Founded in 1990 Icarus Bungee has the experience to run a safe and efficient operation, we have a perfect safety record with no accidents or injuries.
Icarus Bungee coordinates legal bungee jumping within a five hour drive of the San Francisco bay area. A bungee jumping expedition includes instruction, equipment and supervision of the jumps from different bridge sites located in Northern California.
There are 14 different bridges in Northern California that Icarus Bungee jumps from.
The bridge locations are within a five hour drive of San Francisco. Be prepared to drive the maximum distance. (The closest bridge to San Francisco is 2 1/2 hours drive.)
Locations vary because of changing conditions. Roads are affected by river & lake flooding, severe weather, mudslides, landslides, snow, forest fires, logging & mining operations. Because conditions can change rapidly (especially during winter months), the location will not be selected until the Wednesday before the jump.
The heights vary from a minimum of 120' (36 m) to 220' (70 m)
Due to wet or dry years some bridges are not available every year.
Directions to the location will be sent to the group organizer the Wednesday evening before the scheduled jump. Please do not ask where the bridge location will be prior to the scheduled send date, you will not be told. Bridge locations are a carefully guarded trade secret. Please be discrete about giving the location to anyone after receipt.
Icarus Bungee respects private property and does not jump from privately owned bridges without permission. Government owned bridges are the common property of all citizens and are thus fair game. Discretion & Jumping early in the morning avoids the problems of disrupting traffic or creating a public nuisance with spectators.
Jumping Days: Icarus Bungee will book individuals and groups for jumping on scheduled expeditions. There will be at least one scheduled expedition per Month. Jumps will be executed in the very early morning (Sunrise) or on the rare occasional evening.
Age: If you are under 18 years old your Parent or Legal Guardian must sign a parental consent form to jump with Icarus Bungee. All jumpers will be required to sign a release form before jumping can begin.
Weight: If a jumper's weight is in doubt, he/she will be weighed on our scales. Weight is a safety matter that Icarus Bungee takes very seriously. A jumper's weight determines the number of cords to be used. We have a limit of 250 lbs.
Group Size: (1-15) We prefer to jump about ten people in a three hour time block.
Group Organizer: All groups should have one individual who is designated as the Group Organizer, It is then the responsibility of the organizer to pass along information to other members of the group. The group organizer will also be responsible for collecting money from all the members of the group and making payments to Icarus Bungee.
Reservations: All trips require advance reservations. Full payment is non-refundable when within two weeks of the jump date. When planning a bungee jumping trip we recommend that you make payments only after collecting payment from each member of your group.
Cancellations and Refunds: Advance payments are refundable up to two weeks prior to the jump. Prior to two weeks before the jump date a $25.00 cancellation fee will subtracted for each jumper from refunds. Payments are not refundable for cancellations within two weeks of the jump date or no-shows. If there are any changes in group size the group organizer must call. Rain checks will only be offered when Icarus Bungee calls jumps off due to severe weather conditions.
