If you’re looking for a way to celebrate your birthday this year, there’s no better adventure than visiting Skydive the Gulf in Pensacola and Mobile.

In addition to experiencing an unforgettable freefall above the beautiful Gulf coast, you also receive $20 off video and picture packages during your birthday week.

For a birthday bucket list experience, set up a tandem skydive today at our dropzone near Pensacola, Mobile, Gulf Shores, and Orange Beach.


Spending Your Birthday At Skydive the Gulf

Here are two different scenarios for waking up on your birthday.

Scenario A:

You wake up, check your texts and Instagram birthday shout outs, and maybe open a few presents. Then, you have a relatively normal day — just with about 200 more texts than usual and maybe a surprise visit from grandma.

Scenario B:

You wake up ready to celebrate, so you enter “skydiving near me” into Google and happen upon Skydive the Gulf. You grab a group of friends and head to our dropzone right by Pensacola. You get briefed and get to know your tandem master. Then, you climb 10,500 feet over the stunning Gulf of Mexico. Your best buddies are next to you, each in a different mental state of hype. Next thing you know, you’re flying through the sky as the cool ocean air whips through your hair. Your parachute deploys safely and you can enjoy the seven minutes under canopy, taking in the beautiful sites that only skydiving nearby can give you. Riding the adrenaline, you continue your party at the Flora-Bama Lounge and Beach Bar. For days and years to come, you remember the adventure (and perhaps can’t ever live down your free-falling facial expressions) thanks to our professional photo and video packages.

Choose Scenario B for an incredible birthday to remember at Skydive the Gulf in Pensacola.

While you can celebrate any birthday (if you’re 19 or older) at Skydive the Gulf, these are usually the most popular occasions:

  • 19th Birthdays — This might seem like a weird age to celebrate, but you must be 19 to jump at Skydive the Gulf. What better way to celebrate than skydiving nearby and riding the high for the rest of the day.
  • 21st Birthdays — You want to plan an epic 21st birthday party, and soaring through the sky is probably about as epic as it gets. Plus, Skydive the Gulf lands you right near the Flora-Bama Lounge and Beach Bar, so you can hangout at the bar after your skydive!

Video and Photo Skydive Packages

As we’ve mentioned, you get $20 off our video and photo packages on a weekday during your birthday week.

It might seem easy enough to just strap your own GoPro onto your helmet and take your own pictures, but this is actually highly prohibited in the world of skydiving. In fact, to operate a camera during freefall, an individual must have a specialized certification from the United States Parachute Association.

With our photo and video package, we capture every aspect of the skydive — from boarding the plane, ascending to 10,500 feet, standing in the door, free falling, and landing safely, we get it all. Check out our gallery to see exactly how cool the footage looks.
