Skydive Bay Area Deals: What to Look For

Published: September 6, 2020

Skydiving is one of the greatest things you can do. Nothing can put into words the feeling of flying through the air. Here at San Jose Skydiving Center, we know there are lots of locations to choose from to skydive the Bay Area - indeed, we offer some of the best ones!

Here, we'll explain some of the deals around and what you should expect to pay for a Bay Area skydive.

How Much Does A Bay Area Skydive Typically Cost?

Most people skydiving for the first time in the Bay Area choose to make a tandem skydive. This is where you're attached to an experienced instructor and they'll be responsible for the operation of the parachute.

You just need a short brief before you go, where you'll learn the basics of the freefall body position and how the parachute works.

A tandem skydive with us is $189.00. This includes:

  • A full pre-jump brief

  • Use of the equipment such as jumpsuit, goggles and gloves

  • Around 60 seconds of freefall time

  • Around 5 minutes of parachute flying time

  • A post-jump certificate to help you remember your experience

You can pay an additional supplement of $99 to have your skydive filmed and photographed, giving you a lasting memory of your first-ever tandem skydiving experience.

Experienced skydivers can also jump with us for a price of $25 per lift.

Cheap Bay Area Skydive Deals

You may have come across cheap skydiving deals that offer you discounts on your jump. The thing to bear in mind with these deals is that you get what you pay for. Cheaper deals are often made by agencies who don't run skydiving facilities themselves or by skydiving centers which invest less in their equipment, pay their staff less and may not be USPA members.

If you're unsure at all about the skydiving center, it's well worth visiting the dropzone or visiting their website to learn more about them before you book.
