Skydive Maryland's team of experienced sky surfers has been escorting adrenaline seekers on 2-mile jumps since 1974. After a brief training session and couture-jump-suit fitting, adventurers fly to roughly 11,000 feet, where they barrel roll from the plane while strapped to a seasoned instructor. Exhilarating, 120-miles-per-hour free falls last for roughly one minute before the guides activate the parachute and jumpers coast through the atmosphere for 8–15 minutes, soaking in views of the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Baltimore skyline. Cloud cutters will receive before and after photos of their adventure to have proof of their extreme bravery and to earn respect from egotistical eagles. Skydives are available Saturdays and Sundays during the winter season, weather permitting.
For a company that has pushed more than 1.5 million people out of planes during the course of 38 years, Skydive Baltimore enjoys a top-notch reputation among adrenaline-seeking sky travelers. Tandem skydivers pair off with their trusty instructor before ascending to 11,000 feet, taking in views of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay as they discover what gravity feels like 2 miles above the ground. Divers can commemorate their jumps with video and photographic evidence captured by their instructor, a third jumper, or a borrowed spy satellite.
