Know Before You Go Skydiving in Cairns
Here are a few key points to keep in mind before you go skydiving in Cairns.
What to Wear
What to Eat
Best Time to Go
Skydiving in Cairns is suitable for individuals over the age of 12 years. Jumpers between the ages of 12 and 17 years will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Instructors may or may not allow guests weighing more than 110 kg to skydive. A tandem master will decide this and a Safety Officer will authorize it. If the guest weighs more than 95 kilograms, there will be a small surcharge to pay.
Pregnant women and those with pre-existing conditions like epilepsy, heart disease, etc., must consult with their doctor before skydiving.
Do not go skydiving if you have gone scuba diving 24 hours earlier.
Wear athletic, comfortable clothing like trousers or shorts with casual t-shirts. Wear sneakers and closed-toe shoes. It’s best to avoid sandals, heels, or slippers, as well as loose clothing, jewelry or accessories. Please note that you will not be provided with any warm clothing by Skydive Cairns, so carry gloves and a jacket during winters.
Have a light, healthy meal like a sandwich or a smoothie. Avoid heavy meals or empty stomachs before your skydive.
In the eight hours leading up to your skydive, you must not have taken any drugs or alcohol as it may interfere with the safety of the activity.
In Cairns, the months of December through February are suitable for outdoor activities. The weather is warm and the skies are blue, making for perfect skydiving conditions. However, since Cairns is in North Queensland, summers can get a little uncomfortable. You may opt to go in November or March rather than the summer.
