“Amazing Skydive”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

My first ever skydive and it was the most beautiful place to do it with views of the mountains, lakes, glacier and ocean from the plane on our ascent. The guides were friendly, fun and very good at what they do. I really recommend purchasing either the photos or the video of your jump too as some of the footage that your guide captures is amazing/incredibly scenic. I only jumped from 12,000 feet but that was still enough for around 40 seconds of freefall - more than enough for my first jump! Really recommend jumping with these guys.

“Excellent first skydive”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Highly recommend these guys - the staff are friendly and professional and the location is great with the airstrip on the edge of town near the Top10 Holiday Park. I did the 16,000ft skydive for $399 and thoroughly enjoyed it - the views of the mountains and glaciers during the flight and free fall are stunning. My wife was also allowed to travel for free in the van to the landing site to meet me and take pictures which was a nice touch. There was no pressure whatsoever to buy pictures from the company which are very expensive but to be fair, comparable with other companies.

“Awesome skydive!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The view while skydiving is just amazing; snow capped mountains, green forests and the deep blue sea. You hardly get more anywhere else. The only downside is that the photos are taken by a GoPro on the instructors arm. The photos/video is decent but not worth the money. Particularly the extra costs for video is ridiculous because it's just a camera setting!! Other than this it's all fine, staff are really friendly too.
