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!

I went to Kaikoura after skydiving at Lake Taupo and was amazed with the scenario. Henk, the skydiver and Sarah,( the real owner and Henks wife ) were very nice and 100% professional. Its not a normal comercial skydive, its a experience. Do not missed.

“Great company!”
Reviewed August 8, 2009

This company is young but very good and personal. You can easily apply on internet and they responded us within a few hours. Henk is a very experienced skydiver and very funny! The view from the air is amazing, you can even see the northern island and sometimes whales and dolphins. The best spot to plan your skydive and cheaper than other ones.

“For 1st time jumpers, this is THE place to take the plunge”
Reviewed August 4, 2009

Beautiful Kaikoura seems to be overshadowed by better-known places such as Taupo and Queenstown in the guidebooks. However, if you want a New Zealand adventure with fewer fellow tourists, this locale cannot be overlooked. A perfect example is Skydive Kaikoura, where Sarah, Hank, and Joseph will tailor your experience to suit everyone from the nervous to the foolhardy and make it a thrilling, fun experience as well. Not only did we realize a lifetime desire to skydive, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. These are great people and I'd recommend them to my own mother for her first jump. A wonderful experience with good folks in a breathtaking place; it doesn't get any better than this.
To the Skydive Kaikoura team, you deserve the best in life. Thanks so much,
Lera and Matt

Skydiving is a fantastic thing to do anywhere in the world, however Skydive Kaikoura has it all!! Snow capped mountains of the seaward kaikoura ranges and beyond, sprawling farm land, the amazing Kaikoura paninsula and of course the stunning pacific ocean! You may be lucky enough to spot some of the locals such as Sperm Whales, Dusky Dolphins, New Zealand Fur Seals....as your going to the airstrip or from the plane or maybe as you plumit to the ground at a rate of nots!!

“Skydive Kaikoura is a MUST DO!”
Reviewed July 27, 2009

We had a blast. Kaikoura is so beautiful from the ground, imagine what it looks like from 12,000ft! We loved it and really appreciate everything Henk and Sarah did, through their professionalism and great spirit, to make our experience so awesome. Henk has an amazing enthusiasm that made each of our dives feel personal and special. They're truly a fabulous company run by fabulous people. We recommend them to everyone!
