Skydive San Diego has been servicing the skydiving community for over 25...

Skydive San Diego has been servicing the skydiving community for over 25 years. In 2016, Skydive San Diego is currently owned and operated by a former Navy SEAL and former member of the famed US Navy Parachute Team, the Leapfrogs. The vision is to transform the drop zone into one of the premier skydiving destinations in the world.

A tandem skydive from 13,000 feet above a view of the ocean, Mexico and mountains is like none offered anywhere. It is an incredible experience and should be on everyone’s to-do list. Our tandem instructors are some of the best in the world and will make your experience awesome every time. Come out with your friends, family and they can participate with you or watch you go through all the steps and cheer you on as you land right in front of them. We are one of the few drop zones in the San Diego area that offer this type of experience.

Experienced skydivers can also receive coaching, a full-service rigging loft, and load organizing.

Skydive San Diego caters to adrenaline junkies who prefer to skydive solo, offering First Jump Courses (FJC) through the USPA Certified Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) program for those who wish to begin their skydiving journey.

For fun jumpers there are even more options to advance with a dedicated flight school, which offers formation skydiving, freefly, canopy, and wingsuit coaching by some of the most talented skydiving instructors.

Instructors at Skydive San Diego are some of the most experienced in the world and have several thousands of jumps each. Many are world record holders, and all are friendly, approachable, down-to-earth, and dedicated to helping their students.

A one-stop destination for skydivers, skydiving enthusiasts and visitors, Skydive San Diego offers experiences that last a lifetime.

Skydive San Diego operates the drop zone to the highest safety standards. We have some of the best skydiving aircraft, equipment and riggers in the industry. Skydive San Diego is also where many of Americas most elite military train receive their solo jump certifications.

On my seventieth birthday I took what I would call was a leap of faith! I jumped out of a plane in tandem at 13,000 feet with an expert ski diver at Otay Mesa, south of San Diego. We free fell 10,000 feet and then deployed the parachute for the final 3000 feet. I had an awesome view of the... More

I consider myself a ground-lover and not an adrenaline junky. More on the timid side, I jumped with my daughter for her birthday. I was scared. Really scared. But there is a weird calming vibe among all the guys running around the place, like this is normal to jump out of a plane. Leaving the safety of the plane was... More

Oh my gosh. This was on my bucket list, and at age 66 I finally went skydiving. Making reservations is a good idea. We got there at 9am, filled out paperwork on health, release etc. Had about five minutes of instruction. Got fitted in our harnesses and waited for our tandum instructor. Mine was very sweet and lots of fun.... More
