$189 for a Tandem or Solo Jump for One (Up to $299 Value)
Certified instructors lead first-timers through a tandem or solo skydiving jump. Tandem jumps begin with 30 minutes of instruction on the ground, followed by a 20-minute plane ride and accompanying jump. In tandem jumps, the instructor and student are attached at the shoulders and hips with a special harness and enjoy 35–50 seconds of freefall. After five hours of ground school, solo jumpers leap from a plane at 3,500 feet. Upon leaving the airplane, the skydiver's parachute opening is initiated by an instructor, who then provides flight and landing instructions through a one-way radio.
Niagara Skydive Centre
In June 2001, Tim Grech gave up his corporate job to build a skydiving centre on 347 acres of pristine property. Tim and his team of CSPA-certified instructors introduce amateurs to the sky through guided-tandem or assisted-solo jumps and shepherd experienced jumpers through the progressive freefall. The bustling skydive centre boasts scenic views of Grand River, along with free camp sites with fire pits and communal barbecues for roasting freshly plucked clouds on a stick.
