How much does it cost to skydive on the Gold Coast?
Prices vary depending on location, flight height, the time of your skydive and the company you book with. You can save by booking a midweek experience or making a group booking of more than eight people to be eligible for a discount with some skydiving companies.
Can I skydive with prescription glasses or sunglasses?
Skydiving companies may offer goggles to fit over prescription glasses. This comes down to individual companies, so if it's a serious concern for you, it's best to enquire before booking.
Can I skydive solo?
You can not skydive solo until you have completed the AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) stage 1 course. Most skydiving centres run these courses which include ground training and classroom work before jumping wearing your own parachute with two skydiving instructors either side of you. You can then progress to stages 2-9 and even go on to acquire your A-Licence Full Solo Course.
What should I wear for skydiving?
You must wear enclosed shoes. It's best to wear clothes that are comfortable and loose fitting. Most skydiving companies will provide you with a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes for your jump. Leave accessories, including jewellery and watches, at home so you don't lose them mid-air.
What is the minimum age for skydiving?
The minimum age for skydiving in Australia is 12 years old. Permission from a parent or guardian is required for people under the age of 18 wanting to skydive.
Can I take my GoPro skydiving?
For safety reasons, most skydiving companies will not let you take a GoPro on your dive. Instead, you can purchase a video and/or photo package that documents your skydiving experience.
