The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a tandem skydive at Skydive San Diego (a $249 value). Flights take off and land in Jamul.

Located next to the gorgeous Lower Otay Reservoir, Skydive San Diego takes aspiring free fallers on a heart-racing skydive, where they’ll absorb picturesque views of the Pacific beach during the freefall, about one minute long, and the five-minute parachute ride. With the tandem skydive, sky swimmers will be harnessed with a professional, experienced instructor who will ensure the jump goes smoothly and safely. After one full minute of blissful plummeting, the instructor will pull the chute and skydivers will gently drift back to the ground, where friends and family can watch from Skydive San Diego’s facilities. The gentle, consistent winds in San Diego make for optimal skydiving conditions, which draw training missions from the United States Navy, United States Air Force, the Kazakhstan Airborne Polo League, and the United States Marine Corps. Skydive San Diego offers top-of-the-line equipment, including Twin Otter and Cessna jumpships, which are the safest and largest planes the industry has to offer.

  • Next thing I know, we're out the plane and do a back flip!!...Free fall was amazing! Words can not describe this feeling. – Chris V., Yelp

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 deck for barbecuing post-jump feasts.
