I love how hyped up they get you to do the jump! Honestly the most supportive bunch of people I’ve met! 10/10 would do it again. I jumped with Jordan and he was awesome throughout the whole thing 😁

What an amazing experience! This was one of the best things i have ever done. Standing on the edge of a helicopter looking over the city and banks peninsula at 10000 feet is breathtaking. Then jumping off into freefall is just incredible, words cannot describe!! I jumped with Lee who was the perfect mix of adrenaline junky and professional skydiving instructor. The whole crew and experience was epic from start to finish. Highly recommended

I would like to thank Lee most importantly for making me feel so comfortable and at ease even though I wasn't nervous at all, the team were great. I definitely can say I had the best experience, would go again and I definitely recommend it to anybody crazy enough to take a leap of faith!

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!
