Overview
More
Skydive Zone Bay of Islands is located in Kerikeri and offers tandem skydiving for your first jump experience. Instruction begins with a short briefing, then you and your instructor share a tandem harness, freefalling from nearly 15,000 feet at speeds of 120 mph (200kph) or more. After about a minute or more of freefall, your instructor will open the dual-sized parachute, and together you'll fly back to the ground for a soft landing.

This was an experience that I will never forget ever in my life. The whole experience of diving from an aircraft was truly out of this world. At first we were really scared, but once we jumped, we truly loved it and can't ever forget...More

I expect all skydives are like this, but they were well organised and efficient and the video/camera shots were very well done. The staff are excellent. I just wish they could be better at timing, they asked us to arrive far earlier than was reasonable....More

This company has 5* service! We had one skydive cancelled in Queenstown due to the weather, so we really wanted to fit in a skydive in the north island before we came home. But all our days were booked up with other activities. We went...More

I went skydiving with this company in 2010. It was such a good experience. The staff was very funny, which makes you feel relaxed - but don't be afraid - they don't play with your safety. The view was absolutely amazing and breathtaking. I would...More

I did the 16,500ft skydive back in March 2013, and it was an amazing experience! The crew are all very professional, at the same time as having some good banter and messing with you a bit. You get all the right kit, and you're up...More

So I did the 19,500-ft jump and it was incredible. 85 seconds (or thereabouts) of freefall! Their prices are quite high, so if you're on a budget this place is not for you. What's nice is that they offer several heights: 8k, 12k, 16k and...More

I will highly recommend SkyDive Zone to first time jumpers. The staff here are great and don't just make you feel like 'just another jumper'. They treat you with great enthusiasm and safety is a high priority to them. My instructor, Andy, took great videos...More
