What You'll Get
Inkblot tests are easy—the answer is always clouds. Today's Groupon takes you straight into the source of the Rorschach and prepares you to face an even greater mental challenge. For $125, you get a tandem jump (a $195 value) and T-shirt (a $20 value) at Skydive Tampa Bay. The jump is done with an experienced instructor, not just the T-shirt. Cross something off your bucket list with a team that has been around since 1978.
Skydive Tampa Bay hires only experienced, sweet-smelling skydive veterans licensed by the United States Parachute Association. These plummetologists have earned national and international championships, multiple world records, and ribbons at pie-eating contests. For additional levels of safety, there is a staff of FAA-certified parachute riggers who maintain the equipment and keep all parachutes in working order and monkey free.
First-time divers start off with an introductory class to gain some hands-on experience with the equipment and then take to the sky with an instructor in tow for the first tandem skydive. Classes are by appointment only and space is limited, so call ahead for a reservation.
Five Dropzone users give Skydive Tampa Bay a perfect five-star rating:

About Skydive Tampa Bay
The licensed skydive veterans of Skydive Tampa Bay have accompanied customers soaring from the bellies of airplanes since 1978. These plummetologists have earned national and international championship titles and multiple world records, and now start beginners on a path to their own air-bound accolades with introductory tandem jumps. Lessons begin with on-ground instruction before instructors securely attach students to their torsos like thrill-seeking mother kangaroos and freefall for two miles. After students learn the basics through tandem dives, instructors put them through the Accelerated Freefall Program, which includes classroom time, ground training, solo jumps, and post-dive critiques of freefall techniques and maneuvers.
