Best experience on the island!

This was another check off my bucket list. Very professional staff from start to finish, yet friendly and fun. They all made you feel comfortable and safe at all times from signing up in the office to meeting the pilot. I jumped with Sparky. He was the best. We even landed standing up which made me look like a professional,... More

Thank you so much to Skydive South Padre....Frank, Sparky, Sergio and staff. I had more fun than I thought I would; I loved it when the parachute opened! I felt very safe with the decisions Frank was making; and also, with Sparky's ability to jump out of a plane

What an amazing day! The weather didn't cooperate initially, but I was pleased that Frank and his crew didn't take any chances and made sure everything was right for a good experience. My friend and I both turned 70 last November so we decided to go sky diving to celebrate. Got suited up and Sparky, my tandem superman, gave me... More

This was my first time skydiving, my future brother in law set it up for us on our visit from Arizona. Frank, Sparky, and Sergio made this the most memorable and comfortable experience imaginable. Although I did not have anything to compare it to, I had read other stories and reviews. I will definitely do another dive with Skydive SPI... More

Last minute decision to jump on our way out of town. We were free falling within a little over an hour of getting a call back. Great group, amazing experience, highly recommended for first time or even if it isn't. The view was indescribable!

The entire experience, from reservations to rolling out of the plane was amazing. Staff was very professional and prepared. I can't wait to do it again. If you are going to jump out of an airplane, you MUST do it at South Padre Island. It was BEAUTIFUL! All the different colors of the ocean, the wide expanse of the sky... More
