Skydiving in Cebu: How much does it really cost?

Do you have a bucket list yet? You know, that short – or maybe a lengthy yet epic – list of experiences you want to tick off before you “kick the bucket”. And one of the most common items found in anyone’s bucket list, especially the millennials, is skydiving — probably next to “traveling the world”.

For the adrenaline junkies, there is no greater feeling than jumping out of a soaring plane at least 20,000 feet up in the sky, wind gushing through your face and the earth below rushing up to meet you. Exciting, eh? The best part is, you don’t need to fly to another country to experience skydiving — it’s here in the Queen City of the South, in the beautiful Bantayan Island to be exact.

Ready to check off the classic Bucket List Item Number One? Scroll down ’til the end to know the important details.
