Skydiving NYC? The Experience of a Lifetime Outside the City
Looking for an amazing adventure? Skydiving NYC residents and visitors is what we do. We are the closest to New York City skydiving location you can get (skyscrapers don't make for easy landing), just 65 miles east of the city.
Proximity to New York City isn't the only reason you should head to Long Island Skydiving Center, here's an overview of what makes us the best choice for your skydiving NYC experience.
Beautiful Long Island Location
All skydivers will tell you that stunning aerial views are a highlight of the sport, but also that some are better than others. Our location is not just convenient - it is also stunning.
Long Island has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the state of New York, Long Island Skydiving Center has the best view of them.
Just eight miles from the Hamptons. During your first skydive you can view the Atlantic coastline, Hampton beaches, and Fire Island from an exclusive vantage point. All under the expert charge of your tandem skydiving instructor.
The Benefit of Experience
Your first skydive is not any old sightseeing expedition, it's a fast paced and high adrenaline experience.
You are putting yourself in the hands of a stranger to make this one of the best moments of your life, and to ensure your safety throughout.
All our instructors are USPA rated tandem skydiving instructors who exceed the expected standards of USA skydiving instructors. Equipped with brand new modern skydiving gear, you are in excellent hands.
Managing our team of elite skydivers is the one and only Brian Erler, our center owner and a former professional skydiving videographer with a truly exceptional level of experience.
An Unforgettable Adventure
Your first skydive will stay with you for your whole life. Whether you just do the one or go on to do many, every moment remains unforgettable.
The feeling of boarding the plane, knowing you're not landing in it.
The sights and the smells of the climb to altitude.
The rush in the moment that door opens.
The exhilaration of freefall.
The happiness of touching down and knowing you have achieved what most haven't - human flight.
Skydiving is a rare and exceptional lifetime experience, so much so that some special people take the opportunity to pop the question to their love - combining two of life's most amazing moments into a fabulous engagement story.
