How Much Does It Cost To Go Skydiving?

Wednesday, June 28, 2023

If you’ve ever wondered about the cost of skydiving and how much it costs to jump out of a plane, you’re not alone. Skydiving is a breathtaking adventure that offers an unforgettable experience that has the actual potential to change your life. However, before taking the leap, it’s essential to consider the skydiving prices and understand all of the costs that go into skydiving. Tandem skydiving prices usually range anywhere from $200 to over $300 depending on which skydiving center you choose to jump at and other services you choose to add on. But, let’s explore the factors that influence skydiving costs and provide some insights into the expenses associated with this thrilling activity.

When it comes to the question, “How much does skydiving cost?”, the answer can vary depending on several factors. First and foremost, it depends on the dropzone you choose to jump at. We recommend doing some research to find the dropzone that not only best fits your budget but more importantly, fits your standards. In this situation, you get what you pay for – and when it comes to skydiving, you won’t exactly want to skimp on quality. So, here are some key factors that can determine skydiving pricing in your area:

  • Safety Rating

Each dropzone has its own safety rating and safety standard. At Skydive Snohomish, we are dedicated to upholding the highest safety standard by being active members of the United States Parachute Association (USPA).

  • Altitude/Aircraft

Skydiving costs are greatly affected by the aircraft used, its fuel costs, and the altitude it can achieve. We are proud to operate an Enhanced Cessna 182 and a Cessna Grand Caravan with an upgraded 850hp Blackhawk engine conversion, that can get you up to 14,000 ft (if you choose this package). 

  • Additional Services

Most dropzones offer some kind of photo/video package that you will definitely want to add to your skydive! A common regret we hear from our guests is that they didn’t add the video of their skydive. 

  • Experienced Instructors

The experience level of instructors is what makes your skydive even more enjoyable and memorable. At Skydive Snohomish, we only hire the best and most experienced instructors to ensure our guests are as comfortable as possible while flying through the big blue sky.

  • Amenities

An airstrip and a hangar are pretty much the bare bones of a skydiving center. We like to do things differently here at our family-owned and operated dropzone. We have world-class facilities that turn your skydiving experience into a fun and exciting venue for everyone! Our immaculate amenities come with unlimited entertainment like cornhole, ladder ball, frisbees, and more to keep you and your hype crew entertained while waiting for your time to jump. After a day of jumping, you can refuel at our on-site restaurant, Buzz Inn Steakhouse. You may never want to leave!

  • Special Discounts/Group Rates

Some dropzones offer special discounted rates, promotions, and group rates that you can take advantage of.

Tandem skydiving is the most popular option for beginners who want to spread their wings for the first time. In a tandem jump, you are harnessed to a professionally certified tandem instructor who will guide you throughout the entire experience. Here at Skydive Snohomish, our tandem skydiving prices start at $260/person, which includes your 30-minute ground school pre-training, airplane flight, freefall, and parachute ride.


At Skydive Snohomish, we offer a few options to upgrade your tandem skydiving package.

Double Freefall – $35

At Skydive Snohomish, we like to have our guests experience more adventure by having the option to add on double the freefall time. What does this mean? For $35 extra, you can increase your freefall time from 30 seconds to 60 seconds by jumping from a higher altitude! A normal tandem skydive will be performed anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 feet. If you choose to add on the extra freefall time, your skydive will be performed anywhere from 12,000 to 14,000 feet!

Hi-Def Video and Photos – $97

Our video plus photos package captures high-quality footage of your skydiving experience from start to finish: on the ground before boarding, the airplane ride up to altitude, your freefall, parachute ride, and landing for just $97! No need to wait around after your jump, your media will be sent to you electronically within hours after your skydive. We send your video in three different video edits so you have the option to share the full video of your jump, an edited video capturing the highlights of your experience for social media (without having to edit the video yourself), and a video that focuses on capturing the rush of freefall.
