This is definitely a busy and professional place to do your sky diving jump. My first time was with a different company close to Bakersfield.

Having had the experience from another company I think I can say GoJump is a nice place to do your first jump. It welcomes you with open arms. Check in, filling out the forms and paying is very quick and clear.

The waiting time depends on a number of people. We spent probably around 2 hours waiting. Don't worry, they have water, free wi-fi, and cool people.

The instructors are really cool, as usual, like everywhere else.

The only difference from other places:
You get a comic book about sky diving, your name, instructors name, date, and signature on the last page. This basically replaces a jump certificate so you won't actually get a certificate.
Many places give you a free T-shirt. This place doesn't. Not a big deal.
A definite plus is you have a view of the ocean when you jump. That's why I decided to come here. It's beautiful.

The check out was a little rushed and confusing but that's all.

"If you have no regrets from the life you have lived, your biggest regret should be the life you haven't lived." - Robert Sauber

Friends, I've been feeling rather blah as of late. So in order to feel like living again, I decided to do something crazy. Recently, I checked skydiving off of my lifetime bucket list. I went with GoJump Oceanside because of the proximity to my home, the fact that you are near the ocean and have ocean views during your jump, plus they had a Groupon running for $149 (normally $199). I also applied a Groupon promo code for additional savings. My jump ended up being ~$120 so I decided to buy the hand cam video package for $60.
The additional packages are as follows:
Handcam pictures or video: $60
Both handcam pictures and videos: $90
Outside camera man pictures or video: $90
Outside camera man pictures and videos: $120
I chose the video because it's easy to screenshot photos for Facebook. If you want printable high resolution photos, get both pictures and video. Totally up to you. I think it's worthwhile to get documentation of the activity since you may never do it again. Basically, PICTURES or it didn't happen! Originally, I was okay with just going by myself but I found out that Morgan H. has always wanted to go skydiving as well and she joined me on my adventure. Her sister also joined us too. I'm glad we were able to share the experience together.

Purchasing the package and applying the Groupon to the appointment was a piece of cake. Also, changing the appointment date was also easy but you need to call in. You have up until 48 hours prior to your appointment to reschedule. GoJump did text us in the morning telling us due to unfavorable weather conditions, our jump would be postponed for 2-3 hours but we still needed to show up 15 minutes prior to our scheduled time to check in. Our time was 11 am and we were expected there at 10:45 am. We checked in, filled out the liability waivers, and were told to check back in at 12 pm. So we went off-site to wander around the Shops at Carlsbad to kill some time. We returned at the time they told us and had to wait another 45 minutes or so to meet our instructors.

Be sure to wear some comfortable clothes and shoes that tie so you don't lose them. Ladies should tie their hair in buns or braids to keep the hair from getting stuck in the harness on the way down. We were given a 15 minute instruction on proper position, interview, and put on our respective harnesses. My instructor was Mikey Max. He went over everything I needed to know and he strapped me into my harness. He did multiple checks and was recording everything as he went. We were informed that the ascent would take about 20 minutes to reach 13,000 feet and we would jump one by one. There were a few professional skydivers who went with us and they left first. Our group was at the front of the plane, so we went last. Morgan jumped with her tandem instructor first, then it was my turn and then Paige. There wasn't too much time to think as I was headed towards the exit door. I just had to remember to hold on to my harness and arch my body so as to break the wind resistance.

There's this 50-55 second freefall where the wind is really loud as you're falling at 120 mph towards the ground. It's intense and now I know what it feels like to fall out of a plane. Then as we reached a certain altitude, Mikey pulled the parachute and everything quieted down. A sense of calm washed over me and I was ecstatic. What a rush! We did a few turns in the air with the parachute and he landed us safely on the ground. The whole thing probably took all of 4 minutes and it was the BEST thing ever! I was definitely glad I didn't eat right before jumping and was really starved after. We had to wait for them to give us our USB drives with our videos but after that we were free to leave. They give you a little book with your jump certificate information in case you want to get your skydive license and a $10 off coupon for your next jump. Don't forget to tip your instructor! We left around 2 pm so it took about 4 hours. GoJump Oceanside is a great place to get in your first or next skydive. Everyone was professional and despite the wait, it was worth it. I highly recommend them.
