$319 for Tandem Skydive for Two with Commemorative T-shirts ($568 Value)
Tandem skydives begin with a 30-minute training session to orient patrons with diving logistics. Each person is then harnessed to an expert before jumping out of a plane more than 2 miles in the air. After a 40-second free fall, jumpers can pull their own ripcords and ride on the wind for five to seven minutes as their parachutes carry them to the ground. Both participants will also receive a commemorative T-shirt.<p>
Desert Skydiving Center
Desert Skydiving Center carries people into the air in Cessna 182 and 206 planes and then sends them gleefully careening toward the ground. The center offers static parachuting, tandem jumping, and accelerated freefalls alongside experts. Participants can work with an instructor for 30-minutes to eight-hours, depending on the type of jump, before pulling on a parachute and jumping from two miles high. The ground grows rapidly as divers freefall with the wind whipping their faces before they pull the parachute cord and float to the ground or attempt to land on a passing goose.
