What will you find in Cairns, Australia?

Cairns, a large city in the breath-taking Tropical North Coast, is the perfect place to take the big leap. After all, the area is a wonderland of natural features. For example, as you and your tandem partner fly through the air, you’ll be privileged to view the Great Barrier Reef. It’s the largest coral reef system in the entire world. It’s no wonder, then, that it was named a World Heritage Site in the early-1980s.

This area is home to not just one, but two World Heritage Sites. In addition to the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll see the spectacular Wet Tropics of Queensland, named a World Heritage Site in the late-1980s. The Wet Tropics include tropical forests and beautifully-rugged terrain. There’s no better way to experience the overwhelming vastness of this unbelievably gorgeous area than from the sky! And there are few men’s gifts as enjoyable as the great outdoors.

What is included in our Cairns Tandem Skydive men’s gift?

Whether you live near Cairns, are visiting for vacation, or simply looking to take a dive, our Cairns Tandem Skydive package has everything you need to make the experience unforgettable. You’ll begin your amazing trip with a 20-minute flight around Cairns, allowing you time to absorb the splendid scenery.

Your pilot will then fly to 14,000-feet where you and your tandem partner will exit the plane. After hurdling through the air at up to 220km/hr, your parachute will deploy, giving you plenty of time to enjoy all the beauty that Cairns has to offer. And if you’re worried about forgetting every heart-pounding second of this incredible experience, know that your jump will be filmed using a HandiCam.
