My Dad and I jumped at Skydive Newport this past weekend (5/10/13) and had the time of our lives! The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Nicky and Jerry were our instructors and they were professional, knowledgeable and overall great guys! We cannot wait to jump again and when we do we will be returning to Skydive Newport!


I have jumped tandem at 3 different skydive locations, and skydive newport is by FAR the best.

Ed Beeslak - flarp9@hotmail.com

This was the best time of my life. I have jumped tandem at 3 different skydive locations, and skydive newport is by FAR the best.

They are very efficient, clean, and well spoken. The staff really does go the extra mile to ensure that you have a great experience.

I would recommend SKYDIVE NEWPORT to anyone looking to have an excellent experience.


They make you feel comfortable and take away any fears you may have.

I went skydiving for my third time on 9/1/12. I use to jump somewhere else but decided to try it in Newport. What an experience it was! The staff was friendly, professional and fun. They make you feel comfortable and take away any fears you may have. I've been twice before but lets be real, i was still jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, so i still get nervous before a jump. The views were unreal! Your instructor shows you everything like where Jamestown is and Block Island and so much more. Anyone who hasn't jumped and is thinking about it, Don't think, just DO IT! You wont be disappointed! I can honestly say i will not jump anywhere else besides Newport and i cant wait to do it again next year!


Thank you for giving me one of the best birthday presents of my life!

I turned 30 and wanted to do something memorable and decided to jump out of a plane yesterday. I was very nervous and the staff at Skydive Newport put me at ease. They were all so friendly and accommodating while making me laugh and take in the whole experience, from gearing up to touching down! I was referred by friends to Skydive Newport and I highly recommend anyone thinking of skydiving to use this company! Nicky and Jerry were amazing every step of the way!! Thank you for giving me one of the best birthday presents of my life


The whole process was extremely coordinated from the moment we entered to the time we jumped

Jessica Geist - weathervane82@comcast.net

Jumped at skydive Newport this past week for the first time and had the most amazing experience. The whole process was extremely coordinated from the moment we entered to the time we jumped. The staff was friendly and very professional and knew exactly what they were doing! The location was awesome with the ocean beneath us for a once and a life time view! I would definitely skydive here again and would highly recommend it!


Great group of people, all very professional

Bob - b_petit@hotmail.com

Well I finally did it. I have wanted to skydive for so long now and can cross it off my bucket list. On 08/13/2012 my daughters 25th birthday her and I jumped. It was a beautiful, clear day. Not a cloud in the sky. I was nervous, I would be lying if I told you otherwise but the people from Skydive Newport made me feel comfortable and really help ease that uneasy feeling. Great group of people, all very professional. Pictures and video came out great. Thank you Skydive Newport for helping me cross another goal off my bucketlist, I has such a great time I plan on doing it again and wouldn't think of doing it any where but Skydive Newport.

Went skydiving today with my son. It was the first time for both of us but I don't think it will be our last. What an amazing experience. Everyone at Skydive Newport was wonderful, especially Nick, he made me feel so comfortable and totally at ease. If you are considering doing a jump...DO IT!!! Thanks Skydive Newport for an experience that I will never forget!
