Great team building activity! Looking forward to next year’s event.
I loved the experience of fear and excitement during the jump. I would do it again. My only wish I could get a little longer video without cuts in the sky. But over-roll I loved it and grateful to all the people who provided safety and friendly atmosphere. Thank you !
I cannot say enough good things about Skydive Kapowsin. Everyone there was super friendly - very family friendly atmosphere. Both Kesha (for Camera) and Andy (for Tandem) were fabulous! Very friendly, very calm, and fun people. I will never forget this experience and I plan to go again, and maybe again... and.. :) I loved it!
Excellent time !
Amazing staff , Safe , Perfect for any 1st time jumper..
No over instruction. Exciting and fast paced. No b.s.
This was on my bucket list of things to do in life. I had the best experience I could imagine. I will definitely be back and to do it again.
Been dreaming of this for many years it was all I'd hoped for!
One of the things on my bucket list WAS to jump from a perfectly good air plain before my 60th birthday. With your help I was able to check that one off! Amy was our preflight instructor. She made it seam so easy. I now know how lucky that i am to have her pick me her dive partner. She is the most genuine and wonderful person that I have met in quit a long time. It was like we have known each other for years. I felt so comfortable with her that I had no fear of what I was about to do. It was like she knew what I needed to be comfortable. She talked me through every step of the way. Under the canape she showed me all the sights (Mt Rainier, the Olympics Ect)........My video person (I am sorry I do not remember her name) is simply amazing!!!!! She too was so much fun and up beat. When she climbed out the door I knew this was going to be FUN. when she flew in and garbed my hands I felt like I had a friend there with me. She engaged me to have fun and the video and stills are the most amazing things I have ever seen. I have plastered them all over my FB page and showed all my Co workers. I have told them them they must try this and they need to come see you guys. My Coworker Jon who jumped too said his team member was not as jovial as mine but he loved the experience and went home and started working on his wife to have her come jump with him again... In closing this is with out a doubt one of the craziest and funnest things I have done in a long time. every person that I interacted with including the owner Lady ( sorry forgot her name) was having FUN and you all helped make the experience one of the best days of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone was great, skydiving was a blast and the atmosphere was great. Will definitely be returning.
Took my husband for a late birthday present and he loved it! He had a great expirience and not to mention how helpful it was that there was a playground and toys for my kiddos to play with.
great jump staff, all were helpful, calm, and informative. fun and fantastic experience. it did feel a bit disorganized on the outset while dividing the groups; i was just waiting with no clear plan of where to go/ when it would start but ultimately went smoothly.
Very relaxed atmosphere simple instructions for first time jumpers. Will do it again.
Matthew was wonderful to Tandem jump with- Made it extremely fun and relaxing! Everyone is so nice and a great atmosphere.
Gone a couple times. Staff is chill. They deliver an awesome experience. If I get to free fall without dying, I'm satisfied
Great staff, great program.
It’s Close to where I live
Aimee (jumped with me tandem) and Matt (camera) were amazing! Then when my camera person wasn't there the other camera guy took video after I landed and he was awesome too. Aimee was really knowable and put me at ease. Great customer service! I've been telling people to go and I'll be back too :)
Love it - such a Rush and so much fun! Felt completely safe the entire time and the instructors are all Awesome and the photographer amazing as well! Definitely coming back within 6 months, with 2 of my other Adult Children! Truly an Amazing experience and checked the Bucket List!
So much fun! An experience of a lifetime I will remember forever!
Amazing experience. Everyone we encountered was super friendly and welcoming. Made the experience that much better. Will recommend to anyone who asks!!! Larry and Greg were the best!! Thank you.
Top 6 most amazing moments of my life! The entire staff was amazing! We were there maybe 30 minutes before we were piling into the airplane! The level of professionalism at skydive kapowsin was amazing!
It was amazing!! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming! The experience was awesome and the environment at kapowsin skydive was just as great!!
my tandem partner was top notch.and would dive with her again..
Two friends, my wife, and I did a tandem jump to celebrate a birthday. I can't wait to do it again. Everyone there was very kind, relaxed, easygoing, and reassuring. The waiver is REALLY intimidating, but it's required, so just get it over with. We got our gear on (jump suits and harnesses) and spoke with our tandem jumpers. They explained everything pretty casually, mostly I think because we are just along for the ride. There are instructions to remember, but they're easy. The plane ride up was nerve-wracking, because I didn't know what to expect. But everyone is super positive and encouraging! When we finally got to 13,000 feet, they opened the door and folks started jumping! I expected the roller coaster feeling the whole time - but you only feel it for like 3 seconds! After that it's just calm. The views are just unlike anything. I recommend contacts over glasses if you have them. Bring thin wind-resistant gloves if you can. Bring your GoPro if you have one! Tips are accepted, and I can say I felt that our jump partners deserved it. We paid $100 for the videographer, which was well worth it to commemorate the birthday! The videographer stayed with the birthday person, and did an amazing job - the shots were so good, and very well framed! They edited it together quickly and gave it to us on a thumb drive. Cannot recommend any higher. I can't wait to do it again soon.
The experience was wonderful. Everyone was super helpful and made the experience a once in a lifetime event. Thank you everyone
Very nice staff!
I think life changing experience! So fun, the staff and the adventure, thank you.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
I liked the smaller plane better, sitting on the floor. Deployment from plane good. My tandem partner just seemed to focus on getting down fast, instead of letting me enjoy the experience of the float down. My first partner let me control the chute for a short time and that was really cool. Could attribute some to personality differences. Or, the tandem partner just wanted to be doing so.something else.
Jared was an awesome skydive partner. He was super friendly, put me at ease and seemed genuinely interested in making sure I had a great experience. All of the staff at Kapowsin were wonderful. Laid back but at the same time they know their stuff and how to enjoy and safely share the sport with others.
This was my sons 18th birthday present and he had a blast! He’s still grinning from ear to ear and trying to decide when he should go back!
Matt, Greg and Carlos were all awesome!! Thank you guys!
This is my first visit and first time Tandem Skydiving! I love how friendly and fun experience with all crew members here. Everyone seemed so welcome and full of excitement! Even my cameraman was so fun! I can’t wait to come back again!
My instructor was the best. She was calm, fun and made the experience.
Great experience for my daughter and I.
A group of 5 of us went to celebrate various birthday's, but mostly for my 50th and my older brother's 60th. This was my 3rd jump, and 2nd through Kapowsin...and they did not disappoint. Every person in our group had a momentous experience and one they will never forget. My brother wants to make this an annual occasion, and several of my friends are already talking about when they are coming back for another jump. All of the jump instructors were very friendly, and knowledgeable. They kept the pace moving, delivering key safety aspects, but maintaining an atmosphere that was light and cheerful. You were never given a chance to second guess and 'freak out'. You can bet you have made fans of 5 people. Thank you for helping create a day full of magical and spiritual memories. Time, space, and the human spirit all connect and for one brilliant, brief, moment, you have a glimpse at something much bigger than you. You have not lived, until you have plummeted toward earth at terminal velocity, and then cap it off with a 'controlled' landing. Erin T
