In general, the summer months of December to February tend to be the most popular time to skydive, as the weather is typically warm and sunny. Experience an extraordinary skydive above Aoraki / Mt. Cook, Franz Josef & Fox Glacier, and Abel Tasman.

For those of you who have never skydived before, you wont be doing your first jump by yourself. Your Tandem Master will be there with you through the whole experience and you will be strapped to the front of them from the moment you take the leap out of the plane to free fall, all the way until you land safely under the canopy. For the more experienced skydivers, we offer AFF courses and licences to get you experience and progress to your first solo skydive.
