Skydive Great Lake Taupo

The Skydive Capital of the World

Did you know that with more than 30,000 jumps a year, Great Lake Taupo is THE skydiving capital of the world? And it's supposed to be the cheapest (and best!) place in New Zealand to do it too.

Now why would anyone pay to be hurled 15,000ft out of a plane straped to a stranger to boot? Seems strange but the hundreds of adrenaline seeking junkies that make the jump each day will give you plenty of reasons for doing so. Book the experience of your life with one of these two Taupo skydive operators : Taupo Tandem Skydiving or Skydive Taupo.

This, my friends, is the story of my skydiving experience in Taupo, New Zealand. Read more... Reviews

Back when I was a young whipper snapper I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life - a tandem skydive. Now for a man who isn’t fond of heights you would think this would be the last experience I would go for. Anyway seven years on and I’m back in Taupo to remember if it really was that good! Today I’m getting close to death with Taupo Tandem Skydiving the original tandem company in New Zealand. Read more...
