Skydiving Gainesville, FL

Serving UF and Gainesville Since 1982


Are you ready to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush skydiving near Gainesville, FL? The adventure of a lifetime awaits you at Skydive DeLand. Our skydiving center is located 94 miles southeast of Gainesville, FL. Hundreds of UF students and Gainesville locals regularly come to jump with us. If you’re looking for the ultimate weekend study break, why not join us for a skydive and spend the weekend at the beach? We are located only 30 minutes from the coast.


Founded in 1982, Skydive DeLand is nestled in the skydiving capital of the world. It’s THE place where competitive teams train to become world champions and where skydiving world records are broken. While we have a thriving fun jumper community here, we are just as passionate about introducing first-time jumpers to the sport of skydiving. First-time jumpers can choose to make their first jump attached to an experienced instructor (tandem skydiving) or they can make their very first jump solo through our learn to skydive/AFF program.
