This is probably the most relaxed DZ I've jumped at. All of the staff and jumpers are friendly and make you feel right at home. The Caravan, that is leased through '07, was great!
I decided to take a long lunch break and make the drive up to Toledo from Portland on a beautiful Monday in May. When I showed up at noon there wasn't anything going on and the place looked deserted. By one thirty things were happening and I was on a Caravan load to 14k. By three thirty I was packing from my second jump of the day. So much for a long lunch break...
Make the trip and put the word out, this place is where it's at in the great Northwest!

A great place to jump.


Skydive Monterey Bay Rated 5 by: 3hawk on 2007-01-12

Pros: A bad ass KING AIR to 18k AGL in about 7 minutes with great views!
Cons: Needs more fun jumpers, van ride from landing area to packing area.

We called at 8am on a Friday to see if anything was happening. The girl on the phone said we could get on a load at 11am. We got to the DZ a little early to waiver and gear up. We were in the air by 12:30 in their King Air. The ride to 18k was amazing with great views of Monterey bay and the Pacific Ocean. It took all of 7 minutes to get to altitude.

The staff was helpful and friendly. It seems like they cater mostly to tandems but they try to accomidate fun jumpers as well.

I'll gladly recommend Skydive Monterey Bay to anyone. I look forward to going back!

I felt right at home here. Urban, the owner, was friendly and professional. I received some good info and training for my "A" license. I was able to get on a load right away, and made two jumps in about three hours (not bad for Oregon). It was worth the drive down from Portland!

After the fog cleared we got in three jumps from 13,500. All of the staff was very helpful, and offered BOC training to my partner (free of charge). We loved the twin otter. Comming from an Oregon Cessna drop zone, we were spoiled with the Florida sun and the fast climb to altitude. Busy, but well worth the trip!

I love this dropzone! The staff is great. The facility is top notch. Once you get up in the Cessna you will experience the beauty of Central Oregon (310 days of sun per year) I did some of my early training at this dropzone. Bob and Mark helped me get over some of my problem areas in a proactive manner. I highly recomend this dropzone!

The winds can be tricky, but are not a problem.

I liked this dropzone. Nothing like seeing Diamond Head and the open Pacific before exiting the plane.

Loads are crowded. Alot of tandems for the tourists. It took about an hour and a half to get on my first load.

I had my first cutaway here. I got alot of support.

The staff really helped me out with the jumps I made. I was invited to join a 4-way.

Overall, a good, solid dropzone!
