I jumped from 15000ft a little over a week ago with Apiata Apanui and I still cannot get over how amazing it was! From the skydive itself to how nice my tandem master was and also how safe and comfortable he made feel, everything was just simply, brilliant.

i booked the skydive the night before, and the next day I got picked up by Elliott, a really friendly and happy fellow from England. Made me feel relaxed and he recommended doing the 15 000 ft. Got to the base, and they even had an offer going, pick the golden package and get an upgrade for the platinum for... More

When it is such a lovely clear skied day in taupo, what do you immediately think of? jumping out of a plane of course! Taupo tandem was amazing from start to finish. My tandem master Apiata Apanui aka Api was a legend and all around good guy- recommend him!

Wow! What a rush. The best experience on our travels around New Zealand. Everything from being collected in the famous Yellow stretched Hummer to falling out of a plane 12,000 ft in the air. I jumped with Ryan who was again amazing, felt safe the whole time and had a blast on go way down, doing spins and steep banks... More

Jumped off at 15k ft with Michael Holmes! Best tandem master to have! Couldn't ask for anyone better to make me feel safe jumping out off a moving plane! Definitely coming back for a second jump in the near future!

This is a must try for all those interested to jump off from the security of a twin engine to the shores of Lake Taupo :) Thanks to my instructor Michael Holmes - He was really reassuring and helped me enjoy the unnerving dive from the plane. If you are deciding between 12K and 15K, I would really recommend the... More
