Arrived at the allotted time, watched the safety video and within 15 mins was all strapped up ready to go. My instructor "Danny" was very thorough and professional and all the staff were very friendly. It was only a small aircraft so it was a bit tight for room when getting ready to jump, but we got there and off... More

I purchased a grabone deal to do tandem 12000ft jump, definitely the most exhilarating experience. Great customer service at front desk considering i was 2hrs late for my jump as i travelled from AKL, worth the trip up BUT "dont be late". The only downside is the vid/pic, not good value for my money, the final edit was very low... More

Situated at the Whangarei Airport, we went up to 12,000 ft. in a tiny aircraft. The weather was really hot, so we were able to jump in our own clothes - shorts & T shirt. The views from the plane were outstanding and the professional divers, to whom we were strapped, wer great fun and gave us lots of confidence.... More

Did this for a specific purpose, to promote my debut poetry book, Brave Vulnerable, but I ended up achieving far more than that. It was a personal, mind-blowing, symbolic experience. Aside from the funny looking head gear, everything was awesome. Nerve-racking, tummy churning for the first 3-5 seconds of the fall, but if that wasn't 'flying' the rest of the... More

First time jump and couldn't have been in safer hands. Video expensive for what it is but they do get good footage. Would recommend to others

Took my husband and son for a skydive today and they had the most amazing experience. Kelly and her team are so warm and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and the whole place has such a terrific atmosphere. Safety is of paramount importance and everything was explained really well. Sadly both boys forgot to "banana" on exiting the plane... More
