The skydiving experience itself was good. Our instructor Tats was excellent. However, we were stuck there for 3 hrs after our jump with no services, not even water or wifi. The only chance to get gas station food was at 1:15. They make you pay...More

An absolutely amazing experience. We chose tandem cairns after it being recommended by our hotel concierge. We were picked up promptly but once we arrived at the “drop zone” we were waiting around for a few hours before our jump. There’s no tea or coffee...More
