The historic event which features skydivers, jumping from parachutes amid 14,000 feet, takes place daily between 10 am and 5 pm - February 2 through 12 from the West End International Airport.

Organized by Sky’s The Limit, a skydiving company based in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, the event is also sanctioned by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation (MOTA). Sponsors for the event include Old Bahama Bay Resort, United Parachute Technologies, Vigil, Aerodyne, Great Wolf Lodge, Sun Path and Shooting Star.

According to Jeff Root, CEO and owner of Sky’s The Limit, “all of the skydivers are licensed jumpers and are excited to visit and participate in a sport they love in such a wonderful location as Grand Bahama Island and Old Bahama Bay Resort. It is our hope that we can make this event, in Grand Bahama, an annual one for our aviation members”.

Greg Rolle, pilot and Sr. Director of Sports and Vertical Markets for The Bahamas MOTA said, “the organizers of this event jumped full force, no pun intended, into planning and executing this event. This is a prime example of private enterprise working cohesively with the public sector, and we could not have been more excited to work alongside such a reputable and influential body. The economic injection, particularly into the West End community and the added interest generated from its marketing, are beneficial to the destination.”
