3rd time I've skydived, first time here. Was my first activity in NZ. Walked in and got on the next jump. Super fun and friendly staff. Professional and Safe. Would jump here again. Got lucky and had great views of the Alps and Mt Cook.

It was one of the best experience I`d ever been in my life. The staff are very kind, my "beautiful stranger" (instructor) Emma and the photographer were amazing!!! I felt very secure and could enjoy the stunning view! I highly recommend.
