Make a Tandem Skydive from 2 miles high! Securely harnessed to your tandem skydiving instructor, you will be in freefall for 50 seconds doing speeds in excess of 120mph for the first mile of the skydive before your tandem instructor deploys the parachute. Once the parachute has been deployed he will guide you through a 7 minute canopy ride before returning you safely back to terra firma.
To experience every aspect of our sport on your very first jump, a Tandem Skydive is just the thing!
Following a short pre-jump briefing, you will experience the thrill of freefall and even learn the basics of steering and landing a modern 'square' gliding parachute, while securely attached to a highly experienced Instructor.All tandem instructors are very experienced freefall parachutists who hold BPA Tandem Instructor ratings.
You will have a parachute specially designed for two people. You'll take an aircraft to around 13,000ft (approx. 2 miles high!) where you'll leave the aircraft with your instructor.
Falling at 120mph, you descend to 5,000ft in around just 40 seconds, where your instructor will open the parachute and fly you safely back to earth! You'll have around 6 minutes under the parachute to enjoy breathtaking and unique views of the local area.
On the day of your Skydive your Instructor will explain in detail what you will have to do and what will take place during the flight up, the freefall descent and the ride down under the parachute. This briefing normally takes around 20 minutes.
After this, you will be provided with a skydiver's jumpsuit to go over your clothes. After fitting the tandem parachute harness (and appropriate headgear and goggles) it will take just 20 to 25 minutes on the way up in the aircraft - then it's out into the blue!
