On Australia’s Gold Coast most people take to the beach, but for you, why not take to the air with a tandem skydive before landing on a nearby beach just in time for cocktails. As a prelude to this thrilling adrenalin rush, you’ll be geared up in the skydiving outfit and thought everything you need to know to get the absolute ultimate from this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Then, it’s time to hop aboard the aircraft for a 20-minute flight to your destination and an altitude of 12,000-feet.
This is where the fun begins, harnessed to your tandem parachute master, you’ll make a final equipment check and it’s time to head for the beach, the long-way down. For the first 45-seconds of your tandem jump, you’ll experience an ultimate velocity - speed to you and me - of 120-mph, before your parachute is deployed at approximately 4,500-feet and it’s time to sit back and enjoy the view and the whole experience. What people say about tandem skydiving is that you get the full thrill of the activity without all the training needed for solo jumping. Your controlled parachute ride will last about 5 minutes, giving you plenty of time to take in the stunning views from a completely new perspective. Once you land on the beach below you’re sure to be filled with a buzz you’ll want to talk about for weeks, if not months to come.
