WHY WE STAND OUT?
25+ YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE
Back in 1996 was when drop zone owners Ronaldo and Vitor started their skydiving career. They’ve been both involved in the skydiving sport and industry ever since, not only jumping but working with first jump skydive students, advanced skydiving students, jump records and world championships. Having most of their life dedicated to skydiving both dropped their careers as big corporate officers and engineers, to move and skydive in California, and to become full time skydiving entreprenuers.
WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW BEFORE BOOKING YOUR TANDEM SKYDIVE EXPERIENCE
In our VIP Skydiving Experience article we compare skydiving centers with restaurants, and they are similar on some level in regards to the customer experience aspects. Just like restaurants, some skydiving places are nice, while others stand out. With our time and experience we know for a fact that, for most people, their first skydive experience becomes a major event in their lives. We know that a great tandem skydive is far more than getting out of a flying airplane, just like an amazing dining experience goes afar the food taste and the check amount. Unused to all the aspects that involve a great skydiving experience, many first time jumpers are inclined to book their tandem skydives based solely on price and distance, usually choosing the closest and cheapest offer. Although distance only plays in your favour, price will certainly not be like that. Our opinion is; Do you research, check reviews. Yeah, do just like we do on online dates nowadays … silly! Online-stalk them and you’ll quickly get a very good perspective of their vibe and culture.
SAN JOSE – TANDEM SKYDIVE PRICES
California has been one of the nests of parachuting and skydiving since the activity became available to civilians, this caused many drop zones to be opened in the state, elevating the competition level. While the tandem skydiving price averages at $259 across the United States, skydiving in California and in the Bay Area has an average price of $199. Although skydiving cost is similar to every business and this seems to be only good for the customers, you should have in mind that the price will translate into the type of experience you’ll get, and make sure you’re aware of their extra fees.
Our skydive prices near San Jose, places Silicon Valley Skydiving on the same level as our competitors, although we have no hidden fees and our price point allows everything and everyone to be well taken care of.
