FREE Rottnest Island Explorer Tour for every skydiver
Your Rottnest Island Tandem Skydiving experience begins with a 20 minute flight from Rottnest Island airport. From an altitude of 15, 14, 10 or 8,000 feet you will have amazing views of the turquoise waters below you.
Then it’s time for the door to open, and ready… set… GO!
The adrenaline starts pumping as you leave the aircraft, securely attached to your instructor and free-fall at 124-mph (200km/h) for up to 60 seconds! The ultimate rush as you spread your wings and ‘do the Superman’.
At 5,000ft your Tandem Skydiving Instructor will deploy your main parachute, and the world below starts to slow down. Now it’s time to take it all in for a 5 minute ride under the parachute, before a safe landing on sandy Rottnest Island beach.
