What to expect

Experience the thrill of a 16,500 ft Skydive (60+ seconds freefall) Above the Westland and Aoraki/Mt Cook National Parks’ which form part of the Te Wāhipounamu - South West New Zealand World Heritage Area. Tandem skydiving is the fastest, easiest and safest way for an inexperienced skydiver to enjoy the thrill of jumping out of a plane, free-falling through the sky at 200kph/120mph, and floating safely to the ground under a parachute.

The system includes a harness and parachute system for both the passenger and the instructor to share, so you can simply enjoy the thrill of the experience knowing your instructor has everything under control. Nestled between New Zealand’s highest mountains, the Tasman Sea, stunning temperate rainforest, glowing glaciers, mirror lakes, and braided river beds, Franz Josef Glacier has been described as one of the most beautiful places on earth. For this reason and many others, the region was included in the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area.
