Instructor Santi was great, funny, and informative. He made the tandem jump experience relaxing and enjoyable! He helped me (a first time jumper) laugh off some of the nerves with his sense of humor. Would definitely jump again!

First skydive and it was an INCREDIBLE experience! My tandem instructor, Alex Hart, was really good- his manner made me feel at ease, like jumping out of a plane was a normal everyday activity. The jump was beautiful and I felt safe the entire time. I would recommend Start Skydiving without hesitation!

We had an amazing time! We did the tandem jump and Josue was my jumper. He was confident and calm and he had the perfect personality that I needed to calm my own nerves. We purchased the hand cam package and I highly recommend this as well. Especially if it is your first jump or a meaningful jump. They made a little video out of it with a pre and post short interview, and got video of the plane ride, the free fall, and going down in the parachute. The jump goes by so fast and in a blur so I am happy I had the video to show the whole jump. All the staff we had an encounter with was great. Everyone was very helpful, approachable, and friendly. Thank you Start Skydiving for making our experience so special! I am excited to plan my next jump!
