Tandem Skydiving in Cairns

Tandem Skydiving in Cairns

What is Tandem Skydive?

Step out of your comfort zone and gear up for some adrenaline-pumping fun by Skydiving in Cairns. With tandem skydiving, you will not freefall out of an aeroplane solo -- you’ll instead be accompanied by a licensed skydive instructor. Before your freefall, you’ll be attached via a harness to an instructor, who will control every part of your skydive, from the jump and landing to the deployment of the parachute and appropriate body positions to adapt. During this period, you’ll have 5-7 minutes to immerse in the jaw-dropping views while you glide back down to Earth.

Why go Skydiving in Cairns?

The first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Cairns in Australia, is that it is home to the iconic Great Barrier Reef -- the world’s largest coral reef ecosystem that stretches across over 2,000 km. There are three primary locations you can go skydiving in and around Cairns: Airlie Beach, Mission Beach and in the heart of Cairns.

Tandem Skydiving in Cairns - weather

Since any skydiving experience is dependent on weather, your dive can be rescheduled or cancelled if there’s rain, poor visibility, fog, heavy wind. Prepare to spend about 3-4 hours at the site and ensure that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled skydive to complete all the paperwork and training.

After a routine checkup, you will met your instructor who will take you through a quick training session. You'll be given instructions and tips to follow during your dive and safety measures to keep in mind. Use this time to clear your queries with your trainer. You will then strap yourself up to the skydiving gear along with your jumpmaster.

After a quick check of your gears and equipment, you will get into the airplane to climb to 15,000 ft. The jumpmaster will be in control of your dive so you can enjoy the picturesque views of Australia.

After you jump from the plane, your acceleration towards the Earth can have you falling at 200 kmph. But don't worry, the scary part lasts only about 60 seconds. After the parachute is deployed, you will have 5-7 minutes to gaze out at the horizon. From this skydiving facility, you can see the beautiful ocean, the lush rainforest, and of course, the highlight -- the reef!

Tips For Skydiving In Cairns

  1. Do not overeat or starve before the activity. Give yourself enough nourishment to make this activity fun for yourself.
  2. Go ahead and ask to see your instructors license if you want to.
  3. Get enough rest before skydiving. While it is normal to feel excited and nervous the day before your experience, a good night’s sleep will help you enjoy the activity better.
  4. Understand that skydiving is dependent on the fickle nature of the weather. Better not go for the activity than free fall through 15,000 feet of haze.
  5. Familiarise yourself with the signs used to communicate mid-air as the verbal medium will be rather useless during free fall.
