Full description
Begin your adventure by meeting your expert skydiving instructor, receive a safety briefing and prepare your skydiving equipment. Tandem skydiving is the fastest, easiest and safest way for an inexperienced skydiver to enjoy the thrill of jumping out of a plane, free falling through the sky before floating safely to the ground under a parachute. Jump from flight level of 13,000 feet, 16,500 feet or 20,000 feet depending on which option you choose, and free-fall for a thrilling 45, 65 or 85 seconds before the instructor pulls the parachute. Enjoy the incredible views as you leisurely float back down to the landing which is approximately 300 feet above sea level.

My wife and I took up our 16 and 15 year old kids, the experience was easily 11 out of 10. This outfit is professional, safe, and fun. They made our experience relaxed and we had an absolute blast in this beautiful part of the world. Great team, super professional and safe, very highly recommended for anyone.

5 star experience and 5 customer service!!!!! I do like heights and my instructor and photographer were so understanding. Kept me calm and gave me an unforgettable experience. The views were superb - glaciers, rainforest and a beach…… the weather was perfect Once the canopy opened and I explained that I do not like this part, my instructor landed asap (as per my request). PERFECT

Es war sehr cool, aber man muss wirklich fix die 3 Stunden einplanen. Schulung ca. 15 min, Aktion 15 min, Rest Wartezeit. Evtl. Snacks einpacken ;) Der Helikopterflug bei dem Panorama war mega, der freie Fall Adrenalin pur und der Rest pures Vergnügen.
