Skydiving Bakersfield

Freefall Over California With a Tandem Skydive Over Taft, CA

About This Experience

General Information hide

Experience the thrill of California Skydiving! Only 40 miles southwest of the City, your Bakersfield Sky Diving adventure begins with an introduction to the sport, safety aspects of Tandem Skydiving and an overview of all safety procedures and equipment.

After you have completed the pre-jump training, you will suit-up and hop on the plane with your Instructor. Once the plane reaches an altitude of 14,000 feet above the dropzone, it is time to exit the plane! Prior to your Skydiving CA, you will be harnessed to your experienced Certified Instructor as you get ready for an amazing 120 mph 50-60 second freefall. 

When you reach an altitude of 5,000 feet, your Instructor will deploy the parachute so that you can glide back to earth under the canopy built for two. During the six minute descent, you will be able to help direct the parachute and enjoy amazing views of the San Joanquin Valley below. This Skydive in California is an amazing experience for anyone looking for a daring adventure and is a great gift!
