I had the best time on my tandem skydive with Arnel!
Everyone was friendly, funny, and professional. Arnel was very reassuring and upbeat which definitely helped calm my nerves and made me feel completely safe. I couldn't have asked for a better first skydiving experience!
Every time I have thought about or mentioned my skydive, I haven't been able to keep the grin off my face! I absolutely loved the experience I had at Gateway Skydiving Center and wouldn't hesitate to go again!
My wife and I jumped yesterday. What a great experience.
The first impression is that we felt safe to indulge our goal.
You quickly feel the care and concern for safety with the staff of Gateway- it is like a small family of friends.
Next - The object is to have fun SKY DIVING
The owner Arnel explained the entire process while we were on the ground. He was fun and engaged in teaching safe tandem jumping.
I felt confident that a man who had successfully done over 4,600 sky dives was right to help me experience the thrills.
I am so glad we picked Gateway

Every time I've jumped with these folks, I've always had a blast and never had any issues. They walk you through everything when you're on the ground and in the plane, and work with you every step of the way to ensure you're 100% sure of what you're doing. As of 2016, I'll have spent the past three years jumping at Gateway Skydiving Center and have never had an issue. I've brought a number of folks with me to jump, and all of them have had a blast. Thanks to the helpful and humorous staff, it's been a pleasure jumping at Gateway Skydiving Center and I would highly recommend working with these guys for a great and memorable skydiving experience.
