North IslandTaupo RegionTaupo

Welcome to the original tandem drop zone in New Zealand! Experience the thrill of freefalling above Lake Taupo - the largest lake in Australasia! As you freefall at 200kph, take in views of Mt Doom, crater lakes and the epic coastlines of New Zealand.

• Consistently NZ’s best-priced skydive:
• All of our footage is filmed in high definition (see your jump in incredible detail!)
• Every video package comes either via digital download or on a free USB flash drive (awesome if you’re traveling)
• We have the most camera options, from the Exit Photo at just $25 to our Legend package at $300
• We upload every video to YouTube overnight (just email or share the link to Facebook!)
• We offer both group videos with friends and personalized solo videos
• NZ's first skydiving company to offer a 360 camera option of your jump (for the ultimate memories!)
• We’re the original full-time tandem drop zone in NZ and have jumped over 200,000 people since 1992
• Qualmarked since 2004 and Enviro-Silver Qualmark (quality assured and environmentally conscious)
• We will beat or match any deal NZ wide, guaranteed*. (*excludes Grabone deals)

Taupo has the most competitively priced skydiving experiences in New Zealand, and with such breath-taking views, you’d be crazy not to jump here! From 9,000, 12,000 or 15,000 feet you can see coast to coast views of the amazing North Island, not to mention the snow-capped volcanoes of Tongariro National Park and a huge expanse of Lake Taupo, the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest lake that spreads out below you.

With the crisp, clear days and blue skies of the gorgeous central plateau, Taupo really is New Zealand’s home of skydiving.

A very special experience, one that I will never forget! I personally found the atmosphere a bit too young/hip/backpackers, but that is just a detail, because it was an unforgettable day!

Can't really describe this...... unbelievable, amazing, best thing ever! There was never time to be afraid, only excitement and full of adrenalin. Even better than surfing and that is something!!

Surreal experience, either you love it or hate it - the staff did their best to entertain you but also made you feel safe. Expensive but FANTASTIC.

The skydive in Taupo was the first one I ever did and it was amazing! I did the 15,000ft jump without any video package. The jump was one of the best experiences of my life, especially the moment you jump out of the plane.
