Learn to Skydive!

The Experience of a lifetime

Learn to skydive and experience the thrill of jumping solo. We offer the First Jump Course any day of the week with a group and fly 365 days a year from 9am until Sunset when we have jumpers. We offer discounted jump packages to help you get your solo license faster and for less. We are also the only dropzone on the island to offer the Progressive Freefall (PFF) program which takes you up to 12500 feet on just your second jump – the industry standard for learning to skydive! Our passionate staff are by far the most experienced on the island and work hard to make this your best experience ever. Call now to inquire about our prices or simply book below! We look forward to sharing our love of this incredible sport with you!

First Jump Course

During the first jump course, you and your classmates will be taught the techniques and skills necessary to make your first skydive safe and enjoyable. The curriculum includes detailed instruction on the operation and use of the equipment as well as practical training using a suspended harness and an aircraft mock-up.

The first jump course takes approximately 4 to 5 hours and begins at 9am every Saturday or by special appointment for groups of 3 or more.

Your first jump will be made from 3,500 feet; your instructor will initiate the deployment of your main parachute as you leave the airplane.  After you’re under a good parachute, you’ll maneuver it yourself while under radio guidance from an instructor on the ground. We train you to fly and land your parachute during a surreal and serene canopy ride that is even better than the freefall experience for many people. Once you have landed, your instructor will provide a full debrief of your jump with you and will fill out your logbook. Hang onto your logbook, as it serves not only as a record of your accomplishment, but as important documentation of the training you have received as you progress toward becoming a full-fledged solo-rated skydiver and beyond.

We also have packages that allow you to get your Skydiving Solo license faster and cheaper than anywhere else! Call 250-655-0014 or email us for more information.
