“Amazing hospitality, Breathtaking experiences”

Skydive Kaikoura Ltd

Attraction details
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!

“Amazing hospitality, Breathtaking experiences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2011

Henk and Sarah run a fantastic business. They are amazing people that go out of their way to make you feel at home and comfortable. They are very professional and organised, and just so happen to have the only skydiving company in the most beautiful part of New Zealand! If you are to go skydiving anywhere in NZ, it would have to be Kaikoura with Skydive Kaikoura Ltd.

“OMG, that was the thrill of a lifetime!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2010

Henk and Sarah go out of their way to ensure you are completely aware and comfortable with your choice of adventure. This is not a decision to take lightly, but if you decide to go, Skydive Kaikoura is, without any doubt, the right place to go and take the biggest "Leap of Faith" you will ever experience.... until you do it again!! :)

Thanks so much for giving us such a memory.

BTW, i am writing this review a full 10 months after we took our jump, it is still a highlite and we still watch the video with amazement at how much fun the experience was.

Truly amazing!!

“A stunning experience in Kaikoura”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2010

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).

“On top of the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2010

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.

“This is an amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2010

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.
