Skydiving has this amazing way of feeling completely different than most people’s preconceived notions. I still remember my first skydive which was a static line jump in India.

Many people will argue that the best place to skydive in all of Hawaii is Waialua — and that may be true — but you can make a case that the best place to skydive in all of the world, is anywhere in Hawaii. From the craggy colored coastlines and vast palm tree-lined valleys to secret swimming holes and awe-inspiring volcano sites, the views from 8,000 feet up are beyond spectacular. Whether you’re taking the leap from Oahu, Kauai, Honolulu or anywhere else, skydiving in Hawaii will give you memories that will last for a lifetime.
9. Moab, Utah, United States
In America, there are so many great places to skydive out west — let alone in the state of Utah — that it’s hard to narrow it down to just one favorite. But skydiving over the breathtaking Arches National Park in Moab stacks up just about as high as you can go. With massive sandstone arches, sensational scenic hiking trails and monstrous red-rock monoliths, there aren’t too many backdrops in the U.S. that are this picture perfect for an epic skydiving excursion.
