Amazing!! If you ever want to do something that's life changing, this is it. The place to be. Friendly staff and fun to watch others skydive while relaxing under the shade and having a drink. Very professional skydive instructors for tandem skydives. Very thorough instructions.

The crew are the best! The jump is something not to be missed. The setup is well organized, the crew explain everything before the jump, the tandem master talks you through everything you must remember and ‘calms your nerves’.

Hi, The time slots are 10am and 2pm. I suggest book in the morning, Swakopmund mostly has fog early mornings and late afternoon. February and March are months with the best weather so anytime would be a good time to book.
