Experience the extreme rush of tandem skydiving in New Zealand by doing a skydive over Kaikoura’s breathtaking coastal and alpine scenery. The best the North and South Island have to offer!Powered only by gravity you will freefall at 200kph and be simply jumping for joy from the whole experience. We are not a “factory” type skydiving centre so can promise you an “adrenaline rush” without hurrying you through the process. We appreciate that everyone is different and have confidence in saying we provide New Zealand’s most personal skydiving experience! Instruction is offered in English, Dutch, German and the odd word of Kiwi slang!

Much to our disappointment, we found that the company has stopped running this in Kaikoura! It's pretty much just Queenstown and Christchurch left I think.

I had always wanted to skydive so when my wife and son brought me a sky dive with Skydive Kaikoura they called my bluff. We had our trip postphoned on the advise from Skydive Kaikoura as weather was marginal which impressed me as they want to give there clients the best experience possible. We arrived the following weekend the weather... More

These guys were really lovely and made us feel really excited and very comfortable in what we were about to do, despite being really nervous. The weather didn't go in our favour at first but they were incredibly good about the situation wanted to be as flexible as possible for us. Luckily the weather improved hugely in the afternoon and...

My son dove while I watched. He loved every second (except the 12 hrs before when he wasn't sure he was doing the right thing!) and watching him was just thrilling. The pictures they took are incredible. He will NEVER forget this experience and the staff was so personable.

I did a tandem parashute jump with Henk and had a great time. We had a gorgeous clear day, the mountains were beautiful. There were pods of dolphins as we were coming down -- I HIGHLY recommend Skydive Kaikoura. I felt informed, safe and excited and I loved the entire experience.

They are very professional and organised, and just so happen to have the only skydiving company in the most beautiful part of New Zealand! If you are to go skydiving anywhere in NZ, it would...

Henk and Sarah go out of their way to ensure you are completely aware and comfortable with your choice of adventure. This is not a decision to take lightly, but if you decide to go, Skydive Kaikoura is, without any doubt, the right place to go and take the biggest "Leap of Faith" you will ever experience.... until you do...

It was our last chance to make a skydive on our holiday in New Zealand. The personal approach of Sarah and Henk made our decision to make a skydive easier. They are a serious couple and your safety is very important for them. So we jumped from 13.000 ft and with a speed of 200 km/hr we went back to... More
