With the clouds above and a marine playground below, this plummet will trump every scenic thing you’ve admired before. Get ready to shake up the ordinary and skydive in tropical style!

A roaring bar scene, unfathomable natural beauty, and rarely a day below 25 degrees. Oh yes, Airlie Beach delivers on the hype and big promises.

Important info before travel

Weight is an important factor in skydiving and aviation. It affects aircraft weights and balances, fuel allowances, climb rates, and equipment maintenance. Once at the drop zone, all customers are subject to a weight assessment by a Tandem Master. Click for more information and FAQs.

If a customer weighs over 94 kg, our reservations team must be notified in writing prior to the jump date. The following weight surcharges will apply (payable at the drop zone):

94kg – 104 kg = $50.00 AUD
105kg – 114 kg = $75.00 AUD*
115 kg and over = $100.00 AUD**

Acceptance of Booking Terms and Conditions: Confirmation of a booking and authorization of payment indicate acceptance of these booking terms and conditions. You also agree to further indemnify SA’s associate companies, directors, and associates against any risk or action related to your participation in your skydive.


Availability of Jump Dates and Time Slots: All jump dates and times are subject to availability. Always check availability and days of operation, either online or with the SA reservations team, prior to confirming a booking on behalf of the customer.

Location and Duration of a Tandem Skydive: Note that all bookings are given an ‘arrival/check-in’ time only. Please note that this is not a skydive ‘jump’ time. While SA endeavors to complete an individual’s tandem skydive within 4 hours of arrival, SA advises arriving with no time constraints and should plan for this to be a whole day’s activity. As safety is SA’s main concern, factors such as wind, cloud, rain, thermal turbulence, etc., and other factors such as air traffic can affect the time it takes to complete the skydive activity. Weather can change for better or worse in minutes, and customers will be unable to skydive unless they are at SA’s Drop Zone. SA utilises multiple landing sites at each of its locations. The location of the landing site for each parachute drop may vary depending on weather conditions, with the focus being on customer safety. Customers must remain with their Tandem Master and listen to their instructions, as landing areas may present additional hazards such as sand dunes, tides, or local wildlife. Refunds or compensation will not be made if a spectator does not witness a landing.

Personal Identification: Make sure that you and everyone in your group have a valid government-issued photo ID upon arrival at the drop zone on the day of your skydive.

Age Requirements: By law, the minimum age to tandem skydive in Australia is 16 years old. SA must be notified in writing prior to the jump date if a customer is between 16 and 18 years of age and must have parental or legal guardian consent. If under 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must be present at the drop zone on the day of the skydive. If a parent or legal guardian is not present, the customer must immediately notify a member of staff at the drop zone, who will arrange for the correct documents of consent to be sent and signed prior to skydiving.


Medical Conditions: Skydive Australia must be notified prior to the jump date of any pre-existing or existing medical conditions, injuries, or illnesses. You will also be asked when you check in and may require an assessment from our safety officer. Medical conditions that could affect the customer’s safety should be discussed with a doctor to ensure customers are fit to skydive. If required, bring a medical certificate with you from your doctor confirming you are okay to participate in a skydive. Please advise SA if you are taking prescription medication. It is our obligation to inform you that if you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms or blocked sinuses on the day of your skydive, it may potentially lead to further health complications during or after your jump, and we urge you to proceed with caution.

Consumption of Alcohol or ‘Recreational’ Drugs: No alcohol or “recreational” drugs are to be consumed within 8 hours prior to the scheduled skydive jump time. For the safety of all customers and staff, SA reserves the right to refuse customers who are suspected of being intoxicated or having impaired judgment, and this does not constitute a claim for a refund.

Restrictions for Scuba Diving: Due to medical restrictions, you must not scuba dive within 24 hours of the scheduled skydive jump time.

Restrictions on Personal Electronic Equipment: For the safety of all customers and in accordance with skydive regulations, the use of all electronic devices, including personal cameras and video equipment, is not permitted on the aircraft or at any time during the jump.

Purchasing Photos and Videos: While it is not mandatory to book a video or photographs, it is advisable, as on some occasions a late change of mind may result in disappointment. If you have purchased a video package through SA, it will be tested on the day of your tandem skydive and then made available for viewing on the same day. Your acceptance of the video on the day will be deemed to be your approval of it being in full working order. No refunds will be made available after your departure from our offices for those videos that are considered not to be in full working order. Please be advised that should there be any technical issues relating to camera or dubbing equipment, no refunds can be made for the individual Skydive as the filming and Skydive are two separate products. If we are unable to provide you with the skydive video or photo product due to technical issues, a refund for the video or photo product purchased will be issued. If only a portion of your video or photo product fails, you will be issued a refund for the balance of the amount paid less the value of the product actually received.

Copyright Photos and Videos: Videos and photographs purchased through SA remain the copyright of the videographer who took the footage, and they own and retain the right to the footage and photographs. A licence agreement exists between SA and the respective videographer who took the respective footage. Such footage may be used by SA for company marketing purposes and reproduction of videos sold. It may only be used or reproduced by the purchaser or recipient for private or domestic purposes and must not be used for any commercial purpose, including promotion of any supplier’s products or services without the videographer’s and SA’s prior permission. Should you not want any of your footage or photographs uploaded to SA social media platforms or used in company marketing, it is your responsibility to advise our SA staff prior to your jump.

Australian Parachute Federation (APF): APF membership is mandatory for all tandem skydive customers. The APF membership levy is included in the price of your tandem skydive; there are no other hidden fees or prices. Wherever possible, all customers must pre-register with the APF before arriving at the drop zone. Links to the APF form may be found in your confirmation email. All payments and documents must be completed prior to skydiving.

Online Check-in Form (APF Registration): Wherever possible, all customers must complete an online check-in form, including pre-registration with the Australian Parachute Federation (APF), before arriving at the drop zone. Links to the online check-in form may be found on the confirmation email, emailed or sent via a text message prior to arrival, or on a mobile device on arrival at the skydive drop zone. All documents must be completed by the guest, not the agent, prior to skydiving. A safety briefing and gear-up must be completed by the guest on arrival.

Personal Accident Insurance (PAI): This is included in the cost of your skydive but does not cover anyone over the age of 75.

Group Discount Policy: Group discounts apply to customers who book more than 4 or 8 customers together. Click here for more information. If customers originally book as a group and receive a group discount, and then they choose to split up the group, cancel, or amend dates, then group members will no longer be entitled to the group discount. Group discounts cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.

SA Changes to Product and Pricing: SA reserves the right to change any pricing, special offers, products, or packages without notice.

Payment Policy: All payments are non-refundable. A full prepayment is required at the time of booking. Alternatively, a $50 (per person) deposit may be paid when booking directly with our reservations team over the phone or online. If your booking was made on November 1, 2022, onwards, the remaining balance must be paid at least 72 hours prior to arrival at the drop zone. For bookings confirmed within 72 hours of arrival, full payment must be made at the time of booking. Cash payments are not accepted at the drop zone.

Credit Card Surcharges: Credit card payments for skydive bookings, which are processed over the phone directly by our Reservations team or via our direct online booking cart, will not attract credit card surcharges. Credit card payments processed at the drop zones will attract credit card surcharges, which are as follows: Visa/Mastercard/AliPay/WeChatPay: 0.8%, AMEX/JCB: 1.6%, and UnionPay: 2%. Credit card surcharges are subject to change and are non-refundable.

Cancellations and No Shows by a Customer: Notice of a cancellation must be provided by email to SA Reservations. Cancellations of one or more customers received at any time (including customers who do not show up at the drop zone on the jump date) will incur a cancellation fee of 100% of the total booking value.

Amendments by a Customer: Any amendment to the scheduled jump date or time within 24 hours of the jump date will be subject to a rebooking fee of $100 per person. Name changes must be provided by email to SA Reservations; however, this will not incur a fee. A booking can be rescheduled any number of times; however, the booking will only remain valid for a period of 12 months from the original jump date. After this date, all payments will be forfeited, and no refunds will be given.

Customer’s Change of Mind: Payments will be forfeited, and no refunds will be given to a customer who fails to go through with a skydive or decides to change to a different experience of lesser value.

Changes by SA to a Confirmed Skydive: To ensure the highest standards are maintained, SA reserves the right to reschedule or alter a tandem skydive with no prior notification. These changes do not constitute a claim for a refund and include changes to the type of aircraft used, drop zone, check-in time, jump time, number of participants in a plane, altitude reached, duration of free fall, and location. Providing customers with a 100% safe and amazing experience is our number one focus.

Cancellations or Changes by SA due to Weather: If a skydive is cancelled due to weather, SA will endeavour to rebook the jump on a suitable alternative date before leaving the drop zone. If this is not possible, a ‘limbo’ credit will be issued to the customer for the value of the original skydive. A limbo credit will remain valid for a period of 12 months from the original jump date. After this date, the credit will be forfeited, and no refunds will be given. This credit can be transferred to another SA location. Customers must pay any price difference if changing to an experience of a higher booking value, including upgrading to a higher jump height, changing to a weekend or public holiday, or changing products, packages, or skydive locations. Customers will not be due a refund if they change to an experience of lesser booking value. All groups will still be entitled to the group discount if their skydive is cancelled and they are unable to reschedule their jump as a group on the same date.
