We jump all-year-round (7 days a week) and our northern coastal location ensures great weather conditions, even during winter. In fact autumn, winter and spring is the nicest time of the year to skydive.

We fly a Cessna Caravan which takes 16 people and a Cessna 206 which takes 6 people. We are extremely proud of our aircraft which are immaculately maintained and presented.
Skydive Jurien Bay is committed to environmental sustainability. Amongst a variety of eco-friendly initiatives we engage in, we voluntarily offset our aircraft fuel emissions by tree planting through “Carbon Neutral” and our new Cessna Caravan aircraft is saving us 15,000 litres of fuel per year (63 tonnes less carbon). Our reception office water facility is rain water in an effort to reduce consumption of ground water and we use solar panels to power our office which reduces electricity consumption. The marine eco-system in Jurien Bay is spectacular and unique so we encourage all visitors to Jurien Bay to treat it with respect and not to litter.
