For those who live in the San Francisco Bay Area, parachuting is one way to be immersed in the rich outdoor lifestyle so prevalent in Northern California. And if you are traveling to the Bay Area, skydiving is an activity that will guarantee your already exciting trip to "NorCal" will be the most unforgettable vacation of your life.
In either case, NorCal Skydiving, in the heart of California wine country, can make sure your foray into the thrilling world of skydiving is affordable and memorable.
NorCal Skydiving employs only United States Parachute Association licensed instructors. Most beginners will make their first jumps in tandem, meaning they will be harnessed securely to an expert jump master. The jump master will guide you on your first free fall, then operate the parachute, allowing you to experience the exhilaration of your first jump – and speeds of up to 120 miles an hour – without having to worry about equipment.
Those who wish to move beyond the tandem jump can try Accelerated Free Fall, in which one to two instructors accompany the student on a jump. Once the student has completed seven levels of AFF training, he or she can become certified for solo jumps.
A Bay Area skydive is unlike one anywhere else because Bay Area skydiving offers skydivers the added benefit of unfettered, panoramic views of beautiful Northern California. If you are fortunate enough to live here, you are familiar with all the beauty this area has to offer. On a Bay Area skydive, you will see 360-degree views that include the San Francisco skyline; the San Francisco Bay and its remarkable bridges; the lush, verdant stretches of the fertile California wine country of Napa and Sonoma; crystal clear lakes and streams; majestic mountains and redwood forests; and, of course, the mighty Pacific Ocean and its coast. Skydiving lets you see your surroundings in a new, beautiful way.
