About This Experience

General Information hide

Leap from a plane approximately 9000 feet above the ground strapped to an instructor and freefall for 30 seconds! After a briefing on training and safety, you will completely understand the equipment and the sequence of events. Your instructor will take care of everything which will allow you to completely enjoy yourself during your Tandem Skydive!

You and your jumpmaster will board the aircraft wearing a dual harness assembly. Once you reach your jump altitude you will exit the aircraft securely harnessed to your instructor for an unbelievable freefall at 120 M.P.H! After your parachute opens you will have a scenic 6 to 8 minute ride.

Because your instructor is with you all the way to landing, there is no need for you to worry about anything during your jump except to remember to relax and have fun. This exhilarating jump feels like nothing else!
