Skydiving in the Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel

Fancy flying over one of the finest skydiving sites in the world? Look no further than the Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel.  Shortly before performing your skydive, you will undergo a safety briefing on the ground at Granville aerodrome. After take-off, a 30-minute flight will gradually take you up to between 3,000 and 4,000m altitude for the jump, while allowing you to enjoy views of the Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel, Granville and the Chausey Islands from above. 

Time to jump! Harnessed to an experienced instructor, you’ll experience incredible views of the Mont-Saint-Michel during the free dive at a speed of 200km/hour (controlled descent), landing just a few meters from the beach. It’s as simple as that!
