What to Expect

With equal parts adrenaline, adventure and unrivalled scenery, a skydive in the Bay of Islands is guaranteed to take your breath away. Take a ride in our wonderful plane, look out at the amazing views, then experience exhilarating freefall when you jump from 12,000, 16,500 or 20,000 feet up!


Arguably the most picturesque skydive you can do in New Zealand, experience the beauty of the 144 islands of the Bay of Islands from the air. Cruising through the great blue skies of the Far North, you’ll get spectacular views of the turquoise ocean and beautiful golden beaches illuminated by the sun and lush green countryside. As we climb higher and the moment of truth comes nearer, your heart will begin pounding harder every second. 


Then, you jump! Free falling for anywhere between 45 to 85 seconds depending on your chosen altitude through the clear skies at speeds of almost 200 km per hour is something that simply can’t be described through words. This life-affirming moment has to be experienced to be believed. 


Your professional instructor will guide you through the whole tandem jump, from exit through freefall, piloting the canopy, and landing, and you can be reassured in the knowledge that our team of instructors have twenty years of experience between them. After the free fall, you will float under the canopy and bask in the scenery before safely landing back at the dropzone or one of our alternative landing areas. You will be buzzing long after your feet hit the ground!


Our friendly ground staff will also look after you before and after your jump, ensuring you are geared up and ready to go in time for your jump, and helping you relax and take it all in when you finally touch down again.

Frequently Asked Questions

It typically takes 1.5 hours from your arrival to complete your skydive, but please allow 3 hours just in case. We need to allow for changes in the weather and because we are an aviation business, unexpected operational requirements can pop up from time to time.

We provide each jumper with a jumpsuit to wear over their clothes so no special clothing is required. But we do require all jumpers to be wearing closed-toed shoes and recommend you dress comfortably and warmly (especially during the cooler months).

You can take as much footage as you like on the ground but there are strict rules on taking extra equipment on the plane. So unfortunately not, sorry! Our own camera flyers do a minimum of 200 jumps before they begin training for the camera, and since we are working with lines and parachutes there are too many safety issues with bringing your GoPro along. We do offer a range of different camera packages that you can purchase.
