I have had the pleasure of skydiving back in the day before tandem jumping was invented (tehe) in the late 70's in Nevada and tandem with my older daughter in Vt. 2008. Yesterday we went in Newport with my younger daughter and it was my intent to take my son next in another state....I am by no means a seasoned jumper but I am older and wiser... Newport Skydiving surpasses all expectations....if you come here 1st jump or 50th you will be back....Bet you can't do just one @ Skydive Newport. Special thanks to Jerry and Nicky and the entire staff for making it unforgettable experience!! I'll be back!

The video and photo package that was made for me is fantastic - I find myself watching it over and over saying "I can't believe that's me! I did that!"

Tracy Morales - tracy@ct.metrocast.net

I just recently made my first skydive on Saturday, 4/25/2015. It was my 40th birthday and my parents were kind enough to help me scratch skydiving off my "bucket list" as a gift. It was the best birthday present I have ever received, hands down. I wanted to say thank you to your entire staff for making it such an extraordinary experience. From the moment I walked in, everyone there was so nice and pleasant and completely professional. My instructor Nicky was incredible. He put me at ease immediately. He exuded confidence and calm and I felt completely secure throughout the process. He also made it a lot of fun. The video and photo package that was made for me is fantastic - I find myself watching it over and over saying "I can't believe that's me! I did that!" I've told all of my friends and family about you, and when asked if I would do it again, I say "In a heartbeat!" My experience was second to none. I have you all to thank for that, so...THANK YOU!! And I can't wait to do it again!

Skydive Newport ROCKS!!

Sincerely,

Tracy


Marc and the staff totally are great people and the view is unlike anything in New England, the ocean, Islands, bridges, rocky shores, and could see the outline of Martha's Vineyard, just spectacular.

Couldn't be happier with my choice of skydive Newport, jumped with Nick Sergi and he was awesome. Marc and the staff totally are great people and the view is unlike anything in New England, the ocean, Islands, bridges, rocky shores, and could see the outline of Martha's Vineyard, just spectacular. I cannot say enough great things about this dropzone, if your looking to skydive definitely go here!!!!


Best in class operation at Skydive Newport!

Best in class operation at Skydive Newport! My daughter Haley celebrated her 18th birthday with style jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet with a friend. Last minute I signed up as well. This is truly an experience of a lifetime. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor than Rich Fowler. He was affable and made me feel calm. The adrenaline rush of freefall was unmatched followed by the the tranquility of floating down the final 5,000 feet stretch viewing the Newport and Middletown coastlines. I highly recommend this facility for your first or next jump.


It has been a dream of mine to skydive for some time and when I visited Newport this past winter I knew it was the place and I am SO glad I waited and went to Skydive Newport!

The staff was very friendly and the experience was unlike any other I have ever had. 10,000 feet above Newport, RI and you can see all the way to Boston.

Life Changing - ChaeRae | TripAdvisor

I finally went sky diving for my 30th birthday! For years I have watched people sky diving in Newport and wanted to go and finally made it happen. The staff was very friendly and the experience was unlike any other I have ever had. 10,000 feet above Newport, RI and you can see all the way to Boston. The weather was perfect and I couldn't have had more fun! My only problem was that the jump didn't last long enough! Can't wait to go again!

You owe it to yourself to live a little, and there's no better way than jumping out of a plane with Skydive Newport!

Jared - jrluz14@aol.com

Easily the most amazing experience of my life. My friends and I had the best time of our lives. Skydive Newport did a great job with making it fun and did an awesome job with calming my nervous girlfriend down before jumping. Now that she's done it she cannot wait to jump again. If you're thinking about doing this then think no longer and just do it. You won't regret anything and it's an experience that'll last you a lifetime.

Skydive Newport provided the nicest scenery and calling for my appointment I got to experience the nicest and most informative customer service from the whole staff.

For years I wanted to skydive. Finally reached a point that I said to myself, enough talk and do it! Skydive Newport provided the nicest scenery and calling for my appointment I got to experience the nicest and most informative customer service from the whole staff. In particular, my instructor, Rich Fowler, who made me feel at ease explaining every step along the way of what to expect and what I had to do to ensure a safe and fun ride. I'm so happy I was able to jump with Rich. He really made this nervous experience an unforgettable one! I will be jumping again!


They take you through step by step and give you a safe reassuring feeling. I wasn't scared one bit!

Sarah Peet - speet8989@yahoo.com

Skydiving is hands down the most amazing thing I have ever done! I jumped with Nicky over the weekend. Skydive Newport is the only place I will ever jump. They take you through step by step and give you a safe reassuring feeling. I wasn't scared one bit! It was my first jump but definitely not my last!! I can't thank the team of Skydive Newport enough. These guys know what their doing. Can't wait to see you all again from 10,000ft!
