Overview

Hawaii Island Skydiving, located at Upolu Airport, near the town of Hawi in North Kohala is open for business. This brand new company on the Big Island of Hawaii offers the only skydiving adventure available east of Honolulu. No skydiving experience is necessary to participate in this unique attraction to the Big Island. Skydivers will enjoy a 20-minute scenic flight to altitude in our Cessna jump-craft; during which, views of the beautiful coastline of North Kohala and West Maui are easily viewed along with the summits of the volcanoes: Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai, & Haleakala. The adrenaline pumping freefall lasts for about 45 seconds, after which you will enjoy a peaceful 3-5 minute descent under parachute to a soft-landing back at Upolu Airport.

The view here is amazing! I have skydived all over the world. Operating every day the sun shines and the winds are good. Book your skydive early in the morning for best weather conditions.

I was at the skydiving center on the big island of Hawaii today! The old company DID shut down, but a new one has opened, with NEW OWNERS, NEW STAFF, and a NEW PLANE! This is easily the most beautiful drop zone on the planet!...More

Followed the address as given and this establishment does not exist anymore according to location. Arrived to the landing strip but no building was there no planes either. They didn't even answer their phones either
