The 19,000ft jump was incredible!! I've done two other skydives before this one and this was worlds above the others! The view over the glaciers is amazing, and the free fall was the best park; unlike other skydives where the free fall starts and finishes in what feels like a flash, this one really feels like you're falling through the...

Our chance of skydive finally came at skydive franz..it was the last place to try before our trip ended. No doubt it is the best place to skydive, apart from being the highest in Newzealand, good and professional jump masters and crew. I am absolutely recommending it.

We did the 19000 foot skydive on 5 Jan and cannot say how much we enjoyed it. Yes it is a lot of money - but for us it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were very lucky as we had a perfectly clear, sunny day so the views on the flight up were just as brilliant as... More

First time diving for the both of us and it was amazing. The tandem jumpers were incredibly professional and such a laugh. They calmed our nerves so much due to their friendly attitude and overall laid back nature. They understood that we were worried (as most people would be) but managed to make us feel safe throughout the whole experience.

I did Tandem Skydiving from 13000 feet height. The team is very professional, friendly, helpful and at the same time funny. I felt very safe and relaxed, because I jumped with a guide that already had 4000 jumps. The receptionists Petra and Julia are awesome ladies with a positive attitude and customer service oriented, Christina is lovely and friendly. The... More
