Tandem Skydiving

Jump with an Experienced Instructor

the perfect choice for your First Jump

Thinking about making your first skydive? You’ve come to the right place! Skydive San Marcos is the #1 choice for tandem skydiving Austin and San Antonio. Established in 1984, Skydive San Marcos has been helping guests just like you experience the thrill of skydiving for more than 30 years!

For your first time skydive, we recommend making a tandem jump. Tandem skydiving is the quickest, easiest, and safest way to make your first skydive and it requires no previous skydiving experience and minimal training.

What Is Tandem Skydiving?

A Tandem skydive is a fun-filled experience that you will never forget! During a tandem jump, the student is harnessed to a skydiving instructor who supports and guides them throughout the jump. Unlike the elaborate training required for students wishing to jump solo, tandem students can be trained and ready to jump in less than an hour!

At Skydive San Marcos, your tandem skydiving experience will begin with a brief group training session. Following group training, we’ll pair you up with one of our expert tandem instructors for a more detailed, one-on-one training session. Your tandem instructor will walk you through a step-by-step description of your skydive and help you ‘gear up’ for your jump. Once you’re geared up, you’ll board the aircraft with your instructor and begin your climb to altitude in our fast, turbine aircraft. The ride to altitude will take about 15-20 minutes and you’ll be able to take in beautiful views of Texas Hill Country. Once you reach the correct altitude, you’ll exit the aircraft, securely harnessed to your instructor, and experience approximately 50 seconds of freefall. At the appropriate time, your instructor will deploy the parachute and you’ll enjoy a peaceful, 3-4 minute canopy ride that will carry you to a soft landing back at the dropzone.
