GoSkydive

Skydiving In the New Forest

A tandem skydiving experience like no other

The UK’s Specialist tandem skydiving centre just 60 minutes from the New Forest

The UK’s specialist tandem skydiving centre just half an hour from New Forest. GoSkydive is the UK’s only specialist first-time tandem skydive centre. Located in Salisbury on the central south coast just 30 minutes from New Forest, GoSkydive is your closest tandem skydiving centre. If you are travelling to us from New Forest by car our centre is easily accessible by the A338. At GoSkydive, customers from New Forest and across the UK are taken through a customer journey that cannot be matched by any other skydiving centre in the UK.
We are the only centre that specialises in parachute jumps for first time skydivers. But what does that mean? It means that we only do tandem skydives – you won’t be competing for time and space with sports jumpers – the whole day is built around you and other first-time skydivers. We’ll consider your travel time and try and get you booked in later in the day, we’ll keep you updated with weather reports to, where possible, avoid unnecessary delays. There will be a briefing within 30 minutes of your arrival, you’ll receive full training in a simulated environment and there will be a whole team of people on hand to support you at all times.
The view from the skydive in Salisbury to the New Forest is visible on clear days. Looking south towards the coast shows the New Forest flanked by the Solent to its east and the Isle of Wight to its south.

Charity Skydives New Forest

If you’re thinking of a way to raise money for a good cause, tandem skydiving for charity is a great way to do it.

It is not only admirable that you are brave enough to jump out of a plane at 15,000 feet and that people give generously to your cause – but you also get to have the most amazing life-changing experience. Thousands of charity skydives are done by GoSkydive each year, and here’s one – Zoe Ball’s jump for MNDA.

In doing a tandem skydive for charity, you’ll be doing something life changing that will attract people to sponsor your cause. A staggering half a million pounds was raised for good causes by GoSkydive in 2015, more than any other skydiving company in the UK.

Call Gaby in the charity team 01722 442967 or email charities@goskydive.com for more info on our charity affiliations.

  • I went from terrified to the most amazing experience in my life.
    Each and every member of Go Sky dive were fantastic.
    Mias was so so reassuring with me even though I was his 14th that day!
    My camera man, oh my god my photos and video are just 100% perfect

  • Sensational service from start to finish. The check in, induction, kitting up, instructor, camera man – everybody – was so supportive and friendly. The experience was terrifying, but the staff could not have done anymore to get me through the day! I felt completely safe, and despite how many jumpers they had on the day I felt the attention to detail and service was so personalised for each one of us. I highly recommend using this company if you are considering a sky dive, especially if you are a first timer. My sincere heartfelt thanks to the wonderful team, especially Mias, my instructor – I was certainly not an easy person to have due to my nerves!

  • Amazing experience, felt relaxed and safe throughout whole experience. Completed 15,000ft tandem jump with Henk as my instructor. It was awesome and he did a perfect job of showing me what to do and making sure I enjoyed the experience!!

  • I jumped with my team to raise money for Charity on Friday. Although the weather was rather rubbish in the morning, which meant we were delayed by 5 hours, it was well worth the wait. The team also kept us in the loop and we had some yummy sausage sandwiches in the cafe. I hate that I cannot remember the name of my tandem guy but he was amazing. Although there were some cheeky wind up merchants on the flight, he was super supportive and made me feel at ease. He made the experience magical as we did some fun spins and even flew through a cloud and saw a rainbow! When we landed I got a huge hug and he said how proud he was of how I did. The first time I jumped I had a camera but it was nice this time around to go without as I could focus on the experience and not the camera if that makes sense. This was my second skydive (8 years apart) and I can officially say I have the bug! I am now desperate to save up to get my licence. I think my instructors comment of ‘Welcome to my office’ whilst thousands of feet in the air probably did it. I cannot recommend this enough. Don’t let your nerves put you off! It’s super safe and you are in the best hands. Thank you Go Skydive! I will likely be seeing you again soon…

  • The most awesome experience ever from the thought of jumping out of the plane to the moment of free fall and the feeling of exhilaration of actually having done it life changing moment next time 15000ft boom

  • GoSkydive in Salisbury is absolutely fantastic! I did my first tandem skydive yesterday afternoon and I could not have been more impressed with the team. They were all professional, very friendly, organised and efficient and the whole experience is planned perfectly. My Instructor, George, was quite simply amazing! A truly lovely man who really took the time to calm my nerves and to make sure I had an awesome time. Thank you, George!

  • Brilliant experience, the whole experience was very well organised. Henk (my instructor) was fantastic. All staff I encountered were very professional yet very fun. On the whole it was the best day out and I would recommend a skydive to anyone, one more ticked off my bucket list.

  • The experience was amazing, made even better by the first class instructors. If you like to push yourself outside your comfort zone this is a must!
