Unfortunately we didn’t quite reach 13000 feet due to the weather but you wouldn’t notice the difference as a customer - it’s still an amazingly thrilling experience, with absolutely beautiful scenery! Special thanks to Rodriguez and Peter for getting us down safely!

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect this experience to be so amazing. Kudos to Skydive Fox Glacier and my tandem jumper Rob! They made this an unforgettable event, with breathtaking views while ‘flying’ high in the sky. Two thumbs up!!

13,000 foot tandem jump. One of the best experiences of my life. Professional operation that was efficient yet safe. They didn’t waste time but I still felt safe. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Fox Glacier does not have 19,000ft available but I believe Franz Josef does have that option available

Hi, If your blood pressure is under control, there is no reason why should not be able to do the jump. Hope to see you soon. Regards Mark Skydive Fox Glacier
