Airlie Beach Tandem Skydive Up To 15,000ft
From $329pp

In case you’re wondering, Airlie Beach isn’t just about snorkeling tours and boat trips. Some say the best way to see it is when you’re hurtling through the sky at 220kms per hour.

As arguably one of the most popular drop zones in Australia, Airlie is a well sought after ‘tick in the box’ location to pick to do your Skydive. The Whitsundays’ 74 tropical Islands and the Conway National Park are on the menu as far as views are concerned, and like a wine, you can pair this jump with adrenaline, fear, or excitement.

Jumping out of a plane is pretty special no matter where you do it. Being able to see the reefs, rainforest, and tropical islands all in one is a dream come true. Skydive in Airlie with a 15,000ft jump along with some incredible views.

Timing: All bookings are given a check-in time only.  Please note this is not a jump time.  A late arrival may result in delays to your jump time.  We always strive to complete your skydive within 3 hours of your arrival but due to factors beyond our control this is not always possible.  Safety is our priority and factors such as wind, rain, cloud and turbulence and other factors such as air traffic can affect the time it takes for us to complete your skydive.  We advise you to arrive with no time constraints and plan for this to be at least a half day’s activity.

Age: The minimum age for skydiving in Australia is 16 years.  Skydivers under 18 years require consent from a parent or legal guardian.

Payments: Full payment is required at the time of booking.  Alternatively, a $100 deposit per person may be paid when booking with our staff over the phone, the remaining balance will be payable on check-in at drop zone.  Any payments made at the drop zone will attract credit card surcharges whereas those made online or over the phone do not.  Deposits are per person and transferrable but cannot be used to pay the balance of another person’s skydive.

No-shows: If you do not check in on the day of your booking and do not contact us in advance all payments will be forfeited.  If extenuating factors exist, we may allow you to choose a new date. In this case a $50 per person no-show fee will apply.

Cancellations: Cancellations made within 24 hours of the jump date will result in forfeit of your skydive payment.  Cancellations made within 48 hours of the jump date will incur a $100 per person cancellation fee.

Group Bookings: If you have made a skydive booking on behalf of others, it is your responsibility to ensure all members of the group are informed of our Terms & Conditions. You are responsible for providing us with the names and contact details of all individuals in your group. Last minute additions to the group are required to pay in full prior to arrival at the drop zone. Additions made on the day may incur a delay to your jump time. We always try to assign groups to the same aircraft, but this is not always possible due to operational requirements.

It affects aircraft weight and balance, fuel allowances, climb rates and equipment maintenance.   Every customer will be weighed at check- in.  We must be informed at the time of booking if a customer weighs 95kg or more.  Please note the maximum weight for tandem skydiving is 115kg.  We reserve the right to refuse service based on weight if we consider it a safety issue.  The following weight surcharges apply:

Changes to a Confirmed Skydive: To ensure the highest standards are maintained, we reserve the right to reschedule or alter a skydive without notice.  Whilst rare, these changes may include aircraft type, jump time, group size, altitude reached and jump location.  These changes do not constitute a claim for refund.  We always endeavour to deliver the highest altitude we can.

Purchasing Photos and Videos:  Whilst it is not mandatory to book a video or photographs, it is advisable, as on some occasions a late change of mind may result in disappointment.  If there is a technical issue and all footage is unavailable, you will be offered a second skydive on the same day with videographer at no extra charge, or a full refund of your video/photo product.  Please be advised that should there be any technical issues relating to camera/dubbing equipment, no refunds can be made for the individual skydive as the filming and skydive are two separate products.  If only a portion of your video or photo product fails, you will be issued with a refund for the balance of the amount paid less the value of the product received.
