Firstly this is VERY EXPENSIVE. You have to pay extra to do the dive on a weekend (fair enough I assume they pay the instructors extra for working the weekend) but then they also hit you with an extra charge for your video and photography package- because its the weekend. No, they don't have a dedicated photographer jumping out of the plane- the instructor (that is strapped to you) videos it using a wrist mounted go-pro. I thought the videos and photos were alright but for the $159 I paid for them- I expected someone jumping out of the plane to film it. And just incase you are thinking that is okay I'll take my own and do it myself- you can't do that either unless you have a license. Also you don't really jump over the water, it was more on the land side which was not really what I wanted- i would have prefered it more over the water.

But on the positive side, it was a great view from 14000ft, the 1 minute free fall was awesome and you're high on the adrenalin when the chute opens, then after the adrenalin wears off its a nice leisurely cruise down to land on the beach.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback, glad to hear you had a great jump. Our DVD and photo packages are advertised as handicam (ie. no outside camera at this location), and it's a fabulous product - the proof is in your amazing profile pic!

Thrilled to hear you loved the beach landing and the pure adrenalin that a skydive at such a stunning location provides.

Hope to see you up in the skies again soon!
