This was my 3rd sky dive and it was a brilliant experience! The staff are extremely experienced and were great with people who were a bit worried about jumping, they give you all the safety details and there are plenty of options for filming and photography. The weather was not great when we jumped but we managed to get up... More

But GOSH everytime I reminisce about the whole experience, I'm so glad I did it. The freefall experience is just surreal! And the views...OMG...this is one the... More
