Sky Jump and Sky Walk

Located smack dab in the middle of Auckland’s Central Business District is New Zealand’s tallest building.

When you head over to the bustling SKYCITY Plaza, you know you’re in for something seriously exciting. Now it’s up to you whether to look or leap.

Our Bungy Pod is attached underneath the bridge, and is ready to go for thrill-seekers looking for a buzz in New Zealand’s biggest city.

Adventure Activities in Bay of Islands

Scuba Diving or Snorkelling in Paihia

The reef diving in the Bay of Islands is completely different from anywhere were else in the world. We have a blended zone with tropical fish brought down to our temperate environment, so often we hear it called sub-tropical. 

Parasailing in Paihia/ Russell

You won’t believe how peaceful and quiet it is over the Bay of Islands. Just sit back relax and enjoy the amazing sceneries at 1300ft of line.

On a clear day you might see the “hole in the rock’ and the outer Islands past Russell. We regularly have dolphins, Orca’s and other marine mammals visiting the Bay so keep your eyes out. You might see different current lines in the water and sail boats pass underneath you.

Or hang upside down in our custom made harnesses to get the Adrenalin option if it is too peaceful and beautiful for you.

Skydive in Queenstown

 

It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft at 15,000ft into thin air. It takes courage.

Expect sensory overload as your mind, body and soul fight against every natural self-preserving urge. The challenge is immense. Harnessed by space age materials to an experienced qualified Jumpmaster, you step out of that aircraft door and for some 60 seconds, you plummet toward the ground at 200 kph - terminal velocity!

Your Funyak journey begins with an exhilarating jet boat ride from Glenorchy up the Dart River deep into the heart of the world-renowned Mt Aspiring National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Experience exciting 360 degree spins along the way as you marvel at the untouched beauty of this location, inaccessible by other means. Learn about Pounamu and the long-standing history of the area.

After your jet boat ride, you will travel back down stream with our expert guides in our unique Funyaks (inflatable kayaks) steering your way through pristine waters as they flow from the Southern Alps to Lake Whakatipu. Explore channels and side-streams in this spectacular wilderness location and witness the native flora and fauna of the area.

Just when you think your Funyak journey is over, you will enjoy a gourmet buffet lunch in the wilderness before heading home via 4 wheel drive coach to explore locations used in movies ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’.

This action-packed full day of exploration gets you away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown to experience the natural, untouched wilderness New Zealand is so famous for. With free transport and only a 45 minute, breathtaking drive from Queenstown, what are you waiting for?

Coronet Peak Paragliding

After a few steps down a gentle slope, experience the thrill of paragliding, a must do in Queenstown. You will be harnessed into your comfortable front row seat with your experienced tandem pilot taking the controls. Have an exhilarating joy ride or a relaxed scenic flight.
Our higher take off option is from Rocky Gully. It gives us the opportunity for more aerobatics – more of those spins and turns in the air – for the thrill seekers. If you want a gentle tandem flight but still take off higher, this is also for you.

Hydro Attack 

You’re inside what feels like a cross between a fighter jet and a torpedo.

It’s skimming across the top of the lake at 80kph then it dives under the water, surrounding you in serene liquid blue.

Next your pilot points the shark at the sky and it blasts back out again, straight up into the air before shattering the lake into a million crystal shards on a screaming re-entry.

Whatever else you’ve done in the name of extreme excitement, nothing has prepared you for a ride in the shark.

Hydro Attack is the world’s first commercial operator of these unique semi-submersible machines so while you’re in Queenstown don’t miss your chance to have a go.

Equipped with glacier boots and crampons you’ll walk for two hours amongst the ice formations and pinnacles and see first-hand the extraordinary colours of the ice-flow.  Touch the ice, breathe in the fresh air.
