Sky Dive Cape Town – Tandem Skydiving
Sky diving is the ultimate joy-ride and a tandem jump is the way to go if you want to try it out before committing to a full course. Experience the thrill of free-fall without the effort of learning all the theory.
On a tandem jump, you are strapped to a Tandem Instructor with a special harness that’s attached to a specially designed parachute large enough to support both of you. After only 15 minutes of ground briefing you will enjoy a spectacular 20 minute aircraft ride, experiencing the finest views of the West Coast, Cape Town, Robben Island and Table Mountain.
Then it’s action time! Out the door for a 120mph/200kph freefall, falling about 25-30 seconds from 9,000ft or for about 35-40 seconds from 11,000ft. The Tandem Instructor opens the parachute at about 5000ft, and a peaceful 3-4 minute parachute ride to the ground follows.
If you’d like to capture the moment, the club has a video cameraman who can accompany you on your jump.
Things to remember:
A tandem jump requires that you’re in general good health.
The maximum weight for a tandem passenger is 100kg (220lbs/15.75 stone). Please note that this is the absolute maximum permissible weight. Passengers are weighed on arrival to facilitate loading of the aircraft.
Parental consent is required for jumpers under the age of 18.
