    Does Skydiving Feel Like Falling?

    We get asked a lot, "what does skydiving feel like?" When people imagine going skydiving, they are often picturing themselves falling through the sky with that roller-coaster feeling in their belly. Despite literally plummeting through the sky toward Earth, there is none of that sensation you would expect. Why is that, and what does skydiving actually feel like?

    Can You Go Skydiving and Scuba on the Same Day?

    If you're trying to have the most adventurous 24 hours ever, you might be interested in scuba diving and flying (and jumping out of that perfectly good plane!) all in the same day. It's a cool idea - and also a potentially very dangerous one.

    There are lots of skydiving rules and recommendations that cover a multitude of topics you probably wouldn't have thought to even associate with skydiving. For instance, it can be an issue to scuba and fly within a short period of time. Both are extreme types of diving, but one is miles above the ground and the other is below sea level.

    Drunk Skydiving: Can You Drink and 'Dive?

    Let's be real, nobody really says "dive" when talking about skydiving but we just couldn't miss out on the punny opportunity! Get it?!?!

    Anyway ... the question is: can you drink before skydiving? The answer is, no. Some people are totally ready to take the plunge and go all-in for their first time skydiving experience, but some others feel the need to fuel up with a little liquid courage to muster the bravery to go skydiving. However, it is PROHIBITED to have any alcohol in your system the day of your skydive.
