THE EXPERIENCE

 

The arrival

When you get here (15 minutes before your scheduled time) come right into our reception area. We’ll meet and greet you, get you to complete some necessary online stuff and take care of payment.

If you’re keen to get any media (photos, video or both), this is the time to let us know so we can tell your tandem instructor to get their gear setup for your handsome/beautiful/screaming/smiling face.

 

The introduction

We have an amazing crew of tandem instructors (if we do say so ourselves).

We’ll introduce you to one of these instructors, who will be stuck to you like white on rice throughout your skydiving journey.

You’ll get harnessed up and be briefed on the skydive, so you know exactly what to do and expect every step of the way. And we’re ready to go.

 

The flight

You wave goodbye to friends and family and emplane, which is a fancy word for getting in one of our fully operational and exceptionally maintained planes. A lot of time and effort has gone into the colours and paint job of each, so we hope you like them.

After getting your peanuts and sip of water from your friendly flight attendant, you’ll have about 15-20 minutes to take in the ocean and surrounding areas, and say ‘I think I can see…my house!…Batemans Bay!…Canberra!’

 

The moment

It’s hard to explain how you feel when the plane door opens and that rush of cold air hits your face…You might have had a cruisey ride up, but this is game time.

Just wait for the drop, the slide off the edge, the moment you leave the comfort of the plane – and there’s no going back. You can’t change your mind now. But, believe us, you won’t want to.

 

The freefall

Are you hurtling down to earth – or is the earth hurtling up to you…? Free fall can seem like the longest and shortest seconds of your life.

Will you stare in wonder or close your eyes (until your instructor realises what you’re doing and taps you on the head)? Will you scream? Or forget to breathe? (and yes, you absolutely can – and should do both)

And rookie move: don’t forget to look at the GoPro! You’ll want your face and thumbs up in at least a few of the frames.

 

The canopy and landing

The canopy opens, the wind dies down, you catch your breath and can finally hear what your instructor’s saying. They’re telling you: ‘Well done. Now take the reins!’

Yep, you get to fly the canopy! But a tandem skydive doesn’t exactly prepare you for the landing, so our instructor will take control when it’s time to get in position, while you continue to take in a birds-eye view of the coastline, beach and hinterland.

Most days we land on beautiful Moruya beach, but if mother nature isn’t in the mood to play, we can also land by the hangar (where you took off from).

 

The adrenaline dump

Everyone has a slightly different reaction when they are back on terra firma. Some pump the air and yell ‘**** yeah!!’ Others are quiet as a mouse as they comprehend what they’ve just experienced. Some carry on with their day as if nothing out of the ordinary happened. Others head straight to the pub to take the edge off their adrenaline rush.

Sometimes we say ‘You may not remember exactly what happened.’ Because of the sensory overload that takes place.

So, this is the time to collect your photos and/or video that will jar your memory when you want to relive this experience. And you know what they say…’Pics or it didn’t happen.’

AGE LIMITS:

Anyone from 12 on up can tandem skydive! We’ll need parents or legal guardian permission for those under 18 and over 80.  

WEIGHT LIMITS:

For your safety and comfort, we have a maximum weight limit of 110kg for men and 90kg for women.

However – please let us know when booking your skydive if you weigh over 100KG (male) OR Over 80KG (female) and 5ft and under. We will assess you on the day of the jump to make sure you are suitable to skydive.

ARRIVAL:

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled booking time. There are things to fill out, money to exchange hands, toilets to be used, etc.

DEPARTURE TIME:

We usually get you in the plane about 15 minutes after your scheduled booking time. But every day is different and we just don’t know what it’s going to bring. We try our best (for everyone’s sake) to be on schedule. Your skydive, all up, will usually take about 1 1/2 hours – but we recommend you allow for 1/2 day. We have a cafe onsite if you wanted a coffee or bite to eat.

DRESS CODE:

Casual clothing with lace-up shoes will do, but make sure it’s something comfortable. Unfortunately tutus and bridal gowns with veils won’t work – but Batman costumes and business suits do work! We can provide you with jump-pants / jumper in the cooler months.

GIFT CARDS

No, these are not gift vouchers. Rather, they are monetary gift cards.

Just like you see in Bunnings, Apple, Harvey Norman, etc you can buy $100, $200 or $300 gift cards that make great gifts!

These gift cards can be used on anything and everything at Skydive Oz.

TANDEM FAQ'S

What is the weather doing next week when we jump?

We use the same weather apps and websites as you – and can’t predict what the weather will be like tomorrow, next week or this time next year.

We will always call you on the day of your jump if there are any weather issues, but feel free to call us before you leave and we can give you a more accurate forecast.

Will I be able to take home my photos and/or video package of my skydive on the day I jump?

Yes, almost always. It usually takes about 30 minutes to complete the editing after your skydive – and you’ll be on your way.

Sometimes it can take a little longer or we can’t produce it on the day. In this case, we’ll send it to you ASAP, usually within 2 business days.

Can I take my own GoPro to video myself on my jump?

Sorry, our National Regulations O.R. 9.7.2 state ‘a parachutist must not carry a camera during a descent unless the parachutist holds at least a Certificate Class C’.

Which means – no you can’t. You need to have at least 100 skydives to take a camera with you on your skydive. Of course, you can buy a media package and our expert instructors can video it for you.

I have been given a gift voucher, but don’t want to jump – what can I do?

Our gift vouchers are not refundable, but are transferable. If you don’t want to jump, are physically unable to or for other reasons, you can gift it to someone who does. Although the thought of jumping out of a plane is scary – it is very rare for the customer to not have a great time.

What if I have an expired gift voucher?

Our gift vouchers are valid for 36 months from date of issue. If your gift voucher has expired, call us and you can extend its validity up to 3 months for $50/month.

OR just get a mate to jump with you within that period and we will waive the extension fees.

What is your refund policy?

Skydives are generally non-refundable – but can be transferred.

We require 48 hours notice for rescheduling, otherwise the deposit will be forfeited. There will be no refund due to cancellation from the customer.

If we experience ‘bad weather’ (which means it’s unsafe for skydiving) on the day of your tandem skydive, your skydive will be rescheduled to another date. You have up to 12 months to rebook.

Booking insurance is available for tandem skydive bookings only and is $22 per person (for Moruya only).  

If you have opted to purchase booking insurance you can reschedule your jump to another date without loss of deposit. If you are unable to jump due to personal reasons, sickness, weather conditions and you are unable to rebook you are eligible for a full refund of $100. 

You are allowed unlimited changes within 12 months. After 12 months you will lose your original deposit. 

Gift vouchers and gift cards cannot be refunded but can be transferred.

Can I drink alcohol before my skydive?

You must not consume alcohol within 8 hours before skydiving. We also strongly discourage skydiving while you’re hungover – vomiting in free fall is not nice, for you or your instructor!

Can I eat before the jump?

Yes, in fact having something in your stomach is a good thing. Just don’t overeat and avoid greasy foods.

Can I skydive while pregnant?

We don’t recommend doing this, just to be safe.

Can I scuba dive before my skydive?

Not for 24hours before or after jumping.
