The skydive itself is worth the experience. The instructors and the camera man was awesome. However, there had been a problem with the video editing. The sounds turned out to have a bit of noise while one of my friend's photo was not included but was later sent thru dropbox. Some of my friend's video had to be sent back... More

Although I've done a fair bit of flying before, doing a skydive was something that was always on my bucket list. Arrived as part of a group tour (Haka Tours) on 23rd February and elected to do the 16,500ft jump with the full video package. I Jumped with 'DM' (according to the video - a long time ago and I...

I chose to do my first every skydive with Skydive Abel Tasman because of the beautiful views of mountains and ocean in Abel Tasman National Park. I was not disappointed! The staff was friendly, especially the shuttle driver, and helpful. I felt very safe and since I jumped during low season, I did not feel rushed. My tandem master had... More

An incredible place to do your skydive in NZ. Very beautiful and you are in good hands. There was one Tandem diver instructor who was very friendly who my wife had.

This was the greatest but also scariest thing ever! Its an indescribable feeling with great views! The Abel Tasman is a great location for your skydive! You get incredible views of NZ's best national parks! The staff were super nice and make you feel comfortable about jumping out of a plane. Seriously consider this as your skydive location!
