Skydive Southwest Florida uses the tandem jump as your introduction to this awesome sport. A tandem jump is where you are physically harnessed to the instructor for the entire jump. This allows you the "peace of mind" to completely enjoy your jump without having to "worry" about a bunch of mind bending training. If you decide skydiving is for you after your first jump, we offer complete instruction up to and beyond certification. You will jump from over 10,000 feet and freefall for about a minute, and then descent for 5 to 7 minutes under a large parachute designed for two. The landings will literally amaze you. Some, are soft, some are stand-ups, some are butt slides, and, yes, sorry to say some are harder than normal! You can have your skydive recorded. We can also "mix" your video tape to your favorite music. We have a large selection of perfect skydiving music, but if you prefer your own, bring the CD with you. The video is available either on DVD or online (to share with you friends using social media and can be downloaded on your computer or phone) and/or pictures (30 to 45 HD pictures you can download directly on your computer or phone). Video packages are optional, but highly recommended. After landing you'll receive your First Jump Certificate.
