Boarding a  plane, ascending high into the sky, waiting for the doors to open? It is slightly different from your normal commercial flight experience with American or Delta Airlines! Intentionally jumping out with a tandem instructor strapped on your back isn’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea. However, for anyone who has the courage and motivation to take the highest step of their life into free-fall is up for THE greatest experience of their life. Skydiving is unlike any other feeling and it’s nearly impossible to replicate, making it truly unique and unforgettable.

Located in Elberta, Alabama, Skydive the Gulf is about 40 minutes west of Pensacola and just under an hour Southeast of Mobile, Alabama. We are your number one skydiving center for fantastic views of the coast, Mobile Bay, Bon Secour Bay, Perdido Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico.
