The Deal

  • $325 for a 13,000-foot tandem skydive for two (a $498 value)

Adventurers dive harnessed to a licensed instructor by a state-of-the-art Sigma Tandem Rig during the tandem skydive. After jumping out of the plane, participants experience one minute of free fall, then release the parachute to enjoy a five- to seven-minute glide over Southern California. A preliminary instructional class on skydiving regulations prepares jumpers for their dives, and after landing, participants take home a keepsake First Jump Certificate.

Skydive San Diego

To the uninitiated, the dusty, mountainous expanse just north of the Mexico border might sound like a war-torn battleground—it has borne the boots of soldiers in the US Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. However, the troops simply visited to practice plane evacuations at Skydive San Diego, whose private, skydiving-only airport is buffeted by steady winds and outfitted with state-of-the-art Cessna and DeHavilland jump planes.

Civilians can jump there too, drinking in views of the Pacific before leaping out of an aircraft for solo jumps or tandem dives, in which a USPA-certified instructor is securely attached to the jumper with professional harnesses and a powerful hug. With 8,000 square feet of padded packing area, the full-service facility not only houses an airport but also a bunkhouse for overnight stays and a deck for barbecuing post-jump feasts.
