Skydive in tropical paradise and it will become an unforgettable experience. Warm tropical climate and spectacular views of Cairns city, the Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage Rainforest. Why look else where?
What to Expect
Tandem skydive is the ultimate opportunity to experience the freedom and exhilaration of the fastest human powered sport on earth. From the doorstep of your accommodation, to a spectacular flight with views of the Reef and Rainforest and through the sensation of freefall, you will be guided all the way. It really is something that needs to be experience to be believed. The feeling is not comparable.
The great advantage of a tandem skydive is that you don’t need any experience, only a 10 minute instruction and training and you are on your way. You'll be attached to your instructor and few moments later, exit the aircraft at up to 14,000 ft and skydiving to earth at speed 200 kph. This is one of the most extreme adrenalin sensations you'll ever experience - imagine free falling from up to 14,000 ft (4000 m), for up to 60 seconds exhilarating free fall with your professional Tandem Master. Then, your instructor will pull the parachute cord and together you will fly under canopy and enjoy spectacular views of the Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage Rainforest and tropical city Cairns for approximately 4-5 minutes, descending slowly.
You can also assist in steering the parachute during the ride down and then you safely land on the drop-zone.
