If you are looking for the thrill of skydiving but have concerns about all it entails, Long Island Skydiving Center in Shirley New York is your answer. The professional, well honed staff will quell all your fears. Everything you need to know is explained in detail. They will talk you through the process so your jump will give you the maximum thrill. My jump was a gift for my 80th birthday. I will jump again soon, but this time with friends who want to experience what I did.

Long Island Skydiving is awesome. The staff are all super knowledgeable and very friendly! They make you feel comfortable and excited at the same time! They bring the hype you need to feel like the entire experience is surreal. Honestly feels like a dream! They explain everything they do and give very simple yet complete instructions that keep you safe the entire time. Definitely worth going here if you ever plan on tandem skydiving!

I loved how everyone was extremely welcoming, staring right when you walked in the door. All of the workers there are social butterflies with great personalities. The instructors know what they are doing. They are very knowledgeable and experienced. I felt like I had time to get to know my instructor more on a personal level and gain trust, which made my jump easier. I have an anxiety disorder- with that being said, I surprisingly didn’t freak out and put my full trust in the process. Would I go again? HELL YEAH! I had a blast. However, I wouldn’t make skydiving my personal hobby- I’ll leave it up to the professional. The plane ride up was smooth and a beautiful sight to see each end of the island. The views are great! Even if you have a major fear of heights, you should still go. When you jump, you don’t get that “falling” feeling which is nice. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for that once is a life time experience.

I think it's a great place to jump. I've been here twice now. It's safe, reliable, and very friendly. It makes for a fun time. Elevation may not be as high as other skydiving centers but they still deliver the goos here.

My experience was phenomenal. Everyone was so welcoming and informative from the moment we checked in until leaving. My instructor Dan/Danny was super fun and hyped me up! I feel like all my nerves went away from the moment I met him. I love that he went over the instructions about 3 or 4 times while we were in the plane. Being someone that has a hard time focusing and listening when there is a lot going on around me, I really appreciated that he went over what to do more than once. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor and am so grateful that I was paired with him. The entire experience was perfection, and I am so excited to return for my 2nd sky diving experience!

I am super afraid of being so high up. I can’t lie, I was extremely nervous. However this was the absolute best and most freeing experience. JP, who I did my jump with was so attentive and helpful throughout the entire jump. He made me feel safe, not afraid and made me laugh whenever he could. He went above and beyond to make sure I was not only comfortable but also that I made the best of the jump. I highly recommend going with them even if you are only going to do it once. It was something so surreal and unexplainable unless you do it. 10/10!

It was a bad experience for me. I did my first jump in California way better . And the jumper was rude and very bad. He didn’t even take my video proper and there is no good photos and even didn’t take my face on that video. I shouldn’t recommend for anyone

Awesome. Had an excellent time and felt safe and secure with my instructor. A great setup out back while you wait to jump, and really cool workers out back with awesome skydiving stories to tell. I had a great first time experience, and would 100% return for more jumps.
I'm sending my thanks to your crew for bringing us up and down safely, and enjoyably.

This was absolutely an amazing time! My friend and I had done a little research and found how reliable and safe your company was. We were not disappointed in the slightest. The office worked with every need and question we had to make sure we set up a perfect time. And the instructors and staff on the day of the jump were amazing! What an experience that I will keep with me forever. They made it so enjoyable that I have even started planning on our next possible jump. For anyone who is on the fence: the hardest part was everything before you actually jump out of the plane. But the moment you are in the air everything becomes worth it. It’s so much more secure than I had even realized. Days later and I can still feel the experience in my skin! Simply life changing! Just do it!
