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.

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

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!

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

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.

The most amazing experience of my life. I want to do this again!
I did feel scared beforehand but the tandem guys were brilliant.
The adrenalin rush was unbelievable. And the view!!!
If you do one thing in Cairns - do the skydive.
The most memorable experience of my Aus travels.

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!

Once in a lifetime skydive. I was terrified but instructor was excellent. Put me at ease (as much as possible ) the free fall was unreal .... Wish I had got the video which you have to decide before you do the jump if you want it.... At that point I couldn't think straight so said no ...

Awesome. The only word I could use on the way back to Cairns after the jump. So glad I chose to do this rather than a bungee, the views from the plane climbing to 14,000 feet were spectacular alone. The staff were friendly and my tandem instructor was informative, professional and laid back. I have to do this again.

Absolutely incredible experience that I will always remember. This was my first time skydiving and to experience jumping out of a plane over looking the great barrier reef was amazing.

I was picked up at the pick-up point which was nearest to my accommodation. From the beginning I felt very comfortable. My tandem-partner was Phil who was really nice. One hour after the sky dive I could already stop by and pick up my video and photos.

Definitely was a fantastic experience. There's nothing like jumping out of a plane and nothing can really ruin it. The tandem jumpers were very professional and knew what they were doing. They made us feel comfortable. The receptionist was pretty rude and ignored us when we had questions. We were the second group to jump so she was busy with other things, but didn't have to act like she was better than us. Treated other jumpers pretty rude too. Ah well.....had a thrill and got back alive!

Amazing experience and well worth the price for the very knowledgable and experienced staff. My only and huge problem was the price of the video and pictures! Would not allow our gopro! Only the instructor could video/photograph while jumping. Truly a worthwhile experience!

Amazing! After my instructor told me he had over 16000 jumps, I wasn't worried anymore at all.

Great experience. The views weren't of the Reef while diving, only in the plane on the way up. The guide was very experienced and made the jump worthwhile.
