Take the leap and skydive!

Okay, there's no other way to put it: it's time to jump out of a plane! The most thrilling part of this experience is the freefall as soon as you jump, before the parachute has opened! You have 60 seconds of enthralling freefall time with the 15,000 ft jump, and 5 seconds with the 7,500 ft. Let the adrenaline take over and be amazed! Then, your tandem skydive buddy will release the parachute and you will have plenty of time gliding over gorgeous islands, crystal-clear reefs, tropical islands and 14km of Mission Beach's finest sandy stretches. Laugh, cry, scream or do all three as the unbelievable becomes real. Touch down with your feet in the sand on a gorgeous beach, before heading back to celebrate your skydive!

Legit one of the best things I've done in Australia. You're missing out if you don't do a skydive and Mission was a class place to do one. Big fan of the beach landing.

So good! Do the skydive! I was not sure about a skydive but my friend told me how much fun it was and I am so glad I did it.

Not quite as scary as I expected but still terrifying! Putting your legs out the door is such a unique feeling. Very glad you're with someone else who jumps for you, I don't know I'd have been able to do it myself but very glad I got to experience the jump!

This was one of the best things I've done in Australia and is something I'll have to do again, I loved every second of it!

We jumped together with a big group of friends and it was incredible! The best part is freefalling and feeling like you floating somehow. We also landed on the beach which is a great plus. Can only recommend it!
