Best Time of Day to Skydive

There is no one day that’s better than any other to skydive – as long as the skies are blue and the winds are manageable!

The weekend, particularly Saturday, tends to be the busiest for skydiving centers because people flock to the dropzone when they’re off from work. However, we highly recommend exploring other days when there’s less traffic.

Attending on a weekday can provide an even better experience because the dropzone staff is not as busy and there’s a more casual laid-back vibe.

Slower is better

When booking your reservation ahead of time, it’s impossible to know what the weather will hold. As long as it’s (finger’s crossed) nice on the day you visit Skydive San Marcos, the day of week won’t alter your experience in the slightest.

Skydiving is an intimate experience between you and your tandem instructor. The happenings on the ground won’t matter when you’re flying two miles above the Earth’s surface.

But when the dropzone is quiet, usually during the weekday, your instructors have much more time and flexibility to provide you with all the instruction you need. Rather than having to get to the next reservation upon landing, they’ll be able to sit with you, talk over the dive, answer all your questions and then rehash it during your debrief.

When it’s slower, the dropzone is also a more laid-back place. On the weekends, with planes churning out loads and new people constantly flushing in and out, the dropzone is bustling with activity. We love the activity, but it is more intimate experience on the slower days.

Earlier is better

Especially during the summer, reservations made earlier in the day are better. In the mornings, the temperature tends to be cooler, which you’ll appreciate. During the sticky summer months in Texas, temperatures can easily exceed 90 degrees. However, the heat won’t bother you while your in the sky, freefalling back to Mother Earth!

The lighting is also much better for videos and photos in the mornings! But if you can’t come that early, don’t let that deter you. Skydiving is ridiculously awesome no matter when you come! So pick a time that works for you and we’ll make sure you have the best experience possible.
