Skydiving has been on my bucket list for years, so when I had the opportunity for some skydiving in Caloundra, I jumped at the chance (pun intended). I booked my skydive through Backpacker Deals, and the entire experience was beyond amazing.
First and foremost, the flight over the stunning coastline of South Sunny Coast, including Caloundra and Bribie Island, was absolutely exhilarating. The views were breathtaking, and it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The scenery was so beautiful that I couldn’t help but forget about the nerves that I had beforehand.
The experienced skydive instructors were a huge part of why the journey was so fun and helped calm my nerves. They were knowledgeable, patient, and kept me informed of what to expect throughout the entire process. They made sure I was comfortable and safe every step of the way.
The freefall was definitely the highlight of the experience. Dropping at 200km/hr for 60 seconds felt like an incredible feeling of flying. It was a rush of adrenaline that I will never forget. The sensation of soaring through the air was indescribable, and it was hard to believe that I was really doing it.
The landing was equally amazing. It was a smooth touchdown on the beach at Currimundi, which was another highlight of the experience. It was the perfect way to end the adventure.
The photos that were taken during the skydive were totally worth purchasing. They captured my the entire experience, including all of my emotions and the beautiful views, which made them great reminders of the experience. It was also great to receive a certificate to commemorate the accomplishment.
Finally, it was nice to have transportation back to the airport. It allowed me to relax and really reflect on the experience. I felt the adrenaline rush for days after the jump, and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. It was actually my second jump after doing one in New Zealand 17 years ago, and the feeling was just as amazing!
If you’re looking for an adventure and a rush of adrenaline, I highly recommend tandem skydiving in Caloundra. The incredible views, experienced skydive instructors, and unforgettable freefall make it an experience that you will never forget!
