I decided to take my girlfriend skydiving for her birthday but not before asking if she'd be okay with that lol! All phone interactions were quite pleasant very well spoken! This made it pretty easy to not feel apprehensive about the place I had chosen to do a tandem skydive with. Dakota was my dive instructor, he was very professional... More

Charlie was very accommodating with our desire to see something attractive and green. The plane was narrow so it is a tight fit for two but possible. Be sure to bring your camera and wear sunglasses !

Having completed the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course at Skydive Hollister, I highly recommend the drop zone for anybody interested in learning skydiving in a supportive, professional and fun environment. The Hollister crew is highly experienced and instructors have thousands of jumps under their belts, yet somehow they have maintained complete enthusiasm for their jobs and are out to have fun,...

The ppl were great and the price was good (I used a Groupon). The only downfall is that the view from skydiving in Hollister is not as beautiful as skydiving in a place like San Diego. If you like skydiving, I still recommend it.

The current owners bought the business & airplane a few years back. At times the phone is not answered, other times it is. Staff at the airport state that they have not been making payments to the old owners on the aircraft or business. They said that some repo guys were snooping around the aircraft a few months back. Not... More

The receptionist department here at this little town of Hollister definitely should, without a doubt, provide trainings for their employees to become better in their organization skills, as well as their communication skills. With all the past reviews I read and experienced I had at this place today, was not a mistake. Therefore, LADY BOSS should take this to the... More

I turned 50 last year and decided to try one new thing each month of the year. This was "new thing" for April and BY FAR the best thing I did all year. We had been advised to choose Hollister over Lodi by SEVERAL people who jump regularly and in the military. They based their opinions on both safety records... More

I did a tandem jump here a while back. Would never go here again. Admittedly the jump itself was a blast--what a rush! But this operation is one to avoid. Despite assurances on the Groupon site by the company owner (Mako) they didn't truly honor the Groupon purchase. Sure, we got "credit" for it, but we were forced to upgrade... More

I went skydiving at Hollister Skydiving on my birthday this year, and it was a wonderful blast. Like most first time sky diver, I was nervous and excited at the same time. But the experience turned out to be thrillingly enjoyable and much less scary that I anticipated. Once you got up that high (in my case, 15,000 feet), you... More

A group of 30 went on a Saturday, scheduled to jump at noon. When we booked, we were told that our group was the last scheduled for the day, and we would be able to jump as many times as we like, and had the plane until 7 pm. We arrived at 11 am, and filled out the needed paperwork,... More
