Overview

A tandem skydive with Mackay Skydive is the best way to change your perspective, live and experience life to the full. With Mackay Skydive, you’ll have pristine views of Mackay and surrounds; an unimaginable free fall time of 45 seconds from 12000 ft above the ocean; and a stunning canopy riding with a touch down on the smooth sands of Mackay’s Town Beach. It's breathtaking!
