Skydive Australia: Jump the Beach Mission Beach
Mission Beach – No doubt the most gorgeous and idyllic place to have a skydive, magnificent rainforest that comes right down to the golden sands of a tropical palm fringed beach, Tropical Islands, the Great Barrier Reef and almost the best kept secret in Oz.
Jump the Beach Mission Beach - Up to 14,000ft tandem skydive (up to 60 seconds freefall)
A Jump The Beach day of adventure and it doesn't end there! It's also a great day out with friends at one of Queensland's unspoilt destinations, beautiful Mission Beach; just south of Cairns, Australia. Our expert instructors guide you out of our plane for a tandem skydive above one of the most beautiful scenes in the world. From up to 14,000ft in the air, you'll have views of 14 kilometres of golden beaches, lush World Heritage listed rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef and tropical islands.
But let's get real - you're not here just for the tropical scenery. Adrenaline will flow through your body like a freight train, and you'll leap into the most exhilarating experience of your life. No prior training is necessary - we'll teach you everything you need to know for a tandem skydive before we take off in the plane. You'll be strapped to one of our experienced skydivers who will guide you all the way from cloud-9 back to earth.
There are a couple of reasons why you should leap out of a plane with Jump The Beach. Your veins will receive a good flushing of adrenalin to clean them out, and this is an experience you can get no other way! Jump The Beach has a 'grade A' safety record. Imagine free falling from up to 14,000 ft (4000 m), at 200 kph, for up to 60 seconds with your professional Tandem Master. Then relax as you glide under your parachute for approximately 5 minutes, taking in the spectacular views of tropical islands, golden sand and the Great Barrier Reef on your way back down. Finally, you come back down to earth, with a soft landing on the beautiful Mission Beach.
Requirements: Wear shorts, T-shirts and joggers. You should be fit, weigh less than 100 kgs and be at least 12 years old (persons under 18 require a parent/guardian's authorisation). If over 95 kg, weight surchage of $25 applies and is payble on the day of your skydive. 24 hours must have elapsed since any deep water dive.
