About Tandem Skydiving

Skydiving is an adrenaline-filled adventure at the top of many bucket lists. For your first-time skydiving, it’s all about the experience. The best way to get the most out of this experience is through a tandem skydive.

Tandem skydiving is one of the most popular ways to experience skydiving for the first time. The main reason? You won’t be doing it alone. You’ll be paired with an experienced and licensed tandem skydiving instructor. That means that you won’t actually be the one doing the work. It’s the job of the tandem instructor to keep you stable in the air, pull the parachute at the right altitude, and steer you back for a soft and safe landing.
