Tandem skydive in Queenstown from 15,000ft

It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft at 9,000 ft 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 an experienced qualified Jumpmaster, you step out of that aircraft door and for some 25 seconds freefall at 200 kph – terminal velocity!

After an exhilarating freefall, you will experience a 5 minute parachute ride, floating safely back down to the skydive drop zone.
