Skydive on Big Island in Hawaii? Can't Post

Hey-

Going to Hawaii in July and have never been skydiving before. I want my first time to be while I am there, but have had no luck finding a place to skydive on the Big Island. That's the only island I'll be able to visit so it has to be located there.

PLEASE HELP!!


Thanks!

I'm pretty sure there are no dropzones on the island of Hawaii. Hang in here a while for other input though, maybe someone has opened one.

Why not catch a puddle jumper to Oahu while you're there? It has a couple of nice DZs.

You have to go to Oahu to get your jump, there is no dropzone on Hawaii. If you are not able to get to Oahu to jump don't sweat it too much - Volcano National Park will keep you more than occupied while you are on Hawaii.
If you are able to make it to Oahu however, the view from 14000' over the island is spectacular - probably one of the best places to make your first jump.
