Overview
More
Skydive Bay of Islands is New Zealand’s number one destination for skydiving at the beach. Cruise up to 16,500ft and soak up scenery of all 144 islands that make up the Bay of Islands. 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 16,500ft - the highest skydive in the North Island! After an insane 70 seconds you’ll then float under canopy before landing on the beach, or back at the dropzone. You’ll be buzzing long after your feet touch the ground.

My daughter was celebrating her friends 18th birthday with a skydive. They had been mucked around for 6weeks before changing to Skydive Kerikeri. Their experience was amazing! They came down wanting to go back up and jump higher at 16,000ft. We credit the staff and...More

This was a birthday present from my grown up children. From arriving to departure nothing was to much trouble for the professional instructors. How to put a nervous 60 something at ease is no mean feat.
