Securely attached to your experienced tandem instructor, you will be guided through your entire skydive. As the excitement builds, your expert instructor will prepare you for the countdown and together you will make the ultimate jump out of the plane. After you experience free falling at speeds of 220kmph for up to 60 seconds, your instructor will pull the parachute and you will soar like a bird for 5-7 minutes taking in the panoramic views.
If you are feeling brave, take control and steer the parachute, don't worry, we've got your back! You'll then make a gentle landing down on the beach and will have a big smile on your face for the rest of the day!
