How much does it cost to skydive?

RedBalloon makes this unforgettable experience infinitely within reach with a range of affordable skydiving deals at the most spectacular natural locations throughout Australia. Skydiving packages range in price from less than $70 for a midweek introductory indoor skydiving session to upwards of $1100 for the exclusive Proposal Package Skydive over St Kilda Beach. It’s a small price to pay for a true love experience to last a lifetime.
Is there a weight limit when skydiving?
Your weight comes into play for maximising the personalised thrill level of the ultimate skydiving experience. Most adventurers fall into the appropriate category, but there are weight restrictions pertaining to the skydiving experience: skydivers must weigh no more than 110 kilograms.
However, there are ways around the body-weight obstacle. Surcharges are involved for those who weigh above 95 kilograms and also above 105 kilograms. This is to ensure that the aircraft and skydiving equipment is fully and expertly prepared to take any extra strain and ultimately provide the smoothest and most exhilarating experience for the skydiver.
High-fliers with a penchant to take the plunge from up to 15,000 feet in the air also require a certain maturity level. Skydivers must be aged 12 and older to take part in a skydiving experience with RedBalloon, to ensure they reap the ultimate benefits from the unforgettable experience. If the skydiver is under the age of 18 years, a legal guardian must also be in attendance to sign any necessary paperwork on the day of the dive.
Which is the best place to skydive in St Kilda?
If you’re based in Melbourne, preferably close to the CBD, the optimum departure point for your unforgettable skydiving experience is the St Kilda Marina. This spectacular location and site, set overlooking the beach, is about a 15-minute drive south of the city centre. RedBalloon have customised a Skydive over St Kilda, 15,000-feet weekend package that is sure to live up to expectations. Quite literally.
