Looking for that one jump which offers the thrill of free-fall, followed by a lengthy canopy ride?

It takes 2 to Tandem, and this involves a parachute system, and student harness, so you and the tandem instructor can be firmly attached. The system is suited to those with a disability.

Two people being attached to each other is an unusual way to spend some time together, however it is a totally rewarding experience to share.

What happens on the day?

BRIEF

You will be fully briefed on the entire jump by the Tandem Instructor.

Tandem Skydives take place between 10,000 and 13,000 feet!

EXITING THE AIRCRAFT

As you exit the aircraft, securely attached to your Instructor, you will experience a thrill like no other. At 6,000 feet the Tandem Instructor will open the canopy, enabling you take in the wonderful bird’s eye view of the glorious North Coast under a large parachute for a peaceful seven minute ride back to earth. The Tandem Instructor will guide the canopy back down, but you can be hands on if you wish and help steer the parachute.

DESCENT

Remember to enjoy the view - you will be able to see for miles and you will find out why birds sing.

Experience the thrill of freefall and reach a speed of around 120 miles per hour plus
