Skydiving in Pismo Beach
When was the last time you crossed something off your bucket list? Looking for an adrenaline rush this summer? Ever thought about jumping out of a plane?! Now is your time to take the plunge.
If you haven’t been skydiving before or are seeking a thrill, Skydive Pismo Beach is the place to go. Skydiving has always been on my bucket list and this summer, I finally took the leap of faith while visiting the Central Coast.
Skydiving is a full day experience so prepare yourself for a fun-filled day of adventure. Upon arrival to Skydive Pismo Beach, you watch an informative safety video and sign your liability release form. Then, you meet your new best friend… otherwise known as the highly trained and reassuring instructor you will be jumping with.
From there, it’s wardrobe time! The instructor supplies skydivers with a flying squirrel suit, goggles, and harnesses that staff double and triple check. After a 10-minute shuttle ride to the airstrip, the plane takes off and climbs in elevation for about 20 to 30 minutes until you reach the exit altitude. Depending on the height of the jump you choose, starting at 8,000 feet and capping off at 13,000 feet, your freefall can range between 30 to 90 seconds. Before landing, skydivers enjoy a descent under the parachute for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Before you know it, it’s JUMP time! Once airborne, the beautiful coastline views over the beach, mountains and vineyards almost distract you from the fact that you’ve just jumped out of an airplane. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, paying back a bet, or crossing an item off your bucket list, you’ll love the thrill of skydiving along the Central Coast. To capture the adventure, check out Skydive Pismo Beach’s photo and video packages that are available for purchase – just in case your friends don’t take your word for it.
Whether it’s your 18th birthday or your 80th, pick your new lucky day, and take the plunge!
