When you come in, we'll have you endorse a couple of documents as an official waiver. This is a legally binding agreement, which in turn means that anyone who skydives and authorizes the document, must be at the very least 18 years old. This requirement is not only implemented when skydiving in Monterey, California, it is also mandatory throughout the United States.
How much it costs to skydive depends on the form of dive you reserve. For the best price, choose a tandem skydiving jump. Typically, rates depend also on the cost of gas and the current seasonal demand. To find out more about our pricing, please call us directly and let our professionals answer your questions.
Skydiving Near Monterey's video packages provide the very best recording options available. As a portion of the package, our videographers will carry out a short interview before you get on the airplane and on the plane as you climb to altitude. You'll receive the entire process of your jump as the videographer will make your jump with you in order to record your freefall as well. To record those last minutes of landing, the videographer will ground first.
You can use your own digital camera on the ground and let your friends use it when you jump. You can not, though, bring your own video camera aboard the aircraft or record your skydiving jump yourself.
The altitude that each skydive is performed at is dependent on the weather and wind for the day. Most tandem skydives are conducted at a maximum of 14,000 feet over the ground. You can expect to hit speeds of up to 120mph within the first few moments of your freefall.
For the most part, we do our best to ensure you have the best possible group to jump with. You might have the ability to jump all together, but consider a few things first. There is a very brief delay in between you and every other skydiver from the aircraft, which means that you may not freefall and parachute ride at the same time. A lot of our groups and partners choose to go on separate loads so that they can see their friends freefall and land.
You are more than welcome to bring family and friends to watch your skydiving jump. They can stay on the ground and watch the entire skydiving adventure from the viewing area. Non-jumpers are not permitted on the plane at any time.
