Tandem skydiving from 12,000 ft* is an extraordinary experience. The view of the Bay of Islands you get from our plane is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Cruising through the great blue skies of the Far North, you’ll get spectacular views of the turquoise ocean, beautiful golden beaches illuminated by the sun and lush green countryside.

As we climb higher and the moment of truth starts coming nearer, your heart will begin pounding harder every second. And then, we jump.

Free falling for approximately 45 seconds through the clear blue skies at almost 200 km per hour is something that simply can’t be described through words. Tandem skydiving in New Zealand is a dreamlike experience, with equal parts of adventure, adrenaline and crazy mixed together.

After the free fall, you’ll then float under the canopy before safely landing back at the dropzone or one of our alternative landing areas. You’ll be buzzing long after your feet hit the ground!

At skydive bay of islands, we offer the best skydiving packages and deals in New Zealand. Our 12,000 feet skydive package starts from $329 and is perfect for the adrenaline junkies looking to conquer the skies without breaking the bank.

Don’t forget to capture the moment with one of our awesome camera packages!
