While on holiday in New Zealand we thought we should do the essentials such as bungee and sky diving, couldn't have picked a better destination / company for our first dive! We were left hanging around waiting for a quite a long time though with not much communication, only compliant

Thank you to Mauro who was my tandem buddy and Mark who was the buddy for my sister. We had never done ANYTHING as crazy as this before but you guys made us feel comfortable and secure as could be. The fact that you went through all the steps of fastening and explained every step of the jump made us... More

I wanted to Skydive since I travelled around OZ for the past two years but had been told that New Zealand would be THE PLACE to do it. Whilst staying in Fox Glacier I have been told that this is No. 2 in the world (only Mt. Everest beating it). I was soooooooo scared to do my 16,000 ft. jump... More

I did my first skydive here a year ago and it was really amazing... The view from the plane alone is so scenic and beautiful. My instructor was Wes and I could't feel more relaxed about jumping out of a plane! He was very patient and explained everything. I jumped from 12,000 feet and enjoyed every second. Got some photo's... More

I never thought i would have the guts to do a sky dive so when i eventually built up the courage to do it, i was glad I did it with the guys in Fox. The guys are so friendly and kept me calm! We had nothing booked and phoned them on the off chance and 15 minuites later we... More

We did our first skydive (18,000 ft) ever at Fox Glacier and both loved it! The view from the plane is absolutely scenic and the jump, especially the freefall is just amazing.. One of the best days of my life. The staff was friendly too! Even though it was amazing, it is a bit expensive, especially the photo/video part as... More

My boyfriend and I planned to do this skydive weeks in advanced and unfortunately it got cancelled because of bad weather. However, the sun came out the next day and the guys from Skydive Fox Glacier allowed us to suit up and jump right on the plane as soon as we rocked up! It was both our 1st time skydiving,... More

I did my first tandem sky dive with these guys and absolutely loved it! We had beautiful weather which meant incredible views over the glaciers, the Southern Alps and the Tasman Sea. My instructor Mark was very experienced and reassured me so I felt safe and not too nervous. All of the people working here seem really enthusiastic about their... More

I had an amazing first jump! The staff was really nice and calm. My tandem guy was Nico and he was really relaxed, which helped a lot. Felt totally safe, was a bit nervous but that is normal. Nico explained everything well, so when we jumped I was ready. Sort of (; It is pretty scary jumping out of plane!!... More

My first ever skydive and it was the most beautiful place to do it with views of the mountains, lakes, glacier and ocean from the plane on our ascent. The guides were friendly, fun and very good at what they do. I really recommend purchasing either the photos or the video of your jump too as some of the footage... More
