To the surprise of many, tandem skydiving is the one of the safest action sports. Skydiving has been proven repeatedly to be safer than horseback riding, kayaking, mountain biking and other adventure activities.

More than 500,000 Americans safely make their first jump every year. Today’s gear, training and operational procedures have almost eliminated major incidents from tandem skydives.

Our record proves that you’re in good hands. Skydive Monterey Bay has one of the best safety records in the industry. We use the very best gear in the industry and have extremely experienced instructors and staff. We strictly follow all protocols, rules and best practices set forth by the United States Parachute Association.

While extremely infrequent, injuries can occur just as they can from playing baseball, football, skateboarding or any other sporting activity.
