About Skydive Bay of Islands
Skydive Bay of Islands is New Zealand’s number one destination for skydiving at the beach. Cruise up to 20000ft 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 20000ft - the highest skydive in the North Island! After an insane 85 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.
