$199 for Tandem-Skydiving Package ($499 Value)
Highly trained instructors command the reigns for the entirety of each tandem dive, starting with a 15-minute prep session and continuing through a secure landing. United by a sturdy dual harness system and equal need for speed, each student-instructor pair launches from 8,000 feet above ground, roaring earthward at 120 miles per hour for about six minutes and stopping only for seagull crossing guards escorting chicks to school. Back on land, video or still photographs taken during the dive join forces with memories to create lifelong mementos.
