Of course everyone is a bit nervous before doing a skydive.
Apart from the thought that you might die by jumping out of a plane, you have nothing to worry about with these guys. They really know what they're doing and will bring you safely to the ground.
They make an effort to give you a nice memory video and take heaps of pictures so you have a stunning new desktop background image.
I absolutely recommend!!!

“Hell of an experience!”

This is the most amazing thing I've ever done! So glad my first jump was here, the view was incredible even though we didn't have the best weather! I just want to thank all the crew, you made me feel very safe and relaxed, especially Andrew. If you're thinking of doing a sky dive do it here!

“"Wow"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

I had always wanted to do a skydive but never thought I would have the courage. It's been on my 'bucket list' and now I'm not a young spring chicken anymore, I thought I'd better get on and do it! It was amazing. All the staff were friendly and that helped to put me at my ease.

I did the 16000ft jump which was incredible - the free-fall was amazing and when the parachute came out, the feeling of just floating above the beautiful scenery of the Bay of Islands was 'magical'.. I felt so peaceful. To anyone who is nervous about doing this, I would say - just do it! It is wonderful... and I would highly recommend the team at Skydive because not only was everyone friendly but they were extremely professional also and I felt safe.

“Amazing Staff, Unreal Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

I did the 16000 foot skydive yesterday, and cannot recommend this company highly enough.
The staff were friendly, good spirited, and in spite of years of experience and thousands of jumps, made my experience feel unique, and seemed excited and eager for me to have fun.
The ascent to 16000 feet was truly terrifying, and the jump out of the plane might be the most frightening moment of my young life, but it was well worth the anxiety! It was such a phenomenal experience.
A few people were curious if there was any motion sickness, jerking, or pain. Aside from the stress of leaping 4km out of a plane, there was no physical pain or motion sickness at all.
I paid extra for the photos and video, and I am glad I did. The professional I was jumping with got some amazing shots, and put in an effort to make sure I got some cool footage.
While it was quite the expensive activity, it's absolutely worth saving for.
As far as the Bay of Islands as the place to do a skydive, it was just spectacular. The views were epic and the day was gorgeous. It's difficult to imagine better scenery!
I feel like I've used a thesaurus worth of adjectives for "incredible" but Skydive Bay of Islands lives up to every single one! Simply sensational!
