A tropical island packed with local charm, Santa Fe might be off the beaten path, but travelling to this little-known oasis is half the fun! Experience is natural beauty from the sky on this skydiving experience, organised and operated by a professional tandem instructor.

Meet your jump master at the airbase in Santa Fe for a tandem skydive from 10,00ft. Starting off with an introduction to the activity and the kit you’ll be wearing, gear up with a flight suit and goggles before you head to the strip and board the aircraft. A 30-40 minute panoramic flight over Bantayan Island and out into the distance, you’ll soar to an altitude of 10,000ft where you’ll get the best views of the bleached sandy shoreline, turquoise waters and larger Cebu archipelago – one of the most beautiful views from the sky, marvel at the island from above, gearing up for your big jump. Securely strapped to the tandem master, take a deep breath – it’s time to take the ultimate leap of faith and freefall for 30 seconds at 200km/h! Before you know it, your jumpmaster will have opened the parachute and you’ll glide for another 4-8 minutes – offering you a chance to really take in the views as you glide back down to the airbase, performing a soft landing in a dedicated drop zone.
This skydive activity uses a small private aircraft custom made for skydiving. Whilst spectators are not allowed to accompany you in the aircraft, they are free to watch from the airbase. Please dress appropriately in closed toe shoes and comfortable clothing.
