Whether you live near Cape Town (or indeed anywhere else on the Garden Route or the whole Western Cape) or are visiting from another country, and you’re wondering how much it costs to go skydiving in South Africa, then read on.

Below is all the information you need to determine the cost of skydiving near Cape Town, what is included in the price, and how to get the best skydiving experience money can buy.

 

How Much Does It Cost To Go Skydiving In South Africa?

The short answer is that skydiving in South Africa costs roughly between R3000 – R6000 (or about $200 – $400) depending on location, altitude, and awesome add-ons.

Skydive Mossel Bay offers some of the best views in the world, the fastest skydiving aircraft in South Africa (to taxi you and your friends to 14,000 feet in record time), and a fantastic dropzone with top-notch instructors starting at a price of R3383.

 

What Is Included In The Cost of Your Tandem Skydive

For many people, tandem skydiving is the best way to experience skydiving for the first time. The requirements and training are very simple. The cost of your skydive includes all the equipment you’ll need and your instructor takes care of the necessary procedures, making the whole process super easy. You can just relax, enjoy the ride, and soak up the amazing view over Mossel Bay and South Africa’s stunning Garden Route.

Here at Skydive Mossel Bay, we are in a unique position to offer you additional options to enhance your skydiving experience. The question you are asking yourself might be “What does it cost to go skydiving near me?” but jumping with us should change that to “What should I choose to make my skydive the best experience ever?” 

Do you like the idea of landing on the beach? Whenever we choose, we can jump over Diaz Beach just a short distance from the dropzone and land right there on the sand. How about dropping into a local winery? We can do that too! Just let us know when you contact us and we can set it up. 

Are you down for some extra thrills? Every skydive includes a scenic canopy flight, but for a small additional cost, your instructor can make it doubly memorable and take you on a special extreme parachuting experience. We also have options for skydiving if you’re over the weight limit. Check out the add-on prices here and don’t forget, you can book all of these things directly online.  

 

Relive Your Skydiving Experience With Photos and Video

Even if you get hooked and go on to do many more skydives, having photos and video footage of your first jump is not something you should miss out on. Skydive Mossel Bay is a fully-equipped professional skydiving centre that’s able to offer you the option of your tandem instructor recording your jump with a Handycam.

But that’s not all.

We are also staffed with skydivers qualified to jump with you while carrying a professional video and photo setup in the ‘third eye’ or ‘outside camera’ position. The Handycam option – where your tandem instructor wears an action camera on their left side – is a good choice for capturing your reaction to freefall for the first time, but for a reasonable price, an additional camera flyer can provide you with an amazing panoramic record of your jump that you will treasure forever.     

 

The Cost of Learning To Skydive and Getting Your License

The cost of learning to skydive is not what many people would call cheap, but it is money well spent on a journey that will change your life forever. The more substantial costs are upfront when choosing to become a professional skydiver as the training used is designed to give you all the knowledge and practice you need to get going as quickly as possible. Once you complete one of our training programmes and find some suitable gear, the expenses from there mostly just involve the jump tickets you want to buy.

There are lots of things out there for which you could hand over money to get a thrill, but nothing compares to the sensation of throwing yourself out of a perfectly good airplane. Skydive Mossel Bay is up there with the most beautiful places in the world to experience your first skydive or progress towards getting a license of your own – and we have all the necessary facilities, equipment, and awesome staff to make jumping with us the perfect choice.
