What You Can Expect

Reef and Rainforest Tandem Sky Dive in Cairns

Reef and Rainforest Tandem Sky Dive in Cairns

With an experienced professional strapped to your back, a tandem skydive is the ultimate way to truly appreciate the Great Barrier Reef as  you look down on it from thousands of feet in the air. Start with a 15-minute lesson and safety briefing from your highly trained diving instructor before hopping in the plane and taking off into the sky.

Your drop zone sits between the World Heritage–listed rainforest and the reef, providing fabulous views of this Tropical North Queensland paradise. Surrounding Cairns are the Atherton Tablelands, the Daintree Rainforest, the Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef’s Fitzroy Island and Green Island.  

As you jump out of the plane securely attached to your instructor, enjoy the thrilling freefall before your parachute is released for the float down to the ground. If you wish to preserve your adventure in time, you may purchase photos and videos on the day.

My tandem/instructor was Victor. He was very friendly he gave clear and precise instructions making me feel safe. The whole experience was incredible and not as scary I thought it was going to be. It was a beautiful day but we fell thought a cloud which was amazing!!!
One this to remember is that the cost of the photos and videos are not included in the price and are almost as expensive as the jump itself so keep that in mind but its worth every penny.

This was a well organised event. All the staff were professional and I felt that safety was paramount. The jump itself was amazing: you are securely attached to your guide who keeps on checking and tightening the buckles. Then you swing your legs out of the door. Next you know you are dropping downwards. No time to panic - it just seems natural. The freefall makes your ears pop but it all happens so fast that it is hard to take it all in first time round. Once the parachute is deployed things go quiet and peaceful and the view is amazing from so high up almost the height of turboprops.
The guide was clearly competent and in control so I had no worries at all - I could just enjoy the experience.
Landing: You hold your legs up and the guide lands on his feet and you walk forward. Easy. Some jumpers slipped along the grass a bit but that was no worry - the whole thing is sureprisingly gentle
Wear: they offer protective gear but most people didn't use it. They provide face visors for the first bit, then you can take these off once the parachute opens. Trainers are good I wore shorts and a t-shirt.
You need to be flexible: the idea is to bend neck back at the start and flex body and knees.
I am 54 years old and have dodgy knee and I managed it perfectly ok.
Note: for obvious safety reasons you empty pockets and take off necklaces. You can't tkae your own camera as it would fly off somewhere!
The cost doesn't include the Tax nor the photo/video stuff so this adds quite a bit so allow for this. You do need at least the pictures. Each guide has a GoPro atttached to his wrist. Excellent quality and well worth the cost about 80 pictures are taken, plus a very professionally edited video of 4-5 mins with soundtrack.
Before you jump you are sent an email to register yourself with the Aus Parachute club, a legal requirement and for 30 more you can have personal insurance too.

2nd time I've been mad enough to jump out of a perfectly good working plane, and to be fair I'll do it all over again as it was amazing and a thrill of a life time. Well organised and felt very safe with this company. The staff are friendly and will make your jump truly memorable, with pictures and a video of the experience small extra charge though but worth it.
