It has been over 12 years since I made a jump, but I recently went with a great friend of mine who wanted to do his first tandem jump. We chose Skydive OBX and what a great choice that was! Sven and Heather immediately put us at ease with their obvious love for the sport. Their professionalism and knowledge was... More

My friend Bruce and I had a great time with OBX Skydive. Bruce had been skydiving many time before but this was my first. Sven and his girlfriend (sorry bad with names) were very friendly and eased my nerves. They were just the right mix of laid back and professional. Will be doing this again next year for sure. Thanks... More

we had an amazing time at skydive obx. My wife and I went for our first jump and loved every second of it. Everyone there was extremely friendly and they made us feel like we were part of the team. We will definitely be back to jump again. It is worth every penny.

What can I say, of all the crazy and exciting things I have done, this by far tops the charts. I went up with Sven, and my daughter went up with Pete. Nothing like free falling at 120+ mph plus towards the ground for 30 seconds. I am not a big fan of heights but this was no problem. The... More

I went here for a birthday tandem, since at this point I had not started AFF. This was my 2nd jump, and Sfin totally showed me a good time. I live in Corolla, so it's hard to find something to get excited about on the Outer Banks after living here for so long. My first tandem was on Oahu and... More

I've always wanted to skydive, and I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful location. The views were amazing. Mike, my tandem partner, was professional and inspired confidence. Had a wonderful time, and I'm now considering jumping again. The custom video was a bit pricey, but well worth it.

The instructors are very experienced and fun! I felt very safe, not nervous at all! Would do it again! Was not going to get the DVD but did and glad I did! Awesome pics to remember the adventure! Thanks Sven!

My daughter and I jumped with Skydive OBX on July 9th while on a family vacation in the Outer Banks. We made a reservation over the phone about a week in advance for the early bird discount. We arrived right on time (although I would suggest getting there a few minutes early) and had no problems with the reservation or... More

Dishonest advertising, but we had fun anyway. They claim to offer an early bird special, but when asked, it wasnt availailable, it was apparent that they were not interested in giving away any kind of deals. last year there was a coupon. This year there is not. Only one person can skydive per flight. This was frustrating especially with our... More
