The view was amazing, the instructors were very reassuring (this was my first skydive) and I felt well looked after from take off to landing. The parachute opened which was an excellent thing. The view was spectacular and I don't know if any other skydive will be able to beat it.

I did the 16,500 ft jump with a friend (both first timers) and had absolutely no regrets! The guys jumping with us made us feel unexpectedly calm and confident. The views are ridiculously incredible, seeing out to Fox glacier, the sea and mountains at that height. Absolutely go for it if you get the chance!

Was on honey moon trip and this Sky dive definitely made it unforgettable. The peak of our nz experience! We were very nervous and decided at the very last minute. The 16500 ft view is certainly worthwhile.

Thanks Rachel for the review, and congratulations on doing the skydive despite being nervous! We agree the view from 16500ft is particularly stunning this time of year with the snow capped mountains. I hope the rest of your honeymoon was just as amazing! More

I've done a tandem skydive before at home in the UK, but it came nowhere near to the amazing experience of jumping on a clear day at Fox with views of snow capped mountains, Glaciers, rainforest and beaches below. It was almost half the cost what I paid in the UK to boot. The guys who run it were friendly... More
