A tandem skydive is a truly unforgettable experience, and surely tops any thrill-seekers bucket list. Jump in the company of highly-qualified tandem masters, and enjoy a sensation like nothing else on earth!
Upon arrival at the airfield, you'll be greeted by your instructor, provided with some paperwork to complete, and given a briefing on what to expect in the air. Fitted with a harness and goggles, you'll then take the 20-minute flight to altitude, and enjoy spectacular views over Grahamstown. Feeling nervous yet? You're sure to feel reassured by the clear expertise of the crew - each boasting thousands of dives' experience. At a height of around 11,000ft, you and your instructor will exit the plane and begin 45 seconds' freefall.
