Not long ago I made my skydive from 15,000 ft! If you are in Taupo then you probeley visit the volcano for crossing and you sail on Lake Taupo, but you certainly make a skydive! And I tell you with Skydive Taupo! Why?! They show you from the outset you at ease and important, it is safe! There's a great... More

Thank you for your great review. Hans has featured again. Amazing enthusiasm even after completing over 20,000 jumps. Glad to hear that you made the most of your visit to the Taupo area by making the Tongariro Crossing and sailing our beautiful lake. But most of all, thankyou for choosing Skydive Taupo. More

Jumping out of a plane is agreeably one of the craziest things you'll ever do, so you wanna make sure you're doing it with the right people. Skydive Taupo was a very nice experience, and the staff there is just great - they know how to make you feel relaxed and safe. The limousine pick up is also a nice... More

Skydive Taupo was just the greatest skydiving experience ever. It was my first jump, so the nerves were there, but the team was so professional and friendly that I honestly felt at ease and just had an absolute blast. Thanks again to Roy and everyone and Skydive Taupo!

This was one of the BEST experiences of my life!! First time skydiver and had the normal nerves but last minute decided to go for the higher 15,000 ft jump because once I'd purchased the photos and video, there was only a $60 difference compared to the 12,000. It was all very smooth - got into my suit, wrote on... More

Thankyou for your review. I've never heard any one say that they have regretted taking the highest jump option. Freefall seems to be over so fast when you're having fun! It is however common to hear people say that they wished they had taken the higher option. Laz is one of our international staff who comes to New Zealand each... More
