Is there a weight requirement?
Yes. Jumpers must weigh less than 220lbs., exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis. Contact the office for more information.
Is there an age requirement?
There is no maximum age but you must be at least 18 years of age regardless of parental consent. There are no exceptions to this rule. A valid photo ID (drivers license, state ID, or passport) is required to sign up for class. If you do not have an ID you will not jump.
Is there a time requirement?
For weekend reservations allow yourself to spend the entire day. We encourage jumping on weekdays. Tandem classes last only one hour. After the class, the time it takes for you to jump has a few variables such as weather, if we are busy that day, and when you signed in. Ideally a tandem jump can be completed in half a day. Please remember though, be prepared to spend the entire day.
Are there any physical requirements?
As with any sport, the better shape you are in the easier it will be and the more fun you'll have. However, we've taken people with many different disabilities. We have some of the most experienced tandem masters here at Skydive South Padre Islands. If you have a special requirement, call us! We can make your dream of flight come true!
If you have a special medical concern, please contact your doctor.

We went skydiving today Frank was very awesome, super polite. We did a tandem dive with two great guys who did a fantastic job. I personally highly recommend this place to any one who wishes to skydive on South Padre Island Texas.
My dad and I did our first skydive today and we are both SO happy that we went with this company! Staff was amazing and the fly was easy breezy. Most fun we’ve ever had!
