Skydive Airlie Beach - Whitsundays
This is an adventurous way see see the Whitsundays from an aerial view, not for the faint hearted or people with an extreme fear of heights, but if you are not in that list, I would put this on your bucket list. For beginners, a tandem dive will give you a birds eye view of the Whitsundays.

The ultimate of ultimates, this is the most amazing, heart razing experience. This is Skydiving Airlie Beach.
Skydiving over the most unique and precious drop zones on earth, if you only try skydiving once, then you must experience here over the incredible Whitsunday Islands. This experience is not going to be for everyone, after all throwing yourself out of a plane is thought of, by some, as being a crazy thing to do. But have no fear, the crew are experienced jumpers with an unblemished safely record and countless hours of skydiving with 'clients' strapped in front of them. The team at Skydive Airlie Beach are the utmost example of professionals.
Based at the Whitsunday Airport at Shute Harbour, Skydive Airlie Beach is 5 minutes from the centre of the town, and with free local pickup, anyone over the age of 14 can jump, so why not! Pass over Conway National Park and the famous Whitsunday Islands, Airlie Beach and Whitehaven Beach. Of course, the Great Barrier Reef will also fly by before it's time to take the plunge, the doors open and you're off. This is when you will experience the wind in your hair, and the rest of your body for that matter. This is it, from this moment you can see the whole of the Whitsundays, and will continue to do so until you land. The higher you jump, the longer the free fall (that can be decided on the day or in advance). Free falling can last from 20 seconds to 55 seconds before you pull the cord and your parachute opens, then, it's an incredible glide down to earth for the rest of the 8,000 to 14,000 feet. This is when you can relax and enjoy the view, and with optional extras such as DVD's and photos from your 'experience', your entire drop can be relived for many years to come with your friends and family. Or who knows, you may love it so much you want to do it all over again.
The jump, the view, the thrill, that's what it's all about at Skydive Airlie Beach.
