Hands down the best thing I've ever done to date! Was lucky enough to have Prashant as my instructor for the tandem skydive. He communicated instructions clearly, and reiterated those steps several times to ensure I understood what to do. He is very friendly and approachable which makes it easy to ask him questions and yarn with him. Also, most importantly he makes the whole experience comfortable and enjoyable with his humor. Overall I loved the experience and appreciated everyone involved. Thanks to my mate Jaden for co-ordinating this wicked day, definitely lived up to the hype. Was such a good buzz I'm even considering going solo one day...!

Most exhilarating experience I have had. From the moment of booking Skydive BOI has exceeded expectations. After completing a tandem jump and getting to know the team. I knew I wanted to get out in the air by myself. The whole team has definitely made this a year to remember -cheers
