After listening to countless students talking about skydiving in Byron Bay, I finally got my chance to see what it was really like to jump out of a plane! I met up with Holly at the airfields and was lucky to not only have one of the best dive masters Stacey but also to be able to jump with Holly and her dad John. The company is very professional and safety conscious which made me feel more relaxed.
The only words to describe the feeling are surreal and amazing. If I was a Cambridge student I would probably say ‘awesome’.
Now I understand why so many of our students go skydiving. I can recommend it 100%. It really is a fantastic thing to do in Byron Bay as it gives you a totally different perspective of this great place. The lighthouse and bay look great at 14,000 feet.
Holly said that in the whale migration season (June – November) you can see whales breaching! So my advice is do an early morning jump, don’t have a hangover and follow John’s advice don’t blink when you jump out of the plane.
