I arrived there trying to do some sport jumping. Jeff, the main instructor was great and really tried to put me on a free slot. when they dont have a place in their airplane, they try to get free slots in the other tandem clubs airplanes.
The atmosphere is great - free WiFi, beautiful girls and everyone smile all the time.
I met 2 AFF students that started to do their AFF, they had to stop because of the weather, but they said that the attitude was great and professional.

Thanks Jeff for all the effort, I will defenetly coming back there!

I did my first tandem with TTS in 2004, came back in 2005 and did my AFF; will go there again this year;
so if you´re interested in skydiving no matter what (Tandem or AFF) - i can´t do anything but recommend Taupo Tandem Skydive - friendly staff everywhere!!!

I did my skydiving license with TTS and it was just perfect. All instructors were very friendly, helpful, patient and it was like a big family. Safety was ALWAYS first, the whole equipment & the plane were in perfect condition and the scenery with the lake and volcane is just amazing! A 12'000ft tandem jump was just 150NZ$/170NZ$ (depending on the day time)(march 2005), the best price I've ever seen so far...
I can strongly recommend the TTS DZ! Go for it... :-P

Taupo Skydiving Period


Taupo Tandem Skydiving Rated 1 by: jnairn on 2003-11-22

Pros: Good jumpship, nice scenery
Cons: Tandem mill

There are three dropzones around one airport here and all of them cater mainly to tandems. Great Lakes Skydiving (not listed on the site) were rude to me and hosed me on a jump so that I wouldn't interfere with their tandems.

I wouldn't recommend any of these DZ's.
