Activity description :

Have you always wanted to try skydiving? Nicolas and his team of professional skydivers will accompany you on a first flight over the Arcachon Basin.

The Arcachon basin, an exceptional spot

You'll jump over one of France's most beautiful seaside landscapes. The ultimate spot for skydiving in Gironde.

Departing from La Teste-de-Buch, you'll be able to admire the Dune du Pilat, the Banc d'Arguin, Ile aux Oiseaux and Cap-Ferret with its famous lighthouse.

You can also enjoy a splendid view of the ocean coast, from the Pyrenees to the Gironde estuary.

Course of the activity

After a 15-minute briefing, you'll embark on a flight aboard a Pilatus aircraft.

At an altitude of 4,000 meters, the aircraft door opens. Then it's time for the big free-fall jump into the air at over 200 km/h.

A professional skydiver with hundreds of jumps to his credit will be attached to you. At an altitude of around 1,500 meters, the parachute opens for a 5-8 minute canopy ride before landing on solid ground.

On arrival, you'll be presented with a diploma to immortalize the moment.

Several options are available: video (filmed by your instructor from the plane to the landing), photo & video, VIP photo & video (shooting by the instructor and a cameraman).

The center: run by the 2012 World Champion, the center is staffed by trusted instructors whom he has known for many years and who have a proven track record.

It's an original idea for a gift, especially for a loved one who loves adrenalin and extreme sports. You can also organize it for a bachelor party in Arcachon.
