I did an amazing jump a few days ago but unfortunately the very rare event occurred of the photo/video not working. Even though I didn't expect anything as it wasn't their fault and the contract only required a refund of the photo/video part, they generously offered me a full refund or another jump for free. I gratefully chose the latter,... More

There aren't enough words to describe how amazing my experience was! I did my first skydive at Skydive Taupo and my instructor did a wonderful job helping me and gave me a incredible experience! I will definitely be recommending them to everyone I know! A great place for a first jump! I will surely be comming back for a second... More

Sounds like you had a blast. Pleased to hear that your instructor made things easy for you too. What we do here is take you for a skydive, not teach you to skydive. Leave it to us to look after you. More

Wow. What can I say. Everyone was just great. Was informative and knew when to use humor. Which was great. The views are amazing and that feeling.... nothing can comprehend that feeling again ( unless jumping again) Thanks so much for another amazing memory in my life.

I did the 15000ft skydive and it was an amazing feeling of jumping out of a plane and parachuting. Although I wasnt very keen on doing it at first, it is not something you'll regret doing. Plus, the view was incredible! I think skydive Taupo offers one of the cheapest price in New Zealand. Unfortunately, I didn't get the DVD... More

We have, over the years, continued to keep our prices well below or equal to all other skydive operators around New Zealand. This generally enables customers to afford DVD/Photo packages to record their experience. I apologise that you felt you were entitled to discounts.We have no arrangement, with the tour group involved, that would entitle their customers to a skydiving... More

I was given about an hour and a half to mentally prepare myself for the Taupo Skydive. Its not often that you spontaneously choose to fall 15,000ft from the sky. So feeling terrified yet excited at the same time I approached the Skydive Taupo base accompanied by Jack who was also going to be falling from the sky. Our group... More

Great to hear that the weather cleared for you to finally get you jump. The cloud can race in quite quickly at times which does require us to return to the ground in the plane. There are rules which determine what sort of cloud we can jump through. The main thing is that you did it! I will pass this... More

Three of us went along to skydive on a busy Saturday in May. We phoned ahead and were grateful that they said they would squeeze us in. It all seemed quite well organised so we didn't have to wait too long for the adventure to start.They were very informative and safety conscious, it was great to be able to see... More

Saturdays of late have been rather busy. We do try to pick up the game a bit without compromising a good experience. Delays on these days sometimes occur while waiting for video editing. We do however prefer customers to view their videos prior to leaving for quality control purposes. This has however been sped up this week by the introduction... More

The rush of falling out of an aircraft at 15,000 ft is indescribable. Free falling at 200 kms an hour over Lake Taupo on a beautiful clear day, where you can see hundreds of kms across the region is exhilarating. The staff were very welcoming and made us feel at ease. Thank you to Reece who took me up for... More

This is the craziest thing I have ever done. My kids call me the safety police, so this is very out of character. The staff were so clever at putting everyone at ease, and really added to the experience. As well as being funny, my tandem master assured me he would keep me safe. I am really glad that I... More

Well we do use the strap line "Fear is temporary, achievement is permanent". It is so true. I'm sure that you will get that tingly feeling back each time you watch your DVD. Thanks for taking the time to make the review. More

We all remember your group of friends and are pleased that you chose to jump with Skydive Taupo. I think that jumping with others sometimes gives you that little bit of extra courage that is sometimes needed. Thankyou for your kind words. They have been shared with all the staff. More
