Skydive Australia and Sea World Helicopters have launched an adrenaline-packed heli skydive experience, giving guests the opportunity to skydive directly onto Main Beach, Surfers Paradise in the heart of Australia’s Gold Coast.
Operating three days a week, Friday through Sunday, Skydive Surfers Paradise will be the only tandem heli skydiving experience operating regularly in Australia.
Three skydivers and their tandem masters will fly on an AS350 Squirrel Airbus Helicopter before exiting at 10,000’, experiencing an exhilarating free fall and then floating serenely under canopy for a further five minutes taking in the spectacular views of the Gold Coast before landing on the soft sands of Main Beach.
Skydive Australia is owned by leading Australian adventure company, Experience Co (EXP). They currently operate skydiving at 16 dropzones throughout Australia and New Zealand with this being the only heli experience on offer.
CEO, John O’Sullivan said “Anyone who has jumped out of a helicopter will tell you that this takes skydiving to the next level and what better place to offer it but on the spectacularly beautiful Gold Coast.
“We are delighted that the Gold Coast City Council has supported our vision to deliver this wonderful new tourism product for the region with our highly experienced partners, Sea World Helicopters at a time when we are all looking at how we can help get the tourism industry back on its feet again.”
Sea World Helicopters operates daily scenic and charter tours from the company’s main operations adjacent to the iconic theme park. CEO, John Orr-Campbell is excited to offer this new activity to their guests “We have been undergoing extensive planning for the past 12 months to get this opportunity off the ground so we couldn’t be happier to see it approved by Council giving another great reason for visitors to come to the Gold Coast.”
The experience can be booked online at http://skydive.com.au/surfers-paradise and will depart from Sea World Helicopters located adjacent to the theme park entrance. The cost for the tandem experience will be $570pp with a video package available for an additional $179.00.
