“A stunning experience in Kaikoura”
Review of Skydive Kaikoura Ltd - CLOSED

Owner description: Experience the extreme rush of tandem skydiving in New Zealand by doing a skydive over Kaikoura’s breathtaking coastal and alpine scenery. The best the North and South Island have to offer!Powered only by gravity you will freefall at 200kph and be simply jumping for joy from the whole experience. We are not a “factory” type skydiving centre so can promise you an “adrenaline rush” without hurrying you through the process. We appreciate that everyone is different and have confidence in saying we provide New Zealand’s most personal skydiving experience! Instruction is offered in English, Dutch, German and the odd word of Kiwi slang!

It was our last chance to make a skydive on our holiday in New Zealand. The personal approach of Sarah and Henk made our decision to make a skydive easier. They are a serious couple and your safety is very important for them. So we jumped from 13.000 ft and with a speed of 200 km/hr we went back to earth. With a beautiful film and photos we returned home and surprised our children and grandchild. Margreet and Huub (Netherlands).

We have just returned from a months trip around New Zealand where our highlight had to be Skydiving with Henk & Sarah at Kaikoura. We were both very nervous about what we were going to do and were soon comforted by Henk's enthusiasm and Sarah's warm welcome. Henk has done over 14,000 jumps and he seemed to be in one piece so he must be relatively good at it.
It was unbelievable, we both wanted to do it again, i can't describe the exhilaration we felt which was only improved by sarah and Henk's professionalism. This is not one of those production line activities, we were looked after on a one to one basis throughout our 3 hour stay. Wonderful, thank you guys for a true thrill of a lifetime.

New Zealand is the place of my dreams to free fall, but despite being in NZ for nearly 6 weeks the opportunity to skydive didn't come together at Taupo/Queenstown. Thank goodness!!
I knew Kaikoura is surrounded by beautiful scenery, combined with a very personal service from Henk and Sarah, this experience really delivered the goods. The flight and jump was amazing, truly awesome. Would love to do it again... and again! Got the t-shirt and the DVD (it is emotional!). Thank you Skydive Kaikoura Team.

The Skydive here was really great! De location and the views you get in the plane up are gorgeous; the ocean (sometimes with whales and dolphins), the mountains and the peninsula). The owners Henk and Sarah made me feel really comfortable and 'secure/save', in a very personal way. Thanks for that! Also the photo's and dvd are really nice. It was a special experience.

Weather had scppered a planned jump in Wanaka so when we arrived in Kaikoura we just turned upon spec and were told you can go now!
The whole procedure was clear concise easy and very professional.
So pleased my maiden jump was with Henk his entusiasm should carry a government health warning .
Many thanks to all the team for such a great experience.
