Skydiving is known, for very good reason, as life's ultimate thrill. It's the big daddy, the adventure and rush by which all others are measured. Amazingly, the buzz of free fall is an easy and safe experience, especially during a tandem skydiving adventure!
Nothing more to pay on the day! Your Australian Parachute Federation Levy is included in the price.
On the ground you'll be suited up in skydiving gear and your professional skydiving instructors will run through a few "dirt dives" – practice skydiving exits from mock aircraft. You'll also be taught the skydiving basics of canopy control and safe landing procedures. Once you're confident with this skydiving knowledge you'll enjoy a 20-minute flight to an altitude of up to 14,000 feet (over 4,200 metres) where, after a final check, it's time to hop out and take the quick way down!
The beauty of tandem skydiving is that it requires none of the usual intensive skydiving training, but offers 100 per cent of the mind-blowing, 200km/hr open-air thrill. The feeling is often described as floating on a cushion of air as you hurtle 7,500 feet through the sky in 60 seconds. The skydiving parachute is deployed at around 4,500 feet, offering an intensely serene experience and one of the world's greatest views – perfect for reflecting on the high-adrenalin skydiving adventure you've just enjoyed. During the five-minute glide to earth you'll be taught to control your direction and descent speed and, once you touch down, you'll be on a high for weeks – guaranteed.
Tandem Skydiving is for anyone looking for the ultimate rush. However, in order to meet our strict safety standards we have certain restrictions:
Free courtesy transfers are available from Cairns accommodation. Please advise where you will be staying at time of booking so we can arrange your transfers.
There are three trips daily departing 8am, 11am or 1pm (check availability on booking). You will need to allow half a day for the whole event.
What about spectators/photos? There is limited space for non-jumping passengers on the shuttle, simple enquire on booking for availability. DVD and an inspirational set of 24 stills are $120. A DVD alone is $99. DVD's are usually made on the day and handed to you after you have had sufficient time to ‘come back to earth’ and change out of your jumpsuit. Simply organise and pay for these lifelong memories at the drop zone on the day of your jump.
If you are worried that you won't get your jump done due to weather or time constraints, don't be. If you are unable to get your jump done in Innisfail, and you are travelling to Sydney, the Sydney branch will take you for a Tandem skydive any day of your choice at the same price, same MAX height 14,000ft at no extra charge and free return shuttle.
