I procrastinated for more than a decade to do this. If you have ever had the slightest twinge of an urge to try this do it now. That wait may turn into another decade or worse, it may never happen. Great people that work here and very attentive to detail and safety. Do not go with expectations of keeping a... More

Another adventure marked off the bucket list. This was the most exciting experience! Friends and family were more nervous than I was as the plane lifted off the ground that Sunday afternoon. The view as we jumped from the plane was spectacular! The landing was so smooth --I was ready for a repeat jump.

Couldn't have been better! Felt very safe. Friendly, courteous and thorough staff. I jumped with my daughter for her graduation. I have 2 more girls. I will be back!

I called needing to book a trip for my wife and I for her birthday. The female on the phone was very unhelpful and rude. I was told sky diving is nothing like Walmart and maybe I should call some where else. I asked if I could speak to someone else and was told no, I should just come by... More

SkydiveET, Manager at Skydive East Texas, responded to this review

Here at Skydive East Texas safety is our greatest concern. Most skydiving facilities, including us, have an initial weight limit. If a person is over that limit, but we feel after talking with them on the phone that we may be able to take them safely, we ask them to come in to interview with a tandem master to determine...

Everyone was so kind and professional. They really cared about making sure that the weather conditions were just perfect enough to jump in. When the weather failed us, Cori didn't. She was always willing to reschedule us as soon as possible so that we could experience the jump of a lifetime. I can't wait to go again!

I can't think of a better place to go to skydive. Both my husband & son used Lee for their 1st skydives. My family's safety was the primary focus for Lee. Cori is the sweetest, most sincere person I've ever met. She's an angel on earth. Their business is 1st class and we will continue to use them and encourage... More

It has been my pleasure to work with these folks. As a director of the GREAT TEXAS BALLOON RACE, one of my responsibilities is to line up all airborne activity for the three day event. Safety is paramount . Thousands of spectators witness jumps with pinpoint accuracy each year. I will continue to proudly associate with them and will jump... More
