Modern Sport for Modern People

Only a short drive from New Orleans or anywhere in the Gulf Coast region, Gold Coast Skydiving makes for a great day trip! Forget the zoo or the park, and spend your day taking the plunge with an adrenaline-pumping 14,000 foot jump. Whether you’re a single jumper or a large group event (birthday party, bachelor party, etc.), we provide accommodations to meet your needs.

We have been in business for over 20 years—longer than any other skydiving company in the area. This allows us to provide the necessary experience to make sure your jump is safe and enjoyable. We have some of the most experienced instructors in the industry, including 4 world record holders, a 3 time world champion, and 2 members of the U.S. Army Parachute Team. We are here to make sure your skydiving experience is one to remember!

The tandem skydive is a great choice for first-time or beginner skydivers in the New Orleans area. No previous experience required! With just a short 10 minute course prior to the jump, you’ll be ready to go.

For this type of jump, you will be safely attached to your instructor, who will handle most of the “work.” All you’ll have to do is enjoy the ride while your instructor safely guides you through this amazing experience.

Accelerated Freefall (AFF) is one of the most intense, yet exhilarating experiences you can have while skydiving in New Orleans. You will have the chance to experience solo freefall! During an AFF jump, you will be responsible for pulling your own ripcord and controlling your own parachute. Many people say that an AFF jump is a very rewarding experience and gives them a great sense of achievement.

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!
