Enjoy the unrivalled thrill of freefalling towards the ground from 10,000 feet up in the air with this adrenaline-pumping tandem skydiving experience. Receive a thorough safety briefing on skydiving and proper landing techniques before climbing into the plane and heading skywards. After being securely harnessed to a qualified instructor, get ready to step into the air! Having jumped from the plane, experience around 30 seconds of exhilarating freefall before the instructor opens the parachute and takes control. Then all that's left to do is enjoy the view and gently float back down to earth. For an additional cost on the day, buy a video of the jump to take home and show off to friends and family.
