Imagine an experience that puts your senses into overdrive. One that has your heart racing, the adrenaline pumping. And that leaves you so ecstatic you want to scream out loud. A tandem skydive is the ultimate adrenaline rush. When you jump out of a plane at 10-15,000 feet, you’re putting your trust in a total stranger. Literally throwing yourself into the unknown. Freefalling at 120mph is an experience like nothing on earth. Beyond exhilarating, it defies description. The only way to understand it is to do it. So, ready for the thrill of your life?

I'm a firm believer of being fair and wrote a review of the first time my son went here to do a tandem jump in March 2017. Well it was cold, windy and I was very cross at the time, because I felt their was a huge lack of communication...HOWEVER...a few weeks later we returned for another attempt and we found the experience as "supporters" very much different. Better weather, better communication, a delighted and very happy son, who I have no doubt would jump (no pun intended) at the chance to do it all over again. So whilst I feel justified in my first review...they had improved second time around and it was ...in the end, well worth it. Thank you guys!

Hi jenni_nelson736,

Congratulations to your son for jumping out of a plane with us! It's great to hear that he enjoyed it. Sorry to hear that your first experience with us was not up to the same standard as your most recent visit, but it's amazing to hear that you and your son loved the experience when he finally got to jump!

Many thanks,

Connor and the GoSkydive Team

I did my first skydive yesterday and I am still buzzing with excitement!! Go skydive are fantastic, everything is so well organised. They also keep you very well informed if the jump is likely to be cancelled because of the weather. I was so pleased to have Henk as my instructor, he is so funny and put me at ease, wish I could request him for my next jump!!

I'd wanted to do a tandem skydive for years and am so glad I picked GoSkydive! From start to finish I can't fault them. Unlike some other companies they focus solely on tandem jumps so their whole approach is geared towards it. All the staff were really friendly and very professional. They take you through a video guide and then when being kitted out you are taken through what happens including a very comprehensive talk on leaving the plane and landing. They were reassuring and supportive to customers. You get to meet both your instructor and camera man beforehand and they were both great. I would definitely recommend paying extra, if you can, to have a video of your freefall - it's something great to keep and makes me feel good each time I watch it! :). I would also recommend doing the 15,000 ft - you might as well go for the highest you can jump in the UK! It was simply the best thing I have ever done - will be back!

What can I say...Go Skydive were amazing. My instructor Craig and cameramen Roman were brilliant. I was so nervous prior to the jump but they both kept me calm. Safety was a priority to them and all ground crew were friendly and professional. Would definitely jump again but only with Go Skydive! Hubby gave me this jump as a 60th birthday present, one I shall remember for ever!
