Skydive Santa Barbara is the premier dropzone in central California. We’re located on the scenic central coast (and wine belt!), halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Whether you’ve been considering a tandem jump for quite some time and just haven’t made the leap yet, a fun jumper looking to visit SSB in the future, or just like to keep up on cool things happening in the skydive world, this blog is for you.

Here are a few quick facts about Skydive Santa Barbara:

  • We’ve made over 300,000 jumps since 1997
  • SSB DZO (owner) is a former British and World Skydive Champion
  • Our dropzone is on the famous Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1)
  • We have the fastest climbing jump plane in the United States
