16,000 Feet Tandem Skydive & Gannet Experience
Imagine the excitement of free-falling at a speed of 200+ km/hr with a spectacular and unique backdrop of both the east and west coasts of New Zealand. At 5,000ft, your parachute is opened and you slow to an extremely comfortable floating pace, allowing you to really take in the patchwork of emerald green fields and winding aqua waterways, peeking out from under the glorious, fluffy long white clouds. From high-adrenaline to relaxing pursuits, there’s something for every traveller. Head out to enjoy our Cellar Door & Lawn Bar experience with a visit to the Muriwai black sand beach.
