Crusing to the Bay of Islands-1

Just 20 minutes away from your cruise ship with free pick up and drop off service from Paihia, it's never been easier to take part in New Zealand's most exciting activity. You'll enjoy a 15-minute scenic flight where you can see your cruise ship in the bay, the sand dunes on the West Coast and on a clear day you'll see all the way up to Cape Reinga.

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

Then we jump! Reaching speeds of up to 200km per hour, experiencing the thrill of free fall is something you’ll never forget. We fly up to 20,000 ft 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 on the ground. You’ll be buzzing long after you get back to your cruise ship!

Skydive Bay of Islands is proud to be a Gold Qualmark rated business.
