Key West, Fl.
Facebook Event Page.
Depending on the number of people coming on the trip, we will be chartering a 30 or 50 passenger bus. Estimated transportation cost will be under $50/pp for the round-trip. As soon as we know if we need a 30 or 50 passenger bus, we will be able to provide the exact cost of the transportation per person.
You do not have to go sky diving, but it is an activity we are planning for those who do want to go. We currently have 2 proposals from hotels close to Duval street that can accommodate our group.
The Pier House Resort has offered us a $229 nightly rate for their Lenai Rooms. The rates for that weekend are usually $254/ night. Each Lenai room has a balcony and pool view. They can have either 1 king bed or 2 queen beds. The Pier House is located on Duval Street, right next to the pier, so it is extremely central to everything in Key West. If you take a room with 2 queen beds, it can accommodate up to 4 adults.
The other proposal we have is from the Best Western Hibiscus Motel which is located on the opposite end of Duval Street and is a little further from ‘all the action”. The room rates, however, are lower at $129 per night.
I am still waiting to hear back from a few other hotels to see what their pricing is, but I wanted to get this information out to everyone as soon as possible.
Anyone interested in sky diving must be over 18 y/o and weigh less than 240 lbs. A $50 non-refundable deposit will be needed to reserve your spot on the sky diving adventure. The deposit is required because the sky diving company will charge us this money if you cancel. The airplane will take 2 sky divers up at a time (plus the tandem partner). So we are not able to all go together. A spectator’s area is located at the airport where our friends can watch & wait for our safe return.
The cost per person is $245 if you pay by credit card or $225 by using cash. Video and stills are $99 per person.
We need to get an indication of how many people will be coming so we can finish making all the necessary arrangements. To reserve your place in the trip, a $50 deposit will be required for each group that is traveling. This $50 deposit is separate from the $50 deposit for sky diving.
Provisions will be made in case there is any inclement weather that prevents the trip from taking place and you will receive either a refund or the deposit will be applied to the trip for when it is rescheduled. The deposits will be processed through Paypal, so your payment is secure.
Saturday night pub crawl to celebrate our successful sky dives, Sunday return, leaving Key West by 2PM.
We will be finalizing all plans & accommodations after this event is published. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the final details and to reserve your spot on the trip. Space is subject to availability and will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Skydive Key West. We are a very personal Dropzone and take tremendous pride in our 100% safety record, our experience (instructors with 5000+ jumps) and our professionalism. And of course, the beautiful Florida Keys is the most gorgeous place to ever make a skydive. We are located on Sugarloaf Key, which is on mile marker 17 on US Hwy 1. That’s just 15-20 Minutes outside of Key West.
We do tandem skydives like you can see on the picture on our website SkydiveKeyWest.com everyday between 10am and sunset. After just a brief training tape, you’ll be able to experience the rush of jumping out of a ‘perfectly good airplane’ and freefall at 120 miles per hour.
