Reply from Everything Travel Group

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback and sorry to hear your skydive was cancelled for several days due to weather conditions. Unfortunately skydiving is a weather dependent activity and when the weather is slightly marginal there can occasionally be a little waiting around while a decision is made if it is looking like you might get to go later in the day. In your case you were unlucky as the weather did not play ball and your skydive cancelled several days in a row. Your request for a refund was received today and was processed within 10 minutes of receiving your request. Please note, refunds can sometimes take a couple of days to show back in your account but generally they appear next day. Once again, thank you for your feedback and sorry for the disappointment caused by not being able to skydive.

Latest Questions about Skydiving - Nzone Skydive (Queenstown)

Hi, we were looking to book for skydiving but was wondering how long does the whole trip take starting from the shop in Queenstown till the end? Thanks.

Comments

The entire duration for the tandem skydiving in Queenstown is about 3 - 3.5 hours. Including checking in at the skydive shop in town, transfers to and from the skydive base located 20 minutes out of town and the pre jump briefing and jump itself.

Hi Moy, yes you certainly can skydive in Queenstown during winter. The skydiving operates all year round. The air temperature isn't actually too much different to the ground temperature so you won't freeze. You will just need to dress warmly and you are given a skydive suit as well.

Hi There, I will be visiting Queentown the second week of January 2015 and wondered if I needed to pre book my sky dive? Thanks Jackie

Comments

Hi Jackie. December to February are the busiest months for activities in Queenstown with many tours booking up several days and weeks in advance. Given skydiving is weather dependent I would recommend booking asap in order to secure the day and time you desire as often there can be a back log of bookings if the weather has been bad and skydives cancelled. I would suggest booking for one of your first days in Queenstown so that if the skydive does get cancelled you can reschedule to another day or receive a full refund.

Hi..
If my girl friend and I dive together, and we consider to take also the photo and video.. How much is the charges for the photo and video?? Charge as a set or per person??

Comments

Hi Pin. You can certainly go up in the same plane and you will both be able to skydive in Queenstown at the same time with your tandem instructors. If you want the free fall photos and/or video then you will each be allocated a professional photographer who will be assigned to you only. It is not possible for one photographer to film both of you at the same time. The cost is $189 if you want the photos or video or $229 if you want both. You can decide on the day when you check in if you want either of these options. I wold recommend booking for one of your first days in Queenstown as it is weather dependent so if the weather is no good then you can reschedule to another day or receive a full refund.

Does skydiving get cancelled often during this season due to weather conditions?

Comments

Hi Varsha. Skydiving in Queenstown is a weather dependent activity all year and can get cancelled due to low cloud or high wind. If your skydive is cancelled then you have the option of rescheduling or receiving a full refund. We do recommend you book your skydive for one of your first days in Queenstown so that if it is cancelled you can reschedule do another day. I would recommend booking this in advance as it is a very popular activity.

Hi Would like to look at booking a skydive for my husband for his 40th birthday, we will be in Queenstown from Aussie around the 15th march 2014, the only thing is he might be around 105kg and 6ft4ins is that going to be ok?

Comments

Hi Kelly. Unfortunately, the skydive regulations in Queenstown are pretty strict and the max weight limit is set at 100kg (220lbs). Occasionally the tandem jump masters can take people who are slightly heavier than 100kg, ie, 1-2 kilos over, but this is something that can only be decided on the day and depends on the wind conditions and is entirely up to the jump master.

Comments

Hi Simon. Yes the skydiving in Queenstown departs hourly all day. There is a 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm departure. I'd suggest booking the 2.30pm so you have time to grab some lunch in town before your 2.15pm check in at the skydive shop.

As long as you are under 100kg then you are fine to do the skydive. If you are a few kilos over 100kg then we would need to speak to Nzone Skydive in Queenstown to see if they would be able to take you.

If the weather on that day is not suitable for skydive, are we entitle to a full refund? Our ETA should be on the 19th November 2012. And also, how long before should we make a booking with you guys? Appreciate for your kind advise.

Hi Danny. Yes if your Queenstown skydive or any activity you book is cancelled due to bad weather or any other unforeseen circumstance then you can choose to reschedule or receive a full refund from us. I would recommend booking asap as the skydive can get booked up several days in advance. Once you book online we will email your e ticket and booking confirmation. The morning is often the best time of day to skydive as there is usually less wind compared with the afternoon.

Comments

Hi Tanmay. There is only one female skydive instructor currently employed in Queenstown. Like the other instructors, she works on a rotational roster so there is no guarantees she will be working on the day you both decide you want to jump. That being said, we have been advised by the reservations manager that you can put a request in to jump with her and if she is available on the day then you can jump with her. For your information and your wife's piece of mind, all the male instructors are very professional and courteous.

Hi Phil. Unfortunately for safety reasons, you are not allowed to take any camera or video equipment up in the plane with you when you go skydiving in Queenstown. If you do want video or photos of your skydive you can book a freefall photographer who will skydive next to you. This can be organised on the day when you check in for your skydive.

Hi Logan, the best time to skydive is first thing in the morning as that is when conditions are generally at their best in terms of being calm and not windy so the first couple of time slots are the most recommended for skydiving.

Hi Jessie. Skydiving operates all year in Queenstown. Winter is often the best time of year to skydive as the weather is calmer with less winds and rain than summer and the mountains are snow covered which makes for some amazing scenery! Skydiving is weather dependent though so we do recommend booking for one of your first days in Queenstown so that if the weather is bad and you can't skydive you can reschedule to another day or receive a full refund from us.

Hi John. The cost for the freefall photos or video is $179 each or $219 for both of them. The reason for the relative high cost is that you have a dedicated photographer who jumps out of the plane with you and photos/videos you as you freefall.

my partner and I are planning to book the skydive but only I would be having bungy jump. can my partner tag along in trip to bungy jump area?

also, can we be picked-up and dropped off from our hotel (Mercure)?

Comments

Hi Owen, yes your partner is more than welcome to go out with you to the bungy jump however depending on what bungy you are doing there are various spectator conditions that apply. If you are doing the Nevis Bungy then there is a $50 sepctators fee for the transport out there and access to the jump pod via the cable cart or if you are doing the ledge bungy then she would need to purchase a gondola ticket to get up to the ledge bungy. Both Nzone Skydive and Bungy depart from one central Queenstown location rather than picking up from accommodation. These details will be on your voucher.

Hi there, my partner is 125kgs, he is a very tall fit rugby player (not overweight). Would he be able to do a tandem skydive? Just thought I would ask just in case the weight limit is more about fitness rather than the weight.
Thanks Charlie

Comments

Hi Charlie

Unfortunately the 100kg maximum weight limit for the skydiving is very strict. Their equipment is not designed to carry people over this weight. You might want to consider a bungy jump instead. The Nevis bungy allows up to 127kg and the Kawarau bungy even more. You can find both of these bungy jumps by using our search bar on the top left of our web page.

Hi Rachel yes 220lbs (100kg) is the limit for skydiving and they will not take over unfortunately, even if it is just by a little bit. They do weigh you on the day so if someone's booked thinking they are borderline but are over on the day then a refund will be provided.

Comments

Hi Emma. Yes spectators are allowed to come along to the skydive drop zone in Queenstown as long as there is space in the van. What you will need to do is pop into the skydive shop the night before you plan on coming along to watch to see if there is going to be space for you in the Skydive van. If there is not space then you are welcome to drive yourself out to the drop zone (located 15 minutes out of town).

Hi

I am currently travelling around the South Island and plan to arrive in Queenstown for 12/13th May and aim to stay for 4 days. How far will I need to book in advance?

Comments

Hi Dan, we recommend booking at least a few days in advance to ensure you are able to reserve a space for your desired time. May is generally pretty quiet in Queenstown so it is not as essential to book with plenty of time in advance as it can be at other times during the year. If you are only in Queenstown for 2 days I recommend booking your skydive for the 12th and if weather prevents your skydive from going ahead then you always have the 13th as a back up day. Obviously if the weather sees cancellations on both days then you are entitiled to a full refund.

I AM SCARED OF HEIGHTS, BUT I LIKE THE IDEA OF THE TANDEM JUMP. I JUST NEED PERSUADING !!! (I MIGHT SEE YOU IN OCTOBER !)

Comments

Hi Gaz, Skydiving with Nzone Queenstown is an absolutely remarkable experience and one of a lifetime that I have no doubt that if you make the decision to jump you will absolutely love it, be thrilled you did it and want to do it again. The team at Nzone Queenstown are very helpful and accommodating to people who are nervous with heights and help people overcome this fear daily. I definitely recommend you take on the challenge in October!

Would like to know if you still operate If the weather is not suitable? I am looking to try in August.thanks

Comment by: Viviane Mcclelland on 10th Jul 12 at 20:01

Hi Viviane. No, the skydiving only goes ahead if there are favourable weather conditions. This means that if it is raining or there is low cloud or high winds then the jumps are cancelled. If this happens you can reschedule to another day or receive a full refund. That being said, the weather in Queenstown in winter is usually very stable with low winds and clear skies so you have a good chance of skydiving in August.

hi i would like to know what a photo and dvd package usually costs, do you jump all year round?

Comments

Hi Matthew. Yes you can skydive in Queenstown all year round with operations only haulted on Christmas Day. The cost for the freefall photos or video is $179 each or $219 for both of them. The reason for the relative high cost is that you have a dedicated photographer who jumps out of the plane with you and photos/videos only you as you freefall.

I would like buy a b-day woucher.How I have to pay,can u send me some info,I'll need the woucher on saturday this weekend,thanks so lot.

Comments

Hi Petr, click on the "Book Now" button and then select the box "I want this to be an open dated gift voucher." You then continue through the booking process entering all the necessary information. Once you have paid via credit card and finished processing your order the gift voucher will be automatically emailed to your email address for you to give to the receiver. When the receiver of the voucher decides they want to redeem the voucher they just need to book their activity online and pay with their voucher code.

Hi, im wondering if there is there a spectators fee?

Comments

Hi Nicole spectators of the Nzone skydive are welcome to go and watch the skydiving for free as long as there is room in their bus. This cannot be guaranteed though and is only available on the day. If there is no space in the bus spectators are welcome to drive themselves out to watch.

Hi there,
I am wanting to book a Skydive as a gift, I know which date to book. But should I book under gift voucher or the date and if I book under the date and the weather is off can it become a gift voucher valid for 6 months or whatever?

Comments

Hi Charlotte. When you book the skydive as a voucher it doesn't matter what date you put down as the person who gets the gift needs to redeem the voucher when they know what date they want to go skydiving and book it online. If it is bad weather on the day of the skydive the person will have the chance to reschedule or be refunded the amount back onto the gift voucher.

What is the maximum weight you will accept for a sky dive? Would 110kg be OK?

Comments

Hi Jenny. Unfortunately skydiving regulations at Nzone have a weight limit of 100kg and are unable to accept any heavier. An alternative option however could be a bungy jump. 110kg is fine for a bungy.

Hi I want to buy my partner a skydive for his birthday (12000 ft). I also want the photos and the DVD. I am going to buy him a voucher, do I include the price of the photos and DVD in the voucher or do I pay seperately on the day? :)

Comments

Hi Samarah, the photos and DVD for the Nzone Skydive need to be paid for separately on the day. Unfortunately, these are unable to be paid for by the voucher, only the skydive itself can be.

Are the photos and DVD included in the price of the skydive? If not how much are they?

Comments

Hi Sophie. The Nzone Skydive jump prices on the site do not include photos and videos. You need to pay for these separately on the day. The Freefall Photos are $179, the Freefall Video is $179 and if you want both the price is $219.

I have my own camera is that ok for me to bring it and film by myself(a gopro so it won't fall)

Comment by: alain on 11th Apr 12 at 17:19

Hi Alain, unfortunately Nzone do not allow personal cameras to be taken skydiving. If you want the video of it you need to purchase it off Nzone on the day.

hey i was wondering how much was the dvd and photo combo be????

Comments

Hi Amanuel. The Nzone Queenstown skydive freefall photos & video cost $179 each or $219 if you purchase both. Your tandem jump master does not take the photos of you. If you choose to purchase the photos or video then you will have a personal photographer jump out of the plane with you and capture your tandem jump.

Would you happen to have a lighter instructor or something for my fat arse boyfriend who weighs in at 110kg??

Comments

Hi Lisa, unfortunately Nzone Skydive stick to their 100kg weight limit and cannot go over it. Maybe look into something else such as the 134m Nevis Bungy (max weight 127kg).

I will be arriving with my wife on 25 Dec at 2pm. Obviously we will need time to check out of airport, checkin to hotel etc.

What is the latest departure time to go for skydiving? Is it pick up from hotel or do we have to meet somewhere?

Comments

Hi Edward, The latest Nzone skydive trip each day in December is currently 3:30pm. However on the day and depending on demand they will open up 4:30 & 5:30pm trips. Nzone are also not operating on Christmas Day. Dec/Jan are very busy in Queenstown and if you want to make sure you have a seat, then it's best to book in advance. There is a central meeting point at the Nzone shop on 35 Shotover Street, which is the main st of the Queenstown CBD.
