Went with son in-law on 17 May 14. It was his first, and my final jump. The view of the outer banks from 9,000 feet was just awesome. The instructor made the jumps a lot of fun. The video and picture package, even though a bit pricey at $100 per person, is money well spent. The video is professionally edited... More

If you've ever even considered skydiving, this is the place to do it. The staff is super experienced and ultra-friendly, and the view on the way down is nothing short of spectacular. I went for my first jump and felt nothing but comfort and excitement. The video/photo package is so worth it! Go and have a blast!

My boyfriend and I did our first jump there! I have to say, with the Atlantic Ocean right here, I don't think the view can get any better than that! Also, I have to say that the professionalism of the staff made us feel very comfortable. Worth every cent!

We watched a relative do a tandem jump recently and the experience for her was 100% great. She loved the pictures and vidoe she opted to get and had a very good experience overall. As spectators we were kept informed regarding her progress and the attention to safety was evident. If you are in the OBX and want this experience... More

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
