The 15-minute flight in one of the two nine-seater Cessna Grand Caravan turbine aircraft provides the opportunity to see some spectacular scenery before reaching the jump altitude. Skydiving in Queenstown is especially appealing because of the impressive landscape and it’s not called ‘The Adventure Capital of the World’ for nothing.

With NZONE Skydive you can choose from three jumpaltitudes, 15,000-feet will let you experience 60-seconds of exhilarating free fall at a maximum speed of over 120-MPH. From 12,000-feet, you get 45-seconds of freefall and from 9,000-feet it is 25 seconds. Go for the highest altitude your budget will allow because even though before you jump you will almost certainly be nervous, once you experience that totally magical feeling of freefalling, which is actually more like flying than falling, you will want it to last forever!
