We had an amazing time on our recent sky dive with this great company. The staff were great and they knew what they were doing - all in all an excellent experience- if you can, use your own transportation to have more flexibility in getting there and when you want to leave

for the most part they had nice staff but was met with one who accused me of not wanting to pay for extra weight when the scale was incorrectly calibrated. if you weigh more it is fine to pay but to have 3/4 kg wrong om their scale and accuse a paying customer of not paying is poor customer service and rude. couldn't jump anyway because of the weather, waited 6 hours to do nothing. I was also told that refunds can take a long time... not fun

I tried skydiving on a solo trip to Cairns. I saw somewhere that if you were in doubt, you should try it once, and I asked you to do it, but as the plane ascended, the scenery became smaller and you were above the clouds...There was no way you could turn back, and you fell down. ..When I opened my eyes, I was flying on my stomach over the sea, and the beauty was definitely better than the fear! After a quick skydive, the parachute opened and they landed gracefully on the beach. The sea and scenery were truly beautiful...it was a great memory.

I greatly enjoyed my experience with Cairns Skydivers. My instructor, Floyd Daniel, was professional and straightforward. The flight to the diving site was beautiful. The dive itself went smoothly and was everything I hoped for in my first time sky diving.My only critique would be the wait. At the time of my dive, they had two planes, each plane could carry two tandem jumps. There were to be eight tandem jumps the day I was there. So, the first four went and then those of us in the second four waited for the instructors to return. It was over an hour of waiting. I'm okay with waiting, but I prefer to have something to do. They had taken our items to the landing site sometime after the first four left, so we did not have anything to pass the time for much of that wait. I appreciated having my items once the dive was completed, but would have appreciated having my phone or something to entertain me while waiting for the dive.

The experience was awesome. Step by step guide of what to expect and what's going to happen. Exiting the plane was smooth and the landing was like falling on mattress. The view in between was nothing short of spectacular. I'm afraid of heights, but the professionalism of my instructor allays all my fears. Which led to an unforgettable experience. I also tip my hat to the pilot for a smooth uneventful flight.

Amazing experience!It was my very first time to try the sky diving which I planned for 3 years before the Covid.I chose the “landing beach” which was totally worth it. Fantastic view of the sea, my best memory this year!Especially great thanks to my instructor Mark Alan, 13 years experienced skill and very clear instructions. Also great service for the whole team! I felt so lucky to choose this company rather than others. (The other one canceled today due to the windy weather and it nexts to the mountain)Actually today is a bit windy, this company locates a bit far away from Cairns city but with much better with grassland view. The other one located in the Cairns city can be more possible to be canceled if windy weather happens (next to the mountains)If you want to do the skydiving with less possibility to be canceled, better choose this company over others. And, choose the “beach landing” please if you want to enjoy the amazing view of sea.

2023.9.11🛩🪂I experienced it during my trip to Cairns ✨We had the best adventure❗👍・If you are staying in Cairns city, there will be a shuttle to and from you🚌・I don't know much about English, but I felt at ease because there was a Japanese staff member😆・Price is based on beach landingAUD 359 (about 33,000 yen)Purchase GoPro photos and videosAUD159 (about 15,000 yen)*Due to the wind, we had to land on the grass that day, so we received a refund of AUD 30.・There are ``lawn'' and ``beach'' landing locations, but this may change depending on the weather on the day.A trip to Cairns for 6 days and 5 nights.Due to bad weather on the originally scheduled day, we had to move the date.At this time, it was a little difficult because we communicated via email 😂 (because I don't speak English lol)Although it was windy that day, we were able to fly❗We will pick you up at 8:00 and arrive at the skydiving site in about an hour.You can decide whether to purchase photos or photos + videos at the reception stage 📸Also, the landing location may change depending on the weather 💡If the conditions are good, it will fly right away (lol)Since nature is my opponent, I guess it's all about the luck of the day🤔The Australian continent and ocean seen from 14,000ft (about 4,000m?)✨Free fall of about 60 seconds ✨Once you fly, the fun will overwhelmingly outweigh the fear 👍I was also able to operate the parachute descent😊All I can say about this is the excitement and amazing scenery that I can't tell you about✨The real Great Barrier Reef is in the sky lol That's what it feels like❗Check it out with your own eyes and skin 😆Once everyone has finished flying, they will take you back to the hotel and you're done ✨Videos will be sent via email 📩This day went smoothlyWe arrived at the hotel at 12:00 🚩I don't think there was any food or drink available on the way or at the site, so if you need it, it might be a good idea to bring it with you🤔❓Although I participated alone ❗ it was a lot of fun 😆And the staff's response was also great ✨If I come to Cairns, I will try it again 😂Thank you very much for the great adventure 😊

From the initial impression to the end of the experience was nothing but welcoming and comforting. Instructor Brant was very nice and gave directions easy to understand. Thank you to the whole team at that location, from checking in at reception to getting unbuckled after the best experience of my life. Definitely will be back

I have done a handful of tandem jumps, this hands down was my best experience yet! They have a incredibly knowledgeable team they are absolutely wonderful! If you haven't been yet you should absolutely go! It was my sister's first time and she even said it was the most incredible experience she has ever had.

We had a great day with Rauno, Lee and the rest of the crew!!! They were amazing and made the skydive very enjoyable with both jokes and experience. The facilities at the place are also very good, they got a pool, tennis table, shower, etc. That is good for the only bad thing I can say, which is the waiting time. We were asked to be there at 8:30 and we end up jumping around 11:30. Good thing is the facilities are good as I said. But in overall they really deserve 5 stars because they are great. If you are doubting, doubt no more, go with these guys, they are top professionals.

Very nice experience. I could not do the tandem skydiving due to some health issues but some family members did it and they were thrilled by the experience. It is rather expenriece but worth the costs. A must experience and must do. You have to get up very early as it takes some hours to reach the place to start the tandem skydiving. Great views. Some large domestic animals were lying dead bit by the poisonous snakes in Australia.

Wonderful and unforgettable experienced. Start from pick up by the driver (also instructor) dwane johnson if i didn't wrongly remember his given name. He was so polite and nice guy, i felt welcome even before we start the jump. Once arrived they weight each of us and IF YOUR WEIGHT IS MORE THEN 95KG THEY WILL CHARGE YOU 50DOLLAR EXTRA ( in my case it was only 700gr extra) they are very strict with it and i paid mine. And yes they must weight you with all cloth and shoes on! I was tandem with Terry. He is a very funny guy and he is nice too, i have a good time with him and he took a good video too. YOU MUST HAVE VIDEO AND PICTURE PACKAGE TOO and i think is worth the penny. The jump was not scary at all and for those of you who afraid, trust me, in my opinion, high speed roller coaster is more scarier that sky diving.
