For all those adventure enthusiasts and adrenaline seekers out there, I have found your next expedition. Skydiving is on most people's bucket list but not many of them actually do get to tick it off. Some say the time wasn't right, the family came in between, or they were simply too lazy to book the adventure.

Skydive Santa Barbara is located just north of Lompoc City and offers various packages for those planning to do a skydive in Santa Barbara County. They offer to jump from several heights including the highest tandem skydive possible which is from 18 000 feet. Disregarding which height you are going to choose, you will always get an ocean view from up there.

The Company has been operating since 1997 and has claimed to have done over 300 000 skydivers. With a clean safety record, they have been operating daily for the last 15 years.

The skydive center offers various ceremonies for your event of choice. Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, engagements, and weddings can be celebrated here. Just contact them with your choice and they are going to make your dream come true.

The skydiving school of Skydive Santa Barbara also offers training courses for those who want to learn to jump by themselves. After finishing your first two tandem skydive the program starts with a 4-6 hour ground training before you get the chance to do your first solo jump. But there is no need to panic. A fully licensed and certified instructor will be guiding and helping you in the air to get all the necessary skills done before you are left alone for self-supervision.

Once you have finished your training course it is time to build up some experience. If you are keen on continuing the sport you can get your USPA license which will allow you to jump across the States on various dropzones and even across the world on selected skydiving locations that cooperate with the United States Parachuting Association.

Have you ever been skydiving before? If not, this dropzone in Lompoc should be on your list.
