It is difficult to find words to describe this amazing experience - it has been longtime on my bucket list and now I finally made!

Hi Bina, we're very proud to tell you that you're right. When we get costumers that have jumped in other drop zones before, we always ask them where is the most beautiful place so far, and we always win! More

Every review you will read about this group is true! From Jaggs who drove us to the drop zone with a photo stop on the way to Mike at the actual area and my tandem partner Ollie! I don't recall the woman's name also at the drop zone but she too was very nice and took some pics of me... More

Although this was the 4th time I was thrown out of a plane I always get that crazy bout of nerves, although the drive to Glenorchy ( which is the most beautiful scenic drive I've ever been on) certainly proved to be a good distraction. Our knowledgeable driver guide Jaggs had plenty of awesome information on the 45 minute trip... More

To celebrate my father's 50th, my brother, father and I made the 15,000ft jump while on holiday in early Jan. My tandem handler gave off confidence in waves. By the time we were at the top, banter with him had shaken off most of my nervousness. He’d made several thousand jumps and I was confident I wasn't going to be... More

I totally respected the weight limit that Skydive Paradise implemented, in fact it made me feel more at ease knowing they are strict with their safety rules. At the end of the day you are strapped to a man who needs to be able to take all your weight, it just makes sense that a limit has to be put... More

Skydive Paradise was sensational all the way. The staff are all so helpful and friendly, and really put you at ease. Two of us went for our first skydive and we couldn't fault it. I got motion sickness during the dive, but the view and the experience itself was well worth it! The weather was perfect so the whole trip... More
