See for yourself why skydiving is the ultimate bucket-list activity! Jump with Taupo Tandem Skydiving and know you are skydiving with the best in New Zealand. We have the best priced skydive in New Zealand, with jump heights from 9,000 ft,12, 000ft or 15,000 ft. Choose your height, get ready to jump, and experience the surreal feeling that is freefall!
We are New Zealand’s original tandem drop zone, and since opening in 1992, we have skydived over 200,000 people!
Skydiving isn’t something you do every day (unless you’re one of our tandem masters!), so we make sure that you have the best experience possible. We pride ourselves on having exceptional customer service so that you feel safe, secure, and relaxed before having the most fun of your life! We are proud to be the #1 Rated Skydive in NZ on TripAdvisor, as well as the #1 Rated Outdoor Activity in Taupo. Pretty impressive right?
When you arrive at our dropzone, you will check in and get a briefing on our different jump heights and safety procedures. One of our crew will get you suited up and ready for your jump, and then you will get to meet your tandem master! You will have a moment to get to know one another before he walks you to the plane and straps himself onto you like a giant backpack. Now you're ready for take-off!
Once in the air, you will get to take in breathtaking views of the Central Plateau. No matter what jump height you choose, your adrenaline will be pumping by now! Once you have reached altitude, the door will open and your tandem master will shuffle you towards the edge of the door. Take a deep breath because in 3,2,1...he will push you out of the plane and into the fresh air where you will experience a rush like no other – freefall. From 15,000 ft you will have an incredible 60 seconds of freefall where you can take the chance to soak up every moment of the views, the rush, and the adrenaline rush going through your body!
