Our most popular course and probably the easiest way to experience the thrill of freefall followed by an exhilarating canopy ride

Experience parachuting without the fuss of an intensive course.

After a short briefing you will be ready to jump from up to 13,000 feet*. Training is provided on the day of your skydive and students are strapped to the front of an experienced Tandem Instructor who is there to operate the parachute and ensure you receive the best experience. 

Once you exit the aircraft from up to 13,000 feet you will accelerate to around 120 mph, covering each thousand feet in approximately five seconds. At 5,000 feet the Instructor will deploy the parachute which will then be controlled by both persons until you land softly and gently some four minutes later.
