So you want to make your first jump? Do you want to freefall at speeds up to 120mph? The Tandem Skydive is an excellent choice!

The Tandem Skydive program at Skydive Toronto Inc. allows you to get the full skydiving experience, all with the assurance of having an experienced instructor connected to you.

The program begins with approximately an hour and a half of ground preparation including: a skydive orientation video, registration, then a skydive rehearsal on one of our aircraft mock ups. Here you will be able to ask your instructor any questions concerning the proper techniques for exiting the aircraft, flying your body in freefall and controlling the parachute descent.

Next, you will get geared up in the equipment provided: a special skydive jumpsuit, para helmet and altimeter, and board the aircraft with your instructor. You will then climb up to jump altitude (10,500 to 12,500 feet), from where you will launch your skydive!

READY! SET! GO! Freefall for 30 to 45 seconds at speeds reaching 120 mph! Want to pull the ripcord? No problem! Just advise your instructor. After you or your instructor deploys your main canopy, you will experience a 5 minute panoramic canopy ride down into our landing field. And what a scenic view! All of Lake Simcoe, Barrie, the aerial view of Highway 400, and the dramatic skyline of Toronto!

Want to relive your adventure? Don’t forget to add the video and stills option to your skydive! They make one awesome profile picture! In addition, you will receive a first jump certificate, perfect for mounting.
