Nothing comes close to matching the extreme adrenaline rush and exhilaration of skydiving. It’s life’s ultimate thrill, and it’s easy to tick off your bucket list with a tandem skydive jump from up to 12,000ft over a spectacular Gold Coast beach. You get the buzz of freefall while the work is taken care of by your tandem skydive instructor.
Your Gold Coast skydiving adventure will start on the ground when you’re suited up in skydiving gear and your professional instructor runs you through what you need to know. That includes a few practice skydiving exits (or ‘dirt dives’) from a mock aircraft, learning the basics of canopy control and safe landing procedures.
Once you’re ready, you’ll jump on board the aircraft for a 20 minute scenic flight to an altitude of up to 12,000 feet. Then it’s time to jump! Jumping out of a plane is every bit as nerve-racking as you would think, but it’s worth it. Strapped to your tandem skydiving master, you’ll hurtle 7,500 feet through the air at mind-blowing speeds of up to 200km/hr.
After about 45 seconds of adrenaline-pumping free fall, your tandem skydive instructor will deploy the parachute and you’ll enjoy a serene canopy ride for the remaining 4,500 feet. For five minutes you’ll glide towards the pristine Gold Coast beach landing spot while your instructor teaches you how to control your direction and descent speed. Soak up the spectacular views over the Gold Coast, beach, and ocean, and enjoy the high of skydiving long after touching down.
There’s nothing more to pay on the day, as your Australian Parachute Federation Levy is included in the price. All you have to do is decide you’re game enough to jump, and enjoy the experience of a lifetime!
