Your tandem skydive begins with a pickup from your Surfer’s Paradise hotel. Alternately, you can choose to arrive at the flying off point on your own. Upon arrival, get suited up in skydiving gear and run through a few practice “dirt dives” with your instructor. You’re taught the basics of canopy control and safe landings.

Once you’re ready, take a 20-minute flight to an altitude of roughly 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) over Kirra Beach. After a final check, hop out of the plane in tandem with your instructor. Fly down 7,500 feet (2,000 meters) in roughly 45 seconds at speeds up to 125 mph (200 kph).

Your parachute is deployed at around 4500 feet (1370 meters). Glide down to earth over five minutes while controlling your direction and descent speed.

After touching down, finish your skydive tour with a drop-off at your original point of departure.
