How Much Does Skydiving Cost For The First Time?

Published: October 31, 2017

Have you ever wondered: how much does skydiving cost?

The cost of skydiving for the first time depends on how you choose to jump (spontaneous or with a reservation), and if you're going alone or with a group. The average price of a skydive is around $300, which buys you a tandem jump, attached to a highly experienced instructor. Skydiving at Long Island Skydiving Center costs $229 if you make a reservation, or $298 if you show up at the dropzone without a reservation. Jump for a second time and it's just $199!

What's included in the price of a tandem skydive?

It may be called "free" fall, but unfortunately, jumping out of an airplane doesn't come for free!

There are various costs that need to be covered in order to make your first skydive the experience you deserve. When you pay for a tandem skydive, you get:

  • A highly experienced tandem skydiving instructor to accompany you through your experience with us
  • A brief training session, during which you'll learn about your responsibilities as a tandem student, and about what you can expect during your jump
  • Use of all gear such as jumpsuits, goggles and helmets as required
  • A ride up to our exit altitude in our skydiving airplane
  • Approximately 60 seconds in freefall
  • Around 5-6 minutes of parachute flight

For the price of $229, you'll have the unforgettable experience of a lifetime. But that's something you can't put a price on. Check out our info and rates for more information.

Costs associated with a first time skydive

The costs associated with a first time skydive go beyond the price you pay for your jump. When you choose to make your first skydive with us, you can rest assured that you're jumping with a United States Parachute Association (USPA) member skydiving center, and that we maintain all of our equipment and aircraft to the highest standards.

You also get to jump with a highly experienced, USPA approved skydiving instructor. That means you'll benefit not only from their knowledge, but also from their passion for the sport. And they're happy to share all of it with you.

Have you ever met someone who's jumped from an airplane hundreds, if not thousands, of times? They're a pretty awesome kind of person! Spending your first time skydiving with such a passionate skydiver makes a huge difference for your experience.

Then there are our amazing dropzone facilities. Why not bring along your family and friends to watch and cheer you on? While they wait, they can enjoy good food and great views of the landing area.

Group discounts for your first skydive

Fancy jumping with your friends and family? Perhaps you and your work colleagues want to make a skydive together as a bonding experience? That's all possible here at Long Island Skydiving Center - and you'll get a discount on the price, too!

Bring a group of 4-7, and you'll receive a $10 discount per person. For a group of 8+, we can give you $20 off each. If you come to skydive with 16 or more of your friends, you'll receive one free jump - which you're welcome to use for your own skydive.

What other costs are associated?

As well as the price of the skydive itself, you can upgrade your jump to include skydiving videos and pictures. You'll get high quality photos and video of your jump to capture your once in a lifetime skydiving adventure. Plus, you'll be able to easily share it with family and friends on Facebook, YouTube and your other social networks. Check out a sampling of videos on our YouTube Channel!
