Skydiving with Skydive Taupo was an awesome experience. Confirmation on the phone, pick up and drop in a limo, safety briefing, friendly tandem diving instructor (Chris) who was calming, reassuring and engaging and the skydive itself - The free fall felt magical and fast and the parachuting down was just great. It was a clear day and the views of... More

So I recklessly booked this and didn't think anything of it (despite not being a massive fan of flying/heights) and I won't lie, I was feeling pretty nauseous en route to the place. Once they geared me up and briefed us on safety precautions, we got into the plane and begin ascending to 15000 ft (we chose this option as... More

Thank you so much to the team at skydive Taupo, I was anxious but the excellent team and my instructor Marley calmed my nerves and made the experience an unforgettable and amazing one!! Definitely worth diving from 15000 all the way at the top and want to do it again! Will recommend to friends and family!

I did skydive with Skydive Taupo and I have to say I would never do it again with them. The limousine driver was trying to convince me to do it and so he said at the lowest price you could get free pictures taken while skydiving. It ended up you have to pay 129 bucks for those pictures which were... More

Clearly, after having booked your skydive and while travelling to the drop zone in the limousine, you became confused regarding the photo and video packages available. I would suggest that you did not book with us, because you thought you would receive a free photo, due to the fact that any conversation with the limousine driver took place after you... More

Really good fun! I went with the kiwi experience and it was very windy the day I went. However once the wind died down we could go up! They let you chose the music for your video and take loads of photos. Recommend getting the handy cam option. I advise saving up lots of money as it's quite pricey (but... More

No pressure to book more than what I wanted even tho I went with the Full Monty, it was my first jump! I will be jumping again and hope to return to... More

What a great experience I had skydiving for the first time at Taupo. The staff was awesome & my instructor was FANTASTIC. The scenery from 12,000 feet was INCREDIBLE!! They offer a variety of video/photo packages with your jump. The price was great compared to what it costs in the US

What a fabulous experience. We were picked up in a limo from our hotel and taken to the centre (because, why not?). We'd asked to dive on two separate trips, my husband and me, as we had our kids along. I went first, and although I opted for just the dive with no pictures/ videos, there was no pressure on...
