If you want to experience the thrill of jumping from 18,500ft, Skydive Taupo has what you are looking for! Our certified tandem masters will let you live an incredible and breathtaking experience. If you think you can handle it, Skydive Tapo is waiting for you.
Programme- Meeting and preparation:
We arrange a pick-up for you from Taupo with our limo around 15 minutes before the activity. If you do not need the transfer you can come to our office 5 minutes before the booked time. Once arrived at the airport, we will introduce you to your skydive instructor, our crew will explain to you what you are going to experience, give you a safety briefing and get you ready with the needed equipment. Once buckled up, let's board on our unique pink plane and start your new Skydive Taupo adventure!- Flight and jump:
You are going to enjoy a scenic plane ride. From 18,500ft
on a clear day, you are able to see both coasts of the North Island, Mount Taranaki, Napier and the Rotorua Lakes, the Tongariro National Park and, of course, the Great Lake Taupo. Once you reach the right altitude, the plane doors will open and you will jump with your skydive master attached to you. During the freefall, you will reach speeds up to 200km/h and experience a unique fall of 75 seconds!
At 5,000ft, the skydive instructor will then open the parachute - you will have the chance to steer it yourself!- Landing and return:
The landing is easy and smooth, just lift your legs to allow the skydive master to gentle land on the airfield at Taupo Airport. Once your skydive Taupo experience is over, we will drive you back to Taupo.
