The Trip

A tandem skydive is considered by most to be the safest way to make your first jump, and it only takes half a day. Skydive Australia makes this process as easy as possible, including the transportation from your accommodations to the training site. © Skydive Cairns On a tandem skydive you and an experienced guide share a special double harness. The guide deploys the chute, and guides you both to the landing zone. Minimum age for this activity is 14 years.

The standard jump is from 14,000 feet with up to 60 seconds of free fall time before the chute opens 5,000ft above the ground.

After the chute opens you will glide under the canopy for 4 or 5 minutes, a to finally land in the drop zone.

Everyone gets a certificate to verify the stories they will tell their grandparents or grandchildren someday. There are both morning and afternoon jump sessions, plan on spending half the day.
