Modern Sport for Modern People

Not far from Baton Rouge, Slidell, New Orleans, Hammond, or any location in the gulf coast region, Gold Coast Skydiving makes for a great day trip! Jumping out of a plane is way more exciting than going to the zoo or park, or at least we think so! Whether you're a single jumper or a large group event (birthday party, bachelor party, etc.), we provide accommodations to meet your needs.

With over 20 years in business, we are proud of the knowledge and experience we bring to the table. With this experience, we can provide you with a fun and enjoyable time at our dropzone. Our instructors come with years of experience, including 4 world record holders, a 3 time world champion, and 2 members of the U.S. Army Parachute Team. We can't wait to jump with you!

The tandem skydive is a great choice for first-time or beginner skydivers in the New Orleans area. This option requires no prior experience!

In a tandem jump, you are strapped to an experienced instructor who maneuvers the jump for you. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is one of the most extraordinary adventures you will ever have. You can have the opportunity to experience solo freefall! When you opt for an AFF jump, you are in control of your own parachute and rip cord. After many clients choose to AFF jump they report feeling a great sense of pride in their courage to take such a thrilling adventure.

AFF students are required to take an in-depth course prior to the first jump, and will be accompanied by our highly experienced instructors for the first three levels of instruction.

Make the jump from OVER TWO AND A HALF MILES above the ground for an experience like no other!
