We booked a 16.500 feet jump on a very sunny and clear day. We were actually fortunate enough to see all the way over to the north island. The staff was excellent, helping us with questions, fitting equipment etc. During the ride up ti 16.500 feet the tandem masters pointed different scenic locations and were generally calming.

Wonderful views. I had never done this before and my jump master (Scruffy) managed to make me feel comfortable immediately - and then when we jumped the feeling is not describeable. Just try

I wasn't going to leave NZ without doing a skydive, and after a few failed attempts in Queenstown, I finally got to do it here! I booked the 16000 ft dive and the fine weather gave me the go ahead. After filling in a form, watching a safety video, and (if you've paid for it) choosing your background music for... More

We made a booking online for two, then on the day increased that to three. The crew were throughly professional, starting with a really honest brief by one of the reception staff as to what we should expect who had only recently done her own first few tandem jumps. This was refreshing rather than having someone with thousands of jumps... More

Professional staff and that helps you to one of the best days in your life! 👌👍 I did it from the height of 16k feet which is the one I recommend. A thing like this, you should go all in.

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
