We came to the premises on time, and had to wait for a long time until anything happened. It's a bit of a tourist factory, didn't get any information about when we would be able to start the skydiving either.

Wouldn't go back! Too much waiting

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your review, we hope you enjoyed the actual skydive and those incredible views.

We pride ourselves on delivering a high level of customer service with exceptional communication, so are disappointed to hear the recount of your experience regarding lack of information, we will be following up with all staff involved.

The views on this dive are incredible! Definitely worth it to do 14,000 ft. Brant was great fun and we managed to free fall through a rainbow. The other great thing about this company is they are all over Australia. This means they are streamlined and flexible!

Just completed a tandem skydive with Skydive Cairns. The team got me booked in quickly after initially being cancelled in Mission Beach due to weather. Loved every minute of the skydive and had a great instructor Jono. Thanks for an unforgettable experience Jono - best thing I've ever done. Mark

Best experience of my life! Great for first time skydivers. Pick-up arrived early at our hotel. The instructors were great and everyone was super friendly. The picture and video package was worth the extra money and the photos came out great. Will 100% do again.

I did my first ever tandem skydive and all I can say is it is an absolute must. I booked it initially on a whim, in Brisbane but due to weather conditions had to reschedule to when I arrived in cairns and to be honest probably the best thing. Weather was fantastic perfect for that life changing event!!! The guys at the centre were well aware of the nerves and were completely brilliant at reassuring and just making sure you had fun with it even if you were bricking it big time!!! Max my instructor was brilliant and the banter between all the instructors was very amusing which made you feel a lot more at ease with the thought of plummeting god only knows how many ft to the ground.
It was by far the craziest but most amazing thing I have ever done and would totally recommend anyone thinking of doing it
JUST DO IT!! Would I jump again now there is another story.......
