Skydive Sebastian - The Guide

So Your in the mood to see some new sites but aren't sure on a location. You want stellar views and super rad people. Hmmm - Well my friends Skydive Sebastian is the location you have been looking for, Sebastian is by far one of the most amazing locations I have ever been to, from the facilities to the People and views, Sebastian is a must. Located on Florida’s treasure coast and only a few miles from the beach you will find that you will need more than a week to see it all.  Skydive Sebastian is a medium size drop zone with a strong family feel. From the moment you arrive you will be surrounded the amazing views and people. Pack your car and and make sure to check them out. I hope you enjoy Sebastian as much as we did, PussFoot will be back this year for sure so make sure to come out and say hi!!!! Oh and did I mention that we will be holding our annual boogie here in November- Hint Hint******

We at Pussfoot love taking road trips. Road trips give us the opportunity to meet amazing people and visit new drop zones. Having our own car on a skydiving adventure gives us a sense of safety and an additional place to store belongings. So if you are like us and are going to drive there are some things to know.

*

  

*

*Use Waze - this will route you around traffic and show you all of the police. This app should save you some time on your journey.

*If you are coming from the NE let's say New York - trust me stay on 95 unless Waze tells you to exit. Just like Mom Waze knows best!

*Do you really need to bring that? Pack light, you are still in America and can stop to get whatever you need.

*Get a BP rewards card. You will earn $ 0.10 off a gallon for every 20 you buy. * There are BP gas stations all the way down. This last trip I saved over $50.00 in fuel using one. ( I cannot stress this car enough! I have saved thousands of dollars over the last three years. Link https://www.mybpstation.com/bp-driver-rewards )

*Remember to take breaks, switch drivers and stay hydrated and fueled up. The most important part of any road trip is enjoying the journey, no need to rush!

 

Arriving at DZ:

*

                             spotted the DZ 

     So you made it! Do you know where you are staying? Do not forget to check in to the Manifest when they are open so you can fill out you waver and be given an orientation. If you will be arriving after hrs, make sure to let management know you will be late. If you are camping make sure to visit the manifest when you wake up to check in.

My advice would be to stay at the DZ for your trip. Every night brings the chance for some fun. From the Zoo Bar to Tiki - something is always going on and trust me you do not want to miss a second of it.

Camping:

5 stars + *****

Open field and wooded area with with shade, RV’s welcome.

If bringing your RV please call ahead to let them know and assign you a spot!

Campfire (yes) -please use fire pit located by the packing hangar!

The DZ has wood but if you like, you can get bundles of wood from Tractor supply located just up the road for $5.00 a bundle.

***************

 Below you will find a map of Skydive Sebastian.  Look for the red arrow that says Camping area. Just pull in and set up your tent, I have also marked the RV area. (Be mindful of the signage). If it is late try to be quiet because there may be people trying to sleep.  You will also find the bathroom marked on Map. * I found that this tent city is extremely safe, nothing was stolen. There is always someone watching out for your gear.  With that being said you never know who might not be part of the Skydive Code. So take care to lock up whatever you can and be mindful of your stuff. Need a tent and or camping supplies, don't forget that an unnamed large have it all store is located nearby and has an unconditional 90 day return policy.

Things to see:

OK so this is Florida’s treasure coast, and I found the weather to be typical for florida. With that being said it will rain at some point. So what do you do on a weather hold?  Well if you think you are done for the day feel free to grab a beer and chill at the zoo bar. However, if you think the day could be saved and want to keep jumping here are a few things to do.

* Ask manifest for ideas they are full of info!

In closing Pussfoot had an epic time at Skydive Sebastian. Although we were there for a short time, we were able to meet some amazing people and get in some stellar jumps. From the Staff to the fun jumpers, the vibe is amazing. This Dropzone will for sure remain on my favorite dropzone list. In the end it's the people and memories we have made that count and this dropzone is sure to provide plenty. Don't forget that Skydive Sebastian hosts a few boogies every year, so make sure to check them out. Oh and don't forget to let Robert Kraft know that i said he is a tool :-P
