My experience at Skydive Snohomish was positively fantastic. It started out with helpful and professional customer service during the reservation process, and it ended with an exhilarating tandem skydive that was one of the best experiences of my entire life. Everything in between was incredible too. The training video was extremely helpful to know exactly what to expect, and then it was off to the outdoor "observation area." I watched skydivers from the previous group free fall, deploy their parachutes, gently float to the ground, and then cheer with excitement as they landed. When it became my turn to get geared up, I was paired with my Tandem Instructor, who was genuinely kind and had a big smile on his face. I think all the instructors were smiling at this point. You can tell that they really love their job. The airplane ride to get to 12,000 ft was absolutely breathtaking. I could clearly see Seattle, Mount Baker, the San Juan Islands, and so much more. I was already enjoying myself thoroughly, but the real fun was about to begin. The plane door opened and when it was our turn to jump…INDESCRIBABLE!!! Exhilarating, invigorating, incredible, amazing, I would even say "life changing." It’s a moment in life when you really "feel alive" through and through to the depths of your core. The free fall was a total rush, and then the parachute deployed. The peace of the quietness in the air and the beauty of the surroundings would have made me "speechless," except I was screaming with excitement. Our landing was picture perfect, and the incredible memories I made will never be forgotten. My entire experience from beginning to end was absolutely excellent. I felt very well cared for and knew I was in good hands. Thank you Skydive Snohomish! Your reputation in the industry, your safety record, the kindness and professionalism of your staff, and the skills and training requirements of your instructors are all greatly appreciated. I have already booked my next skydive adventure. WAHOO!!! – Nancy M.
The best rush ever!.
Thank you so much for making our first jump an AMAZING experience. Honestly, I had never once had any desire to jump out of a plane, but put it on my "30-before-30" list to try something new and totally outside of my "norm". I LOVED it!!! My friend and I jumped with Todd and Sonja, and they made us feel comfortable, totally eased our nerves, and kept us laughing the whole time. It's now 5 days later, and I still have the same stupid grin on my face that I had when I jumped. We can't wait for our next jump next month!!!
YO! My friend Julie and I tandem jumped last Saturday morning with you guys. We had an absolutely awesome time! Three words for ya...FA BU LOUS!! I jumped with Spotty. I love that I got paired up with him! He made it super fun for me, I was completely comfortable, and felt safe the entire time. Plus he has a bad ass accent! Gotta love the accents! I love that I got the video, it helps me to remember the adrenaline and anticipation build up. In fact my stomach does a happy little dance inside me every time I watch myself dump out of that plane! Yes I said dump, it was not graceful enough to call it a jump. I particularly like the fact that during the free fall all you see is my eyes get huge, and my mouth fly at the speed of light with every excited phrase I could possibly muster, and my arms flail about light a chicken with two broken wings (I think I even grabbed Spotty's arm and shook it like a tambourine). This was followed by the removal of spittle that had accumulated on my cheek as I was flying towards the ground at 120 mph . After that it was a very leisure ride provided by Captain Spotty as he spun me one direction and then back the other way to take in the breathtaking view that we had on that perfect day. In fact Julie said I laughed louder than she had ever heard in her life (reminded her of Julia Roberts). The finale was the landing when Spotty told me that was probably the most fun thing I will ever do with my clothes on.....I would agree :) The entire experience was very intoxicating, and it won't be the last time that you see me! Thanks again for the great ride Spotty! And thanks to everyone for making our experience so great!
Take it easy!
best skydive ever!. So I just got back from my skydive at skydive Snohomish. This is my 4th jump and I think each time it gets better and better. Jordan was my instructor and he was awesome! Seems like each time gets easier and I can relax and enjoy. Jordan was very thorough in telling me everything, and made sure my jump was memorable. Thanks you guys, all of you do such an amazing job, can't hardly wait for my next birthday to come and do it again! I now look forward to getting older! Patty Kossak
Skydive Snohomish - Awesome day!.
Just wanted to drop you all a quick note to say how much fun I had during my first dive this past Sunday. I was with 2 other friends and the 3 of us came away from that experience as changed people. The staff and instructors were fantastic and obviously enjoy passing on their passion for the sport.
I'm already hooked, and looking forward to my next jump.
Thanks again, see you soon!
What a great skydiving experience!!!.
Thanks to all at Skydive Snohomish for making my first tandem skydive - my first skydive - a fantastic experience. Loved it - after leaving the plane! A special thanks to Kelley for making the skydive a thrilling yet safe ride. I now have 1 skydive to his almost 5,000 skydives! Hope to do more, but don't think Kelley has to worry about my catching up to him.
Skydive Snohomish. I just have one thing to say, I had an amazing time. The service was great, the people where great, and the jump was great! I really can't think of anything that would make jumping out of a plane more fun. When my friends ask me how it was, I have a hard time finding word to describe the wonderful experience I had at Snohomish Sky Diving. It was all I expected and much much more. I
I'll Be Back.
Dear Skydive Snohomish,
A few days ago I was lucky enough to participate in one of your tandem skydives, sharing the experience with my girlfriend. We sprung for the higher altitude drop which I do not regret in the least. Overall, I could not have asked for a better experience, but here is the story in full detail.
My instructor was Jordan and her's was Todd. I'll speak mostly from my own experience because Sherah will be writing her own testimonial, but I can safely say that we both had an amazing experience which was a direct result of being matched with these two guys. I was extremely scared to jump out of a plane. This was all my girlfriend's idea. Although I enjoy climbing and mountaineering, I am incredibly scared of heights. I'm not sure if Jordan could read this on me or if I just lucked out, but he was exactly what I needed: calm, reassuring, and straight to the point. It was very professional how he matter-of-factly told me what was going to happen and what he needed me to do, but he was also very personable and friendly. Todd was a bit more exciting and joked around, which was still enjoyable, but Jordan's calm confidence made me feel calm and confident. There was never a doubt in my mind that we would land safely.
On the plane Jordan pointed out all of the major landscape features: Rainier, Baker, San Juan Islands, etc. We even had enough time to get to know each other a little better on the ride up to 14,000 feet. Although the freefall and parachuting felt like it went by quickly, we had enough time for Jordan to allow me to drive the parachute. He and Todd also brought my girlfriend and I next to each other during the parachute down. This was a very special experience to be within 20 feet of each other, and it was a much appreciated gesture on their part that made our skydiving together even more of a shared event.
Bottom line: we had fun, I faced a fear, it was more personalized than I could have imagined, and I will definitely be back as soon as I can. AND I will be asking for Jordan specifically.
Thank you so much
Best day in my life!!!!.
I won't forget this day for the rest of my life.
Jumping off a plane was a wild dream of mine since childhood.
At the age of 57, I finally did it at Snohomish , WA .
Of course I was nervous as any first timer should be.
But Vlad, my tandem buddy made me comfortable enough before take off.
Then shortly after the briefing I was away. Into the skies, on a clear sunny day.
I was the second one to dive. Was I tense? Hhhmm!!
Just before,....when I was about to jump...was the most difficult part. And the most exciting!!!
Then came the 'Free fall'. 60 seconds of Ecstasy . It was a feeling, I felt, I never felt before.
At around 4000 feet , the calm came after.
Looked around and saw the snow capped mountains and lakes. I even got to see the Seattle skyline.
The soft landing took away another great fear of mine.
Thanks Vlad...Thanks Snohomish Skydive at Harvey Field.
Will I do it again?
Actually I felt like doing it right away.
Great People to Jump Out of a Plane With!. Skydive Snohomish, thanks for all that you do there and the excellent job in which you do it! I just had my 1st skydive experience with you guys today and it was AMAZING!!! My friend and I went to celebrate my 27th birthday and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate! I don't know what I'm gonna do next year to top this one! From the moment we walked in the doors your staff made us feel welcomed and relaxed, helping put our nerves at ease. Our instructors, Vladimir & Jordan, especially made the experience all the more fun and entertaining! We had a fantastic time and as soon as I hit the ground I wanted to do it all over again! I will definitely be recommending your company to all my friends and those even remotely interested in jumping out of a plane. And, I hope to be back myself sometime in the future! Thanks for your part in helping me have an amazing birthday!
