 What is a tandem skydive?

Tandem skydiving is the easiest and most hassle-free way to make your first skydive. You experience the thrill of freefall, skydiving and enjoy a long parachute descent. You will be securely attached to your instructor, in a dual harness, who will give you a taste of what skydiving is all about. Because the tandem instructor takes control of vital functions such as opening the tandem parachute and landing, your preparation for the jump just takes about 20 minutes.

You will receive a safety briefing from one of our tandem instructors. The instructor will explain, in detail:

The parachute equipment used for a tandem skydive is specially designed for two people. The actual parachute is over double the size of sports parachute equipment because it is suspending 2 people. The harness you wear is attached at four points to the front of your instructor.

When it is time to do your skydive, you will be supplied with a jumpsuit to go over your clothes, a pair of goggles and some headwear. We suggest you wear something loose fitting but comfortable underneath the jumpsuit.  Jogging bottoms or tracksuit bottoms are good. Trainers are perfect for footwear and once you are kitted up in your jumpsuit and wearing your harness, you will go and wait in an area we call the Pen. It is an area where you get checked out before you board the plane.

You will experience a 20-minute flight to ten thousand feet. The views out of the large windows on a clear day are breathtaking. You can see the whole of the Wirral, Liverpool, Snowdon and beyond. You will exit the aircraft and like the tandem student in the photo, you can experience the exhilarating skydive. Depending on your brief, you can use the opportunity to control the parachute. Your parachute descent starts at 5,000 feet. This is the ultimate skydiving experience.

We have a video service where you can relive your unforgettable tandem skydive. A professional videographer will be your host through your entire experience. Filming you before, during and after your skydive.
