Book your TANDEM



Tandem Skydive Information


We skydive 7 days a week, bookings are every hour from 9:00 - 14:00. To make a booking let me know the number of people in your group and the date and time you want to arrive.

Minimum group booking of 2 during the week, single bookings welcome on the weekend.


After you have completed the 15 minute ground training we take a scenic aircraft ride up to jump altitude with views from the coast to the Drakensburg . You are then firmly attached to a qualified and experienced tandem instructor. We exit the aircraft together and free fall for an exhilarating and unforgettable 25-40 seconds.


Then we float to earth under the parachute. During the 5 minute parachute decent you get the opportunity to fly the parachute. The instructor will take over for the landing.

You can choose to add the extreme ride option, this will entail some extra training. The instructor will assist you with twists, turns and spins to demonstrate the complete control you have with doing these manoeuvres during free-falling. You will also be trained on how to steer and do spins while under parachute.


Everything is provided, you just need to bring closed-in running shoes and warm clothing in-case it’s cold. Maximum weight limit is 100kg's, minimum age is 12 years. Anyone younger than 18 needs parental/guardian consent.

Static line training


The Static Line training program is one of two ways to learn how to skydive. It is a safe, simple and effective, and has put thousands of adventure seekers into the skies.....



Training begins in the morning with ground school. The static line course will take approximately five to six hours to complete (Depending on course size) The course consists of lectures and practical instruction. (No written tests) Your first jump will hopefully be on the same day as the training course, weather permitting. 



On your first jump, your main parachute opens automatically (via a static line, hence the name) after you exit solo from the airplane at 3,500 feet. Under a jump masters supervision, you steer your "square" parachute to a soft landing.


Key to safety, during subsequent jumps, you are introduced to true freefall and how to control your body and skydive safely with others. After a minimum of seven static line jumps, which must include four satisfactory practice “Dummy” ripcord pulls, you are cleared for your first 3 second freefall. After your first freefall you will make at least 10 additional supervised freefall from progressively higher altitudes and longer free falls and with more stringent guidelines. You will learn skills such as altitude awareness, manoeuvring in freefall and jumping safely with others. 


At the end of the program you are certified as a "Novice parachutist". Jumps after the ground school session cost R300 including, gear hire and packing. You have to jump every 28 days to stay in the programme and stay “current” (Parachute Association of SA regulations) A refresher course has to completed if you waited more than 28 days. After a 3 months the course has to be started again.
