  • Skydive Holister
    The instructors at Skydive Hollister conduct their highest jumps at 18,000 feet—the greatest height from which one can dive without supplemental oxygen. Even at this altitude, they have to pump oxygen into the plane’s cockpit before a jump. Once outside, the 120 mile-per-hour free falls last little more than one minute. They help students navigate this rapid descent on tandem dives, during which they strap into the same harness as their student and coach them in proper body position, steering, and parachute release over the sound of roaring wind. At 5,000 feet, instructors deploy the parachute and instruct their partner in parachute control and landing techniques as the blue waters of Monterey Bay and the hills of San Francisco unfold below. Instructors also train students seeking skydiving licenses through two programs. In the Accelerated Free-Fall program, they teach skydiving principles and technical basics in a four- to six-hour ground school before strapping students into their own parachutes for seven jumps. The Instructor-Assisted Free-Fall program precedes this solo training with two tandem skydives, during which instructors teach their protégés the basics of free-fall turns, altitude awareness, and filling in for the lead goose flying in V-formation.

  • iFly SF Bay
    At iFLY, "indoor flying" means something way cooler than jumping on your bed at home. There are helmets involved. Here's how it works: you show up, suit up, and go through an orientation lesson with expert instructors before lifting off in an air column powered by a combined 1,600 horsepower worth of giant fans. The column is forceful enough to simulate the experience of dropping through the sky, even though flyers are just inches from the ground. As with outdoor skydiving, the flying experience lasts for about a minute but with the earn your wings package flyers get two flights, and may be able to execute turns and tricks at the instructor's discretion.

  • Bay Area Skydiving
    What do you get when you combine USPA-certified skydiving instructors, Beechcraft and Cessna aircraft, and the beautiful rolling landscape of Northern California? It's Bay Area Skydiving, whose safe and enjoyable jumps help clients cross a big-time goal off of their bucket lists. Veterans of thousands of jumps, instructors teach students the essentials so jumpers can revel in the adrenaline of a 60-second freefall at 120 miles per hour before their parachutes ease them back to terra firma. Instructors also accompany novice jumpers on tandem jumps, often accompanied by the company's USPA-certified videographers, who produce a movie of the whole experience—from gearing up, jumping, and soaring until the minute you land and shake the excess clouds from your hair.

  • Skydive Monterey Bay
    At 18,000 feet in the air, the view is peaceful: Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz sprawled out below, bordered by the immense blue of the Pacific Ocean. And yet, this view is also exhilarating—it means you're about to leap out of a plane and fall at 120 miles per hour. Luckily, if it's your first time with Skydive Monterey Bay, you'll be strapped to a tandem instructor. These coaches take their guests up to one of the world's highest jumps, in one of the fastest jump planes. Their mission is to balance the right amount of thrills with the utmost consideration for safety, whether they're with a skydiving newbie or an experienced parachuter. In addition to leading—and filming—first-time jumps, they host one-on-one lessons and accelerated freefall training for students who want to dive on their own. They can teach visitors to pack their own parachute, fall in different postures, and frighten William Shatner on the wing of a plane, all before coming back to earth. And according to their FAQs, landing is as gentle as "stepping off the curb."

  • Skydive Surf City
    Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane certainly kickstarts the adrenaline glands. But after the free fall, with the parachute open, what becomes paramount is the view. Fortunately Skydive Surf City has that covered. The company's tandem dives aim for a landing field that's just inland from the coast, meaning the whole way down divers will be able to look across miles and miles of ocean blue.
