FAQ

If you have any additional questions or concerns that we did not answer here, we encourage you to give us a call, or send us an email. Our knowledgeable staff would be more than happy to field all questions for you.

Is there an option of having my skydive videoed or photographed?

Absolutely! Nothing boasts more bragging rights than a Facebook profile photo of you jumping out of an airplane! Our Video Package includes video and stills. The video is between 5 and 7 minutes depending on how talkative you are. It includes footage of your training, airplane ride, aerial tour of the falls, free fall and canopy ride. As far as stills are concerned, the camera takes 2 hi-resolution pictures every second, so there are a lot of pics!

If I purchase the video, or photos (or both), what do I get with them?

Both the video and photos follow the same structure. Your tandem master/photographer will capture footage of you starting as soon as you get your gear on. Then, as you walk to the aircraft, they will engage you in some playful conversation about your upcoming experience. Once in the aircraft, they will get some footage of the scenic flight to jump altitude, including the flight over Niagara Falls. Once it’s time to jump, the camera is trained on you as you excitedly exit the aircraft! Once back on the ground, your photographer will run up to you, throw you a high-five, and congratulate you on a jump well done! Within hours of your jump you will receive an e-mail with a link to your photos and a sneak preview of your video. Within the proceeding 3-5 days you will receive: GoPro HD Stills, Original full resolution, GoPro HD Raw Video, Mobile Movie-Smart Phone Edition (MP4), iPad Movie (MP4) and Full Quality Movie (MP4). What a great value!

Will I really get 500 photos if I purchase the photo package?

You sure will! In fact, you’ll very likely get even more than that! Our cameras take two photos every one second while they’re running, and when we burn the discs, we don’t delete anything. So, while a few photos may be of your hip, or ear, you’ll get an incredible amount of money shots, capturing every second of your experience!

I have my own GoPro camera. Can I bring that with me on my skydive?

Sorry, but unfortunately, we cannot allow you to bring your own camera for your skydive. This is a rule enforced by the Canadian Sport Parachute Association, and is entirely for your personal safety. Unless you’re a fully-licenced skydiver, you cannot have anything attached to you. If you bring friends or family to watch, they are more than welcome to take photos from the ground.
