Tandem Skydive

25/01/2024 @ Date and time to suit you
Tandem Skydive

Looking to do something crazy to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care? Why not take on a tandem skydive from 10,000ft!

Situated on the beautiful cliffs of Perranporth, the Cornish Parachute Club is the most picturesque skydive centre in the UK for you to tick something off your bucket list, on a date to suit you!

What’s the deal?

After a full safety briefing on the ground, you’ll be expertly fitted into your harness and meet your tandem skydive partner.  It’s then off to the plane, then you’ll climb to 10,000ft where you’ll be able to see most of Cornwall before diving at 120mph towards the Atlantic ocean. After covering the first mile in a breath-taking 30 seconds, the parachute will open and the second mile will take a leisurely 10 minutes, so you have time to take in the spectacular view!

You can also choose the date you want to do your tandem skydive, perfect if there is a special reason behind why you want to do this for Cornwall Hospice Care. The Cornish Parachute Club run tandem skydives every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from March to November.

What Happens Next?

In just a few simple steps you can be on your way to the ultimate skydive experience.
