Is skydiving in New Zealand on your bucket list of things to do? Enjoy a 16,500 feet tandem skydive over the beautiful Abel Tasman for a unique and once in a lifetime experience you will never forget. Come along and meet your experienced tandem skydive instructor who will take you on a heart-racing adventure of a lifetime. Listen in to the safety briefing before you get suited up and ready to skydive. After a 20 minute scenic flight, you will jump from the plane at 16,500 feet to experience an incredible rush of adrenaline like never before. The skydive will give you 70 seconds of free fall at speeds of 200kmph. After the freefall, the parachute will open and you can relax and enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the Abel Tasman on the 5 minute flight back down to base. The 16,500 feet skydive is the most popular option because of the ultimate adrenaline rush it provides and the extended time you have in the air to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The snow capped mountains, golden beaches, pristine oceans and rivers will take your breath away. If you want to keep reliving the experience, professional dvd and photo packages are available for purchase on the day. A free courtesy van is available from Nelson to transfer you to the drop zone.
