As other reviewers have said "it was on his list" so I finally gave in and got him a gift certificate for Christmas last year. We live in Santa Barbara and drove to Lompoc last weekend to try to jump but the weather had other ideas. Skydive SB takes the weather and safety very seriously and you have to respect... More

Great customer service and fabulous skydiving experience! I called last minute and I was jumping out of a plane at 13,000 feet 2 hours later! The tandem instructors were also fabulous as they took very good care of me and my 18 year old daughter. I recommend these guys!

It was my first time skydiving and the staff made it an amazing first time experience. Robin was my instructor who liked to play around and scare me but was very professional when it came to serious safety concerns. The scariest part of it was the flight up. It feels amazing on the way down, nothing like a roller coster... More

This skydive is actually located in Lompac, just up the highway from Santa Barbara. This was my first skydive. The staff and crew are very friendly. I felt safe and confident throughout the entire adventure. Sean was my tandem buddy; very experienced and fun. I would do this again.

The most thrilling adventure I have done till now.. it was real fun!! They brief u initially which actually scares you cause they would tell you all the possible ways you could die!! but reassuringly the maximum anyone has gone through is a sprained ankle .. so its probably quite safe. The plain would go about 13000ft and they its... More

This was on my bucket list, and the experience did not let me down! Upon arrival the staff was helpful and got us all set up to jump quickly and efficiently. We watched a safety video, got suited up, chatted with our tandem jump instructors, and then we were whisked off into the plane! I thought the instructors were very... More

Staff was incredibly rude and unhelpful--my concerns over the condition of the equipment and safety risks were met with bothered and impatient responses from staff. I decided against going out with them, as I did not feel confident that they had my best interest in mind.

IF you are visiting in the Santa Barbara area and are looking for a great family memory you must skydive with this company. About a 45 minute drive north in beautiful scenery. We reserved the early jump and had to wait for the cloud cover to burn off. Other than that, everything was great. The jumpers who went tandem with... More

I strongly recommend everyone to try this once in their life time. About Sky Dive Santa Barbara: facts: 1. My instructor was Chris. Great guy, very friendly, clearly explains everything you need to know and a... More

I just jumped this morning, and it was wonderful! Great people at the desk, all timely & efficient, you do have to sign your life away & absolve them of all responsibility, but totally worth it!
