Learn to skydive solo with the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course at Skydive Bay of Islands!

We are affiliated with the New Zealand Parachute Industry Association (NZPIA), meaning our training curriculum and instructors are all NZPIA approved. Our equipment is maintained to NZPIA standards and is of the latest designs.

Our Learn to Skydive/AFF Program is based on international standards. This means if you undertake this program while you are a visitor to New Zealand that the qualification you receive is transferable and recognised by your home, and other, countries.

Our Learn to Skydive/AFF skydive training program will teach you all the skills you require to be able to skydive solo, learning comprehensive skills for flying your body and piloting your parachute.
Upon completion of our learn to skydive program (levels 1 – 8) you will be able to skydive on your own.

Throughout the course, we will use digital video as a tool to debrief your skydives. This is a great learning tool but also makes for a great souvenir – you can take your videos home with you once you complete the course.

Additional Costs:

– High Altitude Course – $25 one time payment

*Please note: NZPIA fees need to be paid and up to date, and high altitude course must be completed prior to your first jump.

The Bay of Islands is an awesome place to hang out for a while. Known locally as the ‘Winterless North’ the beaches are world-class and there are plenty of activities for when you’re not skydiving. During summer especially there is a great social scene in Paihia with bars, restaurants, hotels, and more.

We are dedicated to your training and on our dropzone, you will have access to some of the best resources and instructors in New Zealand.

Come and learn to skydive at Skydive Bay of Islands!
