First skydive ever today, and it was the most amazing experience. Chris was an awesome person to have jump with me! He kept me feeling calm and so safe! I can't even put into words how I'm feeling right now. I will definitely be back for more!

Very pleased that you had a great time. Coincidentally, Chris had just completed his 10,000th jump last week, having made his first tandem jump at 9 years old! Thankyou for the review and I will pass this on to Chris and the team. More

Skydive Taupo team was fantastic. It was my first jump and being Fifty five years old , you tend to shake but no not there. The team oozed with Confidence and in the plane, they were even better. The experience is one I would treasure and would jump again. But I will be doing the 15k next time. Thanks team
