Skydiving relies heavily on gravity, like corporate trust-building exercises and home-security systems made from banana peels. Harness the earth's obliging force with this Groupon.
$145 for a Tandem Skydive ($239 Value)
After about 30 minutes of training, a single passenger will make his or her jump strapped to an experienced, certified instructor. This Groupon does not include a mandatory $25 equipment-rental fee for the tandem harness and goggles. Passengers should wear comfortable clothing and no sandals or flip-flops, and they should remember that the temperature cools about 20 degrees at high altitudes.
From a perch on Long Island, airplanes cruise high above some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, including the sapphire waves of the Atlantic and the beaches of the Hamptons. But, though the views from the plane are pretty, the experience of soaring through the air above them is unforgettable. Just ask 516 Skydive’s team of experienced instructors. They specialize exclusively in tandem jumps, making skydiving accessible and approachable to all jumpers, regardless of experience level. The staff keeps them safe by adhering to the strict standards of the United States Parachute Association, which enforces rigorous regulations, safety guidelines, and Top Gun code names for instructors.
