I went skydiving today here in Aruba for the first time ever. I never thought I would ever go skydiving! It was an absolutely amazing experience. The wind was not an issue at all and the landing was smooth as silk. I felt 100% safe, comfortable, and relaxed from the very beginning until the end. I too thought $250.00 was expensive but after doing the tandem jump today it was worth every penney and more!! The instructors are fabulous-especially John. Do yourself a favor and do it--it is a once in a lifetime experience that you will treasure forever. Skydiving in Aruba--awesome and spectacular!!
