Skydive BA Lobos Reviews
Extreme Sport in Buenos Aires Jan 06, 2009
"Skydive in Buenos Aires, at an altitude of 12.000 feet (3800 mts) and enjoy the sensation of freefalling for one whole minute, reaching speeds of more than 200 Km/h (125 miles per hour) while soaring through the air plus 6 to 8 minutes of flying with an open parachute until landing."
Some people think that skydiving is crazy!
Millions of questions pop through your mind. Are you scared, does it feel like a roller coater ride, will you get nauseating and will you get dizzy? But mostly people want to know what does it feel like?
It's not like a roller coaster ride and you don't pass out. It doesn't hurt you. (You might feel that the harness hurt you a little especially when the shoot opens.)In fact you feel like you weigh nothing. Your cheeks slap repeatily on the side of your face as you plummit to the ground at an incredible speed. Fact is, you don't really care because beneath you is this amazing view and you have the absolute feeling of freedom. What a magnificent experience!
You can laugh, scream, shout, cry and all of it will be recorded on the video! You and your friends can have a great laugh afterwards.

They are quick to respond and will arrange to meet you in the city. We paid +- 850 Argentinian pesos for a full tandem package. It included transport, the jump and a dvd with photo's. Prices need to be confirmed by them. They pick you up from Avenida de Mayo in the city. It is a very central location.
When you arrive at the airstrip they give you instructions and then you are ready to jump. The tandem jumps are straight forward. in fact there is not much that you have to do. They do all the work for you. A camera man makes the jump with you and record all the moments. This is great.
I highly recommend this group of guys and they also speak English.
