Really friendly staff, made us feel very safe. Even though it was a bit cloudy still had great views of Mt. Cook above the clouds and the glacier! They even let us steer the parachute for a bit! A must do! Good value too compared to other ones we saw. Couldn't stop smiling after!

At Fox Glacier I did my first skydive and it was awesome! The crew is very nice and cheerful. The name of my Tandem partner was Emiliano and I felt save and confortable at all times. Particulary the photos are very good, because he is smiling the hole time. And his selfie is nearly the best photo. I love them!... More

Myself and my husband were travelling around the world and during our New Zealand tour with Stray bus, skydiving was mentioned on several occasions. We heard from a friend we met in Australia about Fox Glacier skydive that it is the best in the world, so my husband decided to do it once we arrive in New Zealand. I always... More

After jumping here, it's easy to see why Fox Glacier is consistently ranked as one of the best places in the world to skydive. The staff were helpful and friendly; especially Mauro, my jumpmaster. I felt incredibly safe the entire time, and the views were AMAZING, even before the jump. One word of advice regarding photos and video. I'd recommend... More

I did the 16,500ft Skydive with the photo & video combo. The staff were great & it was by far one of the scarcest things I have ever done but well... More
