This helidive from 10,000 ft was one of the highlights of my life. The team were all so professional and friendly, I felt completely safe throughout the dive with Lee and would love to do it again some time. Exhilarating, mind-blowing, awesome - a wonderful experience!

My friend and I skydived with Ben, and had the best time!!! They were knowledgable and made the trip fun and helped calm our nerves. The dive was thrilling and unforgettable. We were the last group of the day at 6pm, so we got to see the start of the sunset, which was absolutely stunning especially for first-timers. The video editing was amazing and really captured the individual rides. They also were extremely hospitable and when we couldn't find a shuttle back they offered to give us and another couple a ride home. Definitely would recommend to anyone considering going skydiving!!!

Great morning watching my just turned (the week before her jump)12yr old daughter. Staff are amazing and make you feel very relaxed. Very upbeat and encouraging. My daughter loved it, a little nervous to start, but very comfortable with her jump buddy and smiled all the way. Will definitely be going back!

I had such a thrilling skydive, should have done it earlier than waiting till I was 63. My Grand-daughter Shikayla Hutchinson turned 16, we went to watch her jump, which she throughly enjoyed and wanted to do it again. Thanks so much we will be back. Peter
