Where Can I Go Skydiving in Melbourne?

What Are The Different Types of Skydiving in Melbourne?

In Melbourne, both experienced and beginners can go skydiving. 

How outdoor skydiving works is simple: strap on the harness, fly up to a certain altitude and skydive out of an airplane. Your free-fall lasts about 60 seconds and after reaching the designated altitude, your parachute is deployed. After that, you glide over Earth for 6-8 minutes. There are two sub-types of outdoor skydiving: tandem skydiving and solo skydiving.

Tandem Skydiving
Solo Skydiving

If you opt for a tandem skydive, you’ll be attached to a professional skydiver by a harness and he controls the jump completely, allowing you to enjoy the view. This is the most preferred option by those who are new to skydiving since it is safe, the required preparation is minimal and most of the work in the air is done by your instructor. 

Those who opt for tandem skydiving go through about 30 minutes of coaching; your instructor tells you what to do before and during your jump. Movements, actions and other instructions, including basic safety rules and guidelines. During the skydive, your instructor controls the jump, the parachute deployment and the landing!

Solo skydiving is ideal for experts and professionals since you control your dive entirely: from the jump and parachute deployment to the landing. It’s not strictly for those who are licensed; even first-time skydivers can jump solo. However, training for your first solo dive requires dedicated time and effort. 

You’ll learn all about the different equipment, their functionalities and uses, how to exit the aircraft, control and positioning of your body during the fall, what to do during common emergency situations and more. There are various levels to clear before becoming a licensed skydiver.

For skydiving in Melbourne, those above the legal age of 18 can go skydiving. Individuals between the age of 12-17 need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. All those skydiving in Melbourne must carry a valid government ID to the diving center. 

Individuals below 95 kg can go skydiving. Those between 95-110 kg need to pay a nominal surcharge amount, while those above 110 kg will be subject to a fitness assessment. Pregnant women, those with heart conditions, epilepsy, dislocated joints, etc., should avoid skydiving. 

Avoid consumption of alcohol and other narcotics up to 8 hours before your jump. Avoid scuba diving up to 24 hours before your skydive.

It is recommended that skydivers wear comfortable, athletic clothing for the experience. Since the harness will be tightly secured, it is best if you wear clothing that won’t get stuck or tear. Avoid sandals and heels, and only wear closed-toe shoes. The skydiving center will provide a customized jumpsuit to put on before your jump. In winter, you will be given gloves and other required material to keep warm.

Since any skydiving experience is dependent on weather, your dive can be rescheduled or canceled if there’s rain, poor visibility, fog, heavy wind. In general, 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.

Skydiving in Melbourne Reviews

“It was my first time skydiving, and my instructor went above and beyond to make the experience unforgettable! I felt safe the entire time, and always more hyped than nervous! I even got to do a few spins when the parachute came out, it is honestly In my top 3 life experiences. (I went with a good friend which calmed the nerves a bit, but everyone else in the group was doing it solo!). Just do it, book today - it's worth the money!”
