You’re required to raise a minimum of £395 in sponsorship. If you select one of the charities listed they will allow you to use some sponsor monies raised to cover the cost of your jump. The breakdown is –
£230 pays for your skydive. (£50 deposit is required at the time of booking. Leaving on the day you arrive to jump £180 to pay.)
£165 then goes to the charity.
The payment for your jump includes the instructor payment & third party insurance.
If you raise more than £395 the cost of the skydive remains the same & the charity receives a bigger donation. We will provide you with sponsorship forms when we have received your deposit. All the charities listed on our website are happy for you to use sponsor moines to cover the cost of your jump. Please note that website is more up to date than our actual booking forms so you may find a charity listed there & not on the booking from. Just write it on the booking form yourself where indicated.
Some people prefer to cover the cost of the jump themselves not using sponsor monies raised which is fine. If you wish to pay yourself then we ask that you just raise a minimum of £165 for the charity/cause of your choice.

Please note that on the day of your jump you are required to pay for the balance of your skydive with cash or postal order. If you have used Just Giving to raise all of your sponsorship online then you will not be able to do this. Therefore we suggest that some sponsorship money is raised using the sponsor forms provided in order to be able to jump for free.
If you wish to raise funds for a charity/cause not on our website or booking form all you need to do is contact the charity/cause for permission. We would then require a letter or email from them stating –
1. They are happy for you to take part in a charity tandem skydive raising funds for them.
2. To confirm whether they are happy for you to use sponsor monies to cover the cost of your jump or not.
3. To deal directly with you for any monies you rase.
Just send us a copy of this letter or email in with your booking form & deposit.
We aim to jump from up to 12000 feet but we may also have the opportunity to jump from 15000 feet which is the highest jump altitude allowed in the UK with 60 seconds in freefall! If 15000 feet is possible then a £40 upgrade fee is payable on the day of your jump.
All that is required to book your skydive is a deposit of £50. Remember this is not on top of the £395 to raise, its part of it.
Do not start fundraising until you have returned your booking form to us with your deposit and received confirmation of your jump date from us.
We are open for jumping all year for weekends & Bank Holiday Monday’s. Between April & October some Friday afternoons. . Arrival times are 8am or midday. From November to February arrival times are 9am only. Fridays 1pm arrival. We are normally closed for jumping the last weekend of December.
We will send out a text/email the day before saying either the jump is planned to go ahead or cancelled due to the weather. Sometimes the decision is not made until late afternoon or early evening the day before. On very rare occasions we have sent messages out on the day of the jump if the weather has changed drastically overnight.
Remember you need to allocate at least half a day after training for the jump and sometimes it could be longer. It is impossible to give any ideas of jump timings.
If you are booking accommodation the day before or after the jump bear in mind that this is a weather dependant sport and forecasts can change at short notice.
Skydive Swansea is not responsible for your costs incurred if the jump is cancelled.
