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

Highly recommend these guys - the staff are friendly and professional and the location is great with the airstrip on the edge of town near the Top10 Holiday Park. I did the 16,000ft skydive for $399 and thoroughly enjoyed it - the views of the mountains and glaciers during the flight and free fall are stunning. My wife was also... More

The view while skydiving is just amazing; snow capped mountains, green forests and the deep blue sea. You hardly get more anywhere else. The only downside is that the photos are taken by a GoPro on the instructors arm. The photos/video is decent but not worth the money. Particularly the extra costs for video is ridiculous because it's just a... More
