"Leap and the net will appear." > Zen Saying
Let’s take the leap and experience the thrill of skydiving over the spectacular North Shore of Oahu!
Skydiving Adventure Includes:
Pick-up, transportation to North Shore Dillingham Airfield and back to Waikiki.
Priority V.I.P. service so you are in and out sooner and not waiting for what can typically be a few hours.
Tandem skydive from 14,000ft or higher guaranteed providing 60+ seconds of "free-fall" time.
We go in the same plane and jump out with your group.
Beverages, snacks and lunch.
Memories of a lifetime.
*Please note that you must choose more adventures creating a "Bucket List" tour for us to guide you on your skydiving adventure. If you only want to skydive and nothing more then we can still make your appointment and send you directly there but you will need to arrange your own transportation to Dillingham Airfield.
Godspeed Adventures works exclusively with Pacific Skydiving Center; the number one skydive center in Hawaii with a perfect safety record. The tandem Instructor you will jump with is a highly experienced skydiver with thousands of jumps (their most experienced instructor has over 21,000 jumps!) And your Godspeed Adventures tour guide goes with you IN and OUT of the plane!
The skydive exit is from a brand new, state-of-the-art, $2mil “Sky-Van” that climbs to 14,000-15,000 feet in only 12 minutes! (This is the highest you can go without supplemental oxygen).
You will experience a 60+ second freefall while you enjoy the most spectacular view… This is truly the most amazing place to skydive in the world. Once you or your tandem instructor deploys your parachute you will enjoy a 5-minute ride down while enjoying breath-taking views of the entire North Shore. If all goes well, you should have a smooth and safe landing.
- You must be at least 18-years old or older to jump.
- No scuba within 24-hours of skydiving.
- Weight limit is 250lbs. (113kg) and there is a $10 supplement for each 10lbs. over 200lbs.
Frequently Asked Questions about Skydiving:
Q. Why would anyone jump from a perfectly good airplane?
Q. What should I wear?
A. Nothing. Skydivers have been known to wear nothing during their skydives, but you might want to wear shorts, sneakers and a T-shirt… or nothing… your call.
Q. Can “Ride Along” companions come along to watch us jump out from inside the plane?
A. Yes. A companion can go up with everyone in the plane but does not have to jump… although they will probably wished they had. They wear a parachute and will be given a short briefing before boarding the aircraft... on how to fly the plane in case the pilot decides to jump out with the rest of us. Note: Small extra fee for this option and is not always available, it is up to the pilot on duty at the time.
Q. Is skydiving safe?
A. No. Well, actually… YES! Skydiving is like any other extreme sport; there are inherent risks that require careful training and execution. Failure to follow that training can lead to serious injury or death. Skydiving is as safe as the individual(s) make it and can be as safe as or safer than any other extreme sport… However, may we remind you that you are on an Extreme Hawaii Tour and it’s because there are risks; that’s what makes it exciting and why we love this sport! Stop thinking about that and just jump!
Q. Can I jump by myself?
A. Sure, but not today. Your first and second jump must be tandem, in which you're harnessed to the front of an instructor. If you like what you experience then come back and get certified to jump by yourself very soon.
Q. What will the skydive feel like?
A. It’s the most fun you can have with your clothes on. The sensation of freefall is more like flying than falling, and is intensely exciting. The canopy flight is peaceful and relaxing…
Q. How fast do you fall?
A. The average human body falls approximately 125 miles per hour. If you are good looking you will fall much faster.
Q. What's the landing like?
A. Most landings are quite soft, with many people doing stand-up landings. Sometimes, especially on calm days, the forward speed of the parachute will provide you with a smooth sit-down sliding landing. If we are running behind on our tour schedule we may divert the landing portion of your skydive directly into the shark cage to make up for lost time. Let's try to stay on schedule.
Q. What happens if the parachute doesn't open?
A. Pray. If that doesn't work, pray harder! Although it is unlikely that your main parachute will fail to open properly, it does sometimes occur and this is a common question. According to federal law, every jumper must be equipped with a main and a reserve parachute. In addition, all equipment has an Automated Activation Device (AAD), which will automatically open the reserve parachute should the jumpers be unable to.
Q. Will you teach me to base-jump from my hotel room?
Enough questions.... LET'S JUMP!!!
