Travel Risk/Insurance:

It should be noted that adventure travel involves risk. Whilst we make every effort to safeguard clients, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or loss due to the actions of our clients which are beyond our control. We highly recommend that all clients have travel insurance covering illness, injury, loss or damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on the confirmed date of departure.

Failure to meet at the specified pick-up location may be treated as “No Show”, for which the Client Cancellation Policy applies.

We strongly recommend that you have travel insurance, especially during the wet season.

In the unlikely event of your trip being cancelled or stood down, all guest communication is required to go through our Online Store via telephone or email. While there is a Sailing Whitsundays retail outlet located Airlie Beach, please be aware that they operate as a separate entity and are unable to access reservations made by the Mr Travel online department.

You will be emailed confirmation once the refund has been processed. Once the refund has been processed, it may still take time for the banks to clear the amount. Please allow 7-10 business days for the funds to clear into Australian accounts and up to 21 business days for international accounts.


All Service Operators have the right to provide client feedback and to cancel bookings based off of feedback from other Service Operators. 

Please enjoy your travel experience in a kind and responsible manner.

Loved it! The adrenaline rush was so intense I can't clearly remember the first few seconds!
Lydia Herrich, 04 Aug 22
Amazing! So fun, but scary when my friend jumped and disappeared until I jumped. Need a sleep after using all my adrenaline.
Elspeth Chapman, 04 Aug 22
It was so good! Not scary, I feel immortal!
Lotte Ruijter, 19 Jul 22
This was so exhilarating! I will have to do more skydives in the future, maybe Airlie Beach next!
