Sky's the Limit Skydiving Center (in northeast PA) is hosting a Boogie in the Bahamas's February 2-11 2018. Details in the facebook event ^^

MORE DETAILS TO COME:

I'm going to nickname this our SKYDIVERS ISLAND - since we will have our OWN private airstrip, our OWN skydiver only resort, our OWN clubhouse to use as our dz. They will also be putting on some sort of festival/parade to celebrate us midweek.

These are not shacks, tents, and scraps. This is Skydivers PARADISE. The resort rooms are beautiful and can be split between 4 people. The menu is being designed by us and will offer fantastic meals each day.

How's the SCUBA? I don't skydive anymore, but if you don't sell out your rooms I could be convinced to take a non-jumper spot.

The last time I went to the Bahama's my bf did a shark dive, he raved about it. Looks like there's a lot of places:

Organizers, discounted meal plan (if you are not registered you cannot use the resort meal plan), all transportation to/from your commercial flights and to/from dz/resort/landing area, goodie bag, t-shirt, super bowl party on the beach, and additional beach party. This is not a cheap boogie, we are creating a dropzone from scratch at a luxurious resort on the west end of the island which we are making exclusive to skydivers.
