What Is Tandem Skydiving?
Tandem skydiving is one of the most popular ways to skydive for the first time.
As a tandem 'student', you'll be securely attached to a highly experienced and qualified tandem instructor. Your instructor is responsible for managing the skydive, opening the parachute and bringing you safely back down to the ground, leaving you to enjoy every moment of this incredible experience.
What To Expect on Your Tandem Skydive
We hope you'll choose Skydive Pismo Beach for your tandem skydive. We're pretty lucky here to have some of the very best views in the country. It's a great place to jump and to hang out - there's loads to do in the local area too.
You'll book your tandem skydive for the day of your choice. We'll give you a time slot and ask that you arrive on or before that time. On the day, we'll welcome you and get you registered before inviting you to relax while you wait for your jump.
When it's your turn, your tandem instructor will get you ready by fitting you with your harness, which attaches you to them during the skydive. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing.
The journey to your exit altitude is really exciting. Your instructor will point out landmarks and great views along the way, before getting you ready to jump.
Then, it's time to go! After jumping from the plane, you'll freefall at 120mph with views of the Pacific Ocean for around a minute. Your instructor will open your parachute and you'll fly back down to the ground, spending around five minutes taking in the incredible views of the central coast and Pismo Beach. You'll land back at the dropzone, where your friends and family can watch and cheer you on.
How Much Does It Cost?
We offer a range of tandem skydiving packages and video/photo packages to document those special memories. Find out more over on our pricing page.
