We ask that if you have to cancel or postpone your jump, please let us know 24 hours before you are due to jump with us. This enables us to find a more suitable time for you to jump with us, and also opens up the booking should anyone else like to jump at that time.


Should the weather be unsuitable for jumping on the day, we will attempt to find another suitable time to complete your skydive. If you have prepaid for your skydive and you are not able to jump due to weather cancellations made by our team, we will provide you with a full refund.
