Via road on the Lasseter Highway, departure from Ayers Rock Resort.

-If I book a skydive for a single, does it mean I am jumping on my own?
We only offer Tandem Skydiving, this means each passenger jump with a professional skydiving instructor. We will not let you jump alone if you are not a qualified and experienced skydiver.
Booking for a "single" means that you are booking for one person only to go skydiving with one tandem instructor.
Booking for a pair/couple, means that you are booking for 2 passengers at once, and therefore 2 tandem instructors.
Your harness will be hooked to your tandem instructor and he will be the one opening the parachute. You just need to relax and enjoy!

Please book prior to your arrival in Ayers Rock Resort to ensure availabilities. We recommend at least 2 weeks prior to preferred date.
