Get a stunning aerial view of the Whitsunday Islands and coastline on a tandem skydive tour from Airlie Beach. With a trained instructor, jump from up to 15,000 feet (4,570 meters) and view the sugar-white, sandy beaches and beautiful blue waters from a different perspective. Experiencing the unique sensation of free-falling combined with the incredible scenery of the Whitsundays seen from above will make your trip here even more memorable.
What to Expect

Your exhilarating skydive tandem tour over Queensland’s most popular tourist spot begins with pickup at your Airlie Beach hotel. Head to the Skydive Airlie Beach location to receive a safety briefing with your qualified jump instructor.

After a 20-minute flight over the scenic Whitsunday Islands to achieve up to a 15,000-foot (4,570-meter) altitude, experience a thrilling 60-second free fall of up to 135 miles (220 kilometers) per hour over crystal-blue waters and white-sand beaches. Once the canopy pops open, your descent takes between five and seven minutes, giving you plenty of float time to enjoy the beautiful, lush scenery.

To remember your adventurous experience over the Whitsundays, there are a number of optional photo and video packages to purchase at the end of your skydive.

Well organized tandem

My wife and I booked a 14'000 ft jump and were overall satisfied. The reception staff was professional and even if the skydiver staff was looking tired, they made a professional and safe job. Personally, I read a few comments that the height they jump...More
