Your tandem skydive begins with a pickup from your Surfers Paradise hotel. Alternately, you can choose to arrive at the departure point on your own. Upon arrival, get suited in skydiving gear, learn the basics of canopy control and safe landings, and run through a few practice “dirt dives” with your instructor.
Once you’re ready, take a flight to an altitude of roughly 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) over Kirra Beach. After a final check, hop out of the plane in tandem with your instructor. Zip down 7,500 feet (2,286 meters) in just 45 seconds at speeds up to 125 mph (200 kph).
Your parachute is deployed at around 4,500 feet (1,371 meters). Glide down to earth in several minutes while controlling your direction and descent speed.
After touching down, finish your skydive tour with a drop-off at your original point of departure.
