A Tandem Skydive is an amazing experience which allows you to jump out of a plane securely attached to a very experienced Skydiving Instructor.

After a training session lasting about 30- 40 minutes the jump is made from c.12, 000 feet and includes a freefall of 30-40 seconds before your instructor opens your parachute.  You will be given an opportunity to steer however the instructor remains in control at all times.
