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.

Reviewed April 10, 2012

The lads at Skydive New Zealand made it so easy to jump from the plane in a tandem dive. This was my first jump, a gift from my son, and we jumped together. f you take the 16,000 ft drop you get the extra scenery and amazing views of Fox Glacier, Mount Cook and Mount Tasman. I highly recommend Ollie and Nic, our Instructors....if you have to have a man strapped to your back, these are the guys!

Hey there and thanks so much for your review. What a great idea for a father/son bonding session!! There's not much that can draw you closer together than the thrill of jumping out of a plane and you went to the top floor aswell!

Thanks again guys

“AWESOME”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

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!!

“The thrill of a skydive combined with wonderful views”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

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!

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

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!

“An awesome experiece”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

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.
