The team led by Mark was great. We booked and waited for nearly 2 hours in the evening for others in front of us to complete. The climate suddenly changed, even then it was possible for a dive, but Mark insisted us to come the next morning for a proper dive with great views. We did the same. The views... More

Fox Glacier Sky dive company was amazing to work with. We had booked a dive the night before but they fit us in and welcomed us when we got there. We were super lucky to have amazing weather that morning. There were 4 of us in our group and 3 of us were very nervous as this was our first... More

It was certainly a lifetime experience for both of us! My boyfriend had sent emails to the company and told them bout the plans of having a marriage proposal right after we skydived! The management agreed straightaway and even helped out! Of course i knew nothing bout it, and we somehow stayed in Franz Josef for 3 days just to... More

There's no question that this is The Place to Skydive (mountains, glaciers and coastlines, oh my!), but it's the team at Skydive Fox Glacier that seals the deal. From the moment we arrived we watched as Mark, Francois, Amelio and the whole team worked together like a well-oiled machine to prep us and the equipment for the dive. I felt... More

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
