Your Tandem Skydiving destination for Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area!
You've watched others do it, seen the videos and photos, and thought to yourself, "I've really gotta try that one day". Well don't put it off any longer, let Bay Area Skydiving make that dream a reality today! Imagine the thrill of up to 60 seconds of freefall! The serenity of floating under a parachute with nothing around you!
A Tandem Skydive is the best and easiest way to make your first skydive. It's a fun, low stress, introduction to sport parachuting. After filling out a few simple forms, you'll be paired with one of our experienced Skydiving Instructors, who will guide you through the entire process and answer any questions you may have. All of our Instructors are USPA rated, highly trained and very experienced. If you choose [video, or photo, or both,] now is also when you'll meet your freefall videographer, who will start documenting your adventure.
Nothing compares with the exhilaration and pure adrenaline of skydiving!
First you'll be fitted with a jumpsuit and harness. Your instructor will adjust the harness to fit you in the most comfortable manner possible. Then he or she will briefly discuss the basics of freefall body position, and what you can do to help yourself have the best time possible. Then you'll board your waiting aircraft for a scenic ride to jump altitude. The ride to altitude is a good time to ask your instructor any questions you may still have about the sport of skydiving. Just prior to departure form the aircraft your instructor will verify that everything is ready for the jump and will ask you if you are "ready to make a skydive?"
The next minute will be the most exciting of your life! The thrill of freefalling at up to 120 miles an hour is a sensation that cannot be put into words. After the parachute opens you'll be amazed at the peace and serenity of canopy flight as you receive hands on instruction on parachute flight, shortly before you're brought back to a soft safe landing back on mother earth. You'll be thrilled, you'll be amazed, and you'll wonder what took you so long!
