Plettenberg Bay

Live life to the fullest with the rush of a 35 second free fall at 200KPH! Skydive Plett has been operating in South Africa since 2002 and is now one of the busiest drop zones in the country.

They are situated on the coastline in the heart of the beautiful Garden Route, at the very bottom of the African continent. From a skydiving point of view, you can’t get a better location: the scenery is completely mind-blowing. Just one added bonus is that Plett is home to hundreds of dolphins and is an active breeding ground for whales between May and October every year.
