All of the staff were just lovely - friendly and attentive. My instructor, Matt, was absolutely ideal - encouraging and informative, making me feel at ease... More

My wife did a tandem skydive and they offered a great service. Ben, her skydive professional was great. She thoroughly enjoyed the experience and was buzzing at the end of it. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Our first skydive--a bucket list event. Stellar organization that embued confidence from the registration desk through the outfitting and then the jump master for each of us. Mine was Ben from Colorado who had a minor in psychology so that I am sure he was perfect for the 20 something dude or dudette to me--a 60 year (going on 30)... More

First time skydiving for me. It's normal to be nervous before, but the staff was kind and they took most of the nervosity. The hosts are really experienced and know what they do.

I still feel speechless and not touching ground yet! I took the 16500 feet and felt a bit worried about the oxygen thing but that's not to be stressed about, you can breathe normally!
