My partner and I went skydiving for our birthdays in April this year, it was unfortunate that it took sooooo long for the plane to take us up individually, as the plane was too small to take two jumpers at the same time. Despite this, we had a great time and the safety checks were very thorough. Loved it!

We bought a Grab One deal also and the team in Whangarei did everything to accommodate us. We had to rebook a couple of times due to weather but hey its NZ and weather is unpredictable so booking in advance can be hit and miss. Nevertheless we raced up to Whangarei on our motorbikes yesterday and had the most AMAZING... More

A great reputation, great attitude, cool very experienced staff and real important, a great safety record. They have also been at the leading edge of skydiving in Nz. .. First commercial beach skydives in NZ (if you want to jump... More

We bought a grab one deal, found it hard to book with an unhelpful receptionist, had many cancelled trips due to "bad weather", until our voucher expired were offered an extra month for an extra $50! A poorly run business which made a bucket list experience a real hassle which never eventuated. :( Very disapointed!

Hi Michelle, first of all I am sorry that you feel your experience was ruined. Skydiving is a weather dependent activity and keeping our customers and instructors safe is our number one priority. The conditions on your grab one voucher clearly state this. It's unfortunate that the occasions where you yourself cancelled at short notice were days when the weather... More

The good: This was our first time skydiving so there were obviously some nerves. The team put us at ease straight away, explaining the process, giving us weather updates on the wind and cloud, etc. The tandem instructor was good, and having jumped over 10,000 times was well qualified for the job. The equipment seemed safe and safety instructions were... More

This is something you have to experience at least once in your life, and this is the place to do it. great fun place, great staff there - just the best group of people, amazing jumping location. If you have any doubt about this in your mind, dump it and just sign up.

Hi Josh, thanks so much for your review. Skydiving is a great sport, so if you are keen to go for another, you should think about learning to skydive. Jumping solo is whole other experience! More
