Get Your Skydive License

Your adventure in becoming a licensed skydiver can begin after you’ve completed a tandem skydive at Skydive Monterey Bay. A tandem skydive is the safest, easiest, and widely the most popular method to do your first jump. However, it is an introduction to the sport of skydiving. There’s much more to discover and learn. In fact, once you get your skydive license and acquire even basic human flight skills you’ll be amazed at the range of capabilities in this three-dimensional world where we bend the rules of physics for moments at a time.

To get started, you can enroll in our Accelerated Freefall (AFF) program. AFF is a seven (7) level, learn to skydive solo program that utilizes in-air freefall coaching. It is the most progressive and safest way to learn how to become a skydiver. During the first three levels, two instructors jump with the student while holding their harness. In subsequent levels, the student jumps with a single instructor.

Each level provides an opportunity to learn new freefall and canopy piloting skills that will help progress you to the ultimate goal of being an epic solo licensed skydiver. Once you’ve graduated from AFF, you’ll only need to achieve a handful of additional requirements (e.g. 25 jumps total, some additional freefall and parachute skills, and “A” license written exam) to get your “A” license. Your “A” license enables you to jump all over the world, and in small groups with other certified skydivers.

As an advanced solo skydiver, you can learn to fly your body in any orientation, at a variety of speeds, and in formations with large groups of your new flying friends. That freedom, adrenalin rush, in the present moment feeling, being able to do things with your body that mostly no one else on this planet gets to experience are the reasons Why We Jump.

Weather That Can Cause Skydiving Delays

Turbulent winds, low clouds and fog are weather conditions that may delay skydiving. We understand that no one wants to wait but we will only skydive in safe conditions. Your safety and ours will never be compromised.

Skydive Monterey Bay monitors weather closely using satellite, radar and visual observation tools. If there is a high probability that the weather will not be conducive for jumping we will call you and reschedule your jump for another day of your choice.

Please be advised that weather changes rapidly, without notice and is unfortunately beyond our control. If unfavorable weather moves in unexpectedly, we may encounter delays, or perhaps, may be required to reschedule jumps.

Skydiving Is No Substance Zero Tolerance Activity

No, absolutely not! Skydiving is a 100% sober sport.

Absolutely no drugs or alcohol may be consumed within eight hours prior to your skydive. Anyone that does not adhere to this rule will not be permitted to skydive and will be asked to leave the premises.

Minimum Age To Skydive in California

Yes. You must be at least 18 years old to skydive. There is no maximum age limit. We don’t believe you’re ever too old to have this much fun.

Skydiving Weight Limits

If you meet the weight limitations and you are in reasonable physical condition, you can probably participate in skydiving.

Any potential jumper weighing more than 220 LBs may be subject to additional restrictions. In this case, please give us a call at 831-384-3483 to discuss.

 

Only Experienced Skydivers Can Jump With Cameras

The United States Parachute Association mandates that skydivers must have at least a “C” License, 200 skydives, and have adequate skydiving skills before wearing a camera on a jump. Due to risk and regulations, you are NOT allowed to take your own camera or mobile device in/on our airplane, or on your jump.

You can still get that perfect Instagram shot over Monterey Bay, or the most intense moment when you take that big step off the airplane at 18,000 feet. We offer a variety of video and picture packages that offer more perspective beyond what you could even possibly capture (or even imagine) with your own handheld camera.  You can get an inside, selfie-style, perspective from an instructor’s hand that captures all of the freefall and parachute flight, an outside, “broader” perspective from an additional outside video flyer that will provide the best freefall shots of the bay by flying in multiple orientations, or both.

Skydive Monterey Bay operates in proximity to residential and commercial areas, in addition to public infrastructure. Without the proper skydiving gear and training, you run the risk of dropping these devices into occupied areas. This could cause serious injury or damage.
