About Skydive Newport

A Family Owned Business Focused on Customer Service

Skydive Newport has been providing safe and professional tandem skydiving in Rhode Island since the summer of 1999. Offering the best instruction in the area combined with the most stunning views of the Newport Coastline, we pride ourselves in being unparalleled in safety and providing our customers with an exceptional experience from start to finish. Our aim is to treat each individual as a valued guest, and the owners are permanently on site to oversee each stage of your skydiving experience.

We operate out of a specialized building on a very customer friendly airport. Vending machines and clean bathrooms (with fully functioning/flushing toilets) are on site (a rarity amongst most skydiving locations throughout New England!). Bring your friends and family along for the day, as all spectators are welcome to use our picnic area on the edge of the landing area to relax while they watch your jump. They will be able to see you boarding the aircraft, taking off, and landing, all in front of them! Cameras are welcome for on-the-ground photography. Outside food is welcomed as well.

Located by the coast, Skydive Newport offers gorgeous views that easily rival most parachute centers in the United States. Serving Boston, MA, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and the rest of New England, your jump with Skydive Newport will take you on a journey from two miles above the pristine coastline of Newport, over Narragansett Bay and the Newport mansions. On a clear day you can see the outlines of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Block Island and Long Island, sometimes even all the way to Boston! Skydiving Boston and New England has never been easier or more enjoyable than with Skydive Newport.

You can find us at the Newport State Airport, just two miles away from the beach and four miles from downtown Newport. As the number one tourist destination in New England, Newport offers numerous nearby restaurants and shopping centers guaranteed to add to your perfect skydiving getaway. With a very extensive nightlife including a large number of pubs and live music venues, Newport, RI has something for everyone. For those wishing to extend their visit, there are many hotels very close to the airport so that you can enjoy everything that Newport and the surrounding area has to offer.

At Skydive Newport, we offer very accommodating reservation policies to our clients. We will not charge your credit card during the booking process and your money will be returned if you are unable to jump due to weather conditions. We completely understand that as our clients, you have a lot of different adventures that you want to complete during your stay in New England and we would never want to stop you from participating in anything on the chance that your skydive attempt is cancelled due to unfortunate weather. We complete all of our reservations over the phone in order to provide a personal experience to each individual guest as well as to be able to answer any questions that you may have regarding your jump.

Our primary aim at Skydive Newport is to offer the public a perfect location for their tandem skydive and a customer service experience to rival anything they have ever experienced.
