Tsunami Skydivers is owned and operated by Rich Grimm, a long time skydiver and recently retired career firefighter. Since 2005 Rich has taken skydivers from around the world once per year to exotic locations such as Belize and Nicaragua, to skydive, SCUBA and have a great vacation. Safety is our number one priority. We have two basic rules for our jumpers…BE SAFE, HAVE FUN!
Tsunami Skydivers is a United States Parachute Association Group Member Drop Zone. That means we have pledged to operate our facility to the highest known industry safety standards. Our gear is brand new and state of the art, made in America. Our instructors have thousands of skydives and the pilots are trained to the highest standards.
We offer a view on the ride to altitude and during the skydive that CANNOT be matched anywhere in Southern California! We are literally skydiving in the center of town, with incredible views and a great climate. We’re a 45 minute drive from downtown Anaheim and a 35 minute drive from downtown San Diego.
Some skydiving centers offer tandem skydives at a reduced price, which seems like a great deal, until the “up sell”, to go higher or get different video packages. At Tsunami Skydivers, EVERY jump goes up to 13,000ft. We offer video and photos for one packaged price. There is no confusion when you arrive.
We fly one jump plane that holds 14 skydivers. At Tsunami Skydivers you will be met by a smile and treated like a friend, not a number. Your instructor will know your name and take the time to explain everything about your skydive and answer any questions you may have. We’ll even give you suggestions for lunch or dinner at some of our favorite Oceanside dining spots.
We offer gift certificates for that special present and also offer military and group discounts. We accept all major credit cards. No personal checks, please.
CAUTION! There are a couple of misleading websites out there. SkydiveOceanside.com and OceansideSkydiving.com are “middle men” based in Georgia. We are NOT affiliated with them in any way and we DO NOT accept their gift certificates. We are NOT associated with Skydive America California. They are no longer operating out of the Oceanside Airport.
Tsunami Skydivers is the only real skydiving center in Oceanside.
With Tsunami Skydivers all of our beginning skydives are made with an experienced Tandem Skydiving Instructor, certified by the United States Parachute Association.
Tandem Skydiving is the safest and most rewarding way to start your skydiving adventure. Typically you will make 2 or 3 Tandem training skydives. Once you have experienced the thrill and adrenaline filled excitement of Skydiving with us, we can refer you to our affiliated skydiving center for continued Accelerated Free Fall training (AFF). Welcome to the sport of Skydiving!
