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.

Before hopping onboard your plane, your instructor will ensure that you are well-prepared for the experience. You will run through a briefing and learn what positions to take during the jump - this will ensure your safety and aero-dynamics at all times. Next, you'll get suited up and get settled in as you head up for your jump! During your flight up, you'll get an unbeatable view of some of the 74 Whitsunday Islands before the doors open and the adventure begins. To find out what happens next... book the jump!
Photos and DVDs - remember your jump forever!
DVDs and Photos are an absolute must to complement your ultimate Skydiving experience! We provide the opportunity to capture your whole Skydive on DVD so you can relive the experience and show your mates afterwards. Watching it is just like doing it again! Digital Photographs are also available for purchase - they are jpeg files so you can email and upload them easily without being a technical genius. These are additional costs and can be purchased separately or together as a package on the day of your jump.
