It was my first sky diving experience, and I was so nervous. But the staff were so nice and talked through everything. Loved it, and probably the best location to do it in! My only regret is not going for the higher option. They do rip you off with the photos though charged me $100, but only way your gonna... More

She woke in the night sweating, couldn't stop questioning people, everything!! It was driving me crazy! So much so that when we arrived at... More

I never intended to skydive but went along with a few friends who booked in advance. After chatting with Francoise, a 25 year skydiving veteran and part owner, before I knew it I was fully suited up. Although very nervous, he talked me through every aspect - from safety to the likelihood of an unfortunate event. While this is all... More

This morning at 10am I did my very first jump at 13,000ft! Spontaneously booked it with my partner last night and I spent the whole night nervously freaking out. I really don't know why. My dive partner was Emelio, and he was just the best! I felt so safe and secure with him and he was so lovely all the... More
