Belize & Ambergris Caye Help

What’s it like skydiving over the island?

One goes up to 13,000 feet and bails out. I believe that the free fall is about 3 minutes - but I was so  excited/nervous that I’m not sure if it felt like 3 minutes, but was only 1.  Or if it was 3 minutes but if felt like 1.

I know if our videos that when we came out of the plane we are
spinning and goofing around, the photographer/camera man comes up to you, makes faces and signals, peals off and leaves you alone for a
while and then its cold, feels like just you, the wind, your body is
hurtling to the ground, the land is coming at you kinda fast (130 mph)
and then your tandem guide reminds you your not alone.  He pulls the
chute and I certainly felt the sensation of lift.  then you are just
drifting along, you have control of direction with the chute, you can
hear the wind flapping over the silk - and wow, what a view, a vantage
point of the island that few ever get to see at such a leisurely
pace.  Almost indiscribable.  The landing comes up pretty fast
thereafter and the excitement returns when you know it is time to come in for a landing.  Sharks, crocks, powerlines, friends right down
below.
