This place is the perfect place to go to when you are looking to Skydive. Instructors are personable and friendly, and make me feel really comfortable for my first skydive experience. Video is a must get, especially if it is your first time going. Thanks Rob for the support! Can't wait to go back.

In the event of zombie apocalypse I would choose Gerry the instructor to be my side! He's one chilled out dude and probably has the best job in the world.

We were incredibly lucky to have been able to complete this jump, as the wind started picking up while in our ascent... we ended up being the first and last jump of the day... We were a group of three, and the expected nerves were on edge from early on... We were each assigned a tandem guide, who talked us... More

My first jump today - it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life! The team was very professional & just such an incredibly nice bunch of human beings! Cape Town looked beautiful from above. The R650 video/ photo package turned out to be priceless - so happy to have captured those moments. I would recommend to everyone!
