Otago Skydiving? Can't Post

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to skydive in dunedin (or the surrounding areas eg mosgiel). I know you can do it in wanaka etc, but i've read online that you can do it in dunedin too, but its hard to find contact information for this, so im starting to wonder if the place has gone out of business?
if anyone can help, i'd appreciate it.
Thanks!

Unfortunately no, there are no DZ's currently operating in that part of the country as far as I'm aware. Your closest options are really Skydive Wanaka, NZONE Queenstown, or Skydiving Kiwi's in Rangitata. There's Franz, Fox, and Methven too, though they are obviously even further out.

Thanks for that! I thought it was a bit weird when i couldn't find contact info for the place i found (parachute experience, or something similar). Oh well, back to the drawing board!

Tandem or sports jumping? I traveled around the south island last month and as a sports jumper would probably only go back to skydiving kiwis. The rest of the drop zones I saw are either exclusively tandem operations or heavily tandem based. Methven seemed OK, but it is a school at the end of the day and IMO a terrible spot for a DZ (weather wise). I heard Nzone actually made their lift tickets so expensive for fun jumpers that they aren't forced to turn them down like other DZ's - the fun jumpers turn them down Wink
