Dropzones in Hawaii Can't Post

Hi there!
I usually don't get on here very much but I need some help. My older sister, who has done a couple of tandems, and I are going to Oahu in September. She definitely wants to do another tandem while we are there because I told her how gorgeous it was since I have been to Hawaii before. I was just wondering if anyone has jumped on Oahu and has any pointers that I can forward to my sister.
Thanks!

Skydive Hawaii and Pacific Skydiving are both on Oahu, both at the same airfield...
I haven't jumped at Skydive Hawaii, but did jump at Pacific.. I think Skydive Hawaii puts the tandems out first, at a lower altitude, but I'm not positive on this.
Pacific takes tandems all the way up and puts them out after the fun jumpers...

I live and jump on Oahu... Pacific Skydive. I actually jump at both companies, but primarily at Pacific. If you're looking for altitude and a FULL 60 seconds of freefall, then it's a no-brainer... Pacific Skydive Center. You'll go ALL THE WAY to 14K. At Hawaii, tandems typically get out at 10K. However, both companies have very experienced TMs.

Thanks for your help; I think that we will be going to Pacific Skydive. I know that she has done her tandems at Perris Valley since she lives in L.A. and I think that they go to 13000. Since she has been to 13,000, I am guessing she will want to do that again or close to it.
Thanks so much for you help and will be seeing you in September :)

When my brother and I jumped there in 2004, we jumped at Pacific and we got between 14000 and 15000 every jump.

I love Skydive Hawaii http://www.hawaiiskydiving.com/.

I'm doing AFF at SDH and have been treated so wonderfully by the owners, TM's, Instructors and ALL of their staff. Truly a kind and caring skydiving company Smile
