Discover the thrill of a skydive in Taupo with the view over the biggest lake in the Southern Hemisphere - Lake Taupo!
Skydive in Taupo from 9,000 ft with a certified tandem master is nothing but adrenaline, unforgettable memories, making new friends and all that with a strong focus on your safety and comfort. See you soon to skydive in Taupo!
- Meeting and preparation:
Please note the 9,000ft skydive is only available at 12.50pm each day. Limited seats are available.
We meet either at our office at Taupo Airport 10 minutes before the booked time or we arrange a pick-up for you from Taupo approx 20 minutes before the start time. Once at the destination, you fill in the necessary paperwork and get to know your tandem master. You can also leave your personal belongings in one of the lockers in the office. Then, you learn about the details of your skydive during the theoretical part of the preparation as well as review the functions and usage of skydive equipment. Next, it is the time to head to the plane!
- Flight and jump:
First, you experience a very relaxing scenic plane ride up to 9,000ft. From the plane, you have a breathtaking view over Lake Taupo which is the biggest lake in the Southern Hemisphere. At the moment, you reach the desired altitude, the door opens and you sit on the edge of the plane in a full harness with your tandem master behind you and attached to you. After you jump, you feel the fresh air on your face and adrenaline in your veins. With the speed up to 200km/h, you experience a freefall for 30 seconds until your tandem master opens the parachute. Then, you float to the ground for a couple of minutes, surrounded by the purest landscape of New Zealand.
- Landing and return:
At the end of a skydive in Taupo, we land gently on the airfield at Taupo Airport.
