Best experience of my life! Great for first time skydivers. Pick-up arrived early at our hotel. The instructors were great and everyone was super friendly. The picture and video package was worth the extra money and the photos came out great. Will 100% do again.

Huge adrenaline rush whilst feeling totally safe. The staff are very professional, with clear instructions re what to expect and to do. The free fall is surreal, the parachuting down afterwards fun.

I guess every skydive is a experience never to forget. Very friendly and funny staff. They make sure you are comfortable and ready to jump with clear instructions. Also really cool video and pictures of your jump.
