Friendly and cozy Cessna dropzone

Skydive Southwest Florida Rated 5 by: twspahn on 2015-02-02

Pros: Great people!!!
Cons: C182 only

I dropped by this DZ while vacationing in the area and enjoyed a very pleasant day. The staff and fun jumpers were fantastic people, who immediately invited me to join them for some great 4-ways. Thanks Tyler, Marty, Tom & Peg!! They only fly a 182 but got us to 13,000' for each jump. I'll definitely return when I'm back in the area and would recommend anyone to check it out.

Great Dropzone

Skydive Southwest Florida Rated 5 by: jhale1800 on 2009-03-09

Pros: Friendly, great view of the Gulf
Cons: N/A

All of the staff were very friendly and cautious. I recently got off AFF at a different dropzone and wanted to jump while I was in the area. They made sure I was prepared by going over everything I needed to know about the particulars of the dropzone and jumping their student canopy. I would recommend this dropzone to anybody. Thanks Roy, Anne, John, and Scott

Awesome place to go!

Fun friendly atmosphere with turbine lift capacity.

Skydive Southwest Florida Rated 4 by: Superfletch on 2008-01-30

Pros: Convenient Location, Great Vibes, Comfortable Atmosphere
Cons: Not a lot of amenities

I recently visited this dropzone and found it to be a refreshing change from the typical LARGE Florida dropzone. The staff and jumpers were very friendly giving it that midwest cessna dropzone feel.The grand caravan was very nice.Most of the jumpers were fairly low timers in the 200-400 jump range but they were all eager and it won't be for long before there is a wealth of experience bouncing around.There wasn't a lot in the way of facilities but they had covered packing with good ventilation and a comfortable place to rest when you weren't jumping.I would highly recommend that if you are in the area for you to stop on by and give them a chance.I'm sure you'll have just as nice a time as I did.
