Taking part in the charity tandem skydive is the experience of a lifetime and one you will never forget! You’ll take a leap of faith as you exit the aircraft to soar through the skies overlooking breathtaking scenery!
About the skydive

You can choose to skydive from 10,000ft or 15,000ft.

The charity tandem skydive experience is like nothing on earth and it’s pretty much accessible to all.
