Owner description: Welcome to Go Skydive the UK’s specialist Tandem Skydiving centre. If you’ve never skydived before – you’ve come to the right place. Our team of professional skydive instructors and support staff are specially trained to work with first-time tandem skydivers and our specialist equipment is selected for tandem skydiving only. We are regulated by the British Parachute Association adhering to their strict regulations as well as our own Go Skydive Standards of Excellence. So what's tandem skydiving like? Imagine an experience that puts your senses into overdrive. One that has your heart racing, the adrenaline pumping. And that leaves you so ecstatic you want to scream out loud. A tandem skydive is the ultimate adrenaline rush. When you jump out of a plane at 10-15,000 feet, you’re putting your trust in a total stranger. Literally throwing yourself into the unknown. Freefalling at 120mph is an experience like nothing on earth. Beyond exhilarating, it defies description. The only way to understand it is to do it. So, ready for the thrill of your life? Let’s do this!

“An Amazing Experience .... Wow!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We arrived at 12 as asked and then went into the training session about 30 minutes later after completing the necessary paperwork. We then had to wait until we were called to get into our skydiving gear and then it was just a case of waiting until the weather improved for us to fly. We eventually were loaded onto the plane (nervous and excited) at about 4 pm ... and the experience started. The flight up to 10,000 feet was enjoyable in itself ... the skydivers all being very chatty trying to make you relax! When we reached the desired height ... it was time to jump .... and within two minutes we were all out. Being the last to jump in our plane ... it was an experience just to watch everyone else go out ... and amazing when it was my turn. Before you knew it you were free falling and the experience had begun. We had trouble with our shute so the reserve was put into place and Lee my instructor handled the situation very well ... i didnt even know there was a problem until we shot up again with the reserve shute. The views are amazing and definitely a fab experience .. so much so that I want to do it all over again! The downside is the waiting around and the cost involved.

“Bucket list tick off”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

It has been on my bucket list for many years and I have always made an excuse not to do it. went there 25th Aug for 08:00 and due to cloud cover did not jump until ~ 16:15. It was a fantastic experience and well worth the 7 hours wait time. For those of you who are waiting for the best time, go and do it, the were very professional, everything was as a minimum double checked. The only bad point, it was over way to quick!!!!!

“Fabulous experience”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

It was touch and go weatherwise if any skydiving would take place as it was extremely cloudy. That aside, we were made welcome, the training session was very well presented by a young irish gentleman.
The only slight down side was the hanging around not knowing ( but this was due to the weather not the organisation)
The onsite cafe was average in quality of food but very expensive.
Our jump partner ws a Red Devil, and he made sure the experience was one never to be forgotten ( for the right reasons).
This is certainly an experience to be repeated, and will certainly be recommending to friends and family.

“Whoooooooaaaa!!!!!”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

When you fall, you just keep falling, and feel that falling feeling constantly, it's a bit like being in love, but SICKER! Skydive Southcoast do this so well, such a good set up, right next to the cafe serving perfectly good food and drinks and right next to the airfield so you can watch what's going on. Do it. You must!
