Amazing scenery from 16500 feet, you can see the ocean along with the beaches, the rainforests and at the same time in the distant you can behold the glaciers and snowy mountaintops. How SICK is that!? Also very relaxed but extremely professional skydivers working there....More

My husband is 58 years old and I am 53. We want to sky dive from 19000 ft. We are healthy but have mild B.P. which is under control. Please advise is it okay for us to sky dive from 19000 ft.

Hi, If your blood pressure is under control, there is no reason why should not be able to do the jump. Hope to see you soon. Regards Mark Skydive Fox Glacier

Is there a weight restriction for someone to jump?
21 January 2017|
Answer
Response from Skydive-Fox G | Property representative |
Hi Lesley, Due to certification limits on the equipment, we have to have a maximum passenger weight of 120KG. We do require that anyone over 100KG be assessed by one of our senior staff to ensure that they can safely jump.
