Pre-jump I have never been so frightened in my life, but as soon as we left the plane all the terror evaporated and I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The instructors were brilliant: confidence-inspiring, calm, professional (I was worried about being strapped to a complete stranger, but it was really not embarrassing at all) and very funny. I would urge anyone who isn’t sure about trying a tandem jump to give it a go. The fact that you will be raising money for Cats Protection and having a once in a lifetime experience make it a ‘double whammy’ in terms of being worthwhile. Go for it!

I was terrified and needed to get it over with or I may not have done it as I'm scared of heights. But it was the best thing I have ever done. It was such an adrenaline rush. Most amazing views and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Once I was down I wanted to do it all over again. And the instructors were fabulous. Do it. Do it. You won't regret it.
