About the Tandem Skydive

The Tandem Skydive is your first stop in the exciting world of skydiving! You will jump while attached to a highly-experienced tandem master.

Your Tandem Skydive begins with an orientation video, hosted by our knowledgeable manifest staff. The video will introduce you to the equipment that you will be using, as well as demonstrate the key positions that you will practice with your tandem master. After the video, you’ll be introduced to your tandem master, who will get you prepared for your jump. Your instructor will practice the key positions, as well as gear you up in a harness system. Preparation takes about 30-45 minutes. The instructor wears special equipment designed to take 2 people skydiving, and you wear a harness that attaches to the instructor's equipment at 4 points: (2 shoulder connectors & 2 hip connectors). You are very secure! The airplane ride to 10,500 ft or 12,500 ft is 25 minutes (depending on airplane used), circling Niagara Falls1 on the way up. Once at altitude, you will then freefall for an amazing 45 - 60 seconds before the instructor opens the main parachute. To finish your skydive experience, you help fly the parachute back to the landing area.

The Tandem Skydive requires a time commitment of up to 4 hours. There are several camera packages available to complement the Tandem Skydive.

Planning your Skydive

> Plan on arriving for check-in 15 minutes ahead of your reservation time.

> If you are redeeming any gift certificates or prepaid vouchers (e.g. WagJag, Groupon), you must bring a printed copy. Electronic or mobile app versions will not be accepted. Failure to have a printed copy may result in having to pay full price, pending verification of your voucher(s).

> Expedite your check-in process and save 10 minutes by completing Online Check-In before you arrive.

> Plan on being with us for approximately 2-4 hours2.

> Understand that the time you book for is not your actual jump time. It is your check-in time only.

> Wear comfortable clothing and sensible shoes. No sandals / flip-flops. Dress appropriately for the temperature of your jump day, and bring an extra layer (e.g. sweater) just in case.

> Consider bringing a snack with you, as there is no food service at the airport. We have plenty of picnic space, as well as microwaves and fridges, that you're more than welcome to use while with us! Light refreshments, such as coffee, tea, muffins, cookies, water and pop are available for purchase from the Niagara Central Airport Authority during their regular hours of 9:00am - 5:00pm. Cash only.


You must be at least 18 years of age (regardless of parental consent) on the day that you arrive to skydive with us. Government issued photo identification, such as a passport, driving licence, or provincial ID card, must be presented (Ontario Health Cards cannot be used). All skydive students must weigh 235 lbs (106 kg) or less for the Tandem, Solo, and PFF courses.

1. Due to localised inclement weather, or other air traffic control restrictions that may be in effect, there may be some instances, although rare, where we are unable to over-fly Niagara Falls on your specific flight.
2. This is only our best approximation. While the majority of our guests complete their skydive experience within this time frame, mechanical, equipment-related, aeronautical and meteorological events beyond our control may delay your experience. Please note that the time you book for is only your check-in time - it is not your jump time.
