I persuaded my friend that a skydive would be an awesome idea. She agreed in principal however when we were a week away from doing it she panicked, and when I say panicked I mean it! She woke in the night sweating, couldn't stop questioning people, everything!! It was driving me crazy! So much so that when we arrived at... More

I never intended to skydive but went along with a few friends who booked in advance. After chatting with Francoise, a 25 year skydiving veteran and part owner, before I knew it I was fully suited up. Although very nervous, he talked me through every aspect - from safety to the likelihood of an unfortunate event. While this is all... More

This morning at 10am I did my very first jump at 13,000ft! Spontaneously booked it with my partner last night and I spent the whole night nervously freaking out. I really don't know why. My dive partner was Emelio, and he was just the best! I felt so safe and secure with him and he was so lovely all the... More

Perfect 10/10- clear sky, uninterrupted views of all glaciers (Fox, Franz Joseph) Mounts Cook and Tasman, the Tasman Sea, Lake Makenzie, and the various rivers. Before the jump you get a wonderful scenic flight of the region so yet another bonus. Very friendly and professional staff- you're in safe hands. Can't recommend Fox Glacier Skydiving enough!

I just want too say, what an amazing experience jumping out of a plane at 16,500 feet at Fox Glacier. The guys at Skydive Fox Glacier were awesome and made the experience very memorable. Thanks guys, especially Nico (mate for life) who made my virgin skydive an ever-lasting experience. The views over Mount Cook, Mount Tasmin, Fox Glacier and then... More

It was our first skydive and we loved it. We arrived a little bit to early but it was perfect, because the weather just changed and we had a good to go. The stuff was very helpful, friendly and most important we felt save all the time. We really enjoyed the 10 min. flight and of course the jump out... More

First skydive ever! The weather couldn't be better blue sky no clouds and wind. The crew was amazing. Making sure everthing was secure and safe. Making me feel comfortable first few seconds (jumping out of the plane) were scary before and after that amazing! got some great photo's and video. Thanks!

Great experience. The crew is very friendly and professional. The scenery is exceptional. If you want to do a skydive, this is a good place. Only the weather can be tricky. So if the weather is good, jump!

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.
