Parachuting spots

New Caledonia has several spots for thrill-seekers. First of all in Nouméa, over Kuendu Beach, at the far end of an unspoiled peninsula.

    The climb before the leap

    Before rising high, you’ll get a brief on what to do, the rules to follow and the main steps of tandem jumping. Then, you’ll take off in a small plane that can carry a small number of pairs: adrenaline is shared in small groups! Some twenty minutes later, after admiring the bays, the ocean and the islets, you’ll be between 3,400 and 4,000 m in altitude and the show can begin!

    The adrenaline of freefalling

    In a fraction of a second, everything comes loose in the void! Hold into the experienced instructor and make sure to keep your eyes open behind your goggles for 30 to 40 seconds of freefall. A 200 km/h fall still gives you the impression of floating in the sky, resting on a soft cushion. There’s no feeling of gravity, but an impression of absolute freedom.

    Gliding through the air

    Once you arrive at 1,500 m in altitude, a new step begins. The parachute opens and you only need to enjoy the few minutes separating you from the ground. Depending on the wind and the instructor’s experience, you’ll still be floating above magical landscapes. You can even handle the parachute yourself, until the instructor takes over and lands you both on the ground.

    According to a pro parachutist

    Maxime Dumortier from Nouméa Skydive: “In terms of sensation, a jump is always extraordinary. But as for the view, it’s incomparable to jump over the Caledonian lagoon, which is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Whether you’re in a plane or parachuting, Caledonian or a tourist, your reaction is always the same: Wow!”
