Skydiving was something I had dreamt of doing for a long time- finally got the chance this year and am I glad I chose Skydive Orange as the people to do it with.
The team at Skydive Orange were very professional in their approach and I was impressed by the emphasis on safety, the multiple checks done before the dive and the experience of the instructors. My tandem jump instructor was Mario and he made me feel at ease about the jump even though I was extremely nervous.
The video though expensive was well worth it- I have re lived the experience everytime I share it with friends & family (thanks to Leiber for the great photographs!)
Only drawback is the wait time - though we had been warned about it- keep plenty of time on hand!
An amazing experience and well worth it- am definitely going to do it again!
