Do Skydive
Multiple locations

Parachuting, also known as skydiving, is the action of exiting an aircraft and returning to earth with the aid of a parachute. It may or may not involve a certain amount of free-fall, a time during which the parachute has not been deployed and the body gradually accelerates to terminal velocity. read more »

About this Experience

Jumping out of a plan, freefalling for a bit then pulling out a parachute, what a rush!

  • Wow, never felt anything like that before!

    Company used: Skyline Event Management

    Well I have always wanted to do this for many years now and finally got round to it. This was the second attempt. The first in the middle of July was cut short thanks to the typically wet British summer. Having gotten up at 5am to drive up to Sibson from London, I wasn't the most awake, but once I got to the airfield and met my cousins & friends, who I was to jump with, it hit me. No nerves just excitement. The noise of the small aircraft's taking off and landing really gets you in the mood. We went in the 5th batch so we had a chance to see others jump and come back with huge grins on their faces. One it was our turn we suited... read the full review »

  • Skydive over Middle Earth

    Company used: Skydive Paradise

    What an awesome feeling! We went with Skydive Paradise based in Glenorchy just outside Queenstown, NZ, jumping from 15,000 ft over Mt Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks. The scenery was fantastic, much of it featuring in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I thought nerves were going to get the better of me on the way up to altitude but as soon I got to the door to jump that all fell away. Over a minute of breathless freefall was possibly the best experience of my life & I can't wait to do it again. read the full review »

  • Tandem Skydive York, Australia

    Company used: Skydive Express

    Did the sky dive with Skydive Express. Was at the end of a long drive from Darwin to Perth, the perfect way to end the trip. Weather was overcast so jumped through cloud (which felt like hail on your face). Would highly recommend, but suggest having a light breakfast rather than a sickly Danish pastry like I did! read/edit your full review »

    Best adrenalin rush ever!

    Me and my mate Scof went to Spain in 2008 to do a skydive then the Pamplona bull run, the Skydive came first. After doing pretty quick but good and safe training with the instructors (which I appreciated after all the red tape and safety regulations in the UK) we jumped in the Cessna aircraft (had a propellor and everything) the pilot then took off with me Scof and another Spanish guy and we were all tied (tandem) to our skydiving instructors as well as the camera helmet wearing skydivers. The journey up was more excitement building than nervewracking and eventually we got to 15k feet. I was first to go out and one of my favourite bit... read the full review »

    Skydive for charity

    I had the choice of doing this at 15,000 ft on a tandem or on my own at 1,000 ft. I went for the altitude! It was freezing falling through the sky, I didn't get much chance to look down due to the cameraman to wave at taking the video. The opening of the parachute filled my head and I couldn't hear a thing until a few hours after. A top experience though and raised some money for the Laura Crane trust. read the full review »
