What YOU Are Saying About Great Lakes Skydiving!

We love our customers and this is just a sample of what they think about us!

  • I made my first Tandem Skydive here at Great Lakes Skydiving and will never forget it! Tyler was my tandem master and Critter shot my DVD and still photos. Awesome experience all around. I wouldn't jump anywhere else! - Erran Y.
  • It was amazing! Leslie did a great job with the video and Pat was a fun and very professional instructor. Can't wait to do it again...SOON! - Amanda Averill
  • We were very skeptical about jumping at first, even though the safety record is undeniably positive, we did not think that skydiving could be such an enjoyable and safe activity. To say that we were surprised with the day would be an understatement. Our family is still in shock at the experience. We are still feeling the buzz! - Tom G.
