This is a ideal place to do your first ever tandem skydive, as you do have the choice of jumping from 3 different heights and also have the option of either having it photographed or videoed as well if you want, this location is also good as the chances are you will get good weather for your jump and will...

I booked a 16.500ft package at Skydive Abel Tasman and that was nearly the best I have ever done!! A beautiful scenic flight and than the moment your feet are hanging outside, you are feeling the air, you realize that you are leaving the plane......., seconds you will never ever forget, I get hooked on it and it make me...

We did our first ever skydive jump here in December 2014, at 13,000 feet. We had driven up all the way from the south of the island, over 2 days. No regrets at all ! The Great: 1.

My girlfriend and I thought it was a good idea to jump on the 1st of January. And it was! We had an amazing jump of 16.500 feet and the view was absolutely amazing! Thanks for this amazing experience.

Christmas Eve will never be the same again! Someone in our party suggested a tandem sky dive .. before we knew it 5 of us were strapped to our buddies and packed into a small plane preparing to jump out at 13,000 feet! It was scarey, exciting, amazing .. the best adrenaline rush. When we landed I just wanted to... More

This was an incredible experience. The staff makes you feel safe and at ease because they are reallly organized. The views whilst coming down with the parachute and the free fall were simply amazing. However I would recommend that there would be a package of just photos because the video package is expensive at $199.
