I did my first Skydive at Airlie Beach and I could have not have asked for a better place (or better scenary) to do it at!
The instructors are very friendly and helpful and if you are scared they try to put you at ease with their sense of humour.
The company offer a lift to the base which is extremely handy, as it can be quite a walk if you don't have access to a vehicle (or a couple of dollars in a taxi).
Upon arrival, after signing all the necessary health and safety forms, a safety and harness demonstration is carried out where the instructors go through the whole procedure so you know their role and your role! I felt completely safe and excited.
The weather was perfect for the skydive and chosing the highest option of 14000ft the adrenaline rush was intense! Overlooking the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland from 14000ft is something words can't really explain as it truly is breathtaking.
The gopro video at the end of the whole experience was hilarious!
The free fall was amazing and the feeling is addictive - so much that I am totally hooked!
Thanks for a very memorable 'once in a lifetime' experience guys and I hope to see you again some day (hopefully solo next time)!
