Looking for a once in a lifetime experience? Skydiving NYC residents and visitors is what we do. We are the closest New York skydiving location you can get to (because skyscrapers don't make for easy landings), 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 though. Here's an overview of what makes us the best choice for this once in a lifetime experience.
Beautiful Long Island Location
All skydivers will tell you that stunning aerial views are a highlight of the sport. Some are better than others though. Our location is not just convenient - it is stunning.
Long Island has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the state of New York. And Long Island Skydiving Center has the best view of them. Check out our skydiving pictures and videos and see for yourself!
We're also only eight miles from the Hamptons. During your skydive you can observe the Atlantic coastline, Hampton beaches and Fire Island - all from an exclusive vantage point and 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 lifetime 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 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 entire life. Whether you just do the one jump, or go on to do many more - every moment remains unforgettable.
The feeling of boarding the plane... and knowing you're not landing in it.
The sights and the smells of the climb to altitude.
The rush 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 one single fabulous engagement story.
