Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an age limit for skydiving?

The minimum age is 16 years old is the legal minimum age to skydive in Australia. There is not a maximum age limit to skydive but The Operator reserves the right to refuse a skydive, based on weight and health to ensure the safety of visitors and staff. 

Due to safety reasons, the maximum weight to skydive is 115 kg. All customers are weighed at check-in. Charges apply for participants 95kgs and above:

  • 95 – 99kg: $25
  • 100 – 109kg: $50
  • 110 – 115kg: $100

There are risks involved, but thanks to the advancements in technology, regulation and training, skydiving has become much safer over the last few decades. Safety devices like Automatic Activation Devices (AADs), will automatically trigger the deployment of the reserve parachute in the unlikely event that the instructor is not able to operate the equipment. The Operator reviews all the aircraft and gear periodically, and all the instructors are highly experienced with thousands of skydives each, which ensures that your skydiving experience is as safe as possible.

Photo and video packages can be purchased as extras.

You can add an exclusive beach landing on Etty Bay beach as an extra for just $30, it is quite a unique experience! 

It will often take around 1-2 hrs, however, it is safer to allow for half a day of activity as there may be weather or unforeseen circumstances out of The Operator's control.


Your booking time is for your check-in. When you arrive at reception, you will fill in some paperwork, and then you are assigned to a load or flight. The safety briefing and gear up with your instructor will take 10 min, followed by a 20 min flight to 14,000 feet.


Please ensure you do your check-in on time. If you have any issues please let us know in advance.

It depends on the size of the group and the aircraft operating on the day. If you want to skydive with your friends on the same flight, the crew will do their best to accommodate your request, please let them know when you check in.

  • Dress for the weather with comfortable casual clothes.
  • At 14,000 feet it will be cooler than on the ground, bear that in mind. The Operator can provide you with a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes if required.
  • The Operator will provide you with skydiving goggles. If you wear prescription glasses there are special oversized goggles.
  • Footwear is important, enclosed shoes that won’t fall off are required, no flip-flops or open sandals.

Almost any healthy person can skydive, even seniors over 70 years old. The Operator reserves the right to refuse a skydive after an assessment based on age, weight and general health. This is due to safety reasons, to protect both customers and staff.

Of course! The Operator wants visitors to make the best of the day skydiving. Friends and family are welcome to hang out at the premises and watch you boarding the plane and landing under parachute. If you do wish to bring spectators, please call and check that there is room on the shuttle bus.
