Best Skydiving Los Angeles 2012 

Skydive Coastal California

The takeoff point for the impressive 12-minute flight to your dropzone might not be in L.A. — it's actually at the Camarillo Airport — but make no mistake, you will see L.A.! If you can keep your eyes open, that is. Sound scary? Don't worry, Skydive Coastal California specializes in first-time jumpers. The friendly staff with a generous sense of humor helps to get you out of the plane at 14,000 feet — because they are strapped to you, of course. Leave all the technicalities to them and free your mind as you experience what 120 mph freefall feels like for more than 40 seconds. If this sounds even mildly exciting to you, just do it. 375 Durley Ave., Ste. B, Camarillo. (805) 322-4763, skydivecoastalcalifornia.com.
