We may have space for you now. We just added several trip dates to our schedule to help meet record demand for cage dives this year.

Speaking of corporate programs.... For the ultimate VIP getaway, consider an ice driving adventure in Finland.

Why are we telling you this?  So you'll know that Incredible Adventures is tuned in to the latest developments in civilian space travel and the company to call if you're looking for a space adventure.

Train in the F-104 Starfighter in Florida with Incredible AdventuresWe're currently taking reservations for high altitude flights aboard XCOR Aerospace's rocket-powered Lynx and selling suborbital flight training featuring the legendary F-104 Starfighter.

We offer zero-gravity adventures in the US and Russia and hands-on space training at Russia's Yuri Gagarin Astronaut Training Center. And, for 17 years now, we've been offering flights to the edge of space in Russian MiGs.

MiG Flight Trivia

We offer two flight options in the MiG-29, but we might as well just offer one.  This year, every single IA customer has chosen our MiG-29 edge of space package. Even though it's cheaper to choose a lower altitude aerobatic program, everyone wants to fly high this year.

Fly a Fighter Jet in Los Angeles with Incredible Adventures

We've had so many requests for information from Brazil this year that we've come out with an ad in Portuguese.  Don't let the Brazilians have all the fun. Schedule a Hollywood Top Gun Adventure in California.  For details, call 800-644-7382.

Everest Skydive Just Months Away

Skydive Everest with Incredible Adventures in October 2010Make the ultimate high altitude skydive!  We're still taking reservations for October Everest Skydive dates.  Join Wendy Smith and her team in Nepal for a jump you'll never forget.

No skydiving experience is necessary. Both solo and tandem jump programs are offered.  The cost of the jump is set in British pounds, so it varies with the exchange rate. Last time we checked, solo programs were $23,000 US and tandem programs were $32,000. For current pricing, contact Incredible Adventures.

Want Something Closer to Home?

Make a HALO jump near Memphis with Incredible Adventures.If you'd like to make an incredible skydive, but a journey to Nepal is out of the question, consider a HALO jump near Memphis, TN. In the military, HALO jumps are performed to avoid detection by the enemy. Troops exit the aircraft at a very high altitude and open their chutes low, so by the time the enemy sees them coming, it's too late.  Our tandem HALO jumps are similar, except there's no one on the ground shooting at you. We jump from approximately 30,000 feet and open low, giving you twice the amount of freefall as a traditional skydive. The cost is $3495 and no skydiving experience is necessary.  

What's for Dinner?  Wildebeest? Snake? Possum? Crocodile?

Training with Specops and Incredible Adventures

If you've tuned in to watch Man, Woman, Wild on TV's Discovery Channel, you've seen our very own Mykel Hawke and his wife Ruth give new meaning to the phrase "cooking out."  Hawke is a Green Beret and survival expert and is shown each week teaching Ruth how to survive in the wild. Each week's episode shows the couple stranded in a new location and the challenges they face obtaining the four essentials of, water, shelter and fire. 

The show airs in the US Friday nights at 9 pm EST and is rebroadcast multiple times throughout the week. You can see video clips from the show on Discovery's website.

If you'd like Hawke or another member of our Specops team to teach you how to survive off the land, give us a call. Private and group survival courses are available in a variety of locations.
