Plunge towards the ground from 10,000 feet up and experience the thrill of pure adrenaline.

Then feel the relief of your chute opening before you come to rest on the beautiful terrain of the North Okanagan.

Okanagan Skydive Adventures wants to bring this remarkable experience to you.

The company specializes in introducing new divers to the sport and welcomes jumpers of all abilities.

Skydive Adventures is located at 6260 Tronson Road at the regional airport and offers both tandem and solo jumps, from 9 a.m. until dark.

Saddle Mountain is another popular launch site but is restricted to those who are accompanied by a local pilot.
