Whenever I go on holiday I always look for a experience that I can always say 'I did that'. Now Florida is filled with exciting things to do in the way of theme parks etc but doing a skydive was absolutely amazing. I have never done a skydive in my life before, so at the age of 36, what better... More

The free fall was the most incredible experience and even let... More

I came here to celebrate my 23rd birthday with my best friend and wow, what an experience! She was a little scared to go last minute. So I dived alone. Everyone there was so friendly. They made us both feel so welcome. I came last minute without a reservation and they took great care of me. Paperwork was a little... More

GREAT TEAM!! That's what they are there, a team, not staff! A few of the team asked me who my instructor was. I said exactly that.. I had a team, Dennis Bracco was my instructor/my confidence booster, the voice on the inside letting me know I was going to be just fine, Johnathon was my motivator, Taylor was my "skydive... More

I had an amazing time here for my first jump. Some people reviewing complain about having to wait but they can't control the weather. My first jump got cancelled because it was to windy. I came back the next day and was able to get up fairly quick. The instructors were very good and made me feel very comfortable. The... More
