skydive operation and are now celebrating 30 years of skydiving. NZONE are the only tandem skydive company to have been awarded the Supreme Tourism Award and have jumped over 300,000 tandem to-date.
After a 15 minute scenic flight to altitude, you will nudge towards the edge of the plane before being thrown out! Keep your head up, smile at your skydive photographer and take in the stunning surroundings. After an exhilarating freefall, you will experience a 4-5 minute parachute ride, floating safely back down to the skydive drop zone.
Take home the most comprehensive skydive photo & video pack in New Zealand. Yours to take away on the day; relive and share your experience anytime. Take a look at some example customer photos and videos.
Our world-leading Queenstown drop zone includes a customer cafe with 6 internet kiosks and new Discovery Zone so you can watch the parachutes being packed and learn about the history of skydiving, the make-up of the equipment involved and how the freefall camera systems work. There are drinks and snacks available for purchase, toilets and a souvenir clothing & gifts store, as well as free WI-FI. We also have lockers to store your valuables while skydiving.
Courtesy transport to our drop zone is included in the price from the Queenstown shop.
If you prefer you can check in at our shop and then drive to the drop zone. This maybe a good option if car parking in Queenstown for several hours is a challenge.
Allow 3 hours return trip from Queenstown shop.
