Which Taupo Skydive company? (2 Replies)
I went skydiving in Wanaka this year, and loved it! It was my first time, and was amazing. So I want to repeat the experience but in Taupo this January. I see there are two companies in Taupo. Taupo Tandem Skydiving has HD video (big plus IMHO) and then there's Skydive Taupo. In Wanaka I had the full package, with a separate camera man, which was totally worth it. Would anyone recommend one over the other? Right now I'm leaning towards Taupo Tandem Skydiving for the HD video.

Hey, I did my skydive with Taupo Tandem Skydiving (TTS) and it was incredible! I researched the two a lot before I went, and chose TTS because of the HD video, and also I found out that they were the original drop zone in NZ so I thought that was pretty cool. My tandem master was awesome and they were really nice to my friends who just came to watch. I'd say definitely go with them! Have fun!
