New Zealand’s Most Scenic Dropzone with Views of Both Islands & Three National Parks

Over the past 26 years Skydive Abel Tasman has shared the unforgettable experience of a skydive over the most scenic part of New Zealand with over 100,000 customers. Skydive Abel Tasman provides tandem skydives from the Motueka Aerodrome all year round.

The Abel Tasman area has a worldwide reputation as a truly epic place to skydive. There is no other skydive location in the country where you can experience views of both islands, three national parks, golden beaches, rivers, the ocean and mountains all in one panoramic view!

Skydive Abel Tasman has been owned and operated by passionate and award winning skydiver Stuart Bean since its inception in 1991. A lot has changed over that time but the company’s commitment to providing New Zealand’s most epic skydive experience hasn’t!

“You can’t beat stepping out of the door of an aeroplane at 16,500 feet and having that experience of free fall.” says Stuart Bean who has clocked up an impressive 17,000 jumps in his time.

The jumping crew includes some of the most experienced tandem masters in the country meaning you’re in good hands with Skydive Abel Tasman. The whole crew from the ground staff through to the tandem masters and pilots work hard to make your whole experience unforgettable!

Skydive Abel Tasman is open 364 days of the year (closed Christmas) and the settled flying conditions in the winter months mean there is no bad time to experience New Zealand’s most epic skydive!
