Skydive in Perth on Rottnest Island with Skydive Geronimo
Jumpsuit on? Harness tight? Briefing complete? CHECK!
Your Tandem Skydiving experience will begin with a 20 minute flight Rottnest Island, Perth. From altitude you will have amazing views of the turquoise waters of spectacular WA coastline and the cities beyond.
Then it’s time for the door to open, and ready… set… GO!
You and your Tandem Skydiving Instructor will take the leap out of a perfectly good airplane. The biggest rush comes during free fall where you and your Instructor will plummet toward the earth at 200km/hour. Feel the adrenalin pumping as you spread your wings and ‘do the Superman’.
8,000ft = 20 seconds free fall
10,000ft = 30 seconds free fall
14,000ft = 60 seconds free fall
15,000ft = 66 seconds free fall
The ultimate thrill comes when jumping from our 15,000 feet skydive, giving you over 1 minute in free fall.
At 5,000ft your Tandem Skydiving Instructor will deploy your main parachute, and the world below starts to slow down. Now it’s time for a 5 minute ride under the parachute, before a safe landing on the beach.*
To celebrate your jump, enjoy a complimentary beer or wine at a local beachside restaurant and bar, overlooking the beach.
This is the adrenalin rush you’ve been waiting for!
THE BEST BEACH SKYDIVING
EXPERIENCES IN PERTH
Land on the Beach
No WA Skydiving experience would be complete without views of the pristine Western Australian coast line, and with Skydive Geronimo, you can land on the actual beach,* before enjoying a complimentary beer or wine to celebrate your jump on the deck of a local beachside bar.
Friends and family can relax and enjoy all that Rottnest Island has to offer, before watching your safe and exciting landing on the sand.

* All skydiving is subject to weather conditions, however beach skydive landings are even more weather restricted. Your safe landing area will be determined on the day of the jump.
Video and Photo Packages
What makes Skydive Geronimo’s video and photo packages the best on the market? Simple.
We use the best and latest technology available and don’t turn the quality down to make the editing process faster. We shoot everything at the highest definition available, at the highest frame rate. We then edit using the latest in professional editing software to ensure none of that quality is lost in post production.
The result is, you’re walking away with full 1080p HD videos with super smooth slow motion.
Skydive Geronimo’s Free Fall Cameramen are trained photographers. So instead of throwing any old camera on any old skydivers head -our team are trained professionals.
Next, we have given our team the latest in professional photography equipment. Unlike others using $300 consumer level cameras, we are equipped with Canon’s latest professional digital SLR the 5D Mark 3. Couple that with the Canon’s 15mm fisheye lens and the results are remarkable.
You wouldn’t want anything less to capture your first skydive!
Learn to Skydive
NOTE: Busselton Skydive School is currently closed.
Can’t get enough? Want to jump with your mates, free fly, or even jump a wing suit? Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) is the place to start. Skydive Geronimo runs monthly training programs to teach you and your mates to jump solo.
Our AFF program is an internationally recognised course designed to teach you the theory and practice behind the sport of skydiving. Once qualified, you will be able to skydive completely on your own.
Don’t stop there! Further your qualifications and you will be able to skydive for fun at any Drop Zone in the world, compete in competitions, or make skydiving your career (earn doing something you love!)
Check out our Accelerated Free Fall course options below, to find a course that will suit your needs.
How does it work?
To learn to skydive, Skydive Geronimo offers two Accelerated Free Fall packages to choose from. Both options start with:
Day 1. Ground training. A full day of comprehensive training in readiness for your solo jump. This day is primarily classroom based, and your ground training will ensure you are fully prepared for your first skydive. After your theoretical training you are ready for your tandem assisted free fall. You will put everything you’ve learnt into practice.
Day 2. On your first solo jump you will be assisted by two Instructors, and they are there with you every step of the way. You will set out to achieve your stage goals, pull your own parachute at 4,500ft, and be guided by radio to fly your parachute and yourself to the landing area.
After you have completed your first jump, there are only a further nine stages to complete before you will be able to jump without the assistance of your Instructor. Each stage involves a 20 – 30 minute briefing prior to each of your jumps.
Once you have completed the 10 stages of the Accelerated Free Fall program, you are now on your way to achieving your ‘A’ license.
Option One – Accelerated Freefall Introductory Course
Complete stages TAF, 1,2 and 3 of the AFF solo skydiving program over a three day period.
This is an ideal package for people who want to get introduced to skydiving and experience the sport and excitement, without having to commit to the full 5 to 7 day course. Our 4 jump introductory package is completed by firstly the TAF (Tandem Assisted Free Fall) and then the AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) jumps.
This package includes a full day of ground training in our student specific training room, all equipment you will need to complete your jumps, and 3 AFF/TAF stages from 12,000ft. You will also receive certification of stages completed, parachute packing lessons, membership to the Australian Parachute Federation, and a purpose designed student logbook.
Option Two – Accelerated Free Fall 10 Stage Course
Complete the full 10 stages of the Accelerated Free Fall course over a 5 to 7 day period.
This package is ideal for your full introduction to the sport of skydiving, and works towards your ‘A’ license as a skydiver.
By completing the course in a short timeframe, you are creating the best learning environment possible, and you get the opportunity to learn with other people and learn from each other.
Your Accelerated Free Fall course will include a full day of instruction in our purpose built student room, your TAF jump and the stages 1 to 8 with jumps from 12,000 ft and stage 9 from 4,000ft and all equipment you will need to complete your jumps.
