      If you ever wanted to experience the thrill of jumping out of an airplane, Skydive Newport is an excellent place to do it. In business since 1999, it has the highest standards of safety and customer satisfaction. After getting into your gear and getting a five minute orientation, you and your instructor will get into a plane and soar up 10,000 feet, where you'll be attached to an experienced diver. And when you're ready, you'll jump out and freefall for 30 to 40 seconds, the instructor will open the parachute and you'll glide the rest of the way down for 5 to 6 minutes, as you get an unforgettable view of Newport's harbor. Don't worry, the instructor is highly skilled and experienced and in control, though he may let you do some steering if you wish. It's safe and unforgettable.

      If you go:
      Be warned that skydiving is rather expensive, especially since you'll almost certainly want to add a photo and video package to your bill. Reservations must be made by phone, and it's recommended you make them at least a week in advance. Participants must be over the age of 18 and weigh less than 240 pounds. You might want to tip your marvelous instructor, tips are not expected, but are greatly appreciated. Spectators accompanying jumpers have a convenient viewing area with picnic tables, and may bring lunch if they wish.
