It was my first skydive, I was really super scared. The most scary part is probably the moment before and in the plane. The team is absolutely amazing! They were answering all my questions very patient and doing there very best to make you feel relaxed. I felt very safe. Although I enjoyed the freefall, the moment the parachute openend... More

We were given a form to fill out with important personal details to ensure our health & safety. We were then suited up, briefed... More

This was my first time skydiving but the team here was so organized and safety orientated that I felt in good hands from start to finish. The video (for an additional fee) was well done, my tandem skydiver / instructor Lee was an absolute professional but also a real fun guy which was a great combination. A must do for... More

Without any doubt this is the best…BEST place to skydive in New Zealand with glacier view. The Staff,Facilities all make this place the best. My skydiver was Mark and I got to know that he did 15000 jumps in his life time. Do not let yourself leave New Zealand without this trip. Very experienced staff. Forget the rest do the... More

After our original booking was cancelled due to weather, a very friendly staff member told us to come back if the weather looked good. The next day, we saw a patch of blue sky and headed over to the site! The staff was extremely accommodating. They took pity on us that weather had cancelled many of our activities, and squeezed...

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.
