Taupo Tandem was the first skydive I have ever done and it was incredible; clear blue skies and spectacular views! I wasn't scared for one minute and my tandem master Rob made me feel so safe (despite making jokes about detaching me mid-skydive and I may or may not fall out of my harness from being so small)! All of... More

I recently done a sky dive, and I am not a huge fan of heights. I loved every minute of it. Brad, my tandem master, made me feel completely at ease and making jokes. If Brad is your tandem master, don't take too much he says seriously. The Skydive is really 3 experiences in 1 - a fantastic scenic flight... More

Brilliant experience!!! Very professional! Good choice of photo packages. The only thing I thought with the exit photo was that if you purchased it, that it was going to be a print out copy not just added to the USB stick.... Thank you for an amazing experience!

If you wanna dive, it's got to be TTS and HAS to be with Andy!! No one can be better than him, he made the jump so comfortable and kept on pointing to the amazing landscapes around. Informative and fun! He gave such amazing spins once the parachute opened which gave butterflies in my stomach! The entire crew is so... More
