Why Choose Taupo?
Taupo has the most competitively priced skydiving experiences in New Zealand, and with such breath-taking views you’d be crazy not to jump here! From 15,000 feet you can see coast to coast views of the amazing North Island, not to mention the snow capped volcanoes of Tongariro National Park and huge expanse of Lake Taupo, the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest lake that spreads out below you.

With the crisp, clear days and blue skies of the gorgeous central plateau, Taupo really is New Zealand’s home of skydiving.

About us
Taupo Tandem Skydiving began operating in 1992 as one of the first tandem drop zones in New Zealand.  Back then, the company operated out of a house at the Taupo airfield with a mere 15 crew members.

In 1998, skies turned bluer when a local family with strong roots in aviation took over the business.  The new owners helped TTS realise its full potential.  Today it is one of New Zealand’s largest and most respected skydiving organizations, complete with modern aircraft and 35 crew members.  Taupo Tandem Skydiving has the capacity to skydive over 100 tandem passengers per day!

Our operation is approved by the New Zealand Parachute Federation (NZPF) and our aircraft is maintained in accordance with the New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).  Taupo Tandem Skydiving adheres to strict standards ensuring customer andemployee safety.
