Never in my wildest dreams did I expect this experience to be so amazing. Kudos to Skydive Fox Glacier and my tandem jumper Rob! They made this an unforgettable event, with breathtaking views while ‘flying’ high in the sky. Two thumbs up!!

13,000 foot tandem jump. One of the best experiences of my life. Professional operation that was efficient yet safe. They didn’t waste time but I still felt safe. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Had a great jump with skydive fox. Unfortunately it was quite overcast so didn't get the best view. Awesome paint job on the plane and all the staff are super friendly.
