Jumping out of a plane is way more exciting than going to the zoo or park, or at least we think so! We can accommodate groups large or small. Come see us for your next birthday, bachelor or bachelorette party!

We pride ourselves on our 20+ years of being in business and know that no other skydiving company can compare in experience. This allows us to provide the necessary experience to make sure your jump is safe and enjoyable. Our staff of instructors has many, many years of combined experience. We can't wait to jump with you!


  • Gold Coast Skydivers has some of the most experienced instructors in the skydiving industry. They average over 20 years experience.

  • The tandem skydive is the most popular choice for first time jumpers in the New Orleans area. Requiring only ten minutes of instruction, the student can experience the thrill of free fall with relative ease. The student is attached to an instructor with a special harness. They both exit the aircraft together and descend under one parachute. During the entire skydive, the instructor is safely guiding the student. Appointment highly recommended.

    Minimum Age: 18. PHOTO ID REQUIRED!

Amazing experience!!! Definitely recommend Gold Coast Skydivers for anyone's first time skydiving - or even if it's not the first time . The staff is really great - super professional and very experienced and really helped to calm my nerves - though some do get pretty upset when you touch their nuts. And the actual skydive was amazing. Will be back!!

Holy cow. Can’t begin to say how amazing this place is. The crew. Amazing. The support staff. Amazing. I was comfortable, encouraged, it was so amazing. Went with some friends (all of us are college students), when we couldn’t get an Uber back they literally drove us over an hour back home. It was so unbelievably amazing. I felt so safe. Not enough good things to say. Will be returning

Best skydive ever!
Leann and the group at Gold Coast are top notch. This has become an annual event for our family and we wouldn't do it anywhere else. Tandem jump instructors are first class and make your jump truly memorable and a great experience. Really a fantastic experience.

Definitely an incredible experience. Something I have wanted to do for a long time and glad that I got to do it! LOVED the free fall and seeing the round rainbows in the clouds. Felt safe with my tandem partner. GREAT photos that I will cherish. Thanks again!

Great Birthday Idea
Awesome time!! Staff is great, makes you feel at ease. Worth every penny. If you've never done it, make sure to get the video and pictures with it. Unbelievable feeling when you step out of that plane. Go for it, you won't be sorry.
