"It was a wonderful time. My only negative was that it was busy and it was hard to know when you were called --- especially if you returned to the car to put stuff away and people were called."
"This was a wonderful experience from the first phone call to the end. I lost my confirmation email because I booked many months ahead, but it was simple to have it resent and worked through. Both my husband and I enjoyed our jumps and were very pleased with our instructors. My instructor was Roberto, and he made my experience really fun and helped me remain calm. Super great guy!"
"Johnny Minos was my skydive instructor. He was amazing and made the experience all the more worth it. I would not hesitate to do this again and to jump with him."
