For those who just want to taste of the sport, to tick it off the bucket list as it were there’s the tandem skydive. This involves just 15-20 minutes training in which your tandem master will explain how the jump is going to go and then you’re off. Tandems are usually done from 10,000ft, so you get to enjoy the 120km free-fall before deployment of the parachute and a 3-4 minute flight to the ground. Camera and video packages are available for tandem jumps and they can be done any weekend.
Tandem skydives cost €260
