My son turned 18 and he and I decided to go skydiving together (I'm 46). This was a thrill of a lifetime. We both LOVED it! We will be going back and jumping again when he comes home from college next summer. It may have to become an annual tradition.

On the jump front, Ronaldo was amazing, gave all clear instructions and a good... More

I booked this for my husband for Valentine's Day. He LOVED it! He did the 8000-ft. jump, and afterward bought vouchers for us both to do the 15000-ft. jump. His instructor was JR and did a fabulous job of making my husband feel safe and comfortable, and his sense of humor was greatly appreciated. The only negative part of the... More

I must tell you that I was very excited to do sky diving after watching Hindi Movie "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara". So, when I was in the vicinity of this place - I thought why not, let me just jump. Although I booked my slot in advance & given a particular timeslot - I had to wait like 3-4hrs before... More

Most amazing experience you can ever have! I felt safe and comfortable, the staff makes sure you understand what you have to do. It was by far the most extreme thing I've ever done.

I decided to take my girlfriend skydiving for her birthday but not before asking if she'd be okay with that lol! All phone interactions were quite pleasant very well spoken! This made it pretty easy to not feel apprehensive about the place I had chosen to do a tandem skydive with. Dakota was my dive instructor, he was very professional... More

Charlie was very accommodating with our desire to see something attractive and green. The plane was narrow so it is a tight fit for two but possible. Be sure to bring your camera and wear sunglasses !

Having completed the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course at Skydive Hollister, I highly recommend the drop zone for anybody interested in learning skydiving in a supportive, professional and fun environment. The Hollister crew is highly experienced and instructors have thousands of jumps under their belts, yet somehow they have maintained complete enthusiasm for their jobs and are out to have fun,...

The ppl were great and the price was good (I used a Groupon). The only downfall is that the view from skydiving in Hollister is not as beautiful as skydiving in a place like San Diego. If you like skydiving, I still recommend it.

The current owners bought the business & airplane a few years back. At times the phone is not answered, other times it is. Staff at the airport state that they have not been making payments to the old owners on the aircraft or business. They said that some repo guys were snooping around the aircraft a few months back.
