Information from Viator
Skydive amongst mountains, glaciers, lakes, rivers and ocean views. Skydive Franz has New Zealand’s highest mountain Aoraki/Mount Cook and the biggest glaciers Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers immediately on the right and the wide blue ocean on the left. Multiple departure times. Allow 3 hours for your tandem skydive experience.
At your check in time meet at the Skydive Franz office in the Main Street of Franz Josef Glacier Village. You'll need to fill in your personal details on an iPad and select your skydive height, any photo and video options and other optional purchases. The Skydive Franz staff will be on hand to answer any questions. You'll then be weighed and taken to the airport in complimentary van transport. There are lockers for your personal gear at the airport and complimentary tea and coffee. The Skydive Franz staff will give you a jumpsuit and help you into a harness and other gear and give you a quick safety briefing before boarding the aircraft with your tandem instructor. Depending on the height selected the flight will be 10-20 minutes long and oxygen is provided on the 16,500 and 19,000ft skydives. Your expert tandem instructor will give you instructions and commentary along the way. As you exit the aircraft you'll have 20-75+ seconds of free fall depending on the height you selected then 5-7 minutes under the canopy before landing. You'll likely have a chance to watch others completing their skydive before being transported back to the town office and any video or photos you may have purchased will be emailed to you within 48 hours.
