While we do truly believe that we are the best and safest skydiving center in New England, we understand that we are not the only option for where you may want to jump. Because of this fact, we encourage you to thoroughly research any other options you may be considering prior to making any sort of reservation. Here are several things you may want to look into:
- Be wary of Groupon, LivingSocial, or any other deal sites. The majority of these have hidden fees that are not included in the basic cost, such as gear rental, booking fees, mandatory gratuities, etc. You will most likely end up paying more in the end and may get a bad deal regarding safety. We have no hidden fees, everything is included.
- Make sure that you research the safety record of the skydiving center before booking! A simple Google search for News articles related to a particular location can be enlightening. You may be surprised by what you find.
- Check the facilities available. Are there flushing toilets? Food and drinks? A safe waiting area? What is the training area like? Do they have a physical building or are they working out of a trailer? Very few locations work with such efficiency as Skydive Newport and the chances of a long wait at other locations are practically certain (read their FAQ pages). You and your spectators will want to be comfortable during your wait.
- What is the view like? Are there trees below? Farms or parking lots? Or are they jumping over the scenic coastline like we do at Skydive Newport?
- Do your spectators have a separate waiting area away from the landing area? Are you able to land in front of them?
- What is their cancellation policy? Do you get your deposit back if you can’t jump due to a problem at their end or do they offer you a raincheck? If so, what is the expiration date?
Wherever you decide to jump from, it is important that you choose a place that will leave you with a long-lasting, positive memory. Make sure you do your homework and look at reviews before choosing your skydive center.
We fully believe that we at Skydive Newport will offer you the best experience at the best value in all of New England. It would be our pleasure to jump with you and we hope to hear from you soon!
