Skydive in Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape

Skydiving in Plettenberg Bay

Live life to the full! Experience free-fall over one of the most scenic drop zones in the world. Start the experience with a short briefing. Then enjoy a 20 minute plane flight to 10,000 feet, over the Knysna forests and Plettenberg Bay coastline. Now the leisurely, scenic plane flight stops and the adrenaline starts to pump as you exit the plane with your Tandem Master and experience the rush of a 35 second free fall at 200KPH! Once the canopy opens, your instructor will glide you down for a safe landing.

 

There is nothing quite like stepping out of an aircraft that is just over 3kms high over the sea and then freefalling into the bay of Plettenberg Bay. If you would like to experience an out-of-bounds skydive and if the weather permits, you have to  do this skydive and then land at Central Beach. 

 

From a skydiving point of view, you can't get a better location: the scenery is completely mind-blowing. Just one added bonus is that Plett is home to hundreds of dolphins and is an active breeding ground for whales between May and October every year.

Briefing

 

After signup you will meet your Tandem Instructor. There will be a short briefing, then you will be kitted up. Your harness is fully adjustable and has four attachment points. That's it, you're ready to go! Sit back, relax and take in the view on a 20 minute flight to altitude, during which you can enjoy spectacular views of the Plettenberg Bay coastline and Robberg peninsular.

 

In season whales and dolphins can often be seen!

 

The Jump

 

Before reaching altitude your Tandem Instructor will connect you to his harness using the four attachment points. Exit the plane together and feel the unique rush of freefall at 200kph for 35 seconds, before the parachute opens.

 

The Flight

 

View the beautiful surroundings suspended under the parachute while your instructor steers you safely back to earth, or steer yourself if you want to have a go!  

 

Go home with a feeling of elation that lasts for days with a certificate and a DVD to show your loved ones how you willingly hurled yourself out of a plane!

FAQ'S

Beach Landing skydiving Plettenberg

When can I jump? 

We are open all year round, 7 days a week, sunrise till sunset. 

 

What about the Weather? 

We will only jump in safe conditions. Unsafe conditions would include strong winds and low clouds, we want you to enjoy your skydive!!

 

From what height do we jump? 

We jump from 10,000 feet which is a little over 3km!

 

Where do we land? 

We land at the Airstrip, just outside the Dropzone buildings, so your family can watch you land.

 

Can we land on the Beach? 

Yes this can be done if requested in advance. Please note however that it can only be confirmed on the day weather permitting. There is an additional charge.

 

How long is the free fall? 

You are in free fall for 35-40 seconds. Then the parachute opens at 4500ft and you glide under canopy back down to earth. This takes a 4 or 5 minutes.

 

Can I drink before I jump? 

No! We have a strict NO alcohol and drug use policy, your safety is important to us. (We also don't want you to hurl in the airplane!)

 

Is it safe? 

Skydiving is classed as a high risk sport and like with other extreme sports, there are risks involved. Our Parachute Systems are top of the line and maintained to the highest standards. Our Tandem Instructors are internationally qualified with thousands of skydives and are associate members of the Parachute Association of South Africa (PASA).

 

But what happens if the parachute doesn't open? 
This is very unusual, but if for any reason there is a problem with the parachute, there is a reserve parachute, so no worries there. All parachutes are equipped with an automatic opening device that opens the parachute, even if your instructor doesn't.

 

What shall I wear? 
Shorts or trousers and a T-shirt are fine, and a pair of shoes that won't fall off! So no flip flops, I'm afraid. We give you a very smart jumpsuit too!

 

Can I wear glasses? 
Yep, no problem, we give you special goggles that fit over your specs.

 

Contact lenses? 
No problem at all.

 

Can I take a camera? 
Yes, we give you a piece of cord so you can have it round your neck so you don't drop it!

 

What is the plane like? 
Our plane is a Cessna 182. It has room for 4 skydivers and the pilot.

 

How long do I need to allow? 
We generally suggest you allow around an hour per person jumping.

 

What is the minimum age? 
There is no minimum age, however the child must be big enough to be strapped into the harness safely, and we must have written consent from parents for anyone under the age of 18 years.

 

Is there a maximum age? 
Not at all! As long as the person is happy to jump, we will take them!

 

Is there a maximum weight? 
For safety reasons we have a weight limit of 100kg. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause, but again, your safety is important to us.

 

Are there restrictions for people with bad back or illnesses? 
It depends on the injury or illness. We would prefer you call us in advance to discuss this. If you have any doubt please ask your doctor's opinion before you book.

 

Where are you located? 
We operate from Plettenberg Bay Airport, which is just outside Plettenberg Bay town.

 

Do I need to Book? 
Yes. We get very busy so it is worth booking to avoid disappointment,
