I can't believe I did this. I am very scared of heights. When we were getting on the plane I told Gareth I had changed my mind. I was scared he would make fun of me but he said let's just go for the fly anyway, he said nice things all the way up and made me feel comfortable. I... More

Great communication right from the online booking all the way up to the day of the jump. Reception staff on the phone and in person were incredibly friendly and informative. The pick-up bus ran a little bit late but had minimal impact on the time of our scheduled jump. We are grateful for the experienced skydive instructors - Frank and... More

Overall we found this to be a well-organized establishment. Of course there could be some weather-dependent delays at times, but that's to be expected with this kind of activity, and is rare in this part of the world. We were lucky with the weather, and were finished in 3 hours from check-in through to collecting photos of the jump afterwards... More

First off, I booked a bungy jump / skydive package with AJ Hackett. I was at the pickup point at 6:15am and it got to 7:39am and the bus still hadn't turned up. I phoned the company and it seems they completely "forgot" about me. Anyway, this problem was rectified by sending another bus to pick me up but this... More

What an experience! The staff was very professional, friendly and funny. We paid to get the jump recorded and the video turned out just perfect, both my video and my partners video. Would recommend this to anyone!

I had a great time with my group! My instructor Chris was really helpful and easy to deal with. Pictures and video turned out nicely. The only reason for the four star review was the rude lady at reception. There was an issue on their end that impacted our whole group and she wasn't interested in resolving it. I had... More

This is a must do!! I was a bit nervous but Chris made me feel super comfortable (doesn't hurt to have a hot guy strapped to your back). I felt safe at all times in very competent hands. I went at 5:30am - super early but the sunrise is gorgeous and worth missing some sleep for!! Highly recommend this and... More
