Auckland Is Now Home to New Zealand's Highest Tandem Skydive

It promises an insane 80-second freefall.

Previously held in the South Island by Skydive Franz, the country's highest tandem skydive can now be found in Auckland.

Skydive Auckland recently introduced the new experience which sees thrill seekers ascend to 20,000 feet before launching themselves into thin air for an insane 80-second freefall that reaches speeds of up to 200kph.

Needless to say, the experience offers stunning views of Auckland's landscape. As you gracefully float back to earth you can expect to see both black sand beaches on the west coast and white sand beaches on the east coast, as well as views across Waiheke and Great Barrier.

The experience has no age limit — the company has previously taken people from 3 to 97 years old for tandem skydives — and it costs $595 per person. Free return transport is available from the city to the jump base in Parakai. Alternatively, it's a 45-minute drive.
