Fancy a visit to the beach with a difference?

This Waitangi weekend, world record skydivers from all over the globe are flocking to Auckland to get the chance to jump into two of Auckland’s most stunning beaches, all organised by Skydive Auckland. Watch them land gracefully on their feet or swooping in at high speed to the white sand of Browns Bay.

The sport, skydivers, have a full weekend of jumping planned at Skydive Auckland in Parakai, with 2 turbine aircraft taking them to 13,000ft each day from sunrise to sunset, including those beach jumps off a lifetime where they can see both coasts of NZ like never before.

Renowned skydivers, such as Kate Vaughan and Maria Dmitrienko hold world records or are national skydiving champions and are attending the event to pass on their wisdom to sport skydivers across a range of skills. Some will be flying in wingsuits, other moving at angles and more forming large circles of people in the sky.

So for the chance to see this exciting action on the beautiful east and west coasts of NZ, just get to the beach from 7pm - you won’t be able to miss it! Skydive Auckland will also be open for business as usual with tandem skydiving on offer to thrill-seekers keen to try this experience of a lifetime above Auckland’s stunning coastline, and the skydiving entertainment happening each day at the Parakai location will be a bonus!

This event going ahead is dependent on the weather being suitable for skydiving.
