What is Tandem Skydiving?

A Tandem Skydive is an excellent introduction into the sport of skydiving and is ideal for first-time jumpers, annual enthusiasts, or anyone looking to have a memorable experience.

When you make a Tandem jump with Skydive Oregon, you and your fully licensed Tandem Instructor will share a parachute system designed for two people. Harnessed to your instructor, you will exit the aircraft at an altitude of 14,500 feet (that’s higher than the top of Mt. Hood) and freefall at 120 mph for nearly one minute before opening the parachute. 

Following your freefall, you will enjoy a 5-7 minute parachute ride, taking in the spectacular sights of the Willamette Valley and surrounding Cascade Mountains, while descending gently to the landing area.
