Price for 1 participant

A tandem skydive in Cornwall offers more than just the considerable thrill of jumping from a plane... When you choose a skydiving in Cornwall, you choose to freefall over some of England's most beautiful scenery - the stunning Cornish coastline. In fact, the airfield and Perranporth is located right on a cliff-top, overlooking one of the top UK surfing beaches. You really could not ask for anything more while hurtling towards the ground at 120mph! 

The beauty of a tandem skydive is that you have all the thrills and enjoy the full fear-factor of freefall, while secure in the knowledge that a seasoned skydiver is in full control, leaving you free to simply enjoy the ride!

Your Tandem Skydive at Perranporth Airfield in Cornwall will begin with a registration signing session before sitting through a safety and technique brief with the instructor talking through a few points. Then, once briefed and ready - you'll move to the practice mats to begin the technique practical demonstration of tucking your legs and head when and where the instructor says! Then, once fully briefed - you'll don the safety gear and take to Newquay's only drop zone runway ready to take off! Sat between the legs of your instructor and in one of two skydiver rows, you'll reach the height of 10,000ft - where an instructor will open the hatch ready to begin the descents! When it's your turn, you and your instructor will shuffle to the open door where you will dangle your legs over the edge - ready to begin your unforgettable tandem skydive back to ground level. After 30-40 seconds of free fall, your instructor will open the parachute and you'll spend around 6-7 minutes floating back to earth with nothing but glorious Cornwall coastal views around you.
