What To Expect
You will be properly fitted into one of our new tandem passenger harnesses and participate in a training session so you know exactly how to help the instructor with the skydive.
After you are ready to go, you and the instructor will meet the aircraft for a scenic 20 minute ride around the Cayuga/Niagara region. You and your instructor will prepare and jump securely attached together at the perfect moment over top of the drop zone. You and your highly qualified instructor will experience freefall
from above 10,000 feet with speed exceeding 120 mph. Once under a specially designed Icarus tandem parachute you and your instructor will then take a 5 minute ride back to the landing area and set down safely where your friends and family will be steps away to greet your safe return.
- Go on! Be brave! There is nothing like the feeling of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane.

Frequently Asked Questions
The minimum age to make a tandem skydive is 14. For anyone under the age of majority (18), a parental consent form will need to be signed and you will NEED your parent or guardian present. Upon booking please let us know if there are any junior jumpers under the age of 18.
Yes. The maximum combined weight restriction for you AND your tandem instructor is 450 lbs. There are no weight minimums, but you will need to be big enough to fit in the harness.
Not necessarily. MAKE SURE you look at the weather for Cayuga, ON and not for your area. The weather can be very different depending on your location. When in doubt, please call!
It would be reasonable to jump in a comfortable pair of shorts and a tee-shirt during the hot summer months. During the colder season a pair of athletic pants and a sweatshirt is ideal. For every 1000 feet of altitude the temperature drops 2 degrees Celsius. Bring an extra layer of clothing just in case.
Please arrive 15-20 minutes before your booking. This helps the day run smoothly.
You should expect the whole process to take between 2 and 3 hours, especially on weekends.
It is very likely that your tandem instructor will be male. However, we do have some female tandem instructors that occasionally work with us. If your religion or some other circumstance will not allow you to jump with a person of the opposite sex, please give us a call or send us a message and we will do what we can to accommodate you.
No problem. We have goggles to fit people with contact lenses and glasses.
Each SIGMA tandem parachute system is equipped with two parachutes; a main and a reserve. 99.9% of the time your main parachute will open correctly, thanks to years of research and development.
However, once and a while parachutes fail to open correctly. In this case your instructor will release the main parachute and deploy the reserve parachute. In the unlikely scenario you did have a main parachute malfunction you probably wouldn’t even know it happened.
Bottom line, hundreds of thousands of hours have gone into parachute design and openings. We here at Skydive Cayuga will do everything in our power to assure a safe and comfortable landing.
Step 1 – It is important that you give Skydive Cayuga a current email address. We will use this email to send you a link to your video and photos.
Step 2 – Click on your link and download your footage to your favorite device.
Step 3 – Be sure to download all videos and photos to your computer as we will only keep your files for 30-60 days.
We know how badly you want to see your video and photos. You will have them sometime during the week after your jump if you jumped on the weekend. Usually you will have them by Wednesday after your jump. However, occasionally there are minor delays with production or the email we have on file for you has been incorrectly entered. We usually have a huge cue of videos to edit Monday mornings as well when we get into the office so sometimes it take us a bit to sort though the 15,000 photos and videos, edit them, and get them out to you.
The first thing you should do if you haven’t received your video and photos is check your junk mail. If you jumped on the weekend and it is later in the week after your jump and you still haven’t received a link, please press the button below and email us as there might have been an issue with your email address.
Please note that our video editing team works normal business hours from Monday to Friday.
