It was really good. Exhilarating I would say. It was my first dive and I was bit nervous first. When I see more people skydiving for the first time, my nervousness vanished into thin air. It was about 60 seconds free fall which was my best experience ever. When on parachute the view was beautiful. I would love to do it again for sure. Sky diving isn’t what people think it is, it’s really fun and I would recommend everyone to do it once in their lifetime.

If you’re in the reviews because you can’t decide if you want to do it or not, definitely go and do it! All of the staff are super amazing and great fun to be around. There is no way to describe what it feels like to jump out of a plane the best way is to just go and do it for yourself as it’s a great way to push your mind and body. After landing all I wanted to do was get back on the plane and go again it was that amazing, 10/10 experience and something you will never forget. Get it booked.

Exhilarating experience at 14000ft, all thanks to Cindi who was an experienced and friendly instructor. There were, however, problems regarding organisation and communication with the bus driver, who didn’t pick us up at the right time even though we were already there at the scheduled time.

Frequent questions about skydiving in Airlie Beach

Here to give you peace of mind

We are here to help you, before, during, and after your skydive in Airlie Beach. Contact us with any other questions you may have.

How old do you have to be to skydive in Australia?

The legal minimum age to skydive in Australia is 16 years old. All minors need their parent or guardian’s written permission to skydive. While there is not a maximum age limit to skydive we reserve the right to refuse a passenger, based on weight and health to ensure the safety of our visitors and our staff. Please contact us to discuss your particular situations and avoid disappointment on the day.

Weight limit to skydive in Australia

The maximum weight to skydive in Australia is 110 kg. At Airlie Beach Skydivers we weigh all customers at check-in. Charges apply for over 95kg: $25 over 95kg, $50 over 100kg and $100 for the max. weight of 110kg. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Skydiving safety

There are risks involved in skydiving, but thanks to the advancements in technology and training, it has become much safer over the last few decades. Safety features 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 gear. At Airlie Beach Skydivers we review all our aircraft and gear periodically. All our skydiving instructors are highly experienced with thousands of skydives each and qualified under the Australian Parachute Federation.

Skydiving video and photos

At Airlie Beach Skydivers we have several photo and video packages that you can purchase as optional extras. You can include it at the time of booking or purchase when you check-in on the day of your skydive. Visit our skydiving prices to know more.

Do you offer beach landings with your skydive?

All our skydives include a beach landing on Midge Point at no extra cost.

How long will take to go skydiving?

It is safe to allow for half a day activity as there may be weather or unforeseen circumstances out of our control.

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

Can I wear jeans skydiving?

  • Think of the weather on the day and wear comfortable casual clothes.
  • At 14,000 feet it will be colder than on the ground. We can provide a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes, but it is normally not required.
  • We will provide skydiving goggles. If you wear glasses it is not a problem as we have special oversized goggles for that purpose.
  • Don’t wear flip flops or sandals, enclosed footwear that will not go loose is a must.
