Tandem Skydiving: What's Included for the First Jump

Tandem Skydiving: What's Included for the First Jump

Published: December 20, 2019

If you're thinking about skydiving or if you've already booked with us on a whim, you may be wondering what all is included with your first tandem skydive cost. Your first skydive will likely be an adventure unlike anything else and will leave you breathless. Because of this, we recommend tandem skydiving as the best choice for your first time and it just so happens to be our specialty! The beauty of tandem skydiving is that it does not require first time skydivers to know much about skydiving - you just get to enjoy the ride! We are here to help explain what you can expect so the only unknown will be the thrill of freefall and the quiet calm of the canopy flight.


Upon arrival, you'll meet our enthusiastic manifest crew who is dedicated to delivering an amazing experience from the time you book with us to the time you leave with your eyes turned skyward. They will direct you to a short training that is included with your tandem skydive, where you'll watch a quick video to learn about the process of making a skydive and teach correct body position for freefall. After training, your visit will include being introduced to one of our passionate instructors who are rated by USPA for tandem skydiving. It takes a lot of hard work (not to mention a minimum of 500 skydives) to become a tandem instructor so you can trust that our instructors really do love taking people on their first skydive. Our instructors are respected in the industry as being the most experienced skydivers in the world and have been offering first time skydives in Long Island and NYC metro for over a decade. Your instructor will help get you into our brand new, most technologically advanced gear that's included with and necessary for your skydive. Because we place such importance on having the best gear possible, you don't have to worry about anything and can instead focus on enjoying the most incredible experience of your life.

Ride to Altitude - Long Island Skydiving


After you've watched the training video, met with your instructor and put your gear on, it's off to the plane where you'll begin the thrill of a lifetime! Included with your first tandem skydive is a bird's eye view of the most stunning coastline on the East Coast. From the airplane door, the world below looks like a topographical map or a pretty painting but you'll actually be overlooking the Atlantic Coastline, Hampton Beaches and Fire Island. We are ranked as one of the most scenic places to skydive in the USA and the views here are nothing less than breathtaking!


Once you have leapt from our airplane, soared through the skies in freefall and floated back down to earth under a parachute, you'll be presented with a certificate of your first skydive. Why? Because your first tandem skydive is a big deal and we want you to be able to commemorate the experience of a lifetime for years to come!
