Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my skydive take?

Whilst we endeavour to complete your skydive within 3-4 hours, skydiving can be a full-day activity. Please allow for unforeseen delays due to events such as unfavourable weather and air traffic control.

We recommend loose, casual clothing with fully enclosed shoes, such as running or sports trainers. Hiking boots and high heels are not appropriate.

If the weather is unfavourable on the day of your booking we will reschedule your jump to another date that best suits you.

If the operator has to cancel your jump due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, your booking will be re-scheduled to another date that suits you, up to 12 months from the date of the original jump.

Yes. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions section for full details on weight restrictions and surcharges

By law, the minimum age to tandem skydive in Australia is 16 years old. If under 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must be present on the day of the jump.

Unfortunately not. CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) regulations prevent loose articles being taken up in the aircraft if the door is being opened mid-flight. However, we do offer a full video and photos service for you to choose from.

Yes, but we advise you wait 24 hours after your scuba dive before coming to skydive. You can scuba dive straight after your skydive though so if you’d like to do both and are restricted on time consider booking your skydive first.


You can buy video/photo packages at the venue on the day of your skydive. Photos Only $129 / Photos + Videos $179 / Dedicated $269 / Ultimate $369

Hell Yes!
Since tandem skydiving is accompanied, the core activity is well suited to people with mobility needs. The main considerations are how to get to and enter the aircraft. At most drop zones, on most occasions, if you need to you can drive your wheelchair directly to the plane or helicopter (on the few occasions that this isn't possible, alternative arrangements will always be made)., Getting into the aircraft will always be done with the assistance of your instructor.

We do our best to get everyone skydiving, however, safety comes first. Each disability is different and for this reason you will require a medical certificate from your doctor stating it is safe for you to skydive. It is important to inform us of your disability before making a booking. A few things we need to know: What kind of disability do you have? (e.g. Paraplegic). How will we need to customize your experience? (e.g. Need assistance to plane and from landing point). Are you on any medication for your condition? Etc

After receiving a booking confirmation from us, we will arrange for you to meet our Drop Zone Safety officer and run through the procedures that need to be undertaken BEFORE your skydive (E.g. making sure that the harness will fit correctly and without discomfort).
