What to Expect

The beauty of tandem skydiving is that you don’t have to worry about a thing. Leave it all to us – we have taken over 170,000 people skydiving! No training or prior experience is required. You are in the capable hands of your tandem master who will ensure your safety as you enjoy the ride. With the largest range of camera options and multi-lingual staff, your skydive will be unforgettable. 


What to expect:


Our super friendly and professional staff will explain everything you need to know before your skydive. All equipment is provided, including a jumpsuit, a harness and of course one of our experienced tandem master instructors. 


After meeting your tandem master, he'll gear you up and brief you on the skydive. You'll then board the plane and start your journey with a scenic flight over the largest lake in the Southern Hemisphere. 
As your altitude increases, so does your excitement! When you reach 15,000ft, you'll be ready to exit the plane and experience the unforgettable exhilaration of free-falling at over 200 kilometres per hour! 

After one minute of complete free-fall, catch your breath and take in the beautiful views as the parachute opens and you enjoy a 6-minute ride back down to Earth.

You can take as much footage as you like on the ground but there are strict rules on taking extra equipment in the plane. So unfortunately not, sorry! They cameramen do a minimum of 200 jumps before they begin training to carry a camera, and since they are working with lines and parachutes there are too many safety issues with bringing your GoPro along. They can take some amazing footage for you though!
