About Tandem Skydive:
Tandem Skydiving is the easiest and most hassle free way to make your first parachute jump. You experience the thrill of freefall and enjoy a long ram-air canopy ride.
A Tandem skydive experience is done in a dual harness so you are securely attached to an experienced Tandem Instructor who will give you a taste of what skydiving is all about. Because the Tandem Instructor takes control of vital functions such as opening the Tandem Parachute and Landing, your preparation for the jump just takes 30 minutes.
You will exit the aircraft from around 10,000 feet and like the tandem student below you can just relax on what feels like a cushion of air and enjoy the exhilarating experience. Depending on your brief, you can use the opportunity to do turns in the sky. Your parachute descent starts at 5,000 feet. This is the ultimate skydiving experience.
