What You Can Expect

Reef and Rainforest Tandem Sky Dive in Cairns

Reef and Rainforest Tandem Sky Dive in Cairns

A tandem sky dive is the perfect introduction to sky diving and what better place to do it then the tropical paradise of Far North Queensland.

Your highly trained instructor will give you a brief 15-minute safety and training session before you strap on your parachute and get ready for the flight of your life. Soaring to a height of up to 14,000ft, the drop zone is located between the reef and the rainforest for the best aerial views of Tropical North Queensland. Feel the exhilaration of a short freefall before the parachute is released and you float gently to the ground.

Nestled between the world-famous Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage listed rainforests, the views over Cairns are nothing short of spectacular. To the north lies the ancient Daintree Rainforest, to the west the Atherton Tablelands. The blue waters of the Coral Sea lie to the west, with Great Barrier Reef islands including Green Island and Fitzroy Island visible just off the coast. There's no better way to see the natural beauty of the whole area in such a short time.

Photos and DVDs of your sky dive are available to purchase on the day, and roundtrip transport from Cairns hotels is included.

Skydive was amazing !!
If you are nervous about sky diving for the first time don't be! My tandem master was THE BEST, made me feel super safe and was very enthusiastic. The location of the jump is stunning and I recommend getting the fabulous pics and video. You will regret it if you don't

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Unbelievable! I've wanted to skydive for years and never quite got around it to it. I'm so glad my first jump was in Cairns with it's stunning scenery, and amazing weather. The team were an awesome bunch, too. Would do this again in a heartbeat!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

No doubt that it's an experience of a life time and I would recommend to anyone! The divers are quite cheeky in that they joke around trying to scare you haha, I felt so safe though! I would also recommend buying the DVD and pictures so you remember the experience

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Tour company was efficient and communicative when there was a delay due to rain. The partners that you jumped with were fun and supportive. If you are considering doing this but are hesitate, give it a try, it is awesome and not scary at all when with your leader.

What an experience! This was an awesome place to do my first skydive. The organisation and it's people were amazing and I can't speak highly enough of them. They made me feel very comfortable and not the least bit nervous, just very excited! Definitely get the dvd/photo package which is very professionally done and a fantastic souvenir. Brilliant, thanks guys!
