Professional staff and that helps you to one of the best days in your life! 👌👍 I did it from the height of 16k feet which is the one I recommend. A thing like this, you should go all in.

The skydive itself is worth the experience. The instructors and the camera man was awesome. However, there had been a problem with the video editing. The sounds turned out to have a bit of noise while one of my friend's photo was not included but was later sent thru dropbox. Some of my friend's video had to be sent back... More

Arrived as part of a group tour (Haka Tours) on 23rd February and elected to do the 16,500ft jump with the full video package. I Jumped with 'DM' (according to the video - a long time ago and I...

The staff was friendly, especially the shuttle driver, and helpful. I felt very safe and since I jumped during low season, I did not feel rushed. My tandem master had... More
