This would have to be one of the most amazing things that I have ever done and I would without a doubt do it all over again! The staff were professional, friendly and made me feel very comfortable, safe and at ease.
The jump was absolutely exhilarating! Free falling for 60 seconds through the clouds at speeds of over 200km/hr was the biggest rush & like nothing else! My heart was pounding out of my chest and I was screaming my lungs out but loved every second of it! Finally when the parachute opens the mood changes immediately. It is so calm and peaceful floating back down to the ground and overlooking some breathtaking scenery.
The DVD and pictures were well worth the extra money. The filming started just after harnessing up on the tarmac with a little interview on how I was feeling and shows the whole skydiving process... From boarding the little plane with the other skydivers, flying up to 14,000ft, the beautiful views, the jump, free falling, floating, right through to the landing in the sugar cane fields. I was very impressed with how the DVD had been edited to some cool music and glad to have a memento to take home and show my family and friends.
The only advice I could offer is if you are wanting to land on the beach be sure to clarify this when you book as I believe there are several drop zones. Whether you are the thrill seeker type or just looking to get out of your comfort zone I would definitely recommend skydiving as a must do while in Cairns. An absolutely incredible experience!
