IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR SKYDIVE
Go to the front desk at your allocated time. Complete all the paperwork and remember your jump load number. Delays due to weather and air traffic conditions may occur so check with our friendly crew for an estimated landing time. Skydiving can be a half day activity.
Remember that we will check you temperature. If you are feeling unwell or your temperature is over 37.4º, we will ask you to rebook for at least 14 days from your original checkin day.
Grab a Video & Photo Package
Highly recommended, especially if it’s your first jump! Our video and photo packages are the perfect way to remember your skydive forever! They are also the best way to share the experience with your loved ones and to brag with your friends.
Gear Up / Training
One of our crew will give you your jumping gear and a life jacket to wear on your skydive. Before boarding the aircraft you will be fitted a harness and you will receive the training for the jump. Goggles will be provided to you a few minutes before exiting the aircraft. Be sure to listen to the instructions so you know what to do and don’t hesitate to ask our crew as many questions as you want – we are here to help!
Meet your Tandem Instructor
Your tandem instructor will meet you and commence filming your video with a pre-jump interview. Smile for the camera!
Ready to Roll
Just before reaching jumping height, your instructor will perform all the last-minute adjustments and will let you know when it’s time to go skydiving! Smile, wave, scream at the camera and enjoy the ride. You will experience the amazing thrill of freefall for up to an insane 35-40 seconds, followed by a 5-7 minute canopy flight.
Return the provided jump gear to our crew. You will then receive your certificate. If you purchased a video and photo package, this will be sent to you by email the same day of your jump.
Come back with your friends and family to share this amazing experience!

Get a good night’s sleep before your big jump as the epic adrenalin rush can be exhausting! You must not have consumed any drugs or alcohol in the eight hours preceding your skydive, and you should not scuba dive 24 hours before skydiving.
Wear casual clothing, comfortable pants that are OK if they get a stain or rip. No skirts, dresses or anything that flaps around. You should wear closed shoes that will not fall off in freefall. At height is always 15 to 20 degrees colder than at ground level so bring a few thin layers to make sure you are nice and warm during your skydive.

If the answer is “No” – Awesome news!. If the answer is “Yes” – We are going to have to ask you to reschedule your jump for at least 14 days from now at no charge. This is for the safety of our staff, their families, and our other customers.” – Our staff can help you to rebook your jump.

Is my Harness tight enough?
Yes, it is. The harness is left a little bit loose to allow movement when securing it to your instructor before you exit the plane. It will be tightened again before you exit.
Where are my goggles?
Your instructor has your goggles. You will be told when and how to put them on just before it’s time to jump out.
How may jumps do the instructors do a day?
It depends on the season, day of the week and of course, how many customers are booked in any given day. During the busy period, the instructor could do up to 12 jumps a day!
What are the golf balls for?
The golf balls are connected to the ripcord, this is what we pull to release the parachute.
What happens if the parachute doesn’t open?
On the very rare occasion that the main parachute doesn’t open completely or properly, your instructor will release that canopy and open the reserve parachute.
At what height does the parachute open?
Instructors open their parachute at approximately 4.000 feet / 1200 meters.
Why do we have life jackets?
They are just a safety precaution because of how close we are to the water.
Do you ever get sick of jumping?
Never! Skydiving is an amazing experience and every time is a little bit different.
