“Great Place, Great People”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Just went to the Cinco de Mayo boogie at Orange. My husband jumps there any chance he gets, and I decided to do my 2nd tandem while we were there. It was so much fun, everyone is so friendly and the staff knows their stuff. I had the pleasure of jumping out of the skyvan that was there for the weekend with Mario as my instructor. He was awesome, funny, and made me feel at ease! Scenery is beautiful and I was so glad I decided to jump! PS get video!!

“Excellent Tandem Experience”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

I made my 2nd tandem jump here June 1, 2013. I had been somewhere else before and done a tandem skydive. But it was nothing compared to Skydive Orange.

Skydive Orange is a professional atmosphere where no question is a stupid question - and they have the best videographers who make you look awesome!

13,500 feet above the ground, falling at 120mph and an incredible view under canopy.

I loved it so much I got my license at Skydive Orange and now call that my home DZ!

“Mon anniversaire ”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Excellent, excellent, excellent!
Ça vaut vraiment la peine d'y aller.
It worth the trip and I recommend it to anybody. The facility, the staff, the jump.
October 19 was the day I was supposed to jump. We boarded the aircraft and we took off, the weather was not clement and we landed back. We waited over an hour and realized the sky was not going to clear. The staff recommended us for the next day which happen to be great.
In the video, there was a mismatch but skydive orange took care of it and mailed me a revised DVD and I got a shirt.
All the people with me were very pleased and I would recommend this place to anybody interested in skydiving.
The place is safe, the staff was pleasant and very professional.

“Great Skydiving experience”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I took my daughter here so her and I could skydive for her 20th Birthday. It was a great experience. They were very professional and performed many safety checks and had you watch a video prior to getting suited up. The experience was awesome. I hadn't seen my now non-teenage daughter this excited in a long time. Show was on her "jump high" all weekend. Great Job!!!
