We are dedicated to giving you the opportunity to get maximum jumps, so this year we are operating with TWO TURBINE AIRCRAFT. Maximum lift power means formation loads, big-ways and the opportunity for you to jump your socks off.



See both coasts of NZ like never before, with jumps available onto both Muriwai and Browns Bay beaches.
- Muriwai ($99) – Skydive onto the beautiful West coast (lifejackets provided) and enjoy a sunset BBQ when you land all included. There is a cash bar, with discounted drinks offers and we’ve got your gear storage and coach transport back to the DZ covered.

Enjoy a beer on us when you land (lifejackets provided) and we’ve organised an awesome dinner at at Deep Creek Brewery (additional cost) with cash bar available. Again, we’ll be taking care of your equipment and your coach transport back to the DZ where more beer awaits!
Spaces are going to go quick, first come, first served, so make sure you get your rego in NOW!
