From the pickup in central Auckland to my jump out of the plane at 13000ft it was perfect! The team is super helpful and Nam my tandem instructor did his best to calm my nerves - he was successful and the freefall and views are amongst the best experiences I had in New Zealand so far.

I recently had the opportunity to make my first skydiving jump. I chose to jump from 16,500 feet and it did not disappoint. For all of those people afraid of heights, just take a leap of faith. I jumped with Mitch, who made me feel absolutely comfortable with jumping out of a plane. His experience and number of jumps eased... More

Was fearful and nervously excited but Mick was upbeat and reassuring. Thought I would have my eyes shut but found the freefall and blue skies exhilarating. Staff and process so efficient and the take home photos and dvd highly amusing for all the family to enjoy afterwards.

What an experience to jump above Auckland. Seriously Auckland skydive is so underrated. The view you have whilst you have your free fall is incredibly beautiful. The west/ east coast and the harbor, the Skytower from the distance, Piha beach everything was just so fascinating. I jumped with Mitch - such a great guy, proper kiwi, made me laugh, knew... More
