What a day, what a buzz. An experience everybody has to have!!
Fantastic instructors, very friendly and professional approach to safety and training.
My tandem jump instructor was Martin, great bloke. He talked through everything as it happened on the way up (very confidence inspiring) and great chat on the way down. Get there as early as you can! First come first served.
IT HAS TO BE DONE!!!

Doing this for an amazing charity close to my heart.
Cancer Research.
First class training , felt in safe hands all the time.
A little disappointed this was my third visit to jump but that's the English weather for you.
Even more disappointed to find out had to pay an additional £50 to be re-trained but that's there policy
First class guys (Mark especially ) many thanks for taken me up and giving an amazing experience
Would I do it again with them
Yes yes yes
Thanks guys

It was my first time doing a skydive on June 28th I was really nervous but super excited the professional skydivers were fantastic particularly Dave, he did the jump with me and was really good at making me as calm as possible haha and talking me through what was happening. The view was breathtaking and the skydive was fantastic. Definitely would go back!!! This place is fantastic!
