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.

Frequent questions skydiving in Cairns

Cairns skydiving FAQs

Contact us with any other questions you may have. We are here to help you, before, during, and after your tandem skydive in Cairns.

What's the age limit to skydive in Australia?

The minimum age to skydive in Australia is 16 years old. Anyone under the age of 18 needs their parent or guardian’s written permission. There is not a maximum age limit to skydive but we reserve the right to refuse a skydive based on our assessment of weight and health to ensure the safety of our visitors and our staff. If you are unsure please don’t hesitate to contact us to avoid disappointment on the day.

Is there a weight limit to skydive?

The maximum weight to skydive is 110 kg, due to safety reasons. We weigh each person at check-in when you arrive at Cairns Skydivers. Over 95kg charges apply: $25 over 95kg, $50 over 100kg and $100 for the max. weight allowed of 110kg

Is skydiving safe?

Fun is high on our list, but your safety is our number one priority. There are risks involved in skydiving, however, according to statistics from the USPA, you are more likely to die in a car accident than skydiving. Thanks to the advancements in technology, regulation and training, skydiving has become much safer over the last few decades. Safety devices like AADs (Automatic Activation Device), installed in all our rigs, ensure that even in the extremely unlikely event that the instructor is unable to manually deploy their parachute, the AAD will automatically trigger the deployment of the reserve parachute. That, coupled with stringent safety procedures and processes as well as experienced instructors with thousands of jumps ensure that your skydiving experience is as safe as possible.

Are skydiving photos or video included?

You can purchase photos and video packages as extras, either when booking your skydive or when you arrive at the dropzone or our office in Cairns for your check-in. Visit our skydiving bookings page for an up-to-date list of prices and options.

Is the beach landing included?

You can add our exclusive beach landing on Etty Bay beach as an extra for just $30, it is quite a unique experience! We will pick you up and drive back to our skydiving center about 15 min away.

How long does it take to skydive?

We will often have you checked in and jumped within 2-3 hours, however it is safer to plan for a half a day activity as there may be weather or unforeseen circumstances out of our control. Make sure you add our free shuttle service to your booking if you require transportation from your accommodation.

Your booking time is for your check-in time. When you arrive you will need to fill in some paperwork, and then you are assigned to a load or flight. The safety briefing and gear up with your instructor will take 10 min, followed by a 20 min flight to altitude.

Please ensure you arrive and check-in on time. If you have any time constraints let us know beforehand.

Safety is our top priority, if we have to wait on the ground to ensure your safety due to weather holds, we will, but we generally complete all jumps in a timely manner.

How many people can go in the same plane to skydive?

It will depend on the aircraft we are operating on the day and the size of your group. Exact numbers in the plane are also affected by weights, how many people want outside camera (extra instructor onboard) and other factors. If you want to jump with your friends or relatives on the same flight we will do our best to accommodate your request, please let us know when you check in.

What to wear skydiving?

Our advice on what to wear skydiving in Cairns:

  • Dress for the weather on the day with comfortable casual clothes. If it is cold we can provide you with a skydiving jumpsuit that can be fitted over your clothes.
  • We will provide you with skydiving goggles so you don’t miss the stunning views skydiving over the Great Barrier Reef! If you wear prescription glasses we have special oversized goggles.
  • Secure footwear is important. Enclosed shoes that won’t fall off are required. No flip-flops or open sandals.
  • Remember to empty your pockets!

What are the physical requirements for skydiving ?

Almost any healthy person can do a tandem skydive, even seniors over 80 years old. Due to safety reasons we reserve the right to refuse a skydive after our assessment based on age, weight and general health. If unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact us before booking your skydive in Cairns.

Do you get a roller coaster sensation when you skydive?

You don’t get a stomach drop typical of roller coasters when you skydive. Because of the relative wind when jumping out of the plane you experience air resistance, and after a few seconds transition into terminal velocity. It feels like a natural drop sensation pushed by the relative wind, followed by a floating sensation when you are freefalling at terminal velocity.

Can I cancel my skydiving booking?

Bookings can be cancelled for a full refund if you give us at least 48 hours notice. We can reschedule your skydive at no extra cost if you cannot make it on the day booked, let us know more than 24 hours in advance. Our vouchers and credit are valid for 3 years.

Can I change my skydive date or time?

Yes, let us know more than 24h in advance if you cannot make it on the day or time you booked and we can reschedule your skydive at no extra cost. Changes made within less than 24 hours will attract a $50 change fee.

Can I book a skydive for someone else?

Yes, you can book a skydive for someone else at a specific date and time, or purchase a skydiving gift voucher that can be used by the recipient within 3 years.

Do you have skydiving gift vouchers or gift cards?

Yes, we do, and they make the gift of a lifetime! If you want to surprised a loved one you can choose a date and time for the skydive, or you can purchase a skydiving gift voucher, valid for 3 years.
