It's always been a bit of a dream to throw myself out of a plane, and these guys really know how to make your experience the best ever. The super-friendly staff, the limo pick-up, the video and photo package all help to make this memorable. But then the jump itself over beautiful Lake Taupo is just the most mind-blowing experience...

The best, most thrilling experience I had. Great customer service, great atmosphere, pick up from hotel in a limo, personalized DVD/photo pack, and loads of adrenaline. Wonderful views of Lake Taupo. I will definitely do it again!

Actually I had never planned on doing a skydive in New Zealand, but when you come across convincing fellow travelers, you might just change your plans and get the chance to meet the crew of Skydive Taupo. And I'm so glad I did! Despite lots of 'people traffic' at the base, the crew members explain all the different (photo/video) options... More

Crazy, but I guess there are no regrets. Great way to see the countryside around beautiful Lake Taupo. I will pass this onto Kieran. He's a top man! More

This was the most adrenalin filled adventure I have ever done. The Taupo team filled me with confidence and excitement. I went to 15000 feet and despite being twice the age of my Dive Master I felt really calm and confident with the team. Thx Marly for a great dive. The handycam video is a great memory.

We booked this 1 hour before we went for the jump - definitely the best way as you don't have time to wind yourself up. We were picked up by a friendly girl and taken to the depot where the staff were all encouraging and helpful. The plane ride itself was beautiful over the lake and when it comes to... More

So when your legs are dangling out of the small, propeller plane at 15,000 ft, you start to doubt your life decisions and the questions pops into your head "why?". But don't worry, once the stranger that is tied to your back counts down "3, 2, 1", your fate has already been decided and you're off! Don't over think it,... More

Thankyou for your great recommendation. I'm sure most people ask themselves, "What the hell am I doing this for1" at some point of the experience. Usually as the door opens actually. We've all been there and have become hooked. Thanks again. More

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The staff were extremely professional which made us feel relaxed and safe. Amazing scenery on the plane ride to 15,000 feet. It's worth getting the video so you can relive your jump afterwards, Best adrenalin rush, I would recommend anyone who wants to skydive to jump with Skydive Taupo!

Now for a girl who is terrified of everything, they managed to convince me to sign up to the skydive .. They were however not pushy whatsoever! From the minute you walk in the door the staff greet you as friends, they run you through a video and you can ask as many questions as you like! My fellow skydiver... More
