You are not the first to have a little cry Zoe. Congratulations for getting out of your comfort zone and making a great personal achievement. We all have to do this from time to time. Come back another day and Chris will look after you again. More

I jumped with Skydive Taupo on 13 January 2015. It has taken me a few weeks to find the right words to express how I feel about the experience. For me it was my second Tandem Skydive having jumped in November 2014 with Skydive Taupo's sister company Skydive Auckland. The day was perfect my instructor Ronnie was an absolute legend... More

Sounds like you might be addicted Paula! It happens to us all. Thanks for mentioning Ronny. I will pass this on. He will be competing in the Taupo Ironman on the 7th March, but in the meantime, he continues to make people happy everyday, up in the skies over the beautiful Lake Taupo. More

I was very nervous about doing a tandem skydive but I'm so glad I did it! I did the 15,000 ft jump with the handy cam option, which ensured I have plenty of pictures to show people! The staff were very professional and calm, and really put you at ease. The free falling bit was amazing; this was the bit... More

The freefal part is often the part of the experience which is feared the most. It is only after doing it that you realise how awesome it is and you'll wish that the frefall could be longer. Good decision to opt for the 15,000 foot jump. Thankyou for the review. More

I was extremely nervous about doing a tandem skydive. I had always wanted to do one, and being in my 40's decided I had better act on it. Staff were extremely friendly. The instructor I was strapped to, was younger than me, but was fantastic, he literally had my life in his hands. He helped calm me. I opted for... More

I think that we all have to admit that we were at some point scared during our first jump. Tandem Instructors all need to have a minimum of 750 jumps before they can begin to qualify for their rating. Our Instructors range in experience from 1700 to 20,000 jumps. Many have been with us alot of years. And yes, some... More

could not have wanted more from a skydiving experience. The staff were fab, they explained everything and were really professional but very supportive and light hearted about all situations. Morris was a fab guy to jump with, he was so calming and chilled he really put me at ease. The jump was incredible, he let us steer the parachute and... More

This was super fun. If you're thinking of which height to go from do the highest. From 15,000 ft you have enough time to get over the initial OH MY GOD I JUST FELL OUT OF A PLANE and after that you can enjoy the amazing view over Taupo. I've gotten endless questions about what ifs since I got home... More
