Hi Guys, Thank you for your review and sorry for the rescheduling. Due to some unforeseen circumstances and wind changes, we had to change our parachutes a few times and that puts us behind schedule. Regards, Julia and the crew

Totally recommend the team for being super nice and friendly! They made our day by letting us onboard for one of their flights! The boat-ride itself is cool and way more fun than the normal ferries! Thanks for a great time. Totally recommend anytime!

Hi Larry, Yes that is our maximum weight but if the conditions are perfect no problems to fly you together. If not then we would just fly you separately which is just as awesome.
