Skydiving with Skydive Abel Tasman was extremely seamless. My tandem partner had over 11,000 dives and I felt the utmost confidence skydiving with him. It was the highlight of my four months in New Zealand. I wish I had gone for a second dive and that I'd gotten the video.

When in Rome, try crossing a road, when in New Zealand…consider doing a skydive. Go on…live a little-but fear not safety is paramount and you will live longer than a little! Motueka is close to Nelson at the top left, or far north west for people not looking at the map, of the South Island of New Zealand. Looking at... More

My husband and I walked in off the street with an interest in doing a skydive and were delighted to be in the air within an hour undertaking our first skydive. We experienced professional service from start to finish and the staff put us at ease. I would thoroughly recommend this to first time and second hand skydivers. The views... More

My partner and I both completed the 16,500 foot skydive with photos and videos this morning. We had booked through Expedia in the UK for the 16,500 foot as we thought if we only ever do one skydive in our lifetimes it may as well be the highest one we could do. Originally we were booked in for Friday 8th... More

This being my 4th jump, I was looking for something different to my other jumps in Australia, and they won me over with the fantastic way they capture the video and photos. Far beyond what any Sydney Skydive companies offer, they send another diver up to jump slightly before you and they video AND take pictures from a different angle,... More

I have always wanted to do a sky dive but didn't think I had the courage, until a holiday to NZ. I'd looked into a few places to jump before we left home and decided on Skydive Abel Tasman, mainly because of the reviews. They were everything I hoped, professional, safe, no hard sell and gave me the confidence I... More

The skydive experience itself was AMAZING! Never thought I'd be jumping out of a plane at the age of 51 ;) My tandem partner helped me feel calm and safe during the entire experience from the briefing to landing. I had the utmost confidence in his capability. The only reason I'm giving it a 4/5 is because the price advertised... More

Today I did the skydive with 16500 feet and it was just awesome. Thanks to all the guys from the team and specially my tandem partner Dan. It was just great and I am speechless. I enjoyed my first time jump and want to do it again.
