All sport jumpers must also complete a dropzone briefing before their first jump – please keep this in mind when planning your arrival time.

Skydive Bay of Islands has a Facebook group dedicated to sports jumpers. This group gives you an opportunity to check daily loads, weather calls, stay in touch with the dropzone, and each other.
