What You'll Get


Adventure-seekers use technology in unconventional ways, as evidenced by their tendency to jump out of airplanes and ride computer monitors down snowy mountains. Opt for a proven method of thrill-seeking with today’s Groupon to Skydive Sacramento. Choose between the following options:

  • For $129, you get a tandem skydive jump with 30 minutes of ground-school training (a $259 value).
  • For $154, you get an assisted free fall with eight hours of ground-school training (up to a $309 value).<p>

Solo jumps are only for experienced jumpers that have completed at least eight hours of ground training and tandem diving. Each option includes a 10% discount on photo or video packages.<p>

Skydive Sacramento’s skilled staff coaches divers in the fine art of gravity manipulation through safety-centered skydiving courses and certification coaching. Prior to each tandem jump, USPA-rated instructors instill divers with safety protocol and landing procedures during 20–30-minute ground-school sessions. Each student-instructor pair then dons free-falling formalwear such as a tandem harness, which binds them as inseparably as a marriage between glue moguls. After soaring to heights of up to 12,000 feet, four-legged free-fallers spring from aircraft bellies to climb downward at up to 120 miles per hour before opening chutes and sailing gracefully toward the 32-acre landing area. Alternatively, assisted-free-fall jumps send experienced divers on solo aerial endeavors with two AFF instructors, affording opportunities to showcase eight hours of learned expertise and intercept messages tied to helium balloons. For more information, see Skydive Sacramento’s FAQ page.

About Skydive Sacramento


Air rushes past you at 120 miles per hour while the California countryside unfolds thousands of feet below. Blue sky and empty space surround you, and the voice of your U.S. Parachute Association–rated instructor is the only sound you can hear above the wind. At 4,500 feet, the instructor pulls the parachute cord, and the two of you gently drift down to land in 32 acres of open, unobstructed grass. This is what divers experience during tandem skydives or jumps as a part of the Accelerated Freefall program at Skydive Sacramento.

Pilots at the helm of a 15-passenger King Air twin turbine, a four-passenger Cessna 182, or a five-passenger Cessna 206 take students to altitudes of up to 13,000 in as few as 15 minutes. Fitted securely with harnesses and chutes, participants can ask their diving instructor questions about the sport before plunging from the plane in a hands-on free fall and canopy flight, during which they learn steering and hot-air-balloon-avoidance tactics. Though the instructors cater to first-time divers, they also coach more experienced students toward their skydiving license. Instructors, many with 2,000 dives under their belt, also teach students to land in a main grass landing area or a high-performance area with swoop pond.
