What You'll Get
America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with this extreme Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $139 for a tandem skydive jump for one (a $249 value)
- $259 for a tandem skydive jump for two (a $498 value)
Professional skydivers provide on-the-ground instruction before carting students skyward in a Pilatus Porter airplane. Once the aircraft exceeds 2 miles in altitude, the instructors strap themselves together with their students and leap out the door. During the free fall, the pair reach speeds of 120 miles per hour before deploying the chute and enjoying a gentle five minute ride back to earth. Beneath their feet, the duo enjoy stunning aerial views of Myrtle Beach and its surrounding seas.

About Skydive Myrtle Beach
When Skydive Myrtle Beach’s instructors say that their careers are plummeting, they aren’t being pessimistic about their employment prospects—they’re telling the literal truth. Many of these professional plungers boast a background in the military and Special Operations, putting their extensive airborne experience to work helping civilians learn the art and thrill of free falling. They provide one-on-one instruction on the ground for new skydivers before loading them into a Pilatus Porter airplane for a 15-minute ride to altitude. At a height of a little more than 2 miles, they strap onto their students and execute a high-altitude jump, reaching speeds of 120 miles per hour before deploying the chutes. The resulting drift to earth lasts about five minutes, allowing students the perfect opportunity to capture photos of Myrtle Beach or very incautious birds.
