Skydiving is the one item that features on almost every bucket list. And Skydiving specifically in Cape Town's Winelands, is without a doubt one of the most spectacular settings in the world with views of the Winelands, Cape fold Mountains and magnificent countryside.
There’s no better way to experience Cape Town than in freefall. Go on - take the plunge!
A 60-minute drive northeast of Cape Town, is all it takes for you to be whisked from the Cape Town city centre to a drop zone that boasts one of the best views in the world from altitude. To do tandem sky diving is one of the “must do” things while visiting in Cape Town. The plane ride to altitude 9000 ft above the ground is breath taking.
Areas to be viewed:
The jump zone is situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, nestled in the scenic farmlands of Wellington – and less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town’s CBD. We are surrounded by some of the best wine farms and attractions in the Cape so please ask us for any suggestions as to where you can stay, eat or play.
On arrival, we will show you around, get the paperwork and weighing done, plus offer you tea or coffee before getting you acquainted to what will happen leading up to your skydive. Remember that safety is first and therefore skydiving is weather and logistics dependent, so please allow enough time in your day for delays. We are blessed to be in such a beautiful area of the Cape and have many restaurants and attractions nearby should the delay be a long one.
One of our tandem instructors will give you a full briefing on what to expect, and what you’ll need to be aware of in free fall, under canopy and on landing. We want to make sure that all your questions are answered, so this is the time to clarify any thoughts or questions you may have. Our aim is that you enjoy every moment of your skydive. Please remember that we have limitations including weight and height and if you have any medical questions or concerns it is best to ask your doctor prior to arrival.
We pride ourselves on having world-class, up to date equipment that is best suited for the area we operate in.
Tandem skydiving involves the use of a main parachute and a specially packed reserve parachute should anything go awry with the main chute (very, very rare). We have a X point harness that you will wear and be attached to our tandem instructor with. You will also be given goggles (which can fit over spectacles) for the free fall. The beauty of a tandem skydive is that there is nothing you need to do – other than listen to your tandem instructor and enjoy the ride!
You will board our Cessna 206 which has been specifically refurbished for skydiving including a roller door that allows for great views on the way up. The plane climbs Northwards and when you get to 9000ft you and your tandem instructor will move towards the door, then exit the aircraft at a specific point depending on the current conditions. The views across the winelands are beautiful and everyone comments on how incredible the plane ride is.
Falling through the sky at speeds of up to 200km/h will be one of the most exhilarating things you will ever do in your life! Remember to smile all the way. Your tandem instructor will then deploy the parachute and you will slow down and start your gradual descent.
Now it’s time to listen to your tandem instructor, depending on the weather conditions you will either slide into a seated position, or your tandem instructor will land on their feet and then only ask you to stand. Either way, remember to keep your legs up so that you can land safely and softly!
VIDEOS AND PICTURES:
Depending on the camera package you have chosen, you will either receive an HD video and pictures taken by your tandem instructor with a specially rigged camera, or if you have opted for the outside camera option then you will get an amazing video of your whole experienced filmed by one of our specially trained camera staff flying alongside you the whole way. These will be emailed to you on the same day as the jump and most of the time you will be able to watch them on site before you leave!
