Most frequent questions and answers
The minimum age is 12 years and there is no maximum age. People over the age of 90 have been Tandem Skydiving! Anyone under 18 years old must have their legal guardian sign the indemnity form before jumping.
95kg is the standard weight limit. We can still take you skydiving if you’re over 95kg but under 115kg. For participants over 95kg there is a $50 surcharge and the jump is more subjective to weather conditions. We would recommend booking as early as possible to give you the best chance.
Bookings can be made from 6 months in advance up until 5.30pm the previous day. Last minute bookings can be made on the day subject to availability. We would definitely recommend booking at least a week or 2 in advance if you want to jump on a certain day especially in our peak season (summer)
Skydiving is a weather dependant activity and may be cancelled if the weather is unsuitable (windy or raining). We have a designated safety officer who will be monitoring the weather on the day and we will only jump if it is completely safe to do so. If we are unable to jump on the day you have booked we will contact you and re schedule your booking for a day that suits you best. If you are unable to re schedule we are happy to give you a full refund. (gift vouchers aren’t refundable)
We recommend wearing casual comfortable clothing. As the weather is quite warm in Australia we do not provide jump suits so just dress to suit the temperature on the day. You will also have to make sure you a wearing fully enclosed lace up foot wear e.g running shoes.
Yes. You are welcome to bring spectators with you. We recommend for them to meet at our office (18 Coyne st) at the time of your booking. They can watch you gear up and complete your safety inductions. Our staff will then direct them to the landing area just a 3 minute walk ready to watch the landing.
You will land on the soft sand of Kirra beach just 3 mintues walk from our office. The landing area is in line with the Kirra Wyndham resort.
Skydiving is a highly regulated sport. Over 70,000 tandem skydive jumps are conducted each year in Australia. We take safety very seriously and follow the very strict guid lines for skydiving implemented by the Australian Parachute Federation APF and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority CASA. Our instructors are highly qualified and can complete over 10 Tandem skydives in just one day! some having completed as many as 15,000 skydives through their career so you know you are in safe hands.
Allow up to 2 hours from start to finish for your skydiving experience. If you are using our shuttle service allow at-least half a day for your experience including transfers.
Yes nerves are completely normal and all apart of the experience. After all it’s not every day you jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane (unless your one of us) but conquering your nerves and pushing past your fear barrier is what makes the experience so incredible and sometimes life changing.
Like all Drop Zone across Australia our jump height is completely governed by the ATC.
If your shopping around for the highest jump in Australia beware of the fine print saying “up to” a certain height. At Gold Coast skydive we guarantee a minimum height of 10,000 ft and will take you as high as ATC clearance will allow.
