Skydiving doesn't necessarily come to mind when one thinks of Melbourne Beach - but if you travel a few miles south to Sebastian, you'll find the sport alive and well. The view from 14,000 feet is spectacular - SkyDive Sebastian has a worldwide reputation for excellence and an unparalleled safety record. You'll find people from all over the globe camping out in their tents right next to the hangars, and the sounds of Eric Clapton and other favorite artists wafting out of the main building lend a relaxed feel to an otherwise potentially nerve-wracking sport. My friends and I dove tandem on our lunchbreak one day, during a regular workweek. Can you beat that?
