Google Street View decided to jump out of a plane over a coastal New Zealand national park. And lucky for us, we get to experience the skydiving trip without having to sign any waivers.
In late December, a certified Google Street View photographer teamed up with New Zealand skydive operator Skydive Abel Tasman. Together, they captured the mountainous region of the South Island and the sun-soaked beaches and glimmering ocean.
In the first ever skydive to make it onto Google Street View on Google Maps, the virtual tour shows what it’s like to head 16,500 feet into the sky and then jump, falling at about 125 miles per hour toward Abel Tasman National Park below.
Here’s your chance to skydive in what is a pretty stunning part of the world. And you don’t even have to leave your computer. Just “travel” along with the plan along different “floors” of the map starting on a field, soaring above the awe-inspiring peaks and coastline before returning back to safety.
The jump, shot over the course of a few days, was also captured in a 360-degree video.
