Skydiving is exhilarating and can be performed any time of day, unlike sky swimming, which you should only perform 30 minutes after eating a cloud. Sample some aerial exercise with this Groupon.
$299 for a Tandem Skydive Jump for Two (Up to $450 Value)
Guests begin with a general instructional overview of skydiving, during which instructors teach freefall techniques, body positioning during landing, and how to safely exit the aircraft. Passengers then take a 20-minute flight over Moab on their way up to 10,000 feet. Jumpers are attached via a harness to a certified instructor, who controls all parachutes. After leaping from the plane, jumpers experience more than 30 seconds of free fall and five to seven minutes of canopy flight after the instructor yanks the chute. On the ground, jumpers will receive a certificate to commemorate their first jump as well as coupons toward the purchase of a t-shirt or food.
Though Skydive Moab sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
High above the red rock canyon country of southeastern Utah, skydivers fly through the air as their bodies approach terminal velocity. Wind rushes through their hair before a cord is yanked and their searing descent slows into a gentle float.
At Skydive Moab, for over 12 years, novices paired with certified instructors as well as experienced skydivers pilot the skies above Moab’s Arches and Canyonland parks. The veteran skydiving outfit boasts more than 30,000 jumps and they supervise tandem flights, initial solo jumps, and certification programs in accelerated freefall. Before dives, customers ride up into the wild blue yonder aboard a Cessna 182, taking in the scenery below, which is composed of craggy, red rock canyons and the juncture where the Colorado and Green rivers merge to create the biggest natural bubble bath in the state.
