Though I would love to give such an amazing experience 5 stars. I'm afraid my experience was hindered. I went with my cousin who had opted not to do it. The staff were fun and helpful and full of laughs and lovely to me. My experience was amazing and I recommend it to everyone. The only thing that made the... More

I came here for my first ever skydive, knowing that I couldn't leave New Zealand without completing one! I jumped with three other people who arrived at the same time and all four of us opted to jump from 15,000ft, including photos and video. My tandem master (Tim) was very friendly and put me at ease. I felt quite sick... More

I went with Taupo Tandem for my skydiving experience as several friends recommended them. They didn't disappoint. They were great at staying in touch beforehand and even called to say they were running faster than expected if I wanted to come in earlier. From check-in on, each staff member was friendly and encouraged us to ask any questions we had... More

I jumped from 15.000 ft this time and this is the one I recommend. It gives you more time to enjoy the free fall (about 1 min). One of the best feelings in the world - freedom above everything. Staff was very friendly, on land and up in the air! Prices were a bit chili, but better than Queenstown, for... More

Just got back from this amazing experience! All the team at TTS were very friendly and professional. I jumped from 15000 ft and took the freefall video/photo. I'm really glad I took that option as the result is wicked! I was really well informed by the team about safety and other rules to follow when jumping. All the team made... More

I loved the skydive so much.Was such an amazing place to jump over so much to see. You are looking down on a huge crater and on a clear day like mine you can see the top and bottom of the north island of New Zealand. Prices were better than some others in New Zealand but i didn't get a... More

My fifteen year old daughter used Tandem for her first skydive. They were excellent. Very safe and well organised and beginners should feel very reassured. Most of all it is fantastic fun (although not for those watching!!!).

Entertaining and friendly staff ensures this experience is one you will never remember. Prices are very reasonable for what you are getting, and the edited freefall video is extremely well done. Would definitely return!
