This was my 3rd skydive ( I previously went in Sydney, Aus & Canada). This skydive was BY FAR the best one I've ever done. The staff are super friendly, triple check your safety gear and answer any questions I had about the landscape and the dive. This is a great way to see Mt. Cook, Franz Joseph Glacier & fox glacier as the plane ride up to the desired height provides a spectacular view of the Tasman Sea, glaciers and the mountains. I live in beautiful Canadian Rockies and I have never seen that close of a view of the mountain and glaciers before. I had friends that skydived in Taupo, Able Tasman and Wanaka and they all got pictures. If your mission is just to jump out of the plane, then those places are okay. BUT my photo over the MOUNTAINS was SO MUCH BETTER than anyone's pictures of fields or a lake in the background. Also Red Bull has ranked Skydiving Franz Josep, one of the best/insane places to skydive in the world. Tips: If you have the budget for photos - purchase the Personal Photographer package. The pictures the extra jumper take are fantastic and make for a great souvenir. Also, the height doesn't matter too much. The difference between the 13,000 ft & 16, 500 ft & 20,000 ft is the higher you jump the longer you spend in the plan and you only get a few more seconds of freefall for each height difference. MONEY TIP - Jump 13, 000 and buy the Personal Photographer is you best value for money according to the staff and I could not agree anymore. I went 16, 500 and the free fall wasn't;t that much difference then the 13, 000.

First time skydiving and Prashant helped make it an incredible experience. Splashed out on the video package and the big jump but wouldn’t do it any other way. Got slightly nervous when the breathing masks were necessary but Prashant kept up a casual rapport that inspires confidence. Felt totally relaxed right up until we left the plane! Unbelievable experience, would recommend to anyone.

Paid for a sky dive and got exactly what I wanted. The staff were very accommodating and helpful and would recommend the staff and the location to skydive to anyone (awesome views) They even let me self drive to the airstrip to allow me to get away promptly for other activities I had planned for the day.
