How do I book a tandem skydive?

How To Book a First Time Tandem Skydive

Booking a tandem skydive is very simple and similar to booking a commercial flight. Most skydiving centers offer online booking options but you can always call to book, especially if you have other questions about the experience.


You’ve decided to book a jump at Skydive Silicon Valley? GREAT CHOICE! Now you’re wondering how to actually get yourself into the system. You can give us a call at 1800FUNJUMP (800-386-5867) and we'll take care of setting your appointment over the phone. Another option is to do it online by following the instructions below or by clicking on this link: book now.


If you’re still unsure, you’re in luck, because this article will walk you through the tandem skydive booking process, step-by-step!


Step One: Find the Calendar

Navigate to skydivehollister.com, then click on “Book Now.” On the bookings option page, click “Online Booking.” This will open a page to our booking software portal, Burble.


Step Two: Enter the Number of Jumpers

Indicate for how many jumpers you wish to book. Keep in mind that flights are limited to 4 tandem seats, so if you have a larger party you’ll need to complete reservations for multiple time slots.


Step Three: Choose your Jump Day

Using the calendar of available days and slots, choose the day you wish to skydive. After you pick a day you can choose your time slot. This is your arrival time! Make sure to plan for up to about a three hour day from start to finish.


Step Four: Enter your information & choose your jump.

Enter your first name, last name, email address, and phone number into the provided boxes. Then use the dropdown menu to choose either the 18k Skydive (up to 90 seconds freefall!), 13k Jump (about a minute of freefall!), or 8k (we recommend instead 13k or 18k!).

This is also where you can choose to pay in full or hold your seats with just a $50 booking deposit. Make sure you bring cash for the remainder!


Step Five: Agree to Our Terms & Conditions

Just like everywhere else, we need you to acknowledge our policies and make you aware of certain things. Read through the provided list carefully and check the box once you understand well enough to agree. Once you’re done, click Agree and Continue.

Step Six: Finalize Your Skydive Booking

Enter your credit card information on the final page including number, expiration date, security code, and full billing address. After clicking submit, a successful transaction will automatically send you to a confirmation page. That same page is what you will receive via email as a Skydive Reservation Confirmation. Follow the steps from there, and we’ll see you on Jump Day!
