Before hopping on board 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!
- Whitehaven Beach Landing (up to 14,000ft)
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.
When to Jump
We suggest jumping first time in the morning when the weather/visibility is often at its best! Be sure to allow yourself 1.5 - 2 hours from start to finish. Once you arrive at the airport, you'll be asked to complete the necessary paperwork and be issued with a compulsory student permit to jump.
The jump team of Skydive Airlie Beach are all highly experienced crew. Most of the crew are current or ex-World and Australian Champions, some of them having won gold medals. They all have between 5,000 - 12,000 skydives each and have been part of the sport for more than 20 years.
Requirements: Jumpers must weigh less than 95kg.
*Please note: There is an Australian Sky Diving Students Licence (Mandatory) AU $35pp to pay on arrival.
The ultimate package - Whitehaven Beach Landing!
Get the ultimate thrill, freefall up to 200km/h over the magnificent Whitsundays, taking in the crystal clear waters and breathtaking views of the islands, then land on the pristine white sands of Whitehaven Beach.
This package includes:
- Up to 14,000ft Tandem Skydive landing on Whitehaven Beach
- Beach Landing on Whitehaven Beach - voted one of the best beaches in the world
- Handicam videos and photos package
- Return Cruise to Airlie Beach
Available Wednesdays only. Check-in at 2:00pm. Please note: A $35 Australian Parachute Federation (APF) Levy is payable on arrival directly to skydive Airlie Beach. Requires a minimum of 4 passengers to run, maximum of 8 passengers.
Should I do the 7,000ft 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 7000ft skydive you will freefall 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 7000ft option, we completely understand! Keep in mind, whether you are 7000ft or 15000ft above the ground, the feeling of jumping out of a plane is still essentially the same, itâ€™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.
