“Mindblowing” 5 of 5 bubbles
Review of Skydive Kaikoura Ltd

Skydive Kaikoura Ltd
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Experience the extreme rush of tandem skydiving in New Zealand by doing a skydive over Kaikoura’s breathtaking coastal and alpine scenery. The best the North and South Island have to offer!Powered only by gravity you will freefall at 200kph and be simply jumping for joy from the whole experience. We are not a “factory” type skydiving centre so can promise you an “adrenaline rush” without hurrying you through the process. We appreciate that everyone is different and have confidence in saying we provide New Zealand’s most personal skydiving experience! Instruction is offered in English, Dutch, German and the odd word of Kiwi slang!

“Mindblowing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

My son dove while I watched. He loved every second (except the 12 hrs before when he wasn't sure he was doing the right thing!) and watching him was just thrilling. The pictures they took are incredible. He will NEVER forget this experience and the staff was so personable.

“Great Fun - I'd Do it Again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2011

I did a tandem parashute jump with Henk and had a great time. We had a gorgeous clear day, the mountains were beautiful. There were pods of dolphins as we were coming down -- I HIGHLY recommend Skydive Kaikoura. I felt informed, safe and excited and I loved the entire experience.

“Amazing hospitality, Breathtaking experiences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2011

Henk and Sarah run a fantastic business. They are amazing people that go out of their way to make you feel at home and comfortable. They are very professional and organised, and just so happen to have the only skydiving company in the most beautiful part of New Zealand! If you are to go skydiving anywhere in NZ, it would have to be Kaikoura with Skydive Kaikoura Ltd.

“OMG, that was the thrill of a lifetime!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2010

Henk and Sarah go out of their way to ensure you are completely aware and comfortable with your choice of adventure. This is not a decision to take lightly, but if you decide to go, Skydive Kaikoura is, without any doubt, the right place to go and take the biggest "Leap of Faith" you will ever experience.... until you do it again!! :)

Thanks so much for giving us such a memory.

BTW, i am writing this review a full 10 months after we took our jump, it is still a highlite and we still watch the video with amazement at how much fun the experience was.

Truly amazing!!
