What strange and challenging times we are living together! We hope that your whanau and yourself are safe and able to look after yourselves during this tumultuous moment. For us at Skydiving Kiwis, the keywords that have been driving us are patience and resilience. As you know the tourism industry and by extension the adventure tourism industry have been severely affected by the lockdowns, ongoing restrictions and border closures. We have been discussing our approach to the current climate and working out our next steps in regards to our scheduled re-opening in October. It has become increasingly clear to us that the next 6 months will consist of turbulence, continuing lockdowns and complete border closure. At this time we have taken the tough decision, and we are going to remain closed until operating environment becomes sustainable and practicable.
During this time we will be answering emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
All prices are NZD.
