Actually went from 12,000 ft - but it's not offering that option in the review drop-down menu, and I think they might also offer it from 20,000 ft too. Glenorchy is beautiful, but it's even better when you feel like you're flying. Had a great time, and the staff were great at answering any questions we had about the safety video etc. Just be aware it is a long drive to the jump site (there are bathrooms there, but be prepared for the trip there on the bus.)

Best thing I have ever done! I was so nervous about skydiving, but throughout the whole experience Reuben made sure I felt comfortable and knew everything that was going on. He made me feel safe and secure throughout the whole process. He was the absolute best!!! Can not recommend this company enough!!

Southern Alps is the perfect place to sky dive for your first time and even for your 20th time. ALL of the guides were amazing and make you feel very comfortable. I was about to cry before I even got on the plane and my guide, Murphy, talked me through the whole entire journey and made me feel comfortable and safe. It was amazing and the best experience of my life. The first day we tried to sky dive we drove to the area and it was too windy. The staff there know what they are doing and will do anything to keep you safe. They offered us another day, time, and area to skydive to fit our schedule. My friends guides were Jake and Reuben and they were awesome too! Don’t be scared just do it! P.s. the views were priceless
