From booking to skydiving out of a plane
What to expect on your first skydive
Skydiving is one of the most incredible experiences you will ever have! Fear of heights is no excuse, being over 4000 meters above the ground, you won’t experience vertigo. Because of the relative wind upon exiting the aircraft, you won’t feel the stomach drop typical of roller coasters either. Make no mistake though, it will be breath-taking! If you are looking for the ultimate Skydiving in Sydney experience you have landed in the right place.
Make a Booking
Book or gift a skydiving package using our secure online system or over the phone. You can book your preferred date and time slot or purchase a gift voucher (valid for 3 years).

Yay!…feeling nervous yet?!
Being the only self-contained dropzone to skydive in Sydney, we walk to the boarding area, where your friends and family can watch you hop on the plane. Then a 20 min flight to altitude, with panoramic views from the Blue Mountains to the Coast. The door opens and…60 seconds of freefall reaching 200km/h!

Here to give you peace of mind
We are here to help you, before, during and after the skydive. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
What time will we be skydiving?
We will often have you checked in and jumped within 2-3 hours, however it is safer to plan for a 1/2 day activity as there may be weather or unforeseen circumstances out of our control.
The time you are booked for is your check-in time. When you arrive at the dropzone you will need to complete some paperwork and then you are assigned to a load. The safety briefing from your instructor and gear up will take 10 min, followed by a 20 min flight to altitude.
Please ensure you check-in on time. If you have any special time constraints or needs please ensure you notify us beforehand. We do our best to keep the day running smoothly but sometimes we are held up due to unforeseen circumstances. At Sydney Skydivers we use the best safety and risk management system and we have real time flight departure boards at the dropzone to keep you informed of your flight. Staff will also keep you updated in regard to timings or any delays. Safety is of the utmost importance to us and if we have to wait on the ground or put jumping on hold to ensure your safety, then we will. We endeavour to complete an individual’s jump in a timely manner.
How many people can go up in the same plane to skydive?
That will depend on how many people are in your group. We operate large turbine aircrafts which are perfect for groups, however exact numbers on aircraft are affected by weights, how many want outside cameras and other operational factors. The number of your group on the aircraft can vary from 2-3 people up to 5-6 people on average. We can advise you on the day who and how many will be on each plane load and we will do our best to accommodate group requests. If you have any special needs please let us know at check-in.
What's the minimum age to skydive in Sydney?
By law, the minimum age for tandem skydiving in Australia is 16 years of age. Any person under 18 years of age needs their parent or guardian’s written permission. There is no maximum age to skydive, however, we reserve the right to refuse a skydive based on our assessment based on age, weight and health to ensure everyone’s safety. If you have any questions, concerns or anything you need to discuss with us please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us to avoid disappointment on the day.
Are there any weight restrictions for skydiving in Sydney?
Due to safety reasons, the maximum weight to skydive in Sydney is 115 kg. We weigh each person at check-in. Over 95kg charges apply: $25 over 95kg, $50 over 100kg, $100 for max. weight of 110kg
What should I wear to go skydiving in Sydney?
Comfortable casual clothes. Dress for the weather on the day, it can be a little cooler at 14,000ft. We will provide you with a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes as well as skydiving goggles. If you wear glasses that’s fine, we have special over glasses goggles. Secure footwear that’s not going to fall off is a must. No flip flops or thongs. Enclosed shoes such as runners are required. Remember to empty your pockets!
Is skydiving in Sydney safe?
Like in any other extreme sport, there are risks involved in skydiving. Thanks to the advancements in technology, regulation and training, however, the sport has become much safer over the last few decades. Safety devices like AADs, installed in all our rigs, ensure that even in the unlikely event that a skydiver is unable to manually deploy their main parachute, the device will trigger the deployment of the reserve parachute automatically. That coupled with stringent safety procedures and processes as well as experienced instructors ensures that your skydiving experience is as safe as possible.
What are the physical requirements for skydiving ?
Almost anyone with good health can do a Tandem skydive, even seniors over 80 years old. For the safety of our staff and customers, we reserve the right to refuse a skydive after our assessment based on age, weight and health. If you have any questions, concerns, or anything you need to discuss, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us to avoid disappointment on the day.
Does your stomach drop when you skydive?
You don’t get that roller coaster sensation when skydiving. The aircraft will be flying at a relatively high speed, when jumping out you experience relative air resistance, and quickly transition into terminal velocity. The feeling is closer to floating over air molecules than dropping.
Can I cancel a booking?
Bookings can be cancelled and a full refund given provided that at least 48 hours notice is provided. If you cannot make it on your booked day, let us know more than 24 hours in advance and we can reschedule your skydive at no extra cost. Our vouchers and credit are valid for 3 years.
Can I change the date or time of a booking?
Yes, if you cannot make it on the day or time of your skydive we can reschedule at no extra cost to a more convenient time. Changes made within 24 hours of your booking time will attract a $50 change fee.
Can I book a skydive for someone else?
Do you have skydiving vouchers or gift cards?
Yes, and they make the gift of a lifetime! If you are planning a surprise visit to the dropzone for a skydive you can make a booking choosing a specific date, otherwise you can purchase a Sydney skydiving gift voucher that can be used in the future. Our vouchers are valid for 3 years.
Are skydiving photos or video included?
Photos and video packages can be purchased as extras, either at time of booking or when you arrive at the dropzone for your check-in. With out skydiving ultimate video package you can even get your very own videographer, even in freefall.
Sydney Skydivers is the only self-contained dropzone in Sydney. No buses or transfers are required from the lounge to the plane. This means your friends and family can watch you board the plane and land under parachute from just a few meters away, and take as many photos and videos as they want!
CAN I BRING FRIENDS OR FAMILY SKYDIVING?
Absolutely! We operate a self-contained dropzone, which means that you and your friends or family can hang out before and after your skydive. You can enjoy a picnic on our extensive grass areas while you watch planes take off and skydivers land. Pets are also welcome in our dropzone, but for safety reasons, you must keep them from entering into aircraft or landing restricted areas.
