Take a leap of faith and jump from a plane 10,000ft above Plettenberg Bay - the perfect place for your first tandem skydive!
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Few sensations in life can compare to that of leaping from a plane at 10,000 feet – soaring through the air with the earth stretched out far below. This Tandem Skydive, in Plettenberg Bay, offers a chance to experience this unique thrill, with all the guidance and support of highly qualified Tandem Masters.
The centre has been operating in South Africa since 2002 and you’ll be skydiving within one of the busiest – not to mention most scenic – drop zones in the country. Upon arrival, you’ll meet your Tandem Instructor and receive a briefing. You’ll be kitted-out with a harness, jumpsuit and goggles, before making the flight to altitude. Your harness will be attached to your instructor, whose professionalism is sure to quell any nerves – allowing you to enjoy panoramic views of the Plettenberg coastline and Robberg peninsula. After around twenty minutes, your heart is sure to be pounding once again when – at a height of around 3 kilometres – you exit the plane. During the next 35 seconds exhilarating free fall, you’ll reach speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour, before your descent is brought to a gentler pace with the automatic release of the parachute. You’ll now have the opportunity to really savour that view as you steer yourself safely back to earth.
The 10,000ft Tandem Skydive, in Plettenberg Bay, is a great introduction to the world of freefall. A voucher would make an unforgettable gift for your favourite adrenalin junkie.
