Activity description

Looking to add some spice to your relaxing holidays in Gran Canaria? Skydiving is what you should do. Jumping over Maspalomas is guaranteed to become the highlight of your trip!

Tandem skydiving is one of the most popular forms of skydiving and Skydive Gran Canaria has perfomed over 9,400 jumps since 1977, so they know what they're doing. One of the reasons why tandem paragliding is so popular is that almost anyone in good health and with the courage to do so can do it, since it doesn't require any special training.

Skydive Gran Canaria is located just 15 min. away from the centre of Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles. You can easily reach the drop zone by car, taxi or bus!

From the moment you step into the skydive center, you'll know you are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. The team will welcome you and teach you everything you need to know before facing the challenge. After a short training, you'll be ready to experience skydiving, a sport that those who have done it before believe everyone should try. 

Then you'll step into the airplane and enjoy a flight up to 3,000 to 4,000 meters (depending on weather conditions). By then, your harness will be strapped to your instructor's. At the desired altitude, you'll get the signal and prepare for the jump. The door will slide open, you'll tight your goggles as your instructor sits you with your legs hanging from the plane. Then you'll jump.

A 45-second freefall that will seem like floating on a gigantic air cushion will get your heart pumping and it will feel like centuries. To break the fall, your tandem instructor will open the canopy and your fall will become a gentle glide down back to earth. The amazing deep blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the volcanic landscapes of Gran Canaria will take your breath away.

The best part is you'll get to relive the experience whenever you want to since you'll have an action camera recording the whole experience. Do you want proof of your jump? You got it.
