No, It is not safe for you or someone who is below us for you to take anything with you. No Exceptions!
For weekend reservations allow yourself to spend about 2 hours. We encourage jumping on weekdays. The time it takes for you to jump has a few variables such as weather, if we are busy that day, and when you signed in. Ideally a tandem jump can be completed in a couple hours. Please remember though, be prepared to spend more time.
There is no maximum age but you must be at least 18 years of age regardless of parental consent. There are no exceptions to this rule. A valid photo ID (drivers license, state ID, or passport) is required to sign up for class. If you do not have an ID you will not jump.
Whatever you come in is what you will jump in, dress for the weather, we jump in shorts and t-shirts during the warmer time of year and cooler times wear warmer clothes. Shoes should be something that tie or strap to your feet.
As with any sport, the better shape you are in the easier it will be and the more fun you’ll have. However, we’ve taken people with many different disabilities. We have some of the most experienced tandem masters here at Skydive South Padre Islands. If you have a special requirement, call us! We can make your dream of flight come true! If you have a special medical concern, please contact your doctor.
