This is my second time Tandem Skydiving (first being near Toronto) and obviously the view of Hawaii is hard to beat! My friends and I chose the 14000ft drop (longer free fall). I booked the earliest possible time because I read on other reviews of the wait time that can happen. (We waited a bit, mostly to have more favourable jump conditions ie. weather). I truly believe that your safety comes first at this facility. (My friend weighed over the 240lb maximum and denied him the jump. Although, I will say that having the scale in front of everyone is a little disconcerting.) My friends and I opted for the pictures and video (I decided not to get them the first time skydiving and totally regretted it). I know that this option is pricey, but hey most of us are only going to do this once in our lives (just to cross off your bucket list)! My instructor and cameraman weren't much on the entertaining side. (With my first skydive, the instructor was quite funny and made the experience that much more enjoyable.) But, the instructor was probably the most experienced jumper there (especially when you jump and land barefoot!) Always grateful to land uninjured and alive...so can't really complain. My friends' instructors and cameramen were very funny and made my friends' a bit more relaxed. I will say that I was extremely nauseous with this second jump (I figure it was because of the wind and the rapid turns we made to get us quickly aligned with the landing site...not really the fault of the instructors.) My friends were also nauseous as well. One threw up in the washroom and the other (as well as myself) did some dry heaving...but soon after felt much better! My friends and I will never ever forget this experience, just as it should be! TIP: There is a long questionnaire/waiver (about 7 pages long) that you must fill out on their laptop. Make sure to bring ID with you, eg. passport or driver's licence, and full contact information for 2 emergency contacts (eg. full mailing address and phone numbers). I almost got stumped by these.
