Skydive Vancouver Island: The Drop Zone

Amenities:  Our Dropzone is located at the Qualicum Beach airport and we are open 6 days a week from March till October (we are closed every Tuesday so we can mow the lawn and enjoy this beautiful place we live with our family and friends).  Our facility location is awesome and includes:

  • Furnished lounge area and picnic area for you, your friends and family to take advantage of.  For large groups we can offer a BBQ or even a private party room.  

  • We take off and land at the same location so it makes it easy for you to share your experience with everyone in your group whether they are jumping or not.

  • Our building is wheelchair accessible, including our restroom

  • Yes, there are a couple onsite restrooms

  • We are kid friendly

  • Pets are welcome at the airport but not permitted inside our facility or on air side 

  • A designated smoking area

  • There is a great restaurant at the airport called the Final Approach and the food there is spectacular.  We are particularly fond of the Seafood Chowder every Friday.  

  • If you are in Nanaimo at a ferry terminal, we do have a shuttle that can pick you up.

  • We accept pretty much every form of payment there is except Bitcoin.

Aircraft: We have a Cessna 182 and most of our jumps are from 10,000 feet. We do have a special package to 12,500 feet that we offer on a limited basis.  Our aircraft is maintained to a commercial operators level, which means it is very well looked after.

Staff:  Our instructors all have Coach designations from the Coaching Association of Canada, Have a "C" Certificate of Proficiency from the Canadian Sport Parachuting Association, 1000+ skydives, 500+ Tandem Skydives, Minimum 5 years in the sport, Certification from the Tandem Manufacturer and a current medical.  Our standards are higher than the industry. Our ground crew are exceptional and will make you feel at home.
