Skydive Cairns team are awesome! From the moment you walk in the ground team at reception are welcoming and keep you informed as to what’s happening when. Instructors are brilliant and make you feel so safe. Made me feel like one of the team and really took interest in my previous jumps. Would recommend the Skydive Cairns team to anyone!
