Tandem Skydive

It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft at 15,000ft into thin air. Harnessed by space age materials to an experienced qualified Jumpmaster, you step out that aircraft door and for some 60 seconds, you plummet toward the ground at 200kph. The Jumpmaster will deploy the reinforced tandem canopy controlling your entire skydive. Expect sensory overload as your mind, body and soul fight against every natural self preservatory urge.  You will receive a personal achievement certificate upon completion of your skydive.

Maximum Weight: 100kg.

Age Limits: There are no age limits, however 18 years and under require written consent from a parent or guardian.

Suitable for Children: Yes. 

Duration: The canopy ride takes approximately 5 minutes.  Please allow 3 hours for the entire experience.
