Experienced staff, who didn't seem interested in engaging with us. They were more interested in talking to each other, which made the experience less fun. The dive however, was awesome. Reasonably priced and a pretty good experience.

Very friendly staff - they have obviously done this a hundred times in the past, yet they had all the patience in the world to deal with our excitement and questions. We both jumped, but we were told over and over that it was OK if we backed out. We booked our skydive last minute and got a space the... More

We had pre-booked our skydive with Skydive Surfcity and turned up a little earlier than originally planned in the early afternoon. When we walked in we were not greeted by anybody despite there seeming to be a few people milling about. It turns out they were all staff but it was difficult to tell as no one introduced themselves or... More

My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary with our first skydive and Caleb and Eric were amazing jump partners. Unfortunately the beach landing wasnt available but we were notified before purchase but we still were able to jump over the ocean which was incredible. I highly recommend this place and look forward to future visits! thank you guys!

I rarely write reviews, but it is very important to recognise the people working hard to give a good experience/memory plus I took the decision to go there based on this website reviews, so its only fair that I also give feedback for future people looking for the same service. I jumped with my friend on June 7th, the instructors... More

We're a couple of virgin skydivers and were made to feel very comfortable. Amazing facilities, people were so friendly and Natasha on reception desk is absolutely lovely. Caleb and Volker were our jumpers and they made us so relaxed and we felt really safe, but also had such a laugh. Views were amazing, the whole experience is just completely indescribable!... More
