Tandem Skydiving

Make a tandem skydive.

What is a Tandem Skydive?

The first step in most skydiving instruction courses and the thrill of a lifetime for most weekend adventure seekers, a Tandem is the start either way and fun no matter how you look at it. You will be attached to the instructor who will be wearing the parachute system. Your Tandem experience will start with a brief ground course on what you will be expected to do and what to expect. This course will cover the adjustment of the harness, how to board the aircraft, what will happen during the ascent to altitude, the exit procedures, what to expect, etc. This is a general outline of your big day. If you have any questions during this time please ask the instructor because the clearer it is to you before the more fun we'll have and the safer it will be!

The primary goal of this jump is basic freefall body position, introduction to canopy flight and just having fun.

Following the brief you will take to the sky! Following a thirty minute ride to altitude you will exit 11,000 feet above the airport and enjoy about fifty seconds of free-fall followed by ten minutes of canopy flight before returning to the ground to the resounding cheers of your friends and family!


Whatever time you book please understand that skydiving is highly dependent on several factors including: weather, airplane, sunlight, and other skydivers. This means that while you may book 2:00pm tandem it might mean that you won't get to jump at that time. We ask that you try and set aside at least half a day to this experience and be patient, we will get to everyone.

Please arrive 30 - 60 minutes before your appointment. There is paperwork to complete, decisions to be made, and the briefing. If you arrive early you can get this out of the way and watch others take the plunge, watch a few videos, and chat with everyone before your jump.

I’ve been jumping since 1986, when my kid told me he was jumping here, I came to check the quality of their teaching, services, equipment and staff.
I fell in love with this awesome family!
Today I was blessed enough to be in the same load with my son on his first training jump.

Very down to earth and friendly staff. I did a tandem one weekend on a Saturday and immediately signed up for the ground course to start my path in getting my jumps in to be licensed. I took the ground school the following Friday and as soon as the winds die down I'll be making my first 'solo' jump. It was the most blissful feeling imagined. I'm already jacked about this weekend! The staff are very knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have.

I can't say enough good things about this place! The staff went above and beyond for us, 15 awesome jumps, grilled burgers and hot dogs, engaged with all of us and overall made the day perfect! Thank you thank you thank you!
