Just completed my first tandem skydive at this centre. Was the most amazing experience of my life. I was a little worried at first about plummeting to my death but the skydive instructors are all really nice and help you feel excited and at ease with the whole experience. The facilities have everything you need but make sure you plan to be there the whole day. The food was reasonably priced and we had no problems at all with feeling comfortable within the area. I opted for the video which I was allocated Simon for the job. He was fantastic and the photographs I have received are amazing. My tandem instructor dave was fab. He knew what he was doing and also made me feel comfortable straight away with light hearted jokes. He was passionate about his job which made the whole experience loads better. I hope I get the opportunity to do this again. Amazing feeling. Not as scary as I thought it would be. Choose this place as it's fab!

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!!!
