If you have ever wanted to skydive, you have just found the bulls eye. This is the place


New Zealand's most spectacular skydive!

So what are you waiting for...? "The skies are calling".

Surrounded by New Zealand's highest mountains on one flank, with the spectacular glaciers and lush rainforest, and then panning to the stunning wild blue Tasman sea framing the other side.

As someone who is scared of heights, I was filled with a combination of fear and dread! Watching as the first two groups take off into the air and get smaller and smaller until your scanning the skies for a small yellow spek that is the plane. All of a sudden a white spek appears then a second then a third, your see the parachutes fill with air and the jumpers gracefully land on the ground, that doesn't look so bad, then it's your turn... You suit up climb onto the plane and try not to look immediately down at the increasing distance between you and the ground. Then all of a sudden the engines slow the door flys open and you shuffle to the door, is this really happening!! Within moments your launched out of the plane and hurtling down the air soaring past your face. The views are incredible!! The southern alps to your right the rainforests in front and the endless sea to your left. And like that the shutes opens and the rush of air stops, its over and now a gentle decent to the ground and you instantly want to climb into the plane for another go you pinch yourself, did that really just happen? Why were you so worried? That was incredible can I go again?!?

Amazing experience

Thank you for this amazing day. That was an incredible experience ! The staff is really kind, friendly, professional before, during and even after the skydive. Franz Joseph is probably the best place to skydive. You can see montains, lakes, rivers, sea everything a the same time. I really recommand it !!!!!

probably try 20000ft next time

First experience. Prefer to see the snow mountains, the glacier and the sea. That's why I choose them. Unfortunately, too much cloud and had to jump from 9000ft. But still a good experience. Professional and friendly staffs. Can get your videos on the day.

Absolutely epic!

We went on a partly cloudy day, but still got to see Mt. Cook and the Alps above the clouds. Full plane and full excitement, it was most of our first dives that day. The instructor was very helpful and really sweet and even let me steer the chute on the way down!
