Good Fun Jumper Location With Rides to 14k and Above.

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: 20_kN on 2018-01-08

Pros: Solid DZO, good staff and instructors, one of two places in Hawaii that allows fun jumpers, virtually always goes to 14k
Cons: High winds, limited outs, close water hazzards, tons of tandems, limited fun jumpers

I completed my AFF course here and was pretty satisfied with it. Up until a few months ago, Pacific was the only place in Hawaii that allowed fun jumpers and AFF students. The other DZs in the state typically do not allow fun jumpers unless you happen to know the staff and so in essence tandems are really the only business mode in Hawaii. Fortunately Pacific is nice enough to break that model a bit by allowing the locals visiting jumpers to do some fun jumps.

Glad I chose Pacific

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 3 by: missjennshaw on 2017-01-19

Pros: views, views and more views, plenty of loads in a day, altitude
Cons: major tourist attraction

I had my first jump ever with Pacific -- a long awaited dream come true to jump in paradise. The crew at Pacific was great, all things considered. With it being such a tourist destination and attraction, I think they have their hands full with non-english speakers and true one-timers from around the world, so it feels a little like an in/out factory where I anticipate other DZ to feel a little more familial and willing to help someone join the sport. Of the two places in all of Hawai'i, I can't compare, but I'm certainly glad I chose them.

1st skydiving experience

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 2 by: Barbiemedic529 on 2017-01-14

Pros: The view
Cons: Customer service, professionalism and attitude

I have never felt so disappointed in an experience. This was my first time ever skydiving and I was so excited to capture the whole thing! My instructor literally put me in an harness and then sat down on his phone while
Everyone else for pictures taken pre jump! I blew this off and thought it would get better. In his defense he did take some aerial shots but none prior or after and no where did he get the cool shots that showed all the beautiful ocean I was falling over top off. When we sat down to look at the pictures I was so mortified, the pictures he did take were half assed and horrible. My first jump was not even documented to where I could look back and have awesome memories. The manager pretended to care in a very patronizing way and then told me I had to pay anyways because it's in a contract. I literally walked away so upset. I don't think anyone should here. This was such horrible customer experience. I would go somewhere else that will make sure you make amazing memories. Customer service is key and this place is all about the money.

Only fun-jump option in HI, worth the trip

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 4 by: fredmm on 2016-12-13

Pros: Scenery, good people
Cons: Waits, packing mat

I'd heard mixed things about Pacific, but ended up with a great experience. They are admittedly tandem focused, but I got 3 jumps in, and could have made 4 or 5 if I had packed a bit faster and stayed a bit later. I don't know what the norm is, but we even got a full funjumper load up. Get there early - before sunrise early. Good people, relaxed vibe. It's a bit of a drive, but the scenery is great. Facilities are decent, though packing mats were a bit damp, particularly early in the day.

Sad little Tandem factory!!!! Don't waste your time

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 1 by: g00nbAg on 2015-07-01

Pros: Can't say... Location maybe?
Cons: Bad vibe, dropzone staff all miserable

It's very funny that I've logged on to leave a review about this DZ and seen someone below has left a review almost identical to what I'm about to write!

I came to Hawaii on vacation and brought my current log books, licence, worldwide comprehensive insurance papers. Emailed and called the dropzone a couple of weeks before arriving in Hawaii and was told they accept fun jumpers and have equipment rental.
I was staying on Maui island and had to fly over to Oahu island to visit the DZ, dragging my wife along with me because she knows how much I love the sport.

When we arrived I was greeted by numerous staff that didn't know what was going on and were only concerned with the bus loads of tandems arriving at the DZ by the minute.

After been given the run around for about 30 minutes I was told by a moody instructor I can't jump.

I was very disappointed, so I spoke to the DZ owner/manager and he has got to be the biggest asshole I've ever met in my life, very rude and dismissive little old man. He gave me hope that I would be allowed to jump, made me sit around waiting for 2 hours till the DZ got a little less busy with tandems, then changed his mind and told me no!

Almost everyone at this dropzone was moody and I can't understand why??? The location is so amazingly beautiful and I can only imagine how stunning it would look up at 14k ft.
I've never been to a DZ and seen so many negative faces!
