$125 for a Tandem Skydive ($199 Value)
After planes elevate them to about 8,000 feet above the earth's surface, instructors and divers perform a tandem jump and free fall for approximately one minute, accelerating to speeds of up to 120 mph. The parachute then flies open and carries divers and hitchhiking eagles on a four-minute glide back to the earth's surface. Meanwhile, friends and family can watch each adrenaline-packed moment from a spectator area.
More than 2 miles above the Russian River, a skydiver jumps from a plane, quickly accelerating to racecar speeds of 120 mph before a canopy opens above and glides the diver to earth amid views of neighboring clear waters, sprawling vineyards, and the San Francisco skyline. Located in the heart of wine country, NorCal Skydiving's professional staffers make it their mission to pass on these thrills to each customer regardless of skill level or ability to fly his or her own plane. During tandem jumps, experienced instructors and novice divers conjoin and jump together from a plane 13,000 feet in the air. Once students are hooked, instructors can coach them on advanced techniques, such as canopy flight, and then help them become licensed skydivers. Additionally, NorCal Skydiving's staff regularly parajumps into the U.S. Parachute Association to work as safety and training advisors.
