You can find Skydive Barnstable by heading to the Cape Cod Airfield and looking straight up. Specializing in first-time adrenaline rushes, the company's experienced USPA-certified instructors perform tandem jumps with their eager students, leaping from a height of roughly two miles. After a short ground-training, both the jumper and instructor climb aboard the aircraft as friends, family, and crowds of airport-enthusiasts gather in the spectator's area. The plane climbs toward the clouds, revealing a stunning view of the Providence and Boston skylines and Cape Cod. After reaching jump altitude, the conjoined pair leap from the aircraft and freefall for 60 seconds at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour, before the parachute opens for a gentle, 5-7 minute coast back to solid ground. Optional video and photography services are available so that you can record and share your jump.
