    SkyDive Aruba

    Hello again...as my trip closes in on me I'm trying to decide what to do with my time. My natural state of mind is being a beach bum but my buddy gets anxious to do things.

    Has anyone here ever jumped with the SkyDive Aruba company? I couldn't imagine anything better than jumping out of a perfectly good airplane and seeing the entire island from 10,000 feet up.

    I have heard only good things about them. I would love to - but my wife gives me dirty looks every time I mention it - and I need to lose 5 more lbs before I am eligible for the 220 lb limit. If I ever do it - I better go on the first day of my trip before I gain the usual ten Aruba lbs!

    I was one of the first to skydive with them, they had only been there a couple weeks when my friend and I jumped. It was my 3rd jump and her 1st. They are a wonderful professional fun bunch of people. Skydiving over Aruba was beautiful and exhilerating! Much better then jumping over a bunch of cornfields here in the midwest! You will love it!

    It must be a sign from above (pun fully intended).

    Does anyone know if their prices include the video and photos?

    Hi, we know one of the owners. I can give you his girlfriends email address if you would like. She has done it a few times now. Actually if you were to go to the playa linda resort facebook or playa linda's website she is the concierge her name is Yvette. I'm sure she would answer your questions.

    i did it! and i'm hooked!

    whenever i come across a great company that provides a great service - i give credit without a doubt. review posted on trip advisor (still pending) but i'm still smiling ear to ear and can't stop watching my video!

    Tyce is the best and so is Troy, Rick, Dave and Greg. Great crew there and highly recommend it. If you choose to do any activities or limited to 1 or 2, make sure this is on the list. No regrets!
