About Tandem Skydiving

It doesn't matter if it's for a first-timer or a regular skydiver, tandem skydiving is the most convenient and relevant method for the experience of this thrilling activity. In tandem skydiving, the students are connected to the professional instructor with the help of a harness, which gives the instructor complete control over the student. In spite of the necessary training, the students are guided by the instructor the whole time right from exiting the aeroplane to piloting and deploying the parachute. 

The jump is usually made from a four-seating single-engine light aeroplane, generally a Cessna 182 Skylane, which is taken up to a minimum height of 10000 feet, sometimes even 15000 depending on the location. It takes nearly half an hour to reach that height after take-off to achieve the optimal altitude.

Once the leap is made, you can experience the enthralling free-falling through the sky at a speed of 200 kilometres per hour within less than a minute. After that, the instructor deploys the parachute, and it is followed by a 5-minute glide downwards.

The best thing about skydiving in Mauritius is the beautiful 360 degrees panoramic view of the stunning coastal scenery of Mauritius, the lush green mountains complemented by the sparkling blue ocean takes the breath away. After enjoying the serene sights, the instructor safely lands both of them on the drop zone.
