They said it would be one of our best days ever and they were right! It was so amazing, all the staff are awesome and make you feel so comfortable. My Tandem master was the best ever, he explained everything and showed me so many things while we had the flight, we even saw all the way over to the... More

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.

After having my skydive experience cancelled at Queenstown several times due to poor weather conditions, my friends and I tried at Abel Tasman. It was awesome! We had Terry picked us up at our accommodation and he made us feel awesome. The whole team was friendly too and the video taking was professionally done. Congrats on their excellent service. Will...

The skydive was amazing, staff were friendly and the price was reasonable. What killed it for me was the options for having a picture taken of yourself, you have two options; either you don't, or you pay $199 to have some guy sticking a camera in your face continuously asking annoying questions resulting in an over edited cheesy video at...

Thank you for your suggestions Adam. Your safety is our primary concern and it is due to CAA regulations that we do not allow passengers to take cameras on board. We would not advise anyone to 'smuggle' any items onto the plane for this reason. Our team sincerely cares for every customer we encounter and we love what we do.... More

I was super terrified to go sky diving but the staff made it much more calming and a good experience. My tandem guide was very cool and made me feel safe. I got some great photos to remember the jump. In hind sight, I would have really liked to have the video as well. I would recommend getting both when... More

Never been skydiving before, decided to try it on my honeymoon while in Abel Tasman area. I was a little apprehensive, the staff were friendly, experienced (my tandem master had over 15K jumps), very reassuring, and made sure to explain everything that was happening. Also very thorough on equipment safety. I bought the video package (worth it!) and it turns... More
