Easiest to reach by ferryboat from one of the neighbouring islands, travel from Dumaguete Port to the island – a one-way ferry ticket to Siquijor starts at PHP 120 and travel time is almost 2 hours. Meanwhile, one-way ticket for fast craft starts at PHP 210 and transit time is roughly 1 hour.
Meet your jump master at the small local airbase in Siquijor 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 Siquijor and out into the distance, you’ll soar to an altitude of 10,000ft where you’ll get the best views of the coral reef-lined beaches, dense inland jungle and stunning aquamarine coastline– one of the most beautiful views from the sky, marvel at this jewel in the Central Visayas crown, 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.
