I received a tandom jump for my birthday, oh boy.
I'm hooked. One of the most interesting things that I never expected was the atmosphere that is presented there, everyone and I mean everyone was very excited to see you have a great time.
I have now enrolled in the aff courses and up to jump #5 and every time I arrive and check in I get the same welcoming feeling as I did the first time we jumped. Very experienced instructors with a couple main goals: to make sure you stay safe and to relax and have fun. This is my drop zone!

A few corrections for what they wrote in the DZ description: altitude is no higher than 13,000 feet, prices are higher if not paying in cash and by e-mail they told me they're not open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Also, it would be nice if they offered smaller canopies for rent. Overall, very cool dropzone though

I recently finished AFF at a DZ up North and wanted to make a couple of fun jumps while visiting South Florida.

After reading the reviews here, I decided to make the longer trip to Clewiston even though I was staying in Miami...and I am glad I did. As a student, I am trying to get as much safe, solid instruction as possible. I made a few coached jumps over a couple of visits, and the instructors assigned to me (Smitty and Shiva) gave me great feedback. Some of the things they showed me have really helped me under canopy. Only negative is that after making a landing away from my assigned LZ (unplanned), some douche asked me why I landed on 'his' LZ (the swoop LZ), and while I resisted the urge to get all NYC on him, it still sticks in my memory. Try instructing instead of bitching next time, Superman - we are all newbs at one point. Not sure if he worked at the DZ or not, so I am not holding it against the place - great time, great staff, the DZ is good to go.

Another huge plus is that they have Freak'n Suits on site, which makes great suits for a bargain, so if you want a custom-made jumpsuit, you can get measured right there.

I completed my AFF course this summer up north in Pennsylvania and I took about 2 months off because of the winter. You can't jump as a student with high winds every day.

I extended a trip I had already planned in Florida hoping to get a couple jumps in and get back in the sky. This DZ was GREAT. All of the staff are extremely experienced and excited to teach. This was the best place I could have imagined to learn. I ended up completing my A-license requirements!

All the other jumpers I've met have been nice and have shared a ton of information. Just hanging around the DZ and asking questions has really increased my knowledge of the sport.

From the airplane you can see the massiveness of Lake Okeechobee. Its pretty cool. The DZ is surrounded by sugar can fields and its CRAZY FLAT. There's a real nice landing area and plenty of space.

I was also impressed with the tandem skydives they do. I didn't do any personally, but I witnessed a lot of people come in for them. I have to say that the staff provides a hell of a lot of customer service- including pre-tandem training and a logbook for the customers after the jump - I saw a lot of people become really interested in the sport. It was not just a rush tandem job to grab some money. I even saw some people go up for their 2nd and 3rd tandem in the same day.

I'm real glad I found this DZ. I know I have a long future ahead of me in this sport. I'm definitely gonna grab a flight from new york to come back down soon. JUMP HERE
