The Team at Franz Josef Skydive were all amazing. Could not fault anything. They kept you up to date with what was going on and made you feel really safe when you were about to throw yourself out of a plane

What an absolutely amazing experience!! The two ladies working at Skydive Franz are absolutely lovely and were excited as we were. Unfortunately after going up in the plane in the morning we had to land as cloud came rolling in, so we were rescheduled for in the afternoon. Although it was pretty nerve wracking it actually made me feel calmer for the afternoon and the team were all so nice and encouraging about it. Put it this way - we had a little scenic flight too! The actual skydive was just incredible, it was my first time and I felt so safe and can’t wait to do more skydives in the future now. If you can stretch your budget I’d highly recommend having the full video package, having footage and pictures of me skydiving in front of the insane backdrop is so special, as skydives are over so quickly it’s nice to have something to show others and to watch back and remember. Thank you team!!

From booking through to the landing all of the staff that I interacted with were amazing. The jump itself was a fantastic experience. For my first skydive, I couldn't have picked a better location. Glaciers, rainforest, beach; what more could you ask for

Can’t begin to describe how amazing this whole experience is! The staff and jump itself are both hands down absolutely amazing. Will give you a rush like no other. Surrounded by amazing scenery, it feels like you are jumping into a painting! The crew are amazing, so professional but great sense of humor and comforting to those who are nervous. Cannot recommend this enough. Will 110% be doing this again at some stage. If you’re not sold on this, trust me, it will be one of the most thrill seeking adrenaline pumping things you do in this breathtaking spot of NZ!!

What a experience! I did the 20,000 feet jump and it was the most beautiful place to do it! My jumper buddy was so cool! He made me feel excited and was like I was doing it with my best friend 🤣. All staff were lovely. Well worth the four days I stayed waiting for the weather to permit but then got a stunner day ☺️. Highly recommend!
