1-day jumping experience

A tandem skydive is a roller coaster version of skydiving. You queue up, you undergo a short twenty minute training session, you put on your harness and then defer all responsibility to a professional. Once in the plane you’re clipped to your instructor who’ll do everything for you.

You’ll be exiting from 2.5 miles up in the sky and you’ll freefall at approx 120mph for about 45 seconds before the parachute is deployed. After which you’ll have a relatively peaceful four minute glide back to the earth. If you want to catch your breath and take in the view, that’s normal. If you’re open to experiencing the performance of the canopy, your instructor will be able to do some spiral turns for you.

One of the most amazing experiences of my life. I’ll definitely recommend it to anyone. I think I’m going to do it again soon.

Make the most out of your tandem skydive

Altitude matters

Jumping out of an airplane is an incredible experience no matter what, but it’s important to know that not all jumps are the same. One of the most important factors when choosing your tandem skydive is to check the altitude that you will jump from.

Depending on the Dropzone, there will be altitude limitations and since you will be jumping only once that day, it would be great to make the most out of your money. To make it easy to understand, every 1000 feet of freefall is around 5 seconds, so if you jump from 15,000 feet you will get an extra 15 seconds of freefall to enjoy the view from the sky comparing with person jumping from 12,000 feet!

Proximity is important but…

You might want to consider having a nice view while you fly and meet other skydivers that will be at the Dropzone. Every dropzone has great people but some of them are more alive than others. Check out some options depending on where you live.

How much does a tandem skydive cost?

Skydiving might seem like an expensive activity but if you take into account that you need a plane, an expert pilot, an expert instructor to save your life when you jump out of that plane and life-saving equipment that is checked regularly to save your life when falling at 120mph, everything seems much more affordable

Tandem Skydiving Prices range from £210 to £260 depending on the date (low or high season) and where do you want to jump. Also, most people want to immortalize the whole experience with a nice video and great pictures which usually is charged separately adding £80 to £100 on top of the actual price of the jump. But believe me, it’s well worth it.
