In today’s world, it’s easy to get caught up in the monotony of everyday life. Same, same, week after week; rinse, repeat. But who says it has to be that way?! When you’re in one of the most romantic cities in the US, there are myriad opportunities to switch things up and take your partner to do something daring, exciting, and thrilling … like, COUPLE SKYDIVING!
Long Island Skydiving Center is located just 50 miles from New York City – close enough to be super convenient, and far enough away to offer breathtaking views of the Sound, the Hamptons, and Fire Island. Show your significant other that you are not just another “nothing to write home about” lackluster and conventional date. You’re YOU, and you’re awesome! You are willing to take a risk and, more importantly, you’re willing to live boldly with your special person. After all, love is meant to be an adventure, right?! Whether this is your first date, or you’re looking to seal the deal and make it “official”, skydiving is top of the list when it comes to fun couple activities in NYC!
CAN COUPLES SKYDIVE TOGETHER?
Your first thoughts might be, “Is this even possible? Can couples skydive together?” and we are here to tell you YES! Couples that skydive together, stay together. There are skydiving couples all over the world, because taking a leap of faith with the person you trust most in this world forms a bond like no other. While licensed skydivers freefall, like together-together, though, first time tandem skydivers are more “together.” Here, we’ll explain …
CAN FIRST TIME SKYDIVERS JUMP TOGETHER?
For safety reasons, tandem skydivers don’t exit the plane at the exact same time – but you’ll be able to do everything immediately before and after your jump together. You’ll go through ground school together, suit up at the same time, and head to altitude on the same airplane load. When it comes time to exit the aircraft, you will jump out of the plane one at a time with your own tandem instructor. (Who’s going first! Will it be an easy decision or will you have to rock, paper, scissors?)
After your instructor deploys the parachute and you’re riding the canopy back down to the ground, you might be able to spot your significant other soaring through the sky. Give your best mating call! Once your instructor lands the parachute, you and your partner will be reunited. And let me tell you, there is nothing like that skydiving afterglow that brings couples closer together. There is something about accomplishing an out-of-this-world experience that strengthens your connection, and the sense of achievement and exhilaration that follows will have you straight-up gleaming with love!
READY TO POP THE QUESTION?
Looking to take your relationship to the next level? What better way to say “Will You Marry Me?” than with a skydiving proposal?! Picture it: your favorite human prepares to land after an epic skydiving experience, and then they register that oh-so-important question on a huge banner, stretched across the landing area … and then see a big old grin stretched across your sweet face!!! SWOON!
Wait … too much attention for your partner? No worries, there are other ways to pull off a skydiving proposal. You can pop the question on the plane as you head up to altitude, or you can wait until just before you take the leap (pun intended). Whichever way you do it, the story of how you came to be engaged will be one you will be telling for a lifetime!
