Should I do the 8,500ft or the 15,000ft jump?
We recommend the 15000ft skydive to make the absolute most out of your experience. With the 15000ft skydive, you get the thrill of freefall at over 200km/hr for up to 60 seconds, with the 8500ft skydive you will free fall for approximately 5 seconds.
With the 15000ft you also get to enjoy a longer scenic flight over the Whitsundays, viewing more of the stunning islands and ocean surrounds. If you are a first time jumper, feeling a little hesitant, or on a tighter budget and would like to opt for the 8500ft option, we completely understand! Keep in mind, whether you are 8500ft or 15000ft above the ground, the feeling of jumping out of a plane is still essentially the same, it's just the freefall time that varies between the two heights.
With both Skydive options, once the parachute is released you will enjoy floating under the canopy for 5-7 minutes soaking up the spectacular views from above. If you are not sure which height is best for you, ask our friendly sales team in the chat window.
Experience the ultimate thrill of freefall at over 220 km/hr for up to an insane 60 seconds, and then float under canopy for 5-7 minutes soaking up breath-taking views. Skydiving Airlie Beach just doesn't get any better.
