About Us

What makes Skydive the Falls Stand out?

As a consumer you have options on where you choose to skydive.

The team at Skydive the Falls believes it’s important for you to know the facts about these options.

Once you have decided to go skydiving a couple of things will remain constant, mainly the freefall and the parachute ride. The feeling of freefall will be basically the same anywhere you go and the parachute flight won’t vary that much either. Most dropzones will give you a safe and fun skydive.

The difference comes down to what sets us apart…

The view, the people, the process and the product.

The View

We can say with confidence that we have the superior view!

      Skydive the Falls is the ONLY skydiving center that circles over the top of Niagara Falls by joining the scenic pattern. This guarantees our guests the best possible views of the Falls. We take off from Shear Airport (63NY) then fly down the Niagara River seeing sights like the Toronto Skyline, Fort Niagara, local landmarks such as ArtPark Amphitheater and Whirlpool State Park just to name a few. Once we reach Niagara Falls we join the scenic traffic pattern where you get even more breathtaking views. We then head back to our dropzone to make our skydive!

      Seeing the mist of the Falls from 45 miles away is not the same. Don’t be fooled! As a consumer you have the right to know the facts and make an educated decision!

Our Product

We believe we offer one of the most incredible skydives in the industry. Of course we have one of the seven natural wonders of the world on your ride to altitude. In addition we have Incredible views of lake Ontario, the lower Niagara River and the Canadian shoreline including the Toronto skyline! We have the best people who are truly devoted to your experience with us. We provide a Cessna Grand Caravan and a Cessna 206 with a  rear door as our regular jump ships for the most comfortable ride to altitude and better exiting position. We also take you to a higher altitude on a regular basis than any other dropzone in our area. We are also known to bring in even larger aircraft throughout the season please check our events page or call us directly for those dates.

Skydive the Falls is the closest dropzone to Buffalo NY and Niagara Falls. In fact Skydive the Falls is the only skydiving center in the 716 area code. Why drive further for a lesser experience. If you’re only going to do it once… Skydive the Falls!

The Process

From the moment you set foot on our property to the time you leave you will be treated as our guest. You will be greeted from friendly team members and checked in at our manifest office. You will then be given your training by one of our many qualified instructors. After your training you will be paired with an instructor and suited for your skydive! Upon your return to earth you will be guided back to our training area where you will be awarded your first jump certificate and congratulated on your achievement!
