This was my second time jumping with Skydive Coastal Carolina and both times have been an amazing experience. Everyone there including the instructors, packers, other jumpers, and staff members were all extremely knowledgeable about the sport and were all really cool down to Earth people. Safety is the number one rule there. Safety checks upon checks to make sure everyone is safe before/during/ and after the jump.

I had the pleasure of having Chris as my tandem instructor. The amount of experience and knowledge he has under his belt made me feel incredibly confident in our jump and I can safely say it was an amazing time. I'll absolutely be returning in the years to come to continue to jump at Skydive Coastal Carolina

I'd highly recommend anyone who's interested in jumping or if you've jumped at other dropzones to give this place a shot! You won't be disappointed with that decision.

Thank you again Skydive Costal Carolina for another great experience!

Everyone at Skydive Coastal Carolinas was extremely welcoming, energetic, and enthusiastic. The staff truly made the experience. From beginning to end I always had someone walking me through what was happening which I greatly appreciated. My tandem guide was always there to answer my questions or just make me laugh to keep my mind off things.I would 1000% recommend this place to anyone and everyone I know whether it be their 1st jump or their 15th. I will definitely be going back in the near future to jump with them again!

Absolutely loved the jump and instructors were terrific. We were delayed a couple of hours due to weather in the morning that impacted the afternoon schedule. Not a big deal, we enjoyed seeing others jump. Due to lack of staff, our group had to be split into 2 groups, not good. We paid extra for the video, which is a must have, but for the money they should provide a dedicated jumper to film you. Instead you get the video from a hand-worn action camera. It is still good, but for the money they charge you really should get that for free, included in the standard package. The video would have been much better if shot by another jumper, like my first jump 13 years ago. Overall this was a great experience. A bit too expensive, jump + video + weight penalty brought the price to nearly $400, but still a once (or twice) in a lifetime experience.

An amazing experience! This was my first time jumping and to say the least I was very nervous. I was happy to be around people that kept it light hearted and fun, but I also could see that they were serious about safety. I felt very comfortable throughout the whole experience. I jumped tandem with Bob and he was wonderful! I could tell he was extremely experienced and made me feel less nervous as he was very knowledgeable, informative and was joking around to keep my spirits up and make me forget about my nerves. The jump itself was absolutely breathtaking!! A once in a lifetime experience that puts you on a high that lasts a long time after. I highly recommend Skydive Coastal Carolinas and I would definitely skydive with them if I ever go again!

The entire experience was awesome! Everyone at Skydive Coastal Carolinas contributes to your skydiving adventure. Tyler, Chris, and Thomas were our tandem jumpers for our group of 6. Their continued interaction and good nature calmed any anxiety that any of us may of had. The ride up, the jump, and the landing was flawless. Recommend getting the video so you can share your experience. Would definitely go again.

A wildly amazing experience that everyone should try at least once! I landed and wanted to go again and again...which has a lot to do with the great people working here. From the moment we arrived, I felt the staff's sense of calm and professionalism. My instructor, James, was especially kind, attentive, safe and helped me feel comfortable every step of the way. The other guys were spunky, cool and made sure we all had a great time. Free falling has to be the most exhilarating yet peaceful experience. Coasting over the ocean / coastal inlets by parachute is pure bliss. I would highly recommend jumping with Sky Dive Coastal Carolinas whenever you have the chance!

CHRIS IS AWESOME! My wife and I recently visited Skydive Coastal Carolina to celebrate my 60th and her 50th birthdays and we had a blast. I had Chris as my instructor, he is one of those unique individuals that really knows how to engage with a customer, give them confidence and feel relaxed to make the most of the experience. He was very informative, knowledgeable, answered our questions and happily shared his experiences. We had so much fun we went back the next day and did it all over again. I requested Chris as my instructor and he was happy to oblige, and he did not disappoint, another great jump.

I’ve been trying for a week now to find the “review words” that would even come close to describing our experience with Skydive Coastal Carolinas— Words fail me, so that’s when you truly know you’ve experienced the BEST with the BEST! Tandem Instructors, Tyler and Chris, explained, demonstrated, and practiced with me as many times as I needed until I felt ready to make that jump. Brandon, our pilot, was incredible! The facility, equipment, plane, and all that I observed were In excellent condition. Our videos and pictures exceptional! Everyone, from beginning to end, demonstrated excellent knowledge and professionalism, but treated us like family! Thank you, Brian, for encouraging me to go find my “Soul Reset”! We’ll be seeing you again...

This was my second time jumping with Skydive Coastal Carolinas and I can’t wait to do it again. The entire staff is incredible; funny, kind, and easy going. They were able to calm even my most nervous friends. As much as I love the people there, the view is what will continue to keep me as a return customer. Jumping out over the water ways makes for the most picturesque moments. BUT since you’re free falling out of a plane, your only option is to soak it all up in the moment. It’s breath taking. I recommend this facility to all my friends who even mention the word “skydiving”.
