We are a group of 5-6 divers ages 13, 15, 18, and 2-3 adults all 44 years old. Our flight is arriving from Auckland in Queenstown at 10:00 am on Dec 28. We'd need to check in our Air B&B property booking first at Manata Lane Fernhill and go to your meet-up zone. Will we have enough time to do the Sky Dive on our first day--Dec 28 if we book the 2:30pm slot? What time do we need to be in your meet up zone? We're leaving on Dec 30 and our flight to Auckland is at 1:50pm.
