With our expert tandem instructors, you’ll jump out of our pink aircraft from 12,000, 15,000 or 18,500 feet and into an incredible freefall of 200km/h over the world’s most stunning dropzone.  Reaching height the door opens and the adrenaline kicks in. With your heart in your throat and your blood rushing through your ears, you jump…make sure you keep your eyes open – you can now see from the East to the West Coast; from White Island to Taranaki; the gorgeous Tongariro National Park and the clear waters of Lake Taupo.  Surrounded by snow tipped peaks, and the clean fresh blue of Lake Taupo, you’ll slow from freefall into a safe controlled landing.

We have a great range of photos and video options to choose from, and we will even pick you up for FREE in your own Skydive Taupo limousine. Our friendly frontline team will guide you through the process of selecting your preferred jump height and camera options. Your footage is professionally edited and includes four interviews so you can re-live your emotions during the whole journey.
