“Get ready for LIFELONG memories!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I purchased a tandem skydive package from Groupon for this company, and unfortunately for me I never looked at the address because they were located FOUR HOURS south of my home! Well, I just went with it anyway and let me tell you-- I'm already wanting to drive the four hours again so I can go a second time! First of all, the staff were amazing and incredibly funny. My instructor was Kazoo (spelling?) and he was very welcoming, relaxed, and he even talked to our group about medical stuff (we all work in a hospital). One thing you should know if you are going in a group: only TWO jumpers can go at a time! So, if you have an odd number of people, someone has to jump with a stranger. This kind of sucked for us because we had a group of three people, but at the same time we were given the opportunity to stand on the ground and take pictures of our other friend while she jumped and landed on the ground. The flight up takes approx 20 minutes, you free fall for 50 seconds, and then YOU get to pull the parachute cord and you parachute down for 5-9 minutes. The scenery is gorgeous, and the whole time throughout this experience the guys are "secretly," video taping you. When I saw my video, I HAD to purchase it because they did such a good job of highlighting all the great moments. Did I mention they use a GoPro for all of their pictures? I have had MULTIPLE friends show me their pictures from Skydiving places near my home, and the quality of Skydive Air Adventures' pictures are SO much better! I cannot recommend this place enough. I'm already trying to find a reason to drive to Clewiston again just so I can jump with these fellas.

“Serious Adrenline Adventure”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is definitely worth a trip up Hwy 27 to Clewiston. Friendly staff, welcoming environment, and some kick-butt fun. If you've never done skydiving, this is the place to start. If you've done it in the past, this is the best place to do it again.

“Great place, really relaxed and very welcoming”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We rocked up at this place without even planning or scheduling anything, just saw it on the google maps and thought hey lets see whats happening there. We walked in the door and were immediately greeted by the really friendly crowd, who told us that a jump plane was leaving in a few minutes and my friend could go up for a tandem. Ten minutes later my friend was on the plane and en-route to 12,000ft, and 30 minutes later was back on the ground with a grin from ear to ear.
The ground crew took me out on the golf buggies to meet the guys landing, and just went out of their way to make you feel welcomed.
They put together a great video, and even posted it online so you could link it into your facebook.

I would definately recommend here for a tandem or a skydiving holiday. Whilst they had a very relaxed attitude, the safety aspects all seemed to be done properly.

“Breathtaking Views and Fantastic Crew!”
Reviewed October 5, 2010

Skydive Air Adventures is at the Air Glades airport. The people there are extremely friendly and upbeat. They were professional and explain how everything works so you feel secure and excited about your dive. Lisa and Rick are the owners and very down to earth. The ride up is great. The plane takes you over sugar cane fields, orange groves, and Lake Okeechobee. You can also see the Gulf of Mexico. At 14,000 feet you hop out and enjoy the rush and the views even more! Clewiston was located in the center of Southern Florida. It was only a little over an hour from Fort Lauderdale. It is probably about the same distance from the gulf as well. Definitely a great day trip to come out and fly!
