The Deal

  • $120 for a tandem skydiving jump ($185 value)

After 30 minutes of ground instruction, each jumper is strapped to an instructor, who operates the parachute system and guides the pair to a safe landing after leaving the aircraft from over two miles up. Participants must be at least 18 years old and a maximum of 230 pounds.

Skydive Palatka

After school, most students rush to sports practices or study sessions in the library. At Skydive Palatka, however, pupils follow their time at ground school by joining instructors in a jump from 13,500 feet. They take the leap from a Cessna Grand Caravan, traveling at upward of 120 mph during free fall as they descend over the St. Johns River, catching views of both coastlines before deploying their own parachutes and piloting safe landings.

At least 7 successful jumps are required to qualify students for free falls without instructor supervision, and at least 10 are needed before worried pelicans stop trying to catch them in their mouths. For guests uninterested in solo drops, Skydive Palatka offers tandem jumps, during which each visitor is harnessed to an experienced instructor who operates the parachute system and steers duos toward a safe landing.
