There are no words to describe this incredible experience you just have to see it for yourself! The team was amazing, such a positive vibe and nothing but laughs to get you in the right frame of mind. Most importantly, they prioritized your sense of safety and security going over safety checks throughout the process. I had the time of my life and I’m ready for another jump!!!

My friend and I skydived for the first time at Skydive Danielson and could not have asked for a better experience. The staff were welcoming, kind, and understanding. We felt very safe and had a great jump. The video footage and photos came out great and we are so glad to have them to remember this experience. She jumped with Jerry, I jumped with Andrew Y., and her additional videographer was another Andrew. They were all three awesome and helped to make our first skydive experience really fun and memorable! We already can't wait to jump again!

I cannot give a stronger recommendation than this. I started the Accelerated Freefall Program at Skydive Danielson in August. I picked them because they were open 6 days a week and liked what I saw on their website. I called them to check on a few things and was encouraged by their knowledgeable and complete answers. Immediately upon arrival, I felt welcomed. The staff was warm and friendly. They explained the check-in process to me and the others that were also checking in. They answered all the questions in a clear fashion. We were then directed to fill out information on tablets, watched an informative video on what we were going to do and then met our instructors. The video answered many questions. Once we briefed with our instructors we sat at the picnic tables and chairs to watch the jumpers that arrived earlier in the day. It was so exciting! We could hear the “new” jumpers hooting and hollering as they floated down in their chutes. The smiles on their faces said it all. Many of them brought out their friends and family. When they rejoined their families they were like little kids jumping up and down about how awesome it was and how they cannot wait to do it again. I continued with the program so I could earn my “A” license. I am up to jump 12 now and have been in the plane with many first timer tandem jumpers. The instructors have been a wealth of knowledge and have become my friends. Safety – The instructors check you, check you again and recheck you to insure all your gear is on you correctly. They look at the weather and wind and will only jump if the conditions are safe. The attention to detail is absolute. These professionals place safety first and follow that with helpful information and having a lot of FUN! If you do decide to become a student, think about that first tandem jump and ramp up that feeling. After just a few jumps, you can be jumping out of the plane by yourself! The feeling is incredible! The owners are great people. The folks that do the schedules and welcome you upon arrival are so nice. The instructors are top shelf. The view from 2 ½ miles above the Connecticut countryside is fabulous. It is noisy at first when you jump, but shortly the parachute will open and is will be very quiet. Just you and the instructor taking it all in. The landing is in a thick grassy field right next to where your family will be watching. I have seen 18 to 92 year olds jump at Skydive Danielson. It is a phenomenal experience. Enjoy!

My wife bought me this for my 60th bday. There are no words to describe the Adrenalin rush and exhilarating experience it was. The beauty from above is unbelievable. Instructor was great and kept reiterating my role as well as checking my attachment often. Made me feel protected and safe. It was an experience of a life time.
