Sadly I was unable to jump with Skydive Fox Glacier as the weather play nicely for us. However, the team at SDFG were very professional in managing my expectations even suggesting other sky dives along my travels in NZ. We waited to see if it was possible for the following couple of days but it wasn't to be. Again, the... More

I was booked in for an early jump but unfortunately, the weather had other ideas. They kept me informed throughout the day as to the conditions and the likelihood of the jump going ahead. Finally, at around 5pm, we were kitted up and making our way to the flight. Though I was wondering why I was about to jump out... More

The team at Skydive Fox Glacier are great, friendly and accommodating (we had bad weather on the day we booked but they managed to fit us in the next morning!). I did the 16500ft jump and can highly recommend it. The plane ride up there is amazing in itself, as you go above Mt Cook and Mt Tasman.

Thank you Mark for making my first skydive so enjoyable! Your company is truly professional but makes the process personal. Nothing was rushed not did it feel as if I was on a conveyor belt of clients!I felt safe at each stage of the dive, from the safety briefing right through to the landing. I give you and your company... More

A fantastic company that we can only recommend. My girlfriend and I had to Skydive for the first time in our life, and we were a bit nervous on the 28th of February. Their staff was very friendly and supportive which helped us relax a lot. Through the entire process they explained what they were doing, and what was going... More

Very cool experience. The crew is professional, nice and helpful. Absolutely worth the money....in my opinion 13000 feet is enough. 16000 is 20 seconds more time free fall but I think it's better to spend the money on video and pics - they are amazing!
