Get ready for the thrill of a lifetime with New Zealand’s most spectacular, multi award winning high altitude skydive from 9,000ft!


  • An unforgettable tandem skydive over one of the world's most breathtaking scenery.

Jump in our custom built skydive plane as it takes you high up above absolutely stunning southern alpine scenery giving you the most amazing panoramic views of NZ’s highest mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers.
