    Cliff jumping

    Anybody do any cliff jumping while in Aruba? I just watched a couple of videos of people jumping. One was at Dos Playa and that did not look safe at all, not sure where the other one was filmed but it was a 30 foot jump thru ABC tours I believe. It looked amazing but I am not sure I would be willing to do it. I swim just fine but I am not a huge fan of heights, or better yet, falling from them, lol. That said, I am somewhat intrigued.

    I have seen the cliff jumping from ABC a couple of times.. on of the guards did it with no problems.. the other said "if god wants me to fly he would of given my wings" and I don't want those wings yet... too early.
    No there is no way I do it either. Too scary too.

    This is the video I was talking about, crazy! The other one looks reasonable if you can deal with falling from heights.

    Thanks. I am going to have to google Boca Ketu because I honestly have no idea where it is.

    It is in the Park, about 1/2 a mile north of the Natural Pool. Between Boca Daimari Beach/Rancho Daimari and the Nat Pool. I posted a bunch of pictures of it under photos in this forum. Boca Ketu, his and hers beaches.

    Great photos. The last one puts those cliffs into perspective for me. Assuming it was "safe" I am not sure I could do it if you offered me 10k. I think my heart would stop, lol.
