The spectacular views of clear turquoise water, long stretches of pristine golden beaches, and lush countryside are guaranteed to take your breath away.

Reaching speeds of up to 200km per hour, experiencing the thrill of free fall is something you’ll never forget. We fly up to 20,000ft above sea level – one of the highest skydives in the North Island!

After an insane freefall experience, you’ll then float under canopy before landing back at the dropzone, or one of our alternative landing areas.

You’ll be buzzing long after your feet touch the ground.


Throughout your unforgettable experience, you will be harnessed to someone who has done this literally thousands of times before.

Our tandem masters have over twenty thousand jumps and twenty years of experience between them and are trained to the highest level. Skydive Bay of Islands is certified to the highest possible standard by New Zealand’s Civil Aviation Authority, ensuring that your skydive will not only be the most exhilarating thing you do this year but also one of the safest and most highly regulated. We’re also Qualmark endorsed so you can trust in our entire operation from the airplane right down to the goggles!

Our friendly ground staff will look after you before and after your jump, they will get you geared up and ready to go for your skydive, and they’ll be there to help you take it all in when your feet finally touch down again.


Don’t forget to capture the moment with one of our awesome camera packages. With our Platinum package, not a single second is missed and you’re provided with video and picture footage to make you the envy of your friends.

So what are you waiting for?! Tandem skydive with the best: the best islands views, the best location, and the best crew and instructors!

Come fly with the crew at Skydive Bay of Islands.
