What Is Tandem Skydiving?

Tandem skydiving is the most popular way to experience skydiving for the first time.

As a tandem skydiver, you’ll be attached to one of our highly experienced instructors throughout the whole jump, and they will be responsible for the operation of all of the equipment.

Although your instructor will operate the equipment, you will still have an element of responsibility in the jump. Prior to your jump, you’ll receive training where you’ll learn the proper body position for exiting the aircraft and freefall. You’ll also learn about the importance of lifting your legs for landing. 

Tandem skydives are perfect for first time skydivers. However, it’s not unusual for people to do multiple tandem skydives. Tandem skydiving is also great for anyone who wants to experience skydiving without learning to skydive solo. 

What’s Included with Your Tandem Skydive

  • 20-minute instructional class learning basic freefall and canopy skills
  • One skydive harnessed with a professional tandem Instructor

As a member of the Canadian National 8-way skydiving team, we have trained at many DZs over the years. By far, we have never been treated as well at any other drop zone in the world. This is our new go to DZ. Cannot say enough good things about this operation!!!
