      Absolutely phenomenal!!
      The team deserves an award because they did it again! I came back for my 5th jump with this company and with each jump comes with better experiences! This was my second jump with Mike (Sparkcools) and he made me absolutely comfortable with everything! The laughs and jokes we got to share in the plane, the flips we did when exiting the aircraft, and steering the parachute after it deployed! I even got to try and pull the parachute open when we were free falling which was an experience I will never forget!! Thank you so much Mike for the opportunity and I can’t wait to come back and learn more! 🤩 Trust me I highly recommend these people if you ever want to try skydiving! They will look after you and will make you feel absolutely comfortable! You will feel absolutely amazing afterwards and you will not regret it! 💕🪂

      Epic experience - if you haven’t tried this - do it.
      Thank you for the amazing experience. This was a 15 year long “to do” and I wish I’d been able to do it years ago. The whole team were fantastic even with an unavoidable two day delay (stupid winds). I felt excited but safe the whole way through right from The start of the briefing to the second we landed on the beach - and flipping out of a perfectly good airplane in mid air is an experience second to nothing I can describe!!! I will be back and super highly recommend if you’ve never jumped out of a plane before do it and do it with these guys. You won’t be disappointed!!!!! Contemplating throwing my other half out for his birthday but only if I can go too!!

      Perfect 1st skydive.
      So good! I did this as a celebration for my 50th year and I’m so glad I did. Bad weather meant having to Change the day/time a couple of times which they did with no problem. My fear was jumping through cloud (not jumping out of an aeroplane… go figure..!) and my pick of day/time gave me a perfect jump. Sam was an absolute diamond and made sure I felt relaxed and happy and kept me safe.

      Happy 60th birthday girl
      Gee that’s a tough question - so here goes - from the time the harness went on to the time it came off the whole experience was awesome, meeting Mike and Mardi, getting in the plane, watching the earth disappear, the ocean colours, the cloud, the cold, the first push, the tumble, the free fall, the jolt, steering the Shute, picking out family below, the 360, the landing all awesome not one bit was better than the other - challenge accepted challenge completed woot woo

    My partner and I has booked a tandem skydive with the full package. Unfortunately for us, this was cancelled due to the weather. We were told that our jumps were going to be put on hold. Understanding that this activity is totally weather dependant, we did expect an update the next day when the weather was actually good - even though we weren't told what "on hold" actually meant and the process that this would be. We ended up calling the company as we had checked the weather and we were informed that they were doing jumps inbetween showers. We felt really let down due to poor communication and us having to contact the company for updates, when surely we should have had the opportunity to do the jump on the next good day.

    My experience with Gold Coast Skydive was awesome. My hubby & I Dove last December 01,2020 to celebrate wedding anniversary and it really was worth it. Fantastic and unforgettable experience. My tandem Mike was absolutely funny and made the moment more fun and exciting. The whole team were awesome as well. We definitely recommend Gold Cost Skydive 👌🏼

    My wife organised a surprise Tandem dive for my birthday recently. It had never been something I was keen to do and I had I known beforehand may not have gone ahead with it.
    Anyway, how wrong I was. the entire process with check-in, safety process on the ground and making you feel at ease was fantastic.
    The flight on the way up was truly awesome looking at the Gold Coast from 10000 feet.
    Dion at the front counter and James my instructor were so accommodating and made my entire time so very enjoyable. The experience was something I will never forget and I can't speak highly enough of them. Thanks again.

    Absolutely amazing! Think I'm still in shock! Big shout out to the guys who took us for the skydive (Phil, Irish, Luke and Keith). 'Irish' took the video of one of our crew and can't believe how well it was taken...such a professional. Recommend to anybody who's keen to throw themselves out of a plane at 12,000 ft! Cheers...Gary, Benjamin, Julian and Darcy

    What an awesome experience. Everything about the jump was fantastic. From the time we arrived the whole team were very professional. Their communication and enthusiasm was outstanding. They know how to build the excitement and keep you calm at the same time. Can not recommend them highly enough. Highly recommend the video package as the jump is over before you know it and watching the video now gives another aspect of a memorable experience.

    From the time we arrived till the time we left the team at Gold Coast Skydive made us feel welcome, safe, valued and excited for us to be there.
    All staff were professional and put any of our anxieties at ease.
    Every step of the skydive was explained.
    Highly recommend and will definitely be back.

    I had such an amazing experience with Gold coast skydive.James was my instructor and he was very professional but not to serious. He had a great scence of humor and was a laugh when watching back the video. This was my first jump and I didn't feel nervous at all, I only felt excitement.

    I highly recommend this company, through and through from start to finish, customer service was on point.

    I'll be back soon 😎

    Mike and Sam were our hilarious and chilled tandem guides who brought us from free-fall to the glided beach-landing. Absolutely a great experience. I would recommend the skydive to anybody seeking a quick thrill for their day on the Gold Coast.
