Jump was great - my instructor and the crew in the airport did a good job! But the handling of the bookings was really poor! Due to overbooking we had to wait almost 4 hours additionally. Booked on 2.30 and asked to come back "because of bad weather conditions" at 5 and then again at 6. - while other people were jumping the whole time. The woman at the booking counter was telling everybody different stories and times - thinking we were too stupid to check it, even we were sitting in one waiting area - really unprofessional! Later we bad to hear from the Crew the stories about the previous Jumps in the early afternoon.

One of the greatest experiences I've ever had and definitely the best thing I've done in New Zealand. Can't recommend enough, if you're even slightly considering it, just do it!

Amazing nature, one of the most scenic skydives worldwide. Booked for a 10am but jumped at 4pm. Too long a waiting time and therefore bad weather in the afternoon.

Hello, and thank you for your review. I am sorry that your jump time was moved to the afternoon, but weather conditions in the morning were not good enough to fly safely, therefore we cannot take customers up! The jump was rescheduled for the afternoon and you checked in for that at 1.30pm. We do ask that you allow 2.5 hours for the activity as sometimes the weather does delay us..especially at this time of year! Our customers are always given the option of re-booking at a convenient time or leaving with no charge if their given time is not possible. I am glad that you chose to wait and the weather cleared enough for us to jump with you. The scenery is spectacular and I hope you enjoyed it once we were able to get you up there! Again I apologise for the delay, but safety comes first!

Amazing experience and landscape, friendly people. But we could not jump at the booked time and had to wait several hours until we could start.
