Skydive Cairns is the premier skydiving company in Australia. This site has been written with the novice and experienced skydiver in mind. It really is something that needs to be experience to be believed. The feeling is beyond compare.
Tandem Skydive is the ultimate opportunity to experience the freedom and exhilaration of the fastest human powered sport on earth. From the doorstep of your accommodation, to a spectacular flight with views of the Reef and Rainforest and through the sensation of freefall, the instructors of Skydive Cairns will guide you all the way.
The great advantage of a tandem skydive is that you don’t need any experience, only a 10 minute instruction and training and you are on your way. You'll be attached to your instructor and few moments later, exit the aircraft at up to 14,000 ft and skydiving to earth at speed 200 kph. This is one of the most extreme adrenalin sensations you'll ever experience - imagine free falling from up to 14,000 ft (4000 m), for up to 60 seconds exhilarating free fall with your professional Tandem Master. Then your instructor will pull the parachute cord and together you fly under canopy and you can enjoy spectacular views of the Great Barrier Reeft and World Heritage Rainforest for approximately 4-5 minutes, descending slowly, making gentle turns through the sky. You can also assist in steering the parachute during the ride down and then you safely land on the drop-zone.
