My fiancé and I went the first weekend of march, it had been raining all of Friday and Saturday morning until we arrived at the meeting point. I was so disappointed because I thought we were going to miss out but the pilots checked the weather and safety and gave the all clear! Though it was cloudy they were 100%... More
