April Tourism Spotlight
Skydive Sebastian
400 Airport Drive West
Sebastian, FL 32958


Skydive at one of the most scenic and safest drop zones in the world!
Skydive Sebastian is proud to be a destination drop zone for skydivers all around the world. We operate a world renown school training first time skydivers as well as experienced skydivers. Join us for a tandem skydive or to learn to skydive. 
Two world records were set in March at Skydive Sebastian where jumpers from the US, Canada, Poland, Germany, South America, France, Spain, Norway, and Sweden traveled to train and participate in this spectacular jump. The first was a 37 way canopy formation 2 point sequential. The second was a 36 way night canopy formation. During this event 150 skydivers jumped repeatedly for 10 days. 
At the end of March 2019 we hosted head-up world record tryouts. The world record attempts for head up flying will occur this summer in Chicago. 80 participants flew in from around the world to participate. 
Why wait? Skydive to experience freedom or check it off your bucket list. There is no falling sensation. This spectacular opportunity is in your backyard. 
Even if you don’t want to jump, spectators are free and welcome. Come enjoy lunch and refreshments at our onsite cafe, The Zoo Bar Cafe and Grille, while you marvel at the array of skill of the canopy pilots.
