A tandem skydive is the perfect option for a novice skydiver in the Gulf Coast area. This requires no previous experience. You will receive your training and jump afterwards on the same day.

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 extraordinary adventures you will ever have. You can have the opportunity to experience solo freefall! During an AFF jump, you will be responsible for pulling your own ripcord and controlling your own parachute. Most people who choose an AFF jump say they feel an internal sense of accomplishment when it's all over.

In order to participate in an AFF jump, an in-depth course must be completed by the jumper, and then the first three levels of instruction will be joined by a highly qualified instructor.

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