Great place for a tandem jump, super scammy vibe though

Skydive Monterey Bay Rated 3 by: sheeks on 2018-10-23

Pros: Great tandem view and experience, hella awesome
Cons: They like to lie a lot

They added a 6% "fuel fee" to the price of a tandem with absolutely ZERO mention of it on their website. Their policy basically says, "we have the right to change prices on you with absolutely zero notice."

They also seem to do a great deal of time promoting how they have the "World's Highest Tandem" at 18,000 feet, even though that's a complete lie. There's countless other dropzones that offer 18,000 foot plus tandems everywhere. I'm not sure why they have to try and lie to people, when they can just run an honest business with integrity.

The actual jump was pretty breath-takingly amazing, with rainbows in the clouds from the ocean mist and everything.

But, it's a pretty hollow company with no real integrity behind their words.

Great first time experience

Skydive Monterey Bay Rated 5 by: Nishu309 on 2018-09-05

Pros: Location, experienced instructor
Cons: Aircraft is small

Staff and Instructor are very knowledgeable and friendly. Loved the overall experience and the location for the dive is very scenic. The plane is a bit small but it's not a major hassle as you spend like 10 mins or less in the plane. You get to see the monterey bay during your dive. My instructor Eli was pretty cool and experienced. The jump and landing was very smooth and I didn't experienced any pain. A big thanks to Eli for creating this great first experience of skydiving

Time of our lives!

Skydive Monterey Bay Rated 5 by: Tarynbeth on 2018-09-01

Pros: Competent and professional staff! Amazing views
Cons: Nothing will ever measure up to this first jump

This was my first jump, my sonís second and we did 18,000 feet tandem. I was with Brent and did not have even a single apprehension. In fact, I felt zen and relaxed throughout the entire jump. From the front desk staff, to the pilot, to Cameron our videographer (loved him), to my instructor Brent it was one of the best experiences of my life. Wish I lived here Iíd learn to do it solo! Only bad thing about doing it here my first time is Iím afraid nothing will ever measure up! Thank you so much, Skydive Monterey Bay!

Skydive here!

Skydive Monterey Bay Rated 5 by: Lorainevm on 2018-08-12

Pros: Great Customer Service
Cons: Long wait to jump but understandable

Skydive Monterey Bay is the BEST tandem and solo skydiving company I have ever jumped with. My two jumps were the best experiences ever with this same company and the only I would ever consider. Eli and Raff are the best skydive masters to tandem with. Customer service is top of the line and the process from beginning to end was smooth. Thank you so much for the best experience ever.
