Good drop zone. Upgrades in progress so soon to be better. PAC750 is a quick ride up. Plenty of different canopy sizes for hire. Load organising gets a bit chaotic at times but generally very good.

The drop zone here is a great place to learn with very experienced coaches and friendly people will be better when the drop zone moves to its new location

Great drop zone that is always working to become bigger and better. Soon to be using new larger landing / packing areas which look promising.

I completed several solo jumps and 3 coach jumps here.

The place runs well and is super clean.
The staff are amazing, the coaches and instructors are simply awesome.
I can't recommend this place enough!

I would highly recommend Skydive Auckland for a jump, laugh and good times!
