A tandem skydive with Skydive Parys is probably the most exhilarating experience you could have in the Free State! The jump zone is over the mighty Vaal River and overlooks the mountains of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will have to go far to find a better view. The operation runs smoothly, professionally and safety is their main concern.... More

I was really nervous beforehand but soon calmed down a bit when I experienced the utmost... More

Skydiving has always been on my bucket list and I finally did it this December with Skydive Parys. Fritz, Corné and Kallie (our instructors), Miemie (our pilot), the management team and ground team were all very professional. Our DVDs and pictures were produced in no time and the entire process was managed seamlessly and professionally. The view was perfect! I... More

What a blast! Extremely professional instructors and pilot. Makes you feel at ease with all their experience of thousands of jumps/fights each. Cool calm and collected - thank you Kallie for making my experience even more memorable. Super instructor.

This is a must. One of the best days in my life!!! The Skydive Masters - Thatch, Corne and Fritz was great. They made the experience so much more fun. It was exhilarating, fast and fun. Skydive Parys is well organised and really make it a fun event. Would definitely suggest people do this. Money well spend!
