tandem skydive

Tandem skydiving allows first-time jumpers to experience the thrill and excitement of the sport without the preparation and knowledge required for a solo jump. It only takes a brief training after which you will freefall harnessed to a highly skilled instructor from over two miles above the Earth, reaching speeds of up to 120 miles an hour. At the safe altitude of 5,000 feet the instructor will deploy the main parachute. If you choose, you can activate the parachute yourself, and then take in the majestic view of the San Joaquin Valley on the tranquil ride down.

Your USPA certified tandem instructor will wear a special glove equipped with two cameras, one for video and one for stills, with a special lens to capture the up-close footage of you in freefall. We dub, edit, and add music to personalize your video right after your jump. You will leave Skydive Taft with your own personal USB thumb drive of your video and digital photos for you to keep so you can share the experience of your greatest adventure with everyone!
