Never thought i would jump out of a plane but must say I am glad I did. It was a wonderful, fun experience. The staff is great and make you feel very comfortable. The video and pictures were outstanding. I would highly recommend doing this at least once in your life

Pros: The staff here are very friendly. There isn't a cheaper place in NorCal for skydiving (I think). The jump is fun and the folks know what they're doing. Cons: Well, I wished there was a bit of ocean to look at too while I jumped. Though Monterey is more expensive, it just might be worth the extra money coz... More

this was the last item on our tour of Cali. We did wine country, San Fran, Redwoods, PCH, L.A., 4-wheeling on Pismo Beach, Yosemite and Skydiving. Great people! You pay the owner $100 to jump. You are paired up with a sky dive professional who just loves to SD. He or she is a junkie. Jumps 6-10 times per day.... More

I gave myself the gift of a tandem freefall skydive advendure for my 60th birthday, and I was NOT disappointed! This was an incredible adventure that I highly recommend for anyone with the slightest interest. Cynthia, my experienced back-rider and ripcord puller, and Zac, the cameraman, were great and very professional. I don't know how long we actually fell before... More

My son's initially puchased a tandem jump for my husband a few years ago for Father's Day. It's now tradition that he and my adult sons always jump on each on of their birthday's. The staff at the Parachute Center are awesome. They make each jump exciting and fun. The photographers are available for an additional cost. Well worth the... More

My first jump was to get over my extreme fear of heights! I told myself I would do it before my 30th birthday, but instead it was ON my 30th. Thank goodness I got the instructor that I did. He was great! I went again with a friend for her birthday and at least SHE got a good instructor that... More

Bad customer service and worse FAA compliance. Don't go here if you want to have fun.
