Once you’re done exploring the Bay of Plenty on foot, discover it from a different perspective with this tandem skydive from 12,000 feet. Savor otherwise-inaccessible views of Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, White Island and more – you can even see all the way out to Mount Taranaki on a good day! At 12,000 feet, experience the thrill of free-falling in safety with your instructor in charge of your parachute.

See the summery Bay of Plenty from a different perspective – as you’re freefalling from 10,000 feet in the air! It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time skydiver: on this tandem skydive, learn as you go as you fall with your instructor, who takes the lead and offers personalized guidance when you want to take over. Enjoy bird’s-eye views of local landmarks, from Maunganui and White Island close by to the Rotorua Lakes, Mount Ruapehu and, if the visibility’s good, even Mount Taranaki.

I had a great experience with the support from the whole crew. It was totally worth it driving from Auckland to Tauranga for this. I was made aware of all the jump steps and I had no issues at all. 100% recommended

Sorry the landing area is a little tight here so we don't currently do sports jumps or teach to skydive.
