I got my husband sky diving for his 30th birthday and we went together today (June 23, 2014). Got a great deal through Groupon and Amazon Local. I was really nervous! But I'm so glad I went. Jump Florida is a tiny little place but that didn't bother me. I would say that for bigger groups, it might not be the fastest way to go because there is only room for the pilot plus four in the plane (that includes the instructors). I jumped with Pascal (not sure how to spell) who was cracking jokes at just the right moments and made me feel totally at ease. He's been doing this for 14 years! Hubby jumped with Dave. Both instructors were very professional and obviously knew what they were doing. They were very relaxed and made me feel relaxed as well. I get motion sickness so I took a Dramamine, but I should've taken it sooner because I waited until the instructors started putting us in the harness and we were in the plane in less than 15 minutes after that. Luckily, I didn't get any feelings of nausea until after we finished the drop, but if you're like me be sure to take your Dramamine at least 30 minutes prior to getting in the plane. It was nice and cozy in the tiny little Cessna, and something about that made it a little less nerve wracking. The jump was so thrilling, like nothing else I've ever experienced. The free fall was definitely the best part. Once the parachute was up, Pascal asked if I wanted to do spins, and in hindsight I probably should've said no! It was fun, but I think that's what later made me a little nauseated in the car on the drive home. The instructors definitely won't do anything you don't want them to do. He landed us perfectly, and it was such an amazing time. Hubby said it was the best present he'd ever gotten.
We did get rescheduled a couple times (once for bad weather and once for plane maintenance) but obviously they can't help the weather. And I'm glad to know they are taking care of their planes! Everyone there was very nice and helpful.
