New Zealand’s Best Piece of Sky
It’s no coincidence we chose Motueka as our location. It’s famous for it’s clear skies and glorious sunshine – right in the heart of the spectacular Abel Tasman region in the South Island. It’s truly the most incredible perspective of New Zealand you could ever wish for and the only tandem skydive where you can see both islands.
