Lake Taupo 15,000-Foot Tandem Skydiving

    What to Expect
    Your day will begin with a pickup from your Taupo accommodation in a brand new stretch Hummer. Alternatively, you have the option to self-drive to the drop zone if you’d prefer, there will be plenty of parking.
    Upon arrival, you will be asked to sign a waiver form before being taken through your options regarding altitude and cameras. Once you've decided on your height and camera options it's time to get ready! You will be shown you through the hangar where you can store your belongings in our lockers before gear up.
    It's gear up time! You will meet your tandem master and camera man, smile and wave for the camera and watch the safety video while we outfit you in a jumpsuit, harness, hat and goggles. When you're all geared up it's time to enter the plane and take off. Your tandem master will point out the beautiful sights around the Lake Taupo region on your scenic flight up to altitude, which takes about 15-minutes.
    The moment of truth has arrived - it's time for freefall! Your tandem master will move you towards the door. Stop and smile for a quick photo before exiting, then experience the amazing feeling of freefalling at 200kph above Lake Taupo! Enjoy 60 seconds from 15,000ft, and spot the coast to coast views and snowy volcanoes of Tongariro National Park!
    At 5,000ft your tandem master will deploy the parachute and you float back to earth, enjoying more of the stunning views. You may even get to steer the parachute! Upon landing, you will take a post-freefall picture.
    After the skydive we will de-gear you, then grab a glass of water while you laugh at your skydiving video in our cinema. Just before you leave you can check out the T-shirts and Hoodies on offer in the shop, then we'll give you a certificate before taking you back to your accommodation.

    It was a great experience with these guys. My tandem Andrew Godfrey did an amazing job with the entire skydive including safety and the occasional posing. 15,000 ft with the Guru pack is worth it, i would recommend it anyone who loves that adrenaline rush.More

    Such an unbelievable experience with Taupo Tandem. The whole team from the moment you walk through the doors makes you feel safe and secure. Everything and everyone is so professional. Loved my jumpmaster Albert Schuerman! Everyone should do this at least once in their life!

    這幾天天氣不穩定但今天很幸運出太陽拍了好照片。美中不足的是選了18500呎的只跳了15000呎的,下次有緣再挑戰。今天的活動非常圓滿,從陶波旅客中心接送到回來只花兩小時。服務很專業,從整裝到飛上青天沒花很多時間。最精彩的部分就是是跳下那一剎那陶波湖壯麗的景色與感受大氣驟變讓心跳加速的感覺,直到飛行傘展開拖行向上而重生。希望能再次造訪紐西蘭也感謝敎練Ian讓我有超讚的飛行體驗。志豪 The weather is not stable these days, but I am lucky today to fly with sunshine and having good pictures. Although we change to 15000 ft, it makes me want to do it again with 18500 ft. It only takes 2 hours from picking...More
