What does it feel like to skydive in Adelaide?
To skydive in Adelaide is quite literally to be on top of the world. Any pre-jump nerves will be quickly allayed as you are fully briefed by your professional skydiving instructors, before being suited up with all requisite safety gear and taking to the skies for your breathtaking scenic flight. Once you have reached your desired altitude, between 9000 feet and 15,000 feet, you and your tandem instructor will plunge as one from your aircraft, travelling at mind-blowing speeds of more than 200km per hour.
Wait for it: the insane up to 65-second free fall is a life-changing experience in heart-pounding exhilaration. You will then float with your head in the clouds for five to seven minutes before touching base on your soft beach or stunning rural drop zone, at landing speeds of up to 28km per hour. But the post-experience adrenaline rush will do anything but ground you. You’ll experience a natural high like never before and tick this unforgettable feat of achievement off your bucket list.

What do I need to know before skydiving in Adelaide?
Tandem skydivers must be at least 12 years old and possess moderate fitness levels. If the skydiver is aged between 12 and 18 years old, they will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian on the day to sign official paperwork. There are weight restrictions and surcharges may apply for skydiving, so please advise at the time of booking if you weigh between 90 and 120 kilograms. People who are pregnant or at risk of heart conditions are not able to participate in tandem skydiving activities, purely for the wild rush of this event’s heart-racing inevitability.
The safety briefing, suiting-up time, plane ride and big event of tandem skydiving are designed to take between 45 minutes and 75 minutes, depending on your altitude. But you should allow up to four hours or more for the complete experience. Many packages also include complimentary barbecues and other inviting extras amid beautiful natural drop zones. So prepare to sit back and relax afterwards as you relive the experience while soaking up the stunning surrounds and company.
What should I bring with me to go skydiving in Adelaide?
You should definitely attend your tandem skydiving activity with a keen adventurous spirit and sense of courage. It is also recommended that you wear loose, comfortable clothing, enclosed shoes that are free from hooks, buckles or heavy soles. Your soul is set to soar like never before, so the fear factor will be close to zero once the expert skydiving instructors guide you every step of the way in learn-to-skydive experiences and activities for more experienced tandem skydivers. You should wear sunglasses to deter glare on your 20-minute scenic flight and wear sunscreen to avert UV rays once you take the plunge and float like a bird. Don’t forget to also bring a record of your booking confirmation and personal ID.
Who would enjoy a skydiving experience?
