After enduring unending weeks of rain and low cloud which kept us grounded up in Canada, we decided to make the 15 hour (plus pit stops) drive down to The Parachute Center north of Lodi, California so I could get in a few days of mid week skydiving. It was worth it!! As an experienced skydiver, after the usual review... More

The most fun thing the central valley has to offer. Feeling blah? Stuck in a rut? Just need some motivation or a new outlook on life?? This is it! The instructor was thorough and methodical in preparing for our jump. He was great at communicating what to expect at each step of our adventure. I felt safe and as a... More

Had an awesome jump on July 16th We arrived at 9:00am to jump for my daughters 18th birthday and were the first tandems of the day. Everybody that we talked to were friendly and great. The atmosphere is a little like being with the climbers at base camp of Mt. Everest or Venice Beach with the surfers. These guys and... More

I was reading the instructions and the guy came and said"no one reads the instruction" and was making fun of me. Further ahead I realized that the were rushing for everything, I kind of find if unorganized. I feel the place and the plane and their equipments are really old. Even the instruction video was very old. If safety if... More

This was our second visit as a family - we last went seven years ago and just had to repeat the experience. As before, everything from getting the admin done, through basic training to the jump itself was simple and hassle free. This is how is should be. Loved it, perfect weather as before, great instructors though some of the... More

This is an amazing experience!! I am 70 yrs old and do enjoy skiing, heli skiing, mountain biking and backpacking. I have had some great experiences with those adventures BUT I just can't adequately describe the experience of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at 13,000 feet above ground level!! It may not be an experience for the faint... More

This is the coolest experience I've ever lived and the people at PC made it so. The place is super laid back yet very professional. The parachuters made me feel constantly safe and super excited. In the end you don't have much time to think twice about what you're about to do. Before you know it you're on a free... More

OMG!!! This place is the BEST! I read good reviews prior to coming here from Pennsylvania while on vacation in the San Francisco area. Came here upon request from my 18 year old daughter.

It was the best experience ever. I wasn't as afraid as I thought I'd be. My videographer (Cassy) and tandem (Lucas) made me comforter, helped me relax and prepped me for a safe and GREAT experience. Thanks, you two! It was the perfect way to send off my 20s. Hello, 30! It is the least expensive and in my experience,... More
