My first time sky diving and I couldn’t have imagined a better company to do it with. Robert and Dre were professional, fun and exactly what we need to calm the nerves. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Thanks Team BigWave.

What a great experience! Rob at Bigwave was terrific. Any nerves that I had prior to the jump were quickly eliminated after meeting him. The whole experience was a joy from beginning to end, and you simply cannot beat the views of the South Coast from above. Thanks for a great day Rob.

What an absolute amazing experience for both myself & my 2 kids Maddi & Noah. Bucket list stuff. Bigwave Skydive made our experience something that we will never forget. 10/10 across the board these guys knew how to keep us calm & make us laugh when all we wanted to do was scream! The panoramic views over the Shellharbour coastline where nothing more than insane. I can not fault any part of our experience from customer service, professionalism, safety and just being able to give us an unforgettable highly emotional experience.Thank you Bigwave Skydive. Amazing!Simon, Maddi & Noah

We had an amazing time with the Bigwave skydive teamMy dad and I spontaneously booked the activity just a day ahead but thanks to Rob and his colleagues everything worked out perfectly.We enjoyed the easy and uncomplicated communication over whatsapp, sms and phone calls.When we arrived at the train station, we got picked up with the van and then headed straight to the plane that took us up in the sky.The instructions went down in less then 5 minutes so there was no time for unnecessary waiting.Before the jump we got to enjoy the most beautiful view you could imagine.The jump itself was probably the coolest and most exciting thing I did so far.On the way back I already got the chance to take some peeks in the videomaterial and even received a few photos to share with my loved ones straight away.Actually the jump was planned for yesterday but unfortunately the weather conditions changed and because of safety reasons we weren’t able to do the jump in the first place.Anyways the skydive team made the best out of the situation and not only rescheduled our jump for the very next day, but also offered us to give us a ride to cool places nearby, so we got to spend a lovely day in Shellharbour.All in all I can warmly recommend this company and wish you an as amazing skydive as the one we got to experience.Big thank you to the great Team 🙂

Rob and the team at Bigwave Skydive were incredible! They were very accomodating and knowledgeable prior to our jump, also always there to calm the nerves and have a bit of a laugh. We couldn’t have asked for better instructors to do our first ever jump with! The views were beautiful, such an amazing experience, we couldn’t be more thankful. Thanks Rob! We’ll 100% be back soon!

A skydiving video is a video made of your jump that you can keep to remember your experience by for years to come. A skydiving video is captured in two ways, either using a handcam, or by a freefall camera person (outside video).

Handcam is the name for the small camera our tandem skydiving instructors wear on their wrist.

The Skydive Instructor will capture a short interview on the ground, plane ride up with views, plane exit, parachute opening, your face throughout the skydive and during the parachute ride too, and gives a great scenic views while under the parachute! The angle is much closer up than the outside camera…

A freefall videographer is a skydiver whose job it is to wear a camera on their helmet, fly with you and film your whole skydive. The videographer will exit the plane with you and capture your exit from the plane, all of freefall and landing from the best angles. They’ll even grab you on the ground for a reaction shot!

The benefit is that the angle is further away than handcam, meaning you can see your whole body and the sky and ground around you too, giving a great sense of position. You also get handcam video when you purchase Outside Camera so you’ll also get the parachute ride footage.

Each skydiving video is different. With handcam, the video you get depends on you primarily, and how much you interact with the camera – and, most importantly, smile!


For outside camera, it’s a bit more creative. These are professional skydiving videographers who take great pride in their work – plus, they’re super awesome flyers themselves, which means they’ll sit right in front of you to film you as you fall, as well as flying around you to show how high up you are and to capture some of our exquisite views.


This might mean your video (and skydive experience with a fellow person in freefall) is a little different to your friend’s, but it makes sense, right – unique videos for unique experiences!

No, unfortunately not.


If choosing handcam, your instructor will wear the camera on his/her hand and only be able to capture you.

When you choose outside camera, you get a dedicated camera person who will film your experience for you. They sit in front of you in the sky in freefall and fly around you to capture the whole experience. That means they can only film one skydiver at a time. It’s also a safety requirement, as we have to have adequate distance between our tandem skydivers, which makes it impossible for the camera person to film more than one at a time.

The main regret we hear from our tandem skydiving customers is that they didn’t buy a skydiving video. Once you’ve experienced the jump, you’ll undoubtedly want to share it with everyone you know and post it on your social networks, but without a video, there’s no way to do that!


You’ll receive your skydiving video and be able to upload to YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc. and to share it via email or simply gather round the TV and watch together.

Booking your skydiving video/photos is simple! Book online when purchasing your skydive. We recommend this option when booking Outside Cameraman. All options (subject to Outside Camera availability) can also be added on, on the day of your skydive or anytime by calling us. We are Sydney’s only skydive that offers full refunds.

On the Day and Getting Here

The average duration for your skydive is 2 hours. This includes check-in at Shellharbour Airport, safety briefing, boarding the aircraft, scenic flight, skydive with beachside landing and trip back to the airport. Aim to arrive at or just before your booking time.

The parachute landing area is just 10 minutes from Shellharbour Airport.

We don’t keep you waiting unnecessarily! In some cases we may experience unavoidable delays caused by air traffic or weather. If this is the case, we will work closely with you to move the booking to another mutually convenient time slot. For this reason, we recommend having a flexible itinerary planned for your day.

Check out our contact page for how to get here from Sydney or Canberra for your skydive.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer skydiving to as many people as possible, young, old and those with a disability. Because all our Instructors are highly qualified and experienced, we are able to accommodate those who have the desire to skydive. Please contact us for an individual assessment.

Skydiving is a weather dependent sport. There are certain conditions that prevent us from jumping, which can be a bit of a bummer! But it’s all about mitigating risk, so when the wind is too strong or the clouds are too big, we’re stuck on the ground.

We will contact you the day before to confirm your skydive. If it looks like we won’t be able to skydive due to weather, we will let you know as soon as possible in case you’re travelling from Sydney or Canberra for your Skydive.

In the unfortunate event that weather means you can’t jump on the day you’d hoped to jump, don’t worry! We’ll simply reschedule your jump for another day. We will let you know, with as much notice as possible, if your skydive is impacted by the weather.

If you’re unsure about how the weather’s going to be on the day of your jump, feel free to get in touch.

We recommend booking a morning slot as the weather is usually more favourable.

Even though you’ll be landing alongside the beach, enclosed shoes with a flat sole (like sneakers) are essential.

You can skydive in almost any clothing that you’re comfortable in, just remember to wear warmer clothing on colder days.

Contact lenses and/or spectacles can be worn as normal. We provide goggles to wear during the skydive including goggles that fit over spectacles.
