tandem skydive

Tandem skydiving is the safest and easiest way for first-time jumpers to experience the thrill and excitement of the sport. After just a brief training, you will be harnessed to a highly skilled instructor and freefall from over two miles above the Earth, reaching speeds of up to 120 miles an hour. At the safe altitude of 5,500 feet, either you or the instructor will deploy the main parachute and take in the majestic view of the San Joaquin Valley on the tranquil ride down.

With our video packages, you can even capture the event. Your United States Parachute Association (USPA) certified tandem skydiving 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 with video and digital photos of your experience so you can share the adventure with your friends and family!
