Tandem skydiving is the fastest, easiest and safest way for an inexperienced skydiver to enjoy the thrill of jumping out of a plane, free falling through the sky at 200kph/120mph and floating safely to the ground under a parachute. The system includes a harness and parachute system for both the passenger and the instructor to share, so you can simply enjoy the thrill of the experience knowing your instructor has everything under control.
12,000 ft = 45 seconds freefall + 5 minute parachute ride under the canopy.
15,000ft = 60 seconds freefall + 5 minute parachute ride under the canopy.
18,000ft (highest skydive in the Southern Hemisphere) = 75 seconds freefall + 5 minute parachute ride under the canopy.
All in the most scenic and spectacular part of New Zealand, and right next to New Zealand's highest mountain peaks including 12,316 ft Aoraki/Mount Cook.
