16,500 feet + video + photo + tshirt.
Felt very safe, well organised, quite short safety instruction to the group but tandem partner explained again in detail. Cool video. No option for extra camera men. Toilets could be cleaner.

We did the 16.500 ft skydive, with Mauro and Nico. Awrsome views on Mt Cook, the Glaciers, the West Coast and the Southern Alps !
The crew was really nice, very efficient and reassuring, which was a good point for newbies like us.
From what we have seen, Skydive Fox applies the lowest prices in South Island.

The 16.500 ft dive is really worth it, so if you wish to experience an amazing skydive, try it with Skydive Fox !

Incredible jump (view over the beach and the glacier) Nice International team, seem very busy during the summer. You are 2-3 maximum per plane. Light preparation but was enough.

Awesome experience with unique views over the beach and the glacier at the same time. Very relaxed and nice team that help you to feel less anxious and enjoy the jump. (The weak point could be the quick preparation.)

Ok.. I had been through what you are thinking right now. And it's actually much less scarier than what u think. I am someone who dare not take roller coaster rides. But skydiving is my must do list before I die. And, it's way much safer than I thought. Just do it. It's really not as scary. Freefall 1-3 seconds as averaged out with my 3 other friends. Skydive fox has one of the best view making every penny worth while.

we were a group of 6 girls that wanted to jump together and manidged to get split up because a different company had a cancelation fee:( we were three girls going to Fox and three gils ended up having to go to Franz. It turned out the other three girls wasn´t even able to jump that same day.. we on the other hand tarrified as we were went to Fox and had a great experience. The staff was really friendly, reasurig and manidge to help us stay calm and give us the best experience. This was our first time and it was just the best! SCARY! but amazing! the view was amazing were u could see the glasier, the beach, mt cook and mt tasmen. The flight up was amazing too! they gave us a guided tour up there and made sure everyone had a great view. i loved my skydive experience because of the firendly staff, that joked around but still made you feel safe and taken care of. They really try their best to give you the best experience too, it´s your skydive not theirs :) SO much fun!!

Best experience ever. Felt completely safe thanks to all the staff. Thank you to Mark and Marie for making me feel at ease, and I know my friend Isabelle felt the same with her partner, Olly. I really didn't expect to do a skydive at all but I'm so glad that I did it here. It was totally relaxed, no time to feel scared. I jumped from 16000 ft and the flight up was amazing. My friend and I had an incredible experience as there were no clouds in the sky and sun was setting. I would definitely recommend the higher jump, you'll be too busy laughing and smiling to feel scared :) Honestly the best experience. I'm not one to take risks like this, (my family and friends were very surprised!) and now that I've done it I feel so much more confident in my abilities and I feel like I can achieve anything. Thank you so much!!

My husband wanted to do a skydive - for me it was not an option as it was so far out of my comfort zone. Arriving at Skydive New Zealand in Fox Glacier I decided I would probably regret it if I didn't do one. However, I couldn't pluck up the courage ........... that was until Mark talked me through everything. He was brilliant and after his chat I knew I was going to do it and that I would be in very safe hands. In the plane he pointed out all the landmarks and the views were spectacular. Actually getting out of the plane, the part that scared me most, was so easy - and then we were flying!! Wow, the whole skydive was amazing with breathtaking scenery and the landing was unbelievably gentle. This was certainly an experience for me I never thought would be possible and one I'll never forget.
Thank you so much, Mark, for addressing all my fears and giving me the confidence to do the scariest thing I've ever done. A big thanks also to Nick for giving my husband a similar experience, and to the rest of your wonderful team for making this experience of a lifetime so memorable for us both.
In our eyes your team, the breathtaking scenery and the overall experience cannot be bettered and we have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Skydive NZ.

This was the most amazing experience of my life. I was slighty concerned going up, but Paul put my mind at ease. The view from 16,000 is mindblowing. Sow Capped Mount Cook, both Glaciers and the sun setting over the ocean. What more could you want from a skydive. Skydive NZ are an awesome company and I would recommend them to anyone.

Go for it. Yu'll have the time of your life!!! I know I did!

Excellent experience! I went here for my first ever dive and had a blast. They were efficient, helpful, and even matched a coupon we had at a different Skydiving place.

The best part... you get to take your own camera so you can take your own pictures of the gorgeous glaciers, Mt. Cook, the Ocean, and the farmland below!

Would definitely do again for $300.

Skydive NZ at Fox Glaciers was amazing! The staff was super friendly and accommodating. They even let us take our cameras up to take our own pictures! The view was breathtaking as well--you could see the water, the glaciers, the mountains... everything! For a great price as well :) I have nothing negative to say about this place and will continue to recommend it to all my friends.

Amazing views of the Fox glacier, the river valley and the ocean with the coastline. The flight up and the jump both provide you with spectacular views. The staff calms you down by being extremly professional and explaining everything you need to know. If you want to do a skydive - do it in Fox!

Ace. Like many of these activities it's quite pricey, also the optional pictures are pretty bad - next time I wouldn't bother getting them. But good activity.

I'd give it a higher ranking if I could. Small plane, seems like ages getting up to altitude, got a wicked view of the Southern Alps on the way up, going round and round over the glaciers!
Didn't want to come down, but it was exciting.
