byron bay tandem skydive

There are two primary forms of skydiving at Gold Coast: Accelerated Freefall (AFF) and tandem skydiving. While you would need specific training and licenses to try AFF, tandem skydiving as an option is available for everyone.

With tandem skydiving, you’ll not attempt a freefall solo -- instead, you will be accompanied by a professional skydive instructor every step of the way. Before the jump, while in the airplane, you’ll be attached with a harness to an instructor; they will control the skydive, from the jump and landing to deployment of the parachute and appropriate body positions to adapt.

Tandem skydiving is the best option for first-time skydivers or those looking to learn more about the basics of this adventure sport.

What to Expect on a Gold Coast Skydive?

Before the skydive
Your Gold Coast skydive experience will begin once you reach the drop zone. It is recommended that you check-in about 15 minutes before your assigned slot, allowing you to complete essential paperwork in time. After this, you’ll have to undertake a standard health check-up, where your height, age, weight and other relevant factors will be checked to ensure you’re fit for a skydive.

Training for the skydive
After the health check, you’ll meet your skydive instructor team. You’ll go through a training session with them, where you’ll be given the necessary instructions about your skydive. You will learn about basic skydive body movements to remember before and during the jump, what to expect, what to avoid, etc. This session should last between 20-30 minutes.

The skydive
After your training session, you’ll be provided with all the necessary equipment for the skydive. Your tandem skydive instructor will guide you towards the aircraft. To reach the 15,000 ft skydive height, you’ll fly for about 20 minutes. Before the jump, your instructor will attach themselves to you and alert you to get into position right before the jump.

Now comes the moment you’ve been waiting for: the freefall. You’ll freefall for about 60 seconds with your instructor until they release the parachute. At this point, everything will slow down a bit, actually giving you time to soak in the magnificent view below. Nothing will prepare you for the view of the sparkling ocean, lush landscape and clouds around. You will freefall for about 5-7 minutes, after which your instructor will navigate a safe landing back at base.
