Tandem Skydive

The Thrill of a Lifetime

Tandem skydiving is a type of skydiving where the student, also known as a passenger, is wearing a harness that attaches to the instructor's harness. In this configuration the instructor is wearing the parachute and the passenger is attached to the instructor; both use the same parachute. This is the most commonly known type of skydiving and it is perfect for instruction and for those seeking a minimal introduction to parachuting before taking the ride of lifetime.

What to expect...

When you arrive for your tandem skydive you will receive a brief ground class to familiarize you with the harness and equipment. You will then learn how high you will be jumping, how long the skydive will last, and what to expect during the dive. You can expect the following:

  • Lots of wind in your face
  • The best view in Eastern North Carolina
  • A twenty minute ride to 11,000ft
  • About a 45 second free-fall
  • Approximately a 10 minute canopy flight
  • More adreneline than you can handle!

The people are all great and a joy to be around, they will educate you on the questions you may have and the setting itself is spectacular. They will make sure you have the best experience possible. I hung around all day waiting for my chance to jump and it looked like the opportunity wasn't going to come but at the last minute the skies cleared and it was the perfect setting for the perfect jump. John is an excellent instructor! I jumped with a beautiful sunset view over Washington. I can't wait to get more jumps in towards my A license! If you are on the verge of doing it, go ahead and make it a yes and take a leap of faith! This is the place you want to start your skydiving adventures.
