Which skydive company should I use?

At RedBalloon, we provide potential high fliers with a range of skydiving experiences to choose from set amid a stunning natural backdrop. You’ll be free-falling like a bird and caressing the clouds as you dominate gravity from on high. For indoor and simulator skydiving, night skydiving, adrenaline skydiving and all your thrill-seeking skydiving desires practically anywhere in New Zealand, with highly trained instructors, the only way is up at RedBalloon.

What should I know before going skydiving?

Expect the unexpected. Apart from an initial overwhelming bodily and psychological fear, free-falling at 200 kilometres per hour for 45 to 60 seconds is guaranteed to induce goosebumps, perspiration, heightened blood pressure, sharpened senses, or all of the above. It’s an adrenaline rush like never before and your fitness levels and medical wellbeing should be in tiptop shape to withstand these sensory pressures.

What to wear: Lightweight, comfortable clothing that allows for ease of moveability is always recommended, and light, firm-fitting footwear such as a good runner will have you looking and feeling the part. Inclement or wild weather precludes skydiving activity, so you’ll need clear skies and fine, temperate conditions to maximise this thrill-seeking experience of a lifetime. Call and check on the day if clouds are gathering and rain is forecast.

Tandem skydiving is incredibly safe and instructors comply with the highest safety standards. Relax, smile and enjoy the ride. Reassuring, skilled and friendly instructors are trained to help make the experience so memorable that you’ll want to do it all over again.
