Tandem Skydiving

The experience of a lifetime from up to 12,000 feet …….. or even 15000 feet!

A tandem skydive is the ideal first jump – you will experience the thrill of freefall and enjoy a high performance canopy ride whilst attached to a fully qualified instructor. On arrival you will be introduced to your tandem instructor who will take you through all the training required for you to do your skydive. This includes a talk about the equipment to be used, aircraft orientation as well as covering what you can expect in freefall and finally the position you need to adopt for landing. The training takes about 30 minutes and your instructor will be pleased to answer any questions that you may have.

For your jump we will provide you with a jumpsuit, gloves, goggles and headgear. Next you will be fitted into the dual harness.

You will be jumping from up to 12,000 feet. It takes around 15 minutes for the aircraft to reach altitude so you will have time to relax and enjoy the spectacular views.

Once at altitude, you are ready to go! You will be freefalling at 120mph for about 45 seconds. Your instructor will deploy the parachute by 5,000 feet. The parachute has dual controls so you can aid the instructor by spiralling the parachute around the sky.

Your instructor will take control of the parachute for the landing. All in all it is an experience guaranteed to take your breath away!

We may have the opportunity to jump from 15000 feet which is the highest jump altitude allowed in the UK with 60 seconds in freefall! You cannot book this height but if available on the day you jump you may upgrade by adding on £30 to the 12000 feet jump price.


To commemorate your skydive you will be presented with a certificate at the end of the jump.

Price – £240

The cost for the tandem skydive, includes the instructor payment and third party insurance. A deposit of £50 is required at the time of booking. If 15000 feet is available on the day you may upgrade and pay the additional £30.

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.

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.
