Ten thousand five hundred feet above the ground. Eighteen thousand pesos. Two hundred and fifty-pound weight limit. Two jumpers. One goal. Thrill factor: off the Richter!
Skydiving could possibly be the number one entry to cross off the bucket list of people whose appetite for excitement has gone up to dizzying heights. With the risk and rush that come with it, it might as well be the ultimate measure to get adrenaline junkies on a high (pun intended).
Skydive Greater Cebu offers different skydiving packages sure to please thrill-seekers all the world over. They follow a holistic program that gives opportunities for both the neophytes and the more serious jumpers. For less than P20,000, you can avail of their tandem jump, which allows you to go through basic skydiving with a certified instructor.
Dex Maligang gives us a taste of the experience. In this video, he documents his tandem skydive—from getting prepped to riding and jumping off the plane, to pulling the parachute, and finally landing safe on the shore. It’s easy to get lost in the flurry of his excitement, but take a moment to also appreciate the picture-perfect view of Bantayan Island.
