Life at its Best -Skydive Franz
Sooooo glad I went with Franz for my first skydive adventure! The views and pictures I received were PHENOMENAL!!!! I LOVED my tandem instructor Robbie. I felt safe and secure the whole time with him at my back. Thank you SkydiveFranz for an amazing first but not last skydive adventure. 💙💙💙

Mar 2020 • Couples
They put you at ease. My tandem guide was Riley he was super professional and reassuring. The set up and check in was straight forward.

The video was really good quality and awesome to see riley doing a backflip and spin when we left the plane. Made for some great photos

The NICEST guys around
Oct 2019
Disclaimer: We couldn't do the skydive due to crappy weather BUT... Am specifically writing this comment to commend the team at Sky Dive FJ. We had been in Franz Joseph and Fox for a couple of days. Despite our Skydive getting cancelled due to bad weather, the team constantly helped us every step of the way to get a dive in. We must have bugged them over and over again and still they tried their level best to help us do other activities yet keep us in front of the line and informed about our potential dive. Given that this jump is likely to guarantee stunning views and has the nicest team we have come across, this is a must do for anyone for the entire experience. Shouts to both Lilly and Sandy who went out of their way to help us and take back tremendous goodwill despite not getting to jump. Thanks guys.

Best experience ever
Aug 2019
After three days of waiting (because of bad weather) we finally got to jump. It was for me and my girlfriend our first time. We wanted to jump from 20 000 ft but it was to cold up there (-32° brrrr) so we could 'only' jump from 16 500. The staff was really helpful and professional. We loved it. Both nervous but after jumping out of the plane, all the stress disappeared. We took the video and photo option. And it is really worth the money. Thanks again.

Better than Awesome
Apr 2019 • Couples
I had an amazing skydive with a 70 second free fall on my recent trip to NZ. The instructors are very confident and have a relaxed demeanor which made me feel comfortable on my first skydive. They were straight to the point about everything that I really had no questions. My guide was totally helpful and awesome. She led me through everything and was so cool and collected about it all. I absolutely loved my video and photos that I received the next day. I would highly recommend that if you want an inexplicable, thrilling experience with amazing views, then go with this particular company in Franz Josef. I would also recommend to get the video with the photos bundle because they turned out amazing! You really won't regret it. This is a memory that will be at the top of my list forever!

A must-do!!! Amazing, safe experience with top class instructors
Nov 2018 • Couples
I was extremely nervous about doing this skydive as me and heights don't go together (still don't why I did it!). However, it is one of the standout moments for me of my travels around NZ. We had originally booked in to do the 20,000ft skydive but unfortunately, the weather conditions didn't permit this. Instead, we did the 16,500ft dive. My guide JT was incredible!!!!!!!! He listens to my million questions and totally put me at ease. He was brilliant and I cannot praise him enough. The scenery on the way down was simply breathtaking and the photos and video I purchased were worth it. I would 100% recommend using this company. Their professionalism and friendliness throughout was brilliant.

If I could give it 500/5 I would!
Huge thanks to Julian for guiding me through my first skydive. I was pretty nervous but he was informative, funny and reassuring at all times. Completely hassle free process booking with Sandy and the lady in reception was an absolute angel. Would 100% skydive here again- it’s basically like paragliding, flying and a heli tour all in one!

One of the most empowering experiences of my life
A huge thank you to Henry and the team! To say I was terrified is an understatement. I don’t even go on rollercoasters or Ferris Wheels. I wanted to do this to experience something different but more importantly to conquer one of my biggest fears. I wish I could bottle up the feeling of empowerment and take it with me for the rest of my days.

Henry was so understanding and kind. It was because of him that I jumped out of that plane. He didn’t force me to do it but asked me to trust him...and I did. Thank you to Henry and Jordan for being kind and compassionate when I needed it most. I will never forget this experience.
