So jumping out of a plane!!!! We went as a group for a friend's birthday and as novice jumpers were soooo nervous. Our jump was postponed several times due to the weather but hey that is comforting to know that they just won't let tourist jump out of planes in any old conditions. The staff were great putting our fears... More

The jump was fantastic and all was well with staff until I got my video. Paid $239 for my video and pictures and when I went to watch video they had cut over all the voice and original video sound with a song of their choice. They also cut out parts of the video. When I informed them I wanted... More

We called last minute because our jump got cancelled in Queenstown, and they offered us a jump for the sunset, which was amazing. The instructors are locals and make you feel very safe the whole time.

This was a slick operation from start to finish: communication pre-jump was good, the instructors were both friendly and professional in their approach and the equipment appeared very modern and well-maintained. I thoroughly enjoyed my jump and my wallet was the only part of me that felt unsafe. Great job guys!

My wife, two kids (19 & 16) and I did our first tandem skydive as a family and it was awesome and breathtaking! The crew took safety as their priority and it was not about trying to get as many people out the plane. Our plane took off and circled for a while and the crew decided the conditions were... More

A skydive is a skydive, the staff and the centre and the view is all absolutely amazing. The divemasters are especially awesome and lovely. I never felt uncomfortable or unsafe at all. They only lose 1 point because to simply get GoPro footage that is strapped to your tandem masters hand is roughly 169, which IMO is wayyyy too expensive.... More

Jump jump jump out of a moving aircraft at 15000ft strapped to a complete stranger and trusting them to bring you back down to terra firma is seriously one of the best things you could do in your life.

Very friendly ground staff. Pick up and drop off was done well. Allow 3-4 hours for the experience because the wait to jump can be quite long. I jumped with 2 other friends and the different experience levels of the divers really shows. One friend got a really experienced diver that was super proactive and had an awesome experience whereas... More
