What to expect
Take a 20-minute plane ride to altitude where you'll then leap from a plane with your tandem master. Freefall for up to 45 seconds above Lake Taupo where you can take in stunning views of mountains, volcanoes, scenery from Lord of The Rings and all the wonders of the Central North Island. After the freefall, your tandem master will deploy the parachute where you can enjoy a 5-7 minute parachute ride back to ground where you get to enjoy everything you just achieved! Land back at the dropzone for some high-5's and hugs... because you just completed a skydive!

The Most Epic thing I have Ever Done in my Life
May 2021
I said it once, and I'll say it again, this was the most amazing thing I have ever done in my whole life!!! I reserved my spot for free and had the option to choose what height I wanted when I walked in. The staff at the desk were super friendly and just as pumped as I was to complete my life long bucket list dream! My Tandem Master Damian was so comforting, kind, and made sure I was ready to go! Everything was very self-explanatory and Damian made sure to get the best photos before the jump, during, and the landing. I can't stop looking at the amazing photos!! The free falling was the best feeling in the world and the views are fantastic. Damian also threw in some parachute spins in there for me. All and all if this is something you want to do, DO IT! And what better location then Lake Taupo...absolutely stunning views on a perfect sunny day and you can't get over how large the lake is and seeing Mt. Doom!! Beyond epic! Thank you everyone at TTS I can't wait to come back someday and conquer the 18,500ft skydive!

Amazing experience! One happy 12 year old and mum!!
Apr 2021 • Family
Review from Logan (age 12- skydive was his 12th birthday present) andrew was the best- he even let me steer the parachute!
(Review from mum- really appreciated the effort that Andrew and Jaron made to put us at ease) logan is desperate to jump again tomorrow! Brilliant company- we even got picked up in the bright yellow hummer for a classy entrance.. what an amazing morning, would definitely recommend Taupo tandem Skydive for all whether novices or experienced.
Staff all really helpful, Andrew and Jaron amazing!

Best Birthday skydive ever!

Elad was the best skydiver to jump with! He made my birthday awesome. He was funny, kind and super friendly and made me feel less nervous for my first skydive!

So glad Elad made your birthday one to remember! The instructors are very good at helping to ease the nerves so I'm glad you felt in good hands - it's not everyday you get to jump out of a perfectly good plane! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your birthday festivities :)

BEST experience EVER!
Apr 2021
The best experience ever! Staff are cool and super friendly, and my tandem master Andrew Godfrey was super fun, helpful and an amazing fella! Made me feel really safe and relaxed through the whole process, a true legend! Couldn't recommend it more, if you have the chance to experience the craziest and most relaxing feeling ever definitely head to TTS and make the best out of being alive!!!

Awesome!
Mar 2021
The Taupo team were thoroughly professional and friendly. We really felt we were in safe hands as all the equipment was checked and checked again . We had good clear instructions. My dive master Damian was great. He was cool and calm and talked me through what was going to happen and as it did happen. My husband loved the free fall most. I loved it more after the parachute was out and it was a beautiful experience. We’re in our 70s and we didn’t scream like some younger people did but we enjoyed it just as much as them.
Thanks Taupo dive team. We definitely recommend you.

À dream come true
Mar 2021 • Solo
An amazing experience ! I have been dreaming of skydiving since I was a child. Thanks to Taupo Tandem Skydiving it’s now a dream come true. The experience a affordable and I even ended up jumping from higher than I expected. I also took the media package to have souvenirs. Every member of the team and especially my tandem master Ian Tomkinson were extremely kind. I was feeling nervous but they had the good words to reassure me. Also I had motion sickness and they have been very helpful for that too.
The free fall is fantastic and I enjoyed a great view on the mountains around, including Mount Taranaki. I will definitely do it again If I come back in Taupo !!

This is awesome super happy you've been able to tick skydiving off your list :-) we are definitely very lucky to have some epic views from altitude of most of the central North Island. Great to hear our staff and Ian took great care of you and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future :-) #blueskies

Fabulous, would recommend to anyone thinking about it
Feb 2021
Aged 73, the most daring thing I have done in my life. It was absolutely fabulous. Really enjoyed free fall and the views all around. Was a bit worried about getting out of plane but Jarod Rahui made me feel safe and calm and we were out of plane before I had too much time to think about it.

Do it!
Feb 2021
Hands down the most amazing thing I’ve ever done.. if you’re contemplating whether to do it or not.. do it! You won’t regret it. The whole team were super friendly and my diving instructor Dawie was amazing! He could see i was pretty nervous to begin with but made me feel totally at ease and safe in his hands. All 4 of us who jumped absolutely loved it, best day I’ve had in New Zealand to date! Thanks to all the team for making our experience so cool 😊
