Description

Skydive San Diego, Inc. is located next to beautiful Otay Lake resevoir. On the climb to altitude, you will see the Pacific Ocean, downtown San Diego and Mexico. The winds here are some of the most consitant in the world, usually 4 - 8 out of the west. Perhaps this is one of the reasons the United States Navy, United States Air Force and the United States Marine Corps conduct their training here. Skydive San Diego, Inc. is a full-service skydiving facility with multiple training buildings, a bunkhouse, deluxe packing lofts, a grass landing area, a BBQ deck and patio, and incredible scenery to match! Unlike some outfits that will depart a public airport and land you in a field miles away requiring a van ride back to your friends, Skydive San Diego is set up to takeoff and land right in the same place, where your friends can watch! There is over 8,000 sq. ft. of padded packing area at Skydive San Diego. No gnatty carpet or packing on the grass here, just shaded, padded bliss. And if that's not enough, we have packers who can do the dirty work while you enjoy a cool drink. Skydive San Diego has four bunkrooms that accommodate four people each. For an $8/night donation, you can crash here and be on the first load in the morning! We also have hot showers available, but bring your own bedclothes and towels, as those are not supplied. Skydive San Diego, Inc. hosts the newest, safest, and largest jumpships in the skydiving industry. Our Cessna Caravan holds 12 jumpers, and our flagship Twin Otter holds 23 jumpers, allowing you the opportunity to jump with your friends. No other parachute center in the world has newer planes than Skydive San Diego!

Jump Packages & Rates

13,000' Tandem Skydivefrom $199.00

After a brief training session, you will skydive from 13000 feet harnessed to a licensed tandem instructor. Freefalling for approximately 1 minute, you will taste adventure you never thought existed! Your instructor will deploy the parachute at about 5000 feet, and you will then enjoy a 5-6 minute parachute flight over Southern California’s stunning scenery. Landing softly in our grassy drop zone in front of your friends and family, you will be presented with a First Jump Certificate to proudly display! We specialize in making group skydives, so bring your friends and we will see to it that you all ride the same plane up! Nothing makes a better experience than riding to altitude with a group of your excited friends, and jumping from the same plane!

Solo Freefall Skydivefrom $319.00

The Accelerated Freefall (AFF) Training program is the most advanced and highly developed first-jump training program in the world. A comprehensive, 4-6 hr ground school will teach you everything you need to know to make a safe first-jump wearing your own parachute. You will learn about the sky diving equipment, the aircraft, the freefall, parachute flight, and even malfunctions and emergency scenarios. When ready, you will then ride one of our turbine jumpships to 13000 feet, and skydive! Two highly-trained AFF Instructors will exit the plane with you and assist you if needed. After nearly 1-minute of freefall, you will deploy your own parachute and fly it to a landing at our drop zone. You will be presented with a logbook to document your training and you will be on your way towards a lifetime of extreme adventure!

Your cameraflyer will be dedicated to you for your entire skydive – and, you get the added experience of seeing them fly and maneuver around just a few feet in front of you!
