I surprised my boyfriend for his 29th birthday, and we could not have had a better experience. This was my first jump. Jennifer at the desk was amazing. I decided last minute (at the 5 minute warning) that I wanted to purchase the video package for my boyfriend, and Jennifer was more than accommodating and quickly asked the videographer (Jonathan)...

I purchased the groupon for my husband and I to do our first tandem skydive. It was a 30th bday present to my husband because skydiving has always been on his bucket list. The people there were great! They cracked joke with us to make us feel more comfortable and less nervous. My husband had Kenny and I had Pip.... More

First time sky diving and an experience that we will never forget. We arrived 20mins prior to our time slot, filled out all the paperwork, met our tandem jump partners, all fantastic friendly guys who totally put us at ease laughing and joking. Quick briefing as to what would happen, harnessed up and we were off. Words cannot describe how... More

This place is amazing! The facility is clean, and can accommodate small and large parties. I took my girlfriend skydiving for her birthday, and I will never forget this experience. Both of us were first timers, and the staff could have not been more welcoming, courteous and professional. All instructors have thousands and thousands of experienced jumps, and really know... More

My daughter purchased a groupon as a gift for her dad. She decided to jump with him. From start to finish this was a positive experience. The atmosphere of the whole place is laid back and relaxing. No pushy sales kicks. We decided to purchase the videos after watching another divers. They are very professional high def videos and I... More

What a great experience! Everything about the day was perfect. I was nervous, just like any newbie jumper would be, but the staff made us feel completely at ease. My tandem partner "Snickers" was totally cool, calm and collected, he suited me up, he went through the drill, and we were off. I felt 100% safe, and I knew that... More

First time doing a skydive so I was pretty apprehensive about the whole thing to say the least. The staff were fantastic though. They talked me through everything calmly and professionally, making me feel an awful lot safer. The skydive itself was just brilliant and I would definitely recommend this place for first timers. There were also a lot of... More

People ask me why I'd want to jump out of a perfectly good plane.... once you have you understand! I couldn't stop smiling!!! The 18,000 feet jump is worth the extra money. Frank, my tandem instructor, was incredible. After rolling out of the plane he asked, "Have you ever kissed a cloud?" The early morning fog had created a circular... More

We did a skydive somewhere else and hated it so thought we'd call in here on the way back home. WOW what a difference, if only we knew about this place first. Its a proper airport with loads of professional looking staff. We went to talk to the girl in the office and told her about going somewhere else and... More
