For the adrenaline junkie there is no greater challenge than a sky dive. Experience the wind in your face as you free fall down to earth at 200 metres a second. A tandem dive is the perfect introduction to the daddy of extreme sports, as all you need to do is jump. Your qualified instructor will take care of the rest. You’ll be fully kitted out in a jumpsuit, tandem harness, headgear and goggles. After you board the jump plane, it will take 20 nerve shredding minutes to reach the required altitude, and then you and your instructor will leap out into the blue! You'll feel exhilaration like never before, surging through the air for 7,000 feet, before the instructor deploys the parachute. You’ll then have a few minutes to catch your breath and enjoy the view as you slowly float back down to earth.

Best Experience In The World!! My skydive was incredible, no words can describe how amazing it was. The instructor I jumped with was lovely and made me feel very safe and made me really enjoy the experience. As soon as I landed all I could think was when can I do it again! I would recommend this to anyone, you will never know what it feels like until you have done it. 09 June 2014

Amazing Experience Highly recommend throwing yourself out of an aeroplane at 13000 feet. Excellent instructors make the whole thing a breeze. "When we get to the edge tilt your head back. You are going out the door anyway, so you might as well smile for the camera". 07 June 2014
