Skydiving over Monterey Bay

We kept talking about Skydiving last year and I think the time has now come to finally take the plunge (no pun intended). Sunny days are here and this weather is awesome for a sky diving session.

Therefore, I am proposing a skydiving trip to Monterey, sometime early next month. This should be on a weekend.

Tandem skydiving (for first timers) with $20 discount that comes to $179 for parties of 13 or more. This is 15,000 feet jump. It will take us a 1.5 hour drive to Monterey (2 hours for some folks), therefore an early morning drive would be awesome.

We can top it up with some great sea food lunch in one of the local restaurants in the 17 mile drive area.

Let me know what you folks think. We need a party of 10 or more to make this fun!

      1 · April 25, 2014

  • Asif A.

    My number is[masked] in case you would need to coordinate or ask questions.

    Please plan to be there by 10.30AM tomorrow. I will be doing a final weather check today at 3.30pm (that is the time that they get the updated weather for tomorrow). For now, it looks like it is going to be cloudy, so wear something comfortable and warm..

    April 25, 2014

  • Najia T.

    I already hav a groupon purchased a few months ago. It says "Tandem skydive from 8000 feet from skydive hollister" and the other one says:"Tandem jump from 9000 or 13000 feet from skydiving Sacramento". Kindly let me know if I could use any of them.

    April 24, 2014

    • Asif A.

      This is a skydive from Monterey and unfortunately both the coupons would not work. But I believe it is a great deal - 15k feet for about $180. You will have to call[masked] and pay $50 as a registration fee and pay rest via cash in person at the time of the event or via a card.

      April 24, 2014

    • Najia T.

      I know but it's a little expensive for me so I thought if I could use this unused voucher?

      April 24, 2014

  • Asif A.

    Folks - Can you please confirm your registration today?. I checked yesterday and there were only 5 registrations.

    Appreciate your response ASAP.

    April 24, 2014

    • Heidi K.

      Hazlind, the scariest part is jumping from the plane. After that you feel as if you are flying the ground is far beneath you so you never feel as if you are falling. It feels like floating, euphoric almost

      1 · April 19, 2014

  • Asif A.

    Folks: I have made a group reservation under my name. Please my name to look up the reservation and make a $50 payment against it for April 26th. The number to call and make a reservation is[masked]-5867.

    Asif, when do you need to know by for the reservations? I may be able to make it, not sure yet though.

    April 15, 2014

    • Asif A.

      @hana - It is going to be good. The more the merrier. You can make reservations until before 24 hours of the event. I suggest earlier so that can ensure that they have enough transportation and people.

      1 · April 16, 2014

    • Hanaa

      Sounds good, thanks Asif

    It has to be on a Saturday for me to attend.

    I did it before out of Monterey and it's a gorgeous jump!

    For any who ate afraid, I did it to overcome my fear of heights and once you jump it feels like you are floating!!

    1 · March 18, 2014

    • Heidi K.

      Too bad you picked the 12th. Now I can't go :-(

      March 29, 2014

  • Asif A.

    Folks: Want to know if changing the date to another week or two later is ok. There are only a few RSVPs and I'd love for us to have a larger crowd. Please respond.

    1 · April 3, 2014

    • Harris M

      I won't be around on the 12th, but don't change the date if you have enough people. Best practice: Pick a date that's best for you and whoever comes, comes :p

      April 4, 2014

    • Asif A.

      @harris - I have changed the date to 26th April. Please let me know if this is okay.

    Take a look at this link it is saying mostly cloudy on the 12th of April. If they are right, they won't let you jump.
