Take to the skies in a challenge that will get your adrenaline pumping! 

Jump out of an aircraft, attached to an experienced skydive professional and feel the wind in your face as your soar to your landing. This is a must-do activity for thrill seekers, as well as those who may need a little more persuasion. You will not regret it! 

 What can you expect from the day? 

  • You’ll receive comprehensive training before taking to the skies for your tandem skydive. 
  • You’ll be harnessed to an experienced parachute instructor at all times, as your prepare for the jump, and for the jump itself. 
  • You’ll jump from at least 10,000 feet – just like the professionals.
  • You’ll freefall at up to 120mph down to 5,000 feet, before the parachute is opened and you soar through the sky. 
  • The instructor will control your landing as you arrive safely back on the ground to a hero’s welcome!
