Skydiving in New Zealand is generally considered to be safe as the industry is well-regulated and operates under strict safety guidelines. The country has a good safety record and many experienced and well-trained instructors. All skydiving operators in New Zealand are required to follow safety guidelines and regulations set by the New Zealand Parachute Industry Association (NZPIA).
The best season to skydive in New Zealand is generally during the summer months, which run from December to February. During this time, the weather is usually warmer and drier, and there are typically fewer weather-related cancellations and delays.
However, New Zealand's climate can be unpredictable, and weather conditions can change quickly. It's always best to check the weather forecast before booking a skydive and to be prepared for the possibility of cancellations or rescheduling due to weather.
Some people also enjoy skydiving during the off-season, which can offer a different experience. For example, in the winter months (June to August), you may have the opportunity to skydive over snow-capped mountains, which can be a stunning sight. However, winter weather conditions can be more challenging, and there may be fewer daylight hours available for skydiving.
Skydiving is a very weather-dependent activity, so sometimes you won’t be able to jump. The Operator will try their best to re-arrange your trip to the next time slot that suits and is available. For this reason, they advise you to book your skydive on the first available time slot in your holiday and keep a backup day free. If you cannot re-arrange for another trip, you will be refunded in full from wherever you paid originally.

Spectators are welcome to drive themselves to watch, though, and the Operator can provide directions. This is limited to one spectator per customer, and the Operator cannot allow spectators on the last trip of the day.
