Experience the thrill of tandem skydiving with a professional instructor over North Wollongong Beach beach, located just south of Sydney. Safely attached to your skydiving instructor, jump at 14,000 feet (4,267 meters). Feel the adrenaline rush of a 60-second free fall at speeds of up to 120 mph (193 kph) before the parachute opens and you glide down to earth. This small-group experience limits the numbers to eight people, ensuring customized attention from your instructor. Round-trip transportation from Sydney CBD to the drop zone is included.
Wollongong Tandem Skydive
Travel from Sydney to Wollongong, a seaside suburb that is known for great beaches, surfing, food, bars and shops. You have the option to drive to the drop zone yourself, perhaps taking the scenic Grand Pacific Drive, or you can choose pickup at central locations around Sydney such as Kings Cross, Bondi Beach or Coogee Beach (see Important Info tab for details).
When you meet your professional skydiving instructor in Stuart Park, get started with introductions and a thorough safety briefing. Hear details about how the jump proceeds then put on the provided skydiving gear, including protective goggles and a harness. If friends want to watch you jump, they can head to a designated viewing area, or even go up with you in the plane for an additional fee (please arrange when booking).
A short flight takes you up to jump altitude. Marvel at the coastal scenery below you with clear views of the southern Sydney beaches, Illawarra and Royal National Park. When your plane reaches optimum altitude, your instructor securely fastens your harnesses together and gets ready for takeoff. Gather up your courage and jump with your instructor, feeling the adrenaline course through you as you free fall at high speed for about one minute. Then your instructor releases the parachute and you float gently for about five minutes before touching down on terra firma.
Your skydiving experience is commemorated with a complimentary skydive certificate, and you have the option to purchase video and photo packages of your jump.
Afterward, you can find plenty of great options to celebrate at nearby beaches, cafes, bars and more, or you can return to Sydney with the provided transportation.
