NZONE Skydive. Here's a different way of taking in the view of Queenstown; from a tandem skydive. At 15,000 feet the earth is already taking on that round from-out-of-space look about it that says you're a long way up. You don't have to jump from that high: there are 12,000 and 9,000 feet options. Either way it's an unforgettable experience, helped by Jumpmasters who make you feel at ease (relatively speaking!). And it's good to know this company has been operating successfully for over 23 years. You have to be under 100 kg (220 lbs) to do a tandem skydive. Prices start at NZ$299.
