I did my jump with Andrew Godfrey who made the whole thing great fun. The entire place is professional, safe and most importantly, amazing. Well worth the trip and the money.

Hi, I really enjoyed the experience of skydiving and it became more enjoyable because Craig is such a friendly person and he is even willing to teach how to control the parachute. I definitely going to go for the legend level next time for sure!...More

My second time trying tandem skydiving and I am so glad I went for the 15,000-foot dive - amazing free fall experience. My instructor and the cameraman were also very professional and helpful, made my experience so much more worthwhile.

Absolutely amazing, TTS were an amazing company to jump with, made sure we got to jump even though the weather had started to turn. My dive master, Ian Thompkinson was great, not much of a talker but hummed songs on the parachute down! Very experienced!...More
