What people are saying about Auckland

It was my dads christmas present, he never mentioned to me that he’s never done skydiving before so I thought it was gonna be an awesome memory especially if his sister was going he would be even more grateful. They had a very good and fun experience they never thought they would be doing. Overall my dad and Aunty had the time of their lives. Thank you Auckland Skydive will come again

I was slightly unsure to what I had signed up for and was not feeling very confident at the beginning. Transportation was okay and felt disappointed that the driver was not very informative. Once I arrived at the complex and was greeted by staff and was shown the safety features I began to feel more comfortable.

Amazing experience!! Very polite and extremely helpful set of crew! They made my first ever skydiving experience so memorable! Aaron has been so good!

It was a great experience from the fuss-free booking online, the confirmation email, the pick-up and the whole experience of tandem skydiving!

Amazing experience and a great way to see the country!!
