Overview
Melbourne’s only beach skydive — skydiving Melbourne doesn’t get any more thrilling. Experience the ultimate adrenaline rush tandem skydiving over St Kilda, the closest skydiving center to Melbourne CBD. Exit the plane from up to 15,000 feet for 60 seconds of life-changing free-fall. Float under canopy for 5-7 minutes and enjoy the 360-degree views of Melbourne, curling around the stunning Port Phillip Bay taking in the sparkling blue ocean views. Skydive Melbourne dedicated and experienced skydiving crew knows exactly how to make your Melbourne tandem jump one to remember.
Highlights
  • Tandem skydive over Melbourne with the only outfitter with a beach landing
  • Spectacular aerial views of Melbourne, St. Kilda, and Port Phillip Bay
  • Free fall at over 125 miles (200 kilometers) per hour
  • Several departure times throughout the day to suit your travel schedule
What to Expect
Make your own way to the dive site in St. Kilda, just minutes from downtown Melbourne. On arrival, an experienced tandem instructor takes you through a safety briefing and gets you suited up in your flight gear. Take off along Melbourne’s South Coast and enjoy dramatic aerial views as you get yourself psyched up to jump. When it’s time, make your tandem jump from an altitude of 14,000 feet (4,270 meters) and feel the adrenaline rush during a free fall, as you reach speeds of over 125 miles (200 kilometers) per hour. After your parachute opens, relax and enjoy magnificent views over Melbourne, St. Kilda, and Port Philip Bay as you float back down to the ground. Top it all off with an unforgettable landing right on the beach.

Visiting Australia for the first time and we had scheduled a skydive for one of our last few days in the country. Due to the horrible fires ravaging Australia our day was cancelled because the smoke was so bad that the planes were being grounded. We thought about just

The biggest disappointment. A total let down. A complete bummer and waste of 900$ I had just arrived back from Byron Bay where I also had done a tandem jump, and I was completely in the headspace to go ahead and sign up to get my AFF License. Unfortunately, after my experience

Hey there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your valued feedback, we really appreciate it. We hope that you understand that customer safety is our priority - we’ll never rush through our process and risk providing a substandard or unsafe experience for our customers. Unfortunately we offer a very weather-dependent activity and sometimes despite the weather looking perfect on the ground, it can be very different at 15,000ft in the air. If you wish to discuss this further please email us on feedback@skydive.com.au Blue Skies, The Skydive Australia crew

Skydive has been in my bucket list for long time and it is my must-do item in Australia. I checked in at the skydive centre at 8:30am and the staff there helped to dress up. After watching the safety instruction video, we departed the centre and went to the airport at 10:00am.
