“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

We got there still asking ourselves why the hell we've decided to skydive. But once we've got there we got immediatly into the right skydive mood. Everybody's relaxed and these guys live for the free falling.
We've been perfectly informed and guided through the whole process of preparing, flying, jumping, flying and landing!
Great job.

“Compare like with like.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

To Shelley Bonito
From your review having done 1 jump at Plettenberg Bay and then another at Cape Town is a rather thin skydiving CV to be so critical. You must compare like with like. Cape Town is SA's second largest city and for a DZ to be located a 20 minute drive from City Hall is not a great distance. In fact it is the most convenient DZ to any major city in SA. Once you start travelling the world you will understand how good it really is. Cities are not skydiving friendly locations when you take controlled air space, noise pollution constraints and finding space for a small airfield and DZ into account. By contrast Plettenberg Bay is a small coastal town with the airfield right on the perimeter and a stones throw away from the ocean. Be fair.

“Awesome experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I was surprised with a jump (my first) as a 50th birthday present and accompanied by a good friend, as well as my brother in law, who decided at the last moment to join us. What a great experience. I will never forget it. And the guys we jumped with were fantastic! Well done Skydive Cape Town!

“Amazing group of people bring you back down to earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

You can skydive anywhere in the world.. This group of people made the experience safe, relaxed and enjoyable by being informative, organized, warm and friendly. The surrounds are simple and rustic .. A hanger full of guys with a passion for free falling and clippings on the wall of their history including pics of prince Harry taking the pluge with them. You are always aware of the process you will follow and what you need to do to enjoy the drop safely.
They called us 4x's during the day to keep us informed of the weather and progress. When we got there they were expecting us and kept us informed of what to expect in the process. I'll def go back .. Was a great experience with laughs the whole way through ..

“Spoke Films”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

One of the "activities" we send our clients to do, that ensures they go home with plenty to say about Cape Town.
These guys ensure my clients are safe and sound each and every time.
