Amazing Experience, great instructor and cameraman. Felt very safe and assured all the way throughout. Would definitely try again!

Think skydiving is only for the pros? Think again! Tandem skydiving allows you to dive while being strapped in with a partner who is generally an experienced instructor who knows the ins and outs of skydiving. As you jump from your aircraft at 13,000ft with the instructor, experience the most thrilling adventure sport of your life! You will also get to enjoy a 60-second free fall later.

SkyDive Dubai is the biggest name in adventure sports in the city. Having taken the lead in terms of providing high-quality services when it comes to aerial sports, they have developed an incredible location in Dubai, offering the most awe-inspiring views as the setting for your once in a lifetime experience flight experience, which is the Desert Drop Zone located in the heart of the city.

Are you ready for the ultimate bucket list experience? Look no further than tandem skydiving with Skydive Dubai! Imagine soaring high above the vast golden sands of the Arabian Desert, the breathtaking views stretching out below you as you prepare to take the plunge.

The Prep before the Excitement

Make your way to the Desert Drop Zone on the day of your reservations. The experience will take 3-4 hours from start to finish - from registration upon arrival to the final landing. After registration and waiver forms are filled out, and your BMI is calculated for safety reasons, a spot for you will be reserved on one of SkyDubai's aircraft.

You will spend around 2 hours completing the health check, registration, and initial instructions. 30 mins before you board the plane, your instructor will walk through the skydive, give you a safety briefing, and let you know about the best positions for the free fall that is soon to come. Once you wear your harness, you're ready to go!

With an upgraded ticket, you will be accompanied by a camera flyer who will interview you prior to boarding (be sure to smile every time you see them!). You will then be taken to the boarding area, taking pictures all the while, as safety checks are conducted on all equipment and the aircraft itself.

Dive through the Dubai Sky

Start your adventure by boarding the aircraft. As you ascend, you get a chance to feast your eyes on the breathtaking views of the ocean of sand beneath. The ride on the way up is 20 mins long and right before you reach exit altitude, a whopping 13,000 ft or 4,000m, you will be harnessed to the front of your instructor and checked over once more before jumping from the aircraft. Then, enjoy a freefall for a full 60 seconds! Don't forget to smile for the camera as you do. Your parachute will finally deploy at 6000 ft, following which you will have up to 5 minutes of a relatively relaxing parachute ride, allowing you to get your bearings and admire the incredible views of the surrounding areas as you descend.

The rest is better experienced than told, but we can guarantee, you're not bound to forget it any time soon!
