The Sunshine Coast is not only a natural beauty to behold at beach level, but you can view the big picture from up to 15,000 feet high when you book a skydiving package online at Adrenaline.
Your departure point will be a specialised lounge at Caloundra Airport. From there, you will be comprehensively briefed on all safety features and guided step by step on this experience of a lifetime.
You’ll take off on your 20-minute scenic flight, suited up and ready to roll, while taking in the breathtaking coastal splendour of the Sunshine Coast and beyond.
Once you reach altitude, you and your tandem mater will be exiting the plane, travelling at speeds of up to 200km per hour for an insanely life-changing free fall of up to 70 seconds. Having surmounted the worst of your fears, the best is yet to come. Safely harnessed to your professional instructor, you’ll float under canopy for five minutes, absorbing the spectacular seaside vista while experiencing the most heightened elevation.
You’ll touch down in style from your tandem jump on the powder-soft beach drop zone. But the post-experience high is bound to revive your desire for more tandem skydiving action.
Adrenaline offers a range of tandem skydiving at 15,000 feet in Caloundra packages, with the option of free return transfers from nearby Sunshine Coast locations.
What to wear skydiving in Caloundra?
You’ll want to feel as relaxed and unencumbered as possible, before, during and after your tandem skydive.
For this reason, it is recommended that you wear loose, flexible, breathable clothing and lightweight footwear for maximum comfort underneath your regulation skydiving suit. You should also bring sunglasses to avert the glare on your scenic flight and apply plenty of SPF to combat UV rays once you plunge forth in the skies.
What should I do the night before skydiving in Caloundra?
You should definitely get a good rest on the night before your tandem jump. You’ll want to feel as refreshed as possible and with excess energy reserves to spare. It’s important not to drink excessively at least 24 hours before your planned tandem skydiving activity. Your headspace will need to be clean and pure for the big event.
On the morning of your jump, you should also fuel up on a light, healthy breakfast, but making sure not to overload.

But once you plunge forth, attached to your skydiving instructor, and float like a bird after your lightning-fast free fall, you’ll soon put everything in perspective and be forever changed as a result.
What do I need to know on the day of skydiving in Caloundra?
