This place has skydiving down to a science. They pump people through like a factory. So they know what they're doing, but there's no sort of personal connection with your instructor. What annoyed me about this place is that we were booked for 10am, and the night before they asked us if we could come earlier in the morning. We agreed on 830, but once we got there they had us waiting around for an hour!! Nothing got going until 930am. Everyone was being herded like cattle, and I didn't like that. They also tried to continually upsell you. The check in ladies want you to pay more for a higher jump, then they want you to pay $200+ for A PHOTO of you in the air!!! The actual jump was great, it was just the before and after that rubbed me the wrong way.

Hello,

We always go out of our way to re-book our customers the night before if we know there is bad weather coming, as we want to optimise good weather windows which increase your chance of jumping.

The whole skydiving process takes up to three hours. This allows us time to check in customers, determine loads by heights and camera options, and configure a safe weight and balance for the aircraft.

Our camera packages begin with $199 camera option which includes over 40 photos and a video of your whole experience, not just a photo, as you said.

We will definitely take the rest of your feedback on board, as we pride ourselves on our professional and friendly customer service. I'm really sorry you didn't receive that service when you jumped with us.

I'm really glad you enjoyed your jump however.

Many thanks for your feedback.

Phoebe.

I was so scared when I arrived at the skydive centre but the pep talks given by my instructor "kerk" really alleviated all my fears. The best part of the dive was the free fall and thank God we took 12000 feet dive as it gave us the opportunity to see the so beautiful scenery all around us. With such nice weather and no delays I think you guys are the best centre for skydiving. And I would definitely recommend kerk to be your instructor.... thanks a lot guys
