No other skydive experience comes close to competing!
There is no city anywhere, in the continental U.S and beyond, that offers a hands-down better, more exhilarating skydiving experience than San Diego. Among premier locations such as Mount Everest and Livingstone, you would be foolish not to indulge your thirst for aerial adventure above this bustling, coastal metropolis. Whether you are a newcomer or seasoned skydiver, your incentive should be to find not just the most affordable and accommodating package, but the one that inspires the free faller in you. If you, like many others, love watching dusk descend and the molten sun slide under the horizon, leaving waves of fuchsias and reds, then be prepared to have your mind blown. Skydiving with Parachuting.com gives you the golden opportunity to witness the legendary sunsets of San Diego from a bird’s eye view- and afterwards, when you hang out with your buddies, share your experience and make them jealous.

Vacation for fun, not just to get away.
When heading down to La Jolla beach for a swim or visiting Balboa Park doesn’t cut it anymore, or if you live further inland and are seeking the vacation experience of a lifetime, then look no further than the skydiving scene in San Diego. Chances are, if you’re a certified Californian, there is not much about this incredible city you haven’t seen: from the eclectic architecture and cultural impact of Balboa Park, to the San Diego Zoo which, renowned for its size and variety of wildlife, is also home to over three thousand endangered animals.
So why not take a walk, or in this case skydive, on the wild side? Skip out on the Gaslamp Quarter, you’ve been there a million times. Instead, drink in the exhilaration of a freefall, conquer your fears, and take in the magnitude of one of the busiest and stunning seaside communities on the planet.
Earn your courage with a Tandem dive!
With Parachuting.com, a Tandem Jump is your gateway to embracing the unmatched sensation of slicing freely through the air. If you’ve never been skydiving before, then have no fear- our FAA certified instructors will assist you at every step, from the moment you take off, to when you make your perfect landing.
A free fall from 14,000 feet above ground might sound daunting, sure, but with our experts at the helm, you will have a safe descent, and an incredible aerial adventure you can share with all of your friends. Any seasoned skydiver will tell you, there is nothing quite like the stunning view of a scintillating blue sky, threaded by wispy, silver clouds, with the jeweled sea stretching infinitely beyond the bustling shoreline.
To get started, there are a few crucial details to keep in mind.
First, be sure to arrive at our facility early, so you can become accustomed with the procedure, and determine where friends and family will be waiting for you. Secondly, you will meet with your certified instructor, who will disclose what to expect during the tandem skydive and how to position yourself, followed by a video to further explain safety procedures.
Your instructor will then help to equip the both of you with the necessary gear, including the tandem harness, goggles, and three sets of chutes: the primary, the back up and the Drogue parachute.
The latter is designed specifically to provide the necessary wind resistance to slow acceleration for tandem skydivers, making for a peaceful landing.
If you’re still nervous, don’t be- your instructor will board alongside you, motion you to the proper launch position, and have your back the entire way down. Then, be the envy of onlookers as you casually dust off after your descent, with blood-pumping speeds reaching 120 mph.
Get comfortable, and watch the action unfold.
If skydiving is often considered an ‘extreme’ sport, then our drop zones at Parachuting.com are its antithesis in the best way possible. Our drop zones offer comfortable waiting areas for friends and family equipped with frontrow seating, and most often include a wealth of amenities, such as picnic tables, food, and drinks available for purchase. If you’re planning to watch a loved one or colleague fearlessly tear through the sky, why not do it cozily? To find out more about what amenities are offered at our San Diego location, contact our friendly staff at 1-800-672-8942.
Capture the magic from fall to finish!
Apart from this great spread of comforts and conveniences, we also allow our guests to videotape the whole skydive, so that the experience won’t just be reminisced over, but kept in full HD glory for friends and family to enjoy. But think- what good will it do you, the prospective professional skydiver, if you’re only taped within eyeshot on the last stretch when you’re parachute has already been deployed? To remedy this, we provide a plethora of choices, from having a professional photographer capture the entire breathtaking descent alongside you, or having your tandem instructor equipped with a hand camera.

Excellence in skydive instruction for all.
If you love skydiving, and are prepared to take that passion to the next professional or solo level, then you need the diamond standard in skydiving education. Our friendly, FAA certified instructors offer two main styles of training: the AFF, or Accelerated Free Fall, and the Static Line Progression. As the name suggests, the AFF is not only a great way for getting acquainted with the solo descent, but provides a faster alternative to earning your certification through 7 progressive steps.
These 7 steps are partitioned into 2 sections
The first involves learning about altitude, body position and proper chute deployment, whereas the second deals with more advanced aerial skills, such as turns and docking. By the end of the first section, you will perform your first solo free fall.
A major distinction is that AFF requires an initial 7 hours of ground instruction before the first free fall, whereas the SLP requires 5 assisted dives first to assess proper technique. Both, however, require a total of 25 jumps to obtain full certification.
Your first AFF skydive will commence only when you are completely prepared. During your free fall from 10-14,000 feet above ground, two AFF certified skydive instructors will dive alongside you using the HHT, or Harness Hold Training method, maintaining physical contact and ensuring your first free fall is a safe one.
Static Line Progression
The SLP training is more traditional, having the student dive from 3,000 feet above ground attached to a ‘static line’, which is connected to the aircraft via the main canopy. This alternative is often more comfortable, as each successive dive is followed by 15 minutes of ground instruction; and after 2, still assisted by the static line, you will perform 3 more while applying the chute before commencing your first solo free fall.
Call 1-800-672-8942 for the definitive standard in free fall education.

Don’t just experience it, carve it in stone.
Actions always speak louder than words. What good would it do you, ranting ad infinitum about your incredible skydiving experience, when instead you can show them? At Parachuting.com we offer exceptional, competitively priced options for videotaping your entire descent, from the instant you step on the aircraft to the moment you land. Our filming choices are superior for 2 reasons. First off, you will not be allowed to supply your own camera; secondly, if instead you have a friend or family member filming from the drop zone, they’ll only be able to capture the final moments as you gently parachute down. We offer 2 great videotaping options; the first of which enables a professional videographer to dive alongside you.
Albeit a bit higher priced than the GoPro option, having that third-person perspective means the videographer can record everything, from your first thoughts before entering the plane, to all of your various screams and facial expressions throughout the descent.
The GoPro option is more affordable and, giving the camera to your Tandem Jump instructor, provides a powerful, lasting first-person experience. Both video packages provide a CD copy, so that you, your friends and anyone on social media can share in the excitement.
Share your skydiving passion and make history.
It takes a steady heart and a brave constitution to make a Tandem Jump from 14,000 feet above ground- it takes an even steadier hand to expertly control a camera, capturing every glorious moment of a dive. Doing what you already love, and carving a career out of it, is match made in heaven. There are, however, a few pertinent steps necessary for becoming a professional Camera Flyer. The first, although fairly obvious, is to become an FAA certified professional skydiver, which involves completing either the AFF or SLP training programs and a total of 25 successful dives. At Parachuting.com, all of our seasoned instructors are FAA certified, meaning you become eligible to earn your FAA skydiving license while you learn.
There’s no possible way of getting better at anything without some practice. So, now that you’re a licensed skydiving badass, it’s time to take a look at camera options. There are a dizzying number of options available to the prospective Camera Flyer, with a wide array of prices and designs. The GoPro is possibly the cheapest and most compact choice, the frame itself only costing roughly $30. Whichever you choose, you are limited only by your ambition.
