Five star experience!

The team were friendly and professional throughout while the skydive was one of the best experiences I've had to date here in New Zealand. I booked the 20,000ft skydive with the media package - would recommend the latter as it's surprisingly difficult to remember everything as there's so much to see on the way down!
