20 000 ft – New Zealand’s Highest Tandem Skydive
Or jump from 16,500, 12,000 or 8,000 ft
Skydive Zone Bay of Islands is the only Qualmarked CAA tandem skydiving company located in the Paihia / Kerikeri area. We offer the ‘Big Daddy’ of them all with NZ’s highest tandem skydive experience from 20000ft above the beautiful Bay of Islands. With over 85 seconds freefall, reaching speeds of 120 miles / 200 kilometres per hour or more, this jump provides some serious adrenaline overload.
If you’re up for some excitement but think 20000 feet is just a bit over the top, you can always jump from 16,500 feet, (over a minute of freefall), 12,000 feet, (about 45 seconds freefall), or 8,000 feet, (around 20 seconds freefall).
Regardless of the height you jump from, you’ll be fully briefed before before you go anywhere near a plane and you’ll be securely harnessed to your instructor for the entire jump… which means they have a vested interest in ensuring you enjoy a safe jump and a soft landing.
That said, it’s only right that you should exaggerate to all your mates about how it takes a true legend to leap fearlessly from a plane etc etc and to do this properly you’re going to need a DVD and/or photo stills. Having the photographic evidence will allow you to relive your experience again and again whilst keeping your feet planted firmly on the ground. And you’ll also want the t-shirt because wearing it allows you to brag without opening your mouth and instantly makes you more attractive to the opposite sex when they realise you’re the kind of person who fears nothing and takes life by the horns!
If you’re on holiday we may be able to provide you with a free pick up service from Paihia or Kerikeri but some conditions apply. For more information call 0800 GO JUMP
