About This Experience

General Information hide

Only 50 miles northwest of the City, your Santa Barbara sky dive adventure begins with an orientation to the sport, safety aspects of Tandem Skydiving and an overview of all safety procedures and equipment.

Once you have completed the pre-jump instruction, you will suit-up and hop on the plane with your Instructor for a short flight to the Drop Zone. When the plane reaches an altitude of 13,000 feet above the dropzone, it is time to exit the aircraft! Prior to the Tandem Skydive, you will be harnessed to your Certified Instructor as you get ready for an unbelievable 120 mph 60 second freefall.

When you reach an altitude of 5,000 feet, your Instructor will deploy the parachute so that the two of you can gently glide back to earth under the canopy. During your descent, you will be able to help guide the parachute and enjoy amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Barbara landscape below. This Skydive in Southern California is an amazing experience for anyone looking for a daring adventure and makes a great gift for thrill seekers!
