Great experience and my Tandem partner was fantastic, super chilled and made me feel comfortable!
However when we arrived, there was nobody there and we weren’t sure if we were in the right spot! The people were 20 minutes late with no message or anything, and then we were super rushed! No real intro, just strapped straight up and taken straight to the plane!
The man who was doing the money was also not very welcoming. Very rushed and all about the money, no introductions or talking about what to expect etc.
Overall the jump was amazing and my partner was the best!! , but the introduction and the prep was very poor, especially being my first jump.

Skydiving had always been on my bucket list as a ‘must do’ but, having an intense fear of heights (along with may other excuses), I had always chickened out on making any solid plans.

I had booked my skydive with Top End Tandems on a whim, having run out of time and ideas to use a Tourism Voucher and figured it would be no massive loss if I got up there and decided not to jump.

In the two weeks that followed, I went through ALL the emotions – from ‘I can’t do this’ to ‘I am going to die falling out of a plane’. Thankfully, by the time the day rolled around, I was excited. It was happening!

We met Ash and the team at Darwin Airport, where they got me all rigged up and briefed on what will happen, falling positions, etc, then away we went in the plane. Ash chatted to me on and off throughout the plane ride to help me calm my nerves (which strangely went away once we were up in the air) and remind me of what I needed to do once we jumped, all while I enjoyed the spectacular views of Darwin’s coastline.

Once we reached altitude, it was time to go! The door opened, we stepped out onto the landing gear and surged forward into the horizon.

What followed was about 3-5 seconds of absolute terror in jumping and stabilising into the freefall position, but then WOW! The views were absolutely breathtaking, I felt like I was flying, and I could not help but scream my absolute head off!

After what felt like only seconds, it was time to pull the parachute and relax as we glided back to earth – I even got to steer the parachute, which was really cool. We had a super smooth landing down on Lee Point Beach. It was just an amazing experience.

I know it sounds really cliché but doing this skydive has changed the way I view things. I feel a little bit like a superhero now and I no longer give a second thought to fears and worries that had previously been a massive part of everyday life. Hell, if I can jump out of a plane and survive, then what’s the worst that can happen, right??

Long story short – if you are thinking of going skydiving but are still unsure – JUST DO IT!!

I can’t wait to go again, but next time from 12,000 feet. Thanks Ash!

What a great experience! I've been on a skydive before but it didn't even come close to this. The views were amazing, the staff were incredibly friendly and made the whole experience enjoyable. I'd highly recommend this to my friends, and gladly go again with them on their jump! Ash did a great job talking my friend through the nerves of her first jump, and I loved Troy talking me through some maneouvres in the air to let me experience new things on this dive.

Felt like it was over before it began!! The crew meet you at the terminal and only a few minutes later you're in your harness and the plane is taking off. The instructors are super friendly. The view on the way down is absolutely stunning. Bring someone with you if you can (whether they jump or meet you on the sand) so you can share the experience.

On a side note the USB drive with my video on it crashed but Chris got on it straight away and I had a new one within a matter of hours. Very efficient service

My first time tandem skydiving was a fantastic experience.

From the moment I met the crew, there was banter and eased my pre-jump jitters.
Ash was amazing, incredibly skilled and It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. I loved the rush jumping out of the plane and the free fall. I absolutely loved the glide down after parachute opened, it was so peaceful paired with stunning views. I cannot wait to do it again.
I cannot thank Ash enough for the experience and amazing video/pictures.

Thanks to the Crew, you are all amazing. See you again soon.

Top End Tandems are amazing. They made the experience so much fun and were super professional throughout. We felt very much in safe hands as well as being provided uplifting words to create even more magic and help us maximise the enjoyment of our first time jump.
