My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary with our first skydive and Caleb and Eric were amazing jump partners. Unfortunately the beach landing wasnt available but we were notified before purchase but we still were able to jump over the ocean which was incredible. I highly recommend this place and look forward to future visits! thank you guys!

“First jump,Awesome experience.”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

I rarely write reviews, but it is very important to recognise the people working hard to give a good experience/memory plus I took the decision to go there based on this website reviews, so its only fair that I also give feedback for future people looking for the same service.
I jumped with my friend on June 7th, the instructors were Alex(Me) and Caleb(my friend).
Due to heavy traffic we couldn't make it to our appointment on time so we called them and they
help us to reschedule it for a later jump(drove from SFO).Everybody was super helpful,at the moment we arrived everybody was super nice! you really feel comfortable and safe.
I hope to do my second jump with them or somebody as professional as they were.

We're a couple of virgin skydivers and were made to feel very comfortable. Amazing facilities, people were so friendly and Natasha on reception desk is absolutely lovely. Caleb and Volker were our jumpers and they made us so relaxed and we felt really safe, but also had such a laugh.

Views were amazing, the whole experience is just completely indescribable! If you're contemplating doing a sky dive then do it in Santa Cruz and do it with these guys, you won't regret it.

“EPIC !! Thrill of a lifetime !”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

I had such an amazing first experience with the crew at Skydive Surfcity !! Everybody was welcoming, knowledgeable and very experienced. My tandem master was Caleb. Awesome guy ! He pointed out beautiful sights as we were in the plane, truly amazing ! He asked if I wanted to do flips out of the plane... of course I do !!! The freefall was wild !! The view... INCREDIBLE !! What a rush !! We did some awesome spins and tricks ! I highly recommend skydive surfcity if you're going to jump. Absolutely the experience of a lifetime ! Get the video and the pictures. It's so fun to relive every moment and share it with friends and family !

Thank you Skydive Surfcity for for such a positive and memorable experience ! See you all again soon !
