Friendly folks, unbeatable views, shitty (literally) landing area


Skydive Jurien Bay Rated 4 by: BeyondBanality on 2017-05-25

Pros: views, free wifi, aircon packing room, walking distance to town
Cons: Landing zone is 2-3km from DZ (you shuttle to/fro)

Overview- I did 16 fun jumps here over a week (APF C license holder with 160 jumps at time of visit). Very friendly and accommodating folks, unbeatable coastal views. I hate the landing zone though. Photos and details on blog!

Process/prices- If you are not under the APF, you have to first pay AUD30 for a temporary APF license which is valid for 1 month (the minimum validity). The DZ safety officer will then look at your logbook etc. and assess your experience for the APF equivalent license. It costs AUD50 per jump (AUD45 if you buy a ten-pack) and equipment rental is AUD30 per jump (capped at AUD100 per day) including pack job. There is no credit card surcharge but AMEX is not accepted.

Landing zone (LZ)- Tandems land on the beach and sporties land in a separate LZ further inland. HOWEVER, the LZ is actually some kind of horse paddock so itís literally full of horse shit. Also some plants with thorny things that cling on to your pilot chute. Note that LZ is 2-3km from DZ office, which requires a shuttle van ride to and fro, making load turnaround rather inefficient.

Facilities- Bunkhouse, 3BR apartment, rigger, airconditioned but small packing room, free wifi, clean toilets. There are 10 (? or so) adjustable student rigs for rental ranging from 170-270. Electronic manifest does not have any useful information such as groups, types of jumps, or even whether the load has departed.

Plane- Caravan and 206. We mainly used the Caravan, which takes 16 pax per load. Red/amber/green light system for exit, which is on the left side of the plane.

Altitude- usually 13000-14000 feet, which is nice.

Location- 240km (2.5h) drive from Perth airport (mainly highways). You can rent a car at the airport or in Perth city centre (to save on location surcharge). There is no real need to have your own wheels once you arrive at JBay as the DZ office is within walking distance of accommodation and amenities in town, but since there are no car rental outlets in JBay, there is no option to return your rental car once you get here. Free pickup from Perth city once a week (thursdays) by prior arrangement but this only happens if there are tandems.

Accommodation- Cheapest option is to stay at the DZ bunkhouse AUD20/night, but it is pretty grimy. If you have a group, the 3-bedrm (6 beds), 2 bathroom apartment above the DZ office is a superb choice. Otherwise there are a couple of motel and cabin options in town, some are walking distance from the DZ office. The town is fairly small with an IGA supermarket and a number of cafes and restaurants, mostly within walking distance of the DZ office. You can also walk to the beach (350m) from the DZ office.

Hands down the most beautiful DZ in the world IMO. The staff make you feel welcome and at home. Plenty of fun jumpers going there now so the scene is strong. Nice plane that climbs fast to 15,000ft. Beach jumps. A nice house to stay in next door to the office. You will feel at home here. recommend.

Despite of great view, this DZ is a tandem factory and its good for tandems not regular jumpers!

Staff were ok , receptionist was very rude.

Gears for rent were old and not in good quality.
If you don't have your own rig and want to rent, I wont recommend this DZ.

Skydive jurien bay has set a new standard in skydiving in Western Australia the professional and friendly service this dropzone brings is second to none.

Its the only dropzone that you are allowed to land on the beach for tadems or C licence and above and have a big padock for everyone else. The view is amazing and after jumping here you become more motivated to better yourself as a skydiver.
