Within a few hours of New Orleans, Slidell, Baton Rouge, Hammond, or anywhere in the gulf coast region, Gold Coast Skydiving is the place to spend your free day! Jumping out of a plane at 14,000 feet 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.

We have been operating for over 20 years and are proud of the solid reputation we've built. This allows us to provide the necessary experience to make sure your jump is safe and enjoyable. The experience our instructors bring to the table is impressive, 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. No previous experience required! ‚ÄčAll we require is a short safety course before the jump and you're all set!

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 thrilling adventures you will ever experience. You will have the chance to experience solo freefall! When you opt for an AFF jump, you are in control of your own parachute and rip cord. 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!
