Overview
Get a stunning aerial view of the Whitsunday Islands and coastline on a tandem skydive tour from Airlie Beach. With a trained instructor, jump from up to 15,000 feet (4,570 meters) and view the sugar-white, sandy beaches and beautiful blue waters from a different perspective. Experiencing the unique sensation of free-falling combined with the incredible scenery of the Whitsundays seen from above will make your trip here even more memorable.
Highlights
  • Get an incredible view of the Whitsundays with a thrilling tandem skydive
  • Jump from up to 15,000 feet (4,570 meters) and free-fall for 60 seconds
  • Enjoy more amazing aerial island views on a 20-minute scenic flight
  • Tour includes gear and round-trip transport from your Airlie Beach hotel
What to Expect
Your exhilarating skydive tandem tour over Queensland’s most popular tourist spot begins with pickup at your Airlie Beach hotel. Head to the Skydive Airlie Beach location to receive a safety briefing with your qualified jump instructor. After a 20-minute flight over the scenic Whitsunday Islands to achieve up to a 15,000-foot (4,570-meter) altitude, experience a thrilling 60-second free fall of up to 135 miles (220 kilometers) per hour over crystal-blue waters and white-sand beaches. Once the canopy pops open, your descent takes between five and seven minutes, giving you plenty of float time to enjoy the beautiful, lush scenery. To remember your adventurous experience over the Whitsundays, there are a number of optional photo and video packages to purchase at the end of your skydive.

My weight has been constantly fluctuating between 109-114kg depending on the day, what I’ve eaten and what I’m wearing. The website stated that the maximum weight limit for a skydive at Airlie beach was 115kg. I received emails stating this and I called the day before my jump

Hey Kristen, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback - we really appreciate it. We're stoked to hear that your skydive was amazing. Please be assured that we only delay skydives if we really have to. Customer safety is our priority - we’ll never rush through the process and risk providing an unsafe experience. We are disappointed to hear that you felt the communication from our crew was not up to scratch and therefore we will be looking into all of your comments internally. With regards to wearing your own GoPro, please know that our Tandem Masters are required to undergo specialised training and must complete a certain number of jumps before being permitted to carry items during freefall, which is why customers are not permitted to carry their own GoPro or other objects during their jump. If you wish to discuss your experience further, please do not hesitate to contact us on feedback@skydive.com.au. Blue Skies, The Skydive Australia crew

Booked a tandem for myself. Then my wife amazingly decided she was going to jump too, awesome! I have lost a lot of weight and was told the 109kg was good to jump and the website even states up to 115kg is ok "subject to assessment and Safety Officer approval." So I show up

Hey there, Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback - we really appreciate it. Our website FAQ's covers all 15 locations in Australia, however, Airlie Beach has a maximum limit of 110kg which is displayed on signage at check in. The maximum weight at each DZ varies each day depending on which instructors are working and the conditions on the day (hence why it is subject to assessment). As an aviation rule when weighing passengers, we must include everything that is going into the plane, including clothing and shoes. We are disappointed to hear your feedback in regards to the communication and information you received and will be following up internally with our crew to provide a better service moving forward. If you wish to discuss your experience further, please feel free to email us on feedback@skydive.com.au Blue Skies, The Skydive Australia crew

You have to pay 50$ extra if you weigh over 95kg and 75$ for over 105kg. I absolutely get than and since i am 200cm
