Planning Your Day
Prepare For Tandem Skydiving
The Play By Play
You’ve booked your jump, marked your calendar, and the countdown is officially on! Here’s what you need to do to get centered for an amazing day at Boston Skydive Center!
Not Just Along For the Ride
Tandem skydiving makes the highly technical act of flying accessible to most everyone – but just because you’re attached to a professional skydiver, doesn’t mean you’re only a passenger!
When you get to the dropzone, you’ll learn more about the role you will play during your tandem. In the meantime, make yourself a checklist of what to do (and not do) the day before and the day of your skydive in Rhode Island.
T Minus 1 Day
Do Your Reading …
… And Your Math
Eat as normal, staying clear of heavy or greasy food. Eating too little or too much can make you feel faint or sick.
Drink plenty of water, starting in the morning. Dehydration can make you feel unwell before or during your skydive.
Dress in comfortable, flexible clothing, like athletic gear, and lace-up shoes. Pull long hair back and remove jewelry.
Get to the dropzone at least 30 minutes ahead of your reservation time to get checked in. Don’t miss your flight!
Save with our Gotta Go Again rate – same day if space allows! Sky’s the limit on how many times you go again!
Get Video & Photos!
If you book your jump without a video or photo package, your last chance to opt-in for footage and stills is when you check in at the dropzone on jump day. It’ll cost you a little extra, but it is soooo worth it. Check out our Video & Photo Services page for more information.
