Great first time experience

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: cindytodd on 2015-07-22

Pros: Great Atmosphere, felt so comfortable.
Cons: Can't really say there was any

This was THE BEST first time experience for skydiving. Matt Harvey (Tandem partner) made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. I had nothing to worry about. I was prepared and everybody seemed to be happy and having a good time. I highly recommend for anybody that has ever wanted to skydive to book this place. It was such a fantastic time!

Amazing first experience skydiving!

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: meanders on 2015-07-22

Pros: Friendliness and comfortability of staff!
Cons: none at all

This was my first time ever skydiving and I had Alex Hart as my instructor. Everyone at the facility went out of their way to be friendly and informative.
Alex made it a great time for me. I was definitely way out of my comfort zone at first, but by the end I could have done it over 100 times.

Great place for first timers and experienced jumpers

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: Hannahjacks on 2015-07-17

Pros: Friendly Staff, very easy process
Cons: None!

It was my first time skydiving today and Matt Harvey was my instructor. He made the process very easy and really made sure that I knew what to do. He was also very personable and I was never nervous about the jump because everyone there seems to love their job and what they do. The ride up was also fun! And Paola was the videographer, and she was awesome too! She stayed with us and made sure she got all of the best moments. I would definitely go again!
