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.
