New Zealand's Highest Skydive - 20,002ft!
 
If you want the ultimate skydiving experience then this jump is for you! Our 20,002ft skydive is the highest altitude in the whole of New Zealand, and in the Southern Hemisphere, and is a must-do if you want to skydive in New Zealand. Our 20,002ft skydive is out of this world with freefall for 85+ insane seconds reaching a speed of 200km/hr.
 
Civil Aviation rules limit tandem skydiving in New Zealand to a maximum exit altitude of 20,000ft, but with Skydive Auckland's landing area being 2 feet below sea level, they are officially the highest, completing skydives from 20,0002ft and this height cannot be beaten. This means that Skydive Auckland does officially have the HIGHEST skydive in the whole of New Zealand with more freefall time than any other skydive in the country.
 
Re-define freedom and escape reality with the highest skydive in the New Zealand at 20,000ft (or 20,0002ft above sea level). As well as the east and west coasts of NZ, from 20,000ft on a clear day you can see Great Barrier Island, Waiheke Island, Mt Ruapehu and even Mt Taranaki! Enjoy the serenity of a scenic parachute ride for approximately 5 minutes with spectacular views as you float gently back to the ground. 

The first 20,000ft [6096 metres] tandem skydive ever to take place in New Zealand happened on Friday 31st October at Skydive Auckland in Parakai, West Auckland.
