We were 4 friends booking a 15000 ft tandem skydive. It was a great experience, with calm instructors. Not much practicing, but simple instructions and it felt safe all the way. 75 seconds in free fall was awesome, and some of the instructors also gave...More

What an incredible experience for my first time skydiving. The entire day from start to finish was awesome. Chris was great to skydive with and I would absolutely do it again.

Last minute decision to jump 15000ft instead of the 10000 ft we'd booked. No regrets! The instructors were fantastic, the views magnificent. Order the video at least - you won't regret it!

The instructors were friendly, funny and reassuring (mine was Mark) and this makes a big difference because it's all about the experience. It was my first sky dive, and well worth it. We landed in the airfield park, but you get great views of the...More

Hi there, It is a regulation of the Australian Parachute Federation that you must have a C licence with a minimum of 100 jumps before you can take a camera. Therefore, unfortunately you cannot use your own Gopro.
