LIVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF YOUR LIFE!
Our tandem jump is by far the quickest, safest and most convenient way to experience the thrill of a real-life free fall skydive.
Your instructor will begin with a short training and safety briefing.
After this you will understand the equipment and the sequence of events that follow. You and your instructor will then share a tandem harness while free falling from 10,000 or 14,000 feet at speeds of 120 mph or more!!
After a minute and few seconds of free fall, you or your instructor will deploy a dual sized parachute and together you'll fly safely back to the ground for a soft, comfortable landing.
Your instructor will take care of everything, allowing you to relax and enjoy an awe inspiring canopy ride with the most amazing tropical views you could ever imagine!
Be sure to ask about getting video and still photographs of your tandem jump. Make your jump last a lifetime!!
Skydiving puts all your earthly fears into manageable perspective. It inspires such complete focus of attention, that all other worries, aggravations and frustrations are forgotten. It charges you with such energy and spirit, that vitality lost to the mundane world snaps back with invigorating speed. Skydiving inspires freedom of spirit, and attracts some of the most interesting people on earth. Plus, it’s really fun to talk about!
What does freefall feel like?
Freefall is not the "roller coaster drop" feeling most people expect it would be. It is a comfortable sensation of floating and support, with a slight pressure of air against your body. Freefall is the closest thing to human flight, especially when falling "relative" with other skydivers. In relation to other skydivers in the air, a jumper can move forward, backwards, up, down and all around in the sky. He or she can dive vertically to over 200 mph or achieve horizontal movement over the ground up to 60 mph. The constant air flow allows aerial maneuvers with precision and control.
Can you breathe?
Yes. The free fall and parachute environments do not cause any difficulty in breathing; however some students have commented that it was awkward to breathe during the first few seconds. This is caused not by lack of oxygen but by the surge of adrenaline and excitement of first jumping out of the aircraft. Sometimes when a person is startled they draw Ina breath of air and hold it. When you exit the airplane you must continue to breathe in and breathe out.
How fast will I'll be falling?
Typical free fall speeds are approximately 120mph although this can increase or decrease with body size and position.
What altitude do we jump from?
10,500 feet approximately
We ask that you please show at time of appointment. If you are running late please call. Plan for your skydive to be a half or an all day event.
Comfortable clothes and shoes, like workout clothes, shorts and a t-shirt is recommended; jeans are restricting to leg movement. You will be wearing a jumpsuit over your clothing. If you wear contact lenses or prescriptions glasses tell your instructor so that the instructor can fit you with appropriate goggles.
