Owner description: "With a backdrop of the Southern Alps, Glaciers, Rainforest and the Ocean, it's hard to imagine a better place to jump out of a plane than Fox Glacier" Quote from The Lonely Planet.We have to agree! You can choose from 13,000ft or 16,500ft with a range of photo and video options to choose from and a great friendly crew, we guarantee you a jump to remember.

My daughter who is 17 years of age went for sky diving at 12,000 ft. We booked with SkyDive NZ. As a mum I was scared but after chatting with the team I was comfortable. The owner is a Skydive examiner and after much questioning I was quite satisfied (still scared on the inside). They are professionals and take their job very seriously. Till my daughter came down I was praying but she had an awesome time. For the adventure type of people its something you must try and you will enjoy!!! its very expensive though!!

This was the first skydive in my life and - although I was scared to death - in the end I really enjoyed it and had much fun! Nic was very helpful and guided me very well. I felt as safe as I could in such a situation. The views of the Fox Glacier were kind of an added value which I wouldn't miss if I were you. Skydiving in Queenstown is most probably fun as well. But again, I think the views there can't compete with Fox Glacier. Try it out! You will love it!

Our pilot was the best and the whole trip was far too short!!! If we'd had the money we would have gone again and again!

Did a tandem skydive for the, 1st time from 16000 ft,, absolutely brilliant. The staff were very friendly and cheerful. I felt like i was in safe hands, especially Nick, who talked me through everything and made me feel at ease. What an amazing experience, the views were just stunning.
I would recommend them to anyone. My husband jumped as well and was equally pleased. Thanks guys.

Been wanting to do a dive for years, and this is definitely the place to do it - the scenery is breathtaking. Throughout my jump, I was strapped to Olly, who kept me entertained with a bit of banter and got some cracking pictures. Before jumping, we got to fly over Fox Glacier and had a look at Mt. Tasman and Mt. Cook. One for the bucket list
