Tandem skydiving is the fastest and easiest way to experience the excitement of freefalling. You will be attached to the front of an experienced Tandem Jump Master and enjoy the definitive adrenaline rush – all without the intensive training or responsibility of opening your own parachute!
You'll begin your adventure by being kitted out in a jumpsuit. A simple ground briefing will follow, which includes practice exits from a mock-up plane, along with an overview of canopy control and landing procedures.
You'll then climb into the plane, take off, then begin the twenty-minute climb to an altitude between 9,000 and 14,000 ft.
At this point, a final systems check will be carried out. You will have reached the point of no return. The only way down is to jump! Nothing can prepare you for the sensation of stepping out into the sky – but you'll find that there is nothing more exhilarating.
You won't feel like you're falling. Instead, you'll feel like you're floating on a cushion of air as you travel over 200 KPH. The wind will rush into your face. Your heart will race. And you'll find yourself shouting… WOOHOO!!!
Skydiving – After the Rush
Once you've reached 4,500 ft, your jump master will deploy the parachute. You'll slow down and start a controlled, comfortable descent to the ground. The silence will be amazing. The view, sensational. And you'll enjoy both from the best vantage point imaginable.
You'll be safe on the ground within minutes, with memories that will last a lifetime.
Tandem skydiving is – without question – one of life's greatest adventures. The feeling is indescribable and the buzz lasts for weeks. If you want a taste of being a skydiver, a tandem skydive is the way to go.
But if you love to fly, learning to skydive is a must!
Learn to Skydive
The Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) course is the first step to becoming a licensed skydiver. It consists of 9 stages, and you'll be landing your own parachute on the very first stage!
Not all drop zones offer lessons, but the skydiving schools we've brought together have solid reputations and adhere to the highest safety standards.
You will learn everything you need to know to jump safely, and get the most fun out of your experience. Before long, you'll be skydiving solo – flying high above the earth with the best view in the world!
