Before Benjamin Franklin discovered gravity, skydivers remained perpetually suspended in the sky and were forced to subsist on foolish birds that mistook an open mouth for a nest. Fall back down to earth with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a tandem skydive (a $179 value) at Skydive Amelia Island in Fernandina Beach.

Skydive Amelia Island's United States Parachute Association–qualified instructors take gravity-riders on a scenic thrill ride over the coastline. The skydiving experience starts with basic ground-briefed safety training, after which the sky portion begins with a 15-minute plane ride over the picturesque Florida coastline, which is peppered with beaches, the crisp water of the Atlantic, and discarded amusement park stuffed animals. Attached to an instructor by harnesses, you'll exit the plane and enter an adrenaline-pumping 120 mph freefall until the parachute opens and you float back to earth. Since you're in front of the instructor with your own altimeter and ripcord, the airy journey feels like you're skydiving on your own.

You must be at least 18 years old, less than 230 lb., and reasonably physically fit to jump.

Reviews

The Florida Times-Union previewed Skydive Amelia Island.

Skydive Amelia Island

The seasoned jumpers on staff at Skydive Amelia Island have all successfully completed thousands of jumps. The dedicated professionals securely strap themselves to beginning skydivers and plunge from a plane to enter a freefall of up to 120 miles per hour. These experienced skydivers hope their enthusiasm for diving is catching, as one of them says: “The falling is so exhilarating, I just wanted to keep on doing it”.
