What could be better than a tandem skydive over the Waianae mountains and the Pacific Ocean? Of course you will want evidence of your adventure, so ask to have it videotaped, from the plane ride to the splashy ocean landing. Skydive Hawaii has been operating safely on O'ahu since 1988. Instructors are licensed and highly trained. Skyplanes can go as high as 13,000 feet, for a freefall of 5,000 feet. A Waikiki hotel pickup is available daily. You must be 18 years old and weigh less than 200 pounds to qualify for tandem jumps.
I just started skydiving and had 19 jumps. Knowing that all places won't let you jump without enough experience, I did the smart thing and called them first. They told me I could jump with a coach. I drove an hour to get there, then waited a half hour to talk to someone, even filled out the waiver. When I finally found someone to talk to even though they said to wait outside for someone to come to me, they told me no. I understand that they are worried about my lack of experience, but don't tell me I can, then tell me I can't after I wasted sleep, an hour drive, and gas. On a positive not, it looked like a fun place to jump. They had the cheapest tandem prices I've ever seen.
for my first time jumping or getting a little shove rather out of a perfectly good plane, it was AMAZING!!! if you go to Oahu it is a MUST do!!! it doesnt matter how old you are just do it...
it will be a experience you will never forget and skidive hawaii's staff make it that much better....
Having always wanting the rush of skydiving, believe me,(being from TEXAS & looking over the island of O'ahu, from 14,000 ft.!), made me reconsider why I even thought of skydiving anywhere else. If you are thinking of being only of 1% of the world's population who is wanting the same first time experience of skydiving. SKYDIVE HAWAII ! ! There is no comparision ! !
What a magnificent experience! After skydiving for the first time, I thought I would just check "skydiving" off my list and be done with it...but what I experienced at Skydive Hawaii has definitely made me want to go again. Besides the breathtaking (no pun intended) views and thrilling free fall, the staff made you feel very safe and comfortable. Even though I know they do it multiple times a day, it is obvious that they really appreciate how big a deal it is to the first timers...
I definitely am enjoying looking back at the photos and video.
And I would definitely do it again....
The people at Skydive Hawaii are absolutely awesome. They made us feel comfortable, and made us laugh all the way up to altitude. We felt totally safe, because it is obvious that these guys are extremely professional and capable. The jump was incredible beyond words. Everyone should do this!!!!!
I went skydiving for the first time on my 55th birthday. Our trip was planned for the Pro Bowl but this is the experience I will remember forever. In fact I will be going again this weekend in Raleigh, but will be back to Skydive Hawaii in September...Lyle is the greatest! Go...you will never regret it...and be sure and ask for Lyle!

Skydive Hawaii rocked my world! Everyone there is fun, helpful, and serious adrenaline junkies :) Would you expect any less from professional sky divers? Everything about the experience is a blast. It all starts with signing a release form that acknowledges the risk and reality of death and dismemberment... oh yeah and the waiver of possible sexual harassment claims... that's when the adrenaline starts pumping. Then, you chill outside watching the people ahead of you fall out of the sky while Mary cooks you up some pizza. Its yummy, and I was told its better to keep a routine and not starve yourself, don't worry about getting queasy. You'll see your name posted along with your diving buddy and the two tandem masters. Tandem Master Marc took me on the dive of my life!! Sasha was my mom's tandem master (yes, my mom went sky diving!) and she felt completely safe with those big German arms around her! You ride out to the plane on a F-150, on the bed of course, Hawaiian style. Then you crawl into the tiniest plane I've ever seen and pack yourselves in, this might be why the sexual harassment release must be signed, haha. The view from the top is incredible; mountains, ocean, the reef, beautiful O’ahu passing beneath you, it gets cold up there so come dressed or get ready to snuggle up! Then, its time, your tandem master is totally strapped onto you and he begins to crawl out of the airplane… two seconds later you fall forward into the most incredible feeling of your life, FREE FALL. You totally forget the instructions that were given to you, but your tandem master keeps you in line; follow his lead and just enjoy. When the parachute opens you glide easily through the sky, twisting and turning and there are no words to describe. The landing is smoother than you can image and you’ll have the best adrenaline rush of your life. Worth the money, worth the wait, it’ll change your perspective on life. Thanks Skydive Hawaii!! Can’t wait to come back :)
