Couldn't have asked for a better first time experience with sky diving! The views were incredible, the staff were super friendly, the hummer was comfy and convenient but most important Brad Rock was the best Instructor I could have asked for!! He eased my nerves and added some humor to my great quality video! WAAAHOOOOOO.

I just did my first skydive here and it was fantastic. All the staff were brilliant and helpful. I had a fantastic jump with Elad who managed to calm my nerves. The pick up and drop off service in the hummer was pretty cool too. Thanks guys.

Great experience from pick up to preparing us to take off, to the actual jump, videos and drop off. These guys are safe, fun, and professional. The Hummer Limo ride kept the adrenaline rush going on the ground as well ;-) Thank you guys for an awesome experience

I did a 12000 feet tandem skydive and enjoed it very much! My andem master Albert Schurman really understood to make me feel safe (talking to me, explaining, calming me down) and I never doubted I would make it back safely. Landscape very beautiful, handling professional, awesome experience, pick-up in Taupo hostel appreciated. Just the foto options are a pure... More

I was here in May 2014, surprised my boyfriend with a skydive for his birthday, 5 friends also jumped with us! Staff were awesome here! They don't freak you out too much haha. The skydive was an amazing experience. Definitely the best way to see the beautiful views.

I'm very scared of heights…yet it was totally worth it! My tandem buddy and I were the last two to jump (which made the wait more nerve racking!) but once you jump you don't feel like you are falling at all. The view was beautiful (12000ft jump) and you could see from one side of the Island to the other!... More

I had an awesome day with Taupo Taundem. My trip was at the beginning of March, and I decided the weather was too beautiful to not go skydiving that particular day. The receptionist at my hostel called up TTS that morning and booked me for a pick up time within an hour-and-a-half. They pick you up in a snazzy stretched... More
