Is there an age limit to skydive?
16 years old is the legal minimum age to skydive in Australia. All minors need their parent or guardian’s written permission. There is not a maximum age limit to skydive but we reserve the right to refuse a skydive, based on weight and health to ensure the safety of our visitors and our staff. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to avoid disappointment on the day.
Is there a skydiving weight limit?
Due to safety reasons, the maximum weight to skydive is 115 kg. We weigh all customers at check-in. Charges apply:
- 95 – 99kg: $25
- 100 – 109kg: $50
- 110 – 115kg: $100
How dangerous is skydiving?
There are risks involved, but thanks to the advancements in technology, regulation and training, skydiving has become much safer over the last few decades. Safety devices like Automatic Activation Devices (AADs), will automatically trigger the deployment of the reserve parachute in the unlikely event that the instructor is not able to operate the equipment. We review all our aircraft and gear periodically, and all our instructors are highly experienced with thousands of skydives each, which ensures that your skydiving experience is as safe as possible.
How can I get photos and video of my skydive?
Our photo and video packages can be purchased as extras, either when booking your skydive or when you check-in the day of your skydive. Visit our skydiving bookings page for an up-to-date list of options and prices.
Is the beach landing included in my skydive?
Yes, all our skydives are 100% beach landing at no extra cost
How long will take to go skydiving?
It will often take around 1-2h. It is safer to allow for half a day activity as there may be weather or unforeseen circumstances out of our control.
Your booking time is for your check-in. When you arrive at Sunshine Coast Skydivers you will fill in some paperwork, and then you are assigned to a load or flight. The safety briefing and gear up with your instructor will take 10 min, followed by a 20 min flight to 14,000 feet.
Please ensure you do your check-in on time. If you have any issues please let us know in advance.
How many people go skydiving at the same time?
It depends on the size of the group and the aircraft we are operating on the day. If you want to skydive with your friends on the same flight we will do our best to accommodate your request, please let our staff know when you check-in.
What clothes to wear skydiving?
- Dress for the weather with comfortable casual clothes.
- At 14,000 feet it will be cooler than on the ground, bear that in mind. We can provide you with a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes if required.
- We will provide you with skydiving goggles. If you wear prescription glasses we have special oversized goggles.
- Footwear is important, enclosed shoes that won’t fall off are required, no flip-flops or open sandals.
Who can go skydiving ?
Almost any healthy person can skydive, even seniors over 70 years old. We reserve the right to refuse a skydive after our assessment based on age, weight and general health. This is due to safety reasons, to protect both our customers and staff. If unsure please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Can I cancel my skydiving booking?

Can I change the date and time of my skydive?
