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!

Awesome Group Drop Zone

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: jack1984 on 2015-05-29

Pros: Great Staff and Vibe
Cons: no cons

I am active duty military and have been for 13 years. I set up a group of 89 service members to jump over 24 hours. The drop zone made it simple and had transportation in the requested location at the requested time and all the staff was very friendly and the drop zone had a great vibe. Everyone that was there was open to all the Newbie skydiving questions and was all smiles and laughs and good times. I highly recommend this drop zone if jumping in Hawaii.

thankful to jump

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 4 by: Jumpmaster173D on 2014-11-13

Pros: Great veiw, nice pilot, allows solo jumpers
Cons: Cost $25 if you go or not,

Found only one regular that when he talked to me I didn't feel like a burden for being there. Very nice desk crew. Dz is small so be good under canopy. Overall if the "jumping employees" would have been more friendly and personable this place would blow skydiver Hawaii out of the water.

Licensed jumper lied to

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 1 by: bcmoore80 on 2013-12-30

Pros: none
Cons: liars and crooks

Called weeks ahead to confirm that I could do a recurrancy jump, arrived with license and log book and told no. Decided to do a tandem with my friends, guaranteed to 14k. Bullshit, after I had sat there for almost 3 hours they announced no 14k due to weather, what a load of shit! People who arrived on the shuttle got to jump before us, their organization is horrible and the staff are unfriendly.

One of the Best Experiences Ever!

Pacific Skydiving Center Rated 5 by: ChuanShi on 2013-06-07

Pros: Professional and Very Knowledgeable Staff; Incredibly Fun; Absolutely Gorgeous Views; Top Priority: Safety; Life-Changin
Cons: Very Popular - Which Makes for Some Big Crowds at Times.

My sister and brother-in-law came to visit me and wanted to go skydiving, and we chose Pacific Skydiving due to their perfect safety record, "ultimate tandem" option, and the price (most bang for your buck). I also brought along one of my friends, making us a group of four. It was an absolutely amazing experience for all of us, and I ended up getting sucked right into this incredible sport. Even my sister, who was initially terrified, ended up having an amazing experience thanks to the top-level professionalism demonstrated by the tandem masters.

I ended up going back shortly thereafter and signed up for AFF. Because a short ground school course and two TAFF (tandem) jumps are required prior to taking the first-jump course and starting the classic AFF instruction (something I really liked because of how it gives the students a jump start on AFF and greatly enhances overall safety), I had the opportunity to meet and jump with two more members of the staff who were both outstanding: I found them to be very professional, knowledgeable, fun, and encouraging. Unlike some people who say that they find some DZs to be stand-offish, I found everyone at Pacific Skydiving to be positive and accepting - they certainly welcomed, embraced, and helped me any way they could right from the beginning, and I am most appreciative of this genuine Aloha.

The impression I received from everyone there was that they truly love the sport and art of skydiving, had a sincere desire to introduce others to skydiving by giving them a very positive experience that they will always remember, and that they are sincerely genuine: keep it real and be cool with them, and you will get all that and more in return. They are no-nonsense when it comes to safety, which (of course) is absolutely essential and should definitely be expected. I particularly liked how everyone was looking out for each other - something that became apparent very early on. The combination of great personality and professionalism made the whole experience one of the best ever.

It should be noted that Pacific Skydiving is very popular, and that a lot of tourists like to go there - after all, skydiving over Hawaii is very unique. With this comes some big crowds and some relatively long waits - not all the time, but definitely at certain times. We planned accordingly and ended up not having to wait at all; we showed up, were given a safety briefing, filled out paperwork, were hooked up with gear, and were soon in awe of the spectacular scenery 14,000 feet above Oahu. I did notice, however, that some people (all tourists so far as I could tell) expected just to show up with crappy attitudes and be treated like royalty. In all honesty, this was about the only negative thing that I encountered, and it was no fault of the DZ. In fact, I was pretty impressed by the level of patience demonstrated by the staff in these trying situations. So while my respect for the staff increased as a result, I was a bit disappointed that some customers had to bring the vibe down for the whole place with their disrespect. My advice is to plan wisely, show up early, and try to embrace every moment that you're there by reminding yourself that this is a very unique adventure that you are about to embark upon. If this is done, I don't think it's a too much of a stretch to say that you are very likely to have a life-changing experience.
