Long Island Skydiving Center
The bird's eye views of the Atlantic coastline, the Hamptons, and Fire Island are compelling enough, but that's only the beginning for visitors to Long Island Skydiving Center, which has enabled tens of thousands of jumps during more than a decade in business. After ascending thousands of feet, each student is securely attached to a highly trained instructor of the United States Parachute Association before leaping out of a plane and free falling at speeds up to 120 miles per hour. Then the parachute deploys, and jumpers enjoy a picturesque descent back to earth. Long Island Skydiving Center also offers video and photography services for an additional fee, which means you can share your skydive experience with friends and family and taunt your least favorite flightless bird for years to come.
