This must be one of the best experiences ever, extreme doesn't get any better. Jumping out of a plane at 14000 feet and free falling for 60 seconds. The whole team at Sky Dive Cairns are amazing I jumped along side my 15 year old son don't go any where else in Cairns.

If you like excitement, you would be highly recommended to do this. Dropping off from 15000ft of the plane, the free-fall with screaming would be unforgettable. The coaches are good and energetic, with professional videos and photos.

Easily the best experience of my life. Do it. Always going to be a bit nervous jumping out of a perfectly good plane, but all the instructors were so great at making you feel at ease. Charlie had his life in my hands and was so much fun to jump with. I can't wait to do it again

Always wanted to skydive and now I can check that off my bucket list. I was a bit nervous but my tandem instructor Richard was the best and made me feel comfortable. Highly recommended. The scariest part was the plane ride but the actual free fall was the best part! All the equipment is super new as well for peace... More

Had an amazing first time sky dive! At 51 I was easily the oldest in the group and proud of it! I thought this would be a bucket list item, but I'll do it again. FYI go for the 15,000 ft jump option. It's one the most peaceful things on earth once the chute open. ;) the view is spectacular... More

As much as I enjoyed the actual skydive this business needs to take a long hard look at themselves if they wish to remain in business. I actually had the head instructor and found him to be super ignorant and would not engage in conversation unless it was during the filming of their overpriced and poor quality video. As much...
