Skydiving at Hawaii

Adrenaline Over Aloha: Sky Dive in Hawaii (2024)

Dive into the thrill of a lifetime as I share my incredible sky dive in Hawaii for my birthday. From heart-pounding freefalls to breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, this adrenaline-pumping adventure was nothing short of spectacular. Join me on this daring escapade and discover why a birthday skydive in Hawaii is an absolute must for adventure seekers!

I was thrilled when my friend surprised me with a last-minute trip to Honolulu for my birthday. With just three days before our flight, I hadn’t planned anything for the trip, as I typically go with the flow when solo traveling and figure things out on the spot.

As I started researching activities in Hawaii, I came across the option of skydiving from 20,000 feet. The idea was incredibly tempting, and I was eager to take on this thrilling adventure. Having experienced skydiving in Victoria on the Great Ocean Road (from 14,000 feet), the prospect of a 20,000-foot tandem skydive in Hawaii was simply irresistible. Upon checking the website, I discovered that the cost for this extraordinary experience was USD 1600 per person.

Feeling quite disappointed due to the high cost of the 20,000-foot tandem skydive, I began exploring other options. Fortunately, I came across the 14,000-foot tandem dive, which seemed more within my budget. Excited by this prospect, I quickly messaged my friend to gauge her interest in skydiving in Hawaii. This adventurous activity holds a special place in the hearts of thrill-seekers visiting the islands. It was noon in my time zone (Australian Eastern time), which meant it was still early morning (around 7:30 AM) in her time zone (Indian time). Without waiting for her response, I booked the skydiving experience for both of us at 12:01 PM.

During our four-day stay in Honolulu as part of our Hawaii trip, we crafted a perfect and fun-filled itinerary. To discover our recommendations, check out the detailed 4-day itinerary for Honolulu.

On the Day of the Sky Dive

The day unfolded with warmth and beauty—a perfect setting for the skydive. Emotions of excitement and nervousness intertwined, and my friend, despite her fears, had mustered the courage to take the leap.

Following a thorough briefing and the securing of our harnesses, we boarded a plane that would ascend to 14,000 feet. Positioned at the forefront of the jump queue, I eagerly anticipated my turn to plunge from the aircraft.

A highlight of this skydiving experience was the presence of a dedicated photographer who jumped alongside us, capturing the exhilarating moments. This added element, absent during my initial skydiving adventure in Melbourne, heightened the thrill and ensured a visual record of the entire experience.

The feeling of weightlessness combined with the rush of adrenaline made it an unparalleled adventure.

This extraordinary skydiving experience unfolded during my birthday trip, making it even more special. The sheer thrill of free-falling amidst the picturesque Hawaiian landscape created memories that will last a lifetime.
